    Overall, this was an exciting and enjoyable trip with numerous highlights. The most outstanding things for me were the: frescoed monasteries and churches, the mountain scenary including the gorges and caves, the historical and attractive city of Plovdiv and the interesting heritage villages with their traditional architecture. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and in good locations. The transport was comfortable and all journeys were less than 2 hours. The guide was very knowledgeable,... (more)Stuart Bates

    Everything was very good. The genuine welcome from every host hotel or guesthouse was excellent. Staying in guesthouses and eating their normal local food. Highlights were Veliko Tarnovo (especially Hotel Gurko), Plovdiv, and the hosts at Boyana Guest House (Vratsa) & Guest House Deshka (Gorno Draglishte) were great fun. (more)Tim Morgan
    Both Plovdiv and Rile were interesting and enjoyable and despite communication problems the two homestays were interesting if challenging and the hosts we very friendly and kind. (more)Rodney Mount

    Brown bear watching vacation in Bulgaria
    From
    US $1,545
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Spending time in the bear hides and being able to watch mother and cubs for over an hour. Tips? Be realistic about what wildlife you are going to see; i.e. walking in largish group (12 + guide) and wariness of local wildlife. Definitely take binoculars for watching bears / other wildlife from hide. Local benefits? Use of small village hotel, local driver and nature reserve guides benefitted local people. Because more and more people are visiting the area with... (more)Simon Knock

    Memorable parts? I hate this question! The whole week was wonderful, and when the group was asked which walk they had enjoyed the most, everyone had the same trouble picking one! This was a walking trip geared towards fit experienced mountain walkers (warning for anyone thinking it is easy hiking in these Bulgarian mountains, read the blurb with care!), so the days were hard with steep climbs and long descents. The rewards were huge, amazing views, great biodiversity and a country that values... (more)Olive O

    Memorable parts? I enjoyed the whole vacation, we were particularly lucky with the weather and although August is getting a little late there were still some flowers to see. The caves were particularly interesting. Still quite a few flowers to see Tips? Possibly to take a travel plug for the wash basin. Local benefits? Presumably as we stayed in a family run hotel which employed local people then it did benefit the local people. Overall rating? I thoroughly enjoyed... (more)Caroyl Mead

    Memorable parts? The wildness of the mountains and the unspoilt terrain and spectacular views. Tips? London Local benefits? We stayed in a small family run hotel in a small village. Local produce was used as much as possible. Overall rating? Very good. I learnt a lot about Bulgaria, about the wild life in the Rodope mountains and how this is being preserved. The people working in the hotel were very helpful and friendly and our guide and driver were excellent in every... (more)Mary Bolton

    The most memorable was the variety of terrain walking through the Seven Rila Lakes; forests, mountains, frozen lakes, granite, ice and snow, and the warm welcome from everyone I met along the way. (more)Nicola Farrington
    The most exciting part was to be able to see & enjoy the country in the snow which would not have been possible without snow shoes. (more)Alan Reimer
