Take a bicycle tour of Sofia to see landmarks like the impressive Vrana Palace, or head to seaside Varna to stroll its enchanting waterfront. If you love skiing and trekking, Bansko simply can’t be missed.

Rodopi Mountains
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“Excellent trip walking in the mountains and meadows of the Rodopi mountains. Lovely family run hotel with exellent food - very welcoming. We had a very peaceful and relaxing time in Yagodina and the walks were lovely - especially the time spent in the beautiful wildflower meadows.”
A great mixture of hiking and culture!
5 - Excellent
  • Debby Brooks
“I recently completed this trip with this local travel specialist and I cant rate this company highly enough. I took a group of friends and we wanted to see the highlights, while hiking our way through the country. First of all, the hiking was fantastic and rivaled our past trips through Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia and Germany but most of all, the services of the agency is what made our experience so outstanding. Our guide was stellar and catered to our needs while subtly changing things as we went to make sure we continuously had the best experience as he got to know us. Our accommodations were varied and always comfortable. I cant recommend them high enough. I am a tour organizer myself and my experience with the local travel expert has been one of the best to date. I sincerely dont think you can go wrong with trusting them with your vacation/travel plans.”
Thorough overview of the Balkans

  • Ilse Van Heerden
“I knew from the description that it would be a fast paced trip and that we would sleep in a different place each night and that’s exactly what I wanted = an overview so I could see whether I wanted to go back anywhere. If you’re like me, who enjoys going out for dinner and drinks each night, you would be very tired at the end of trip. However, many chose to stay in and go to bed and I believe for them the trip was not tiring, even for the older ones. Morning starts are reasonable - we left at 8am each day. Simon was a fabulous tour guide and the local guides were all wonderful. Do take small euro bills = you definitely need them. (also take coins for toilet stops). Definitely have a revolut, or similar, card. The optional activities, whilst nice,, are highly, highly over-priced, shame on the travel specialist! One thing I missed, was more. recommendations to authentic local food with local prices. All in all, a fabulous trip and I’m so glad I did it. I will use this agency again for their professionalism.”

Bulgaria - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

A trip to this Balkan nation offers attractions as diverse as its geography. With mountains and rivers calling out to the hiker and sunny beaches along the Black Sea luring the sun-bathers to its shores, this country truly offers something for everyone who is looking for an amazing vacation. Bulgaria’s cultural history is as varied as its attractions, with a history that includes the Greek, Ottoman, Slavic, and Persian peoples it is no wonder that a colorful history has produced such a fun-loving culture where the nightlife is as vibrant as any you could ask for along these Black Sea shores.

Tour Highlights

  • Sunny Beach is the place to be, with over 130 restaurants, and 800 hotels boasting of 300,000 rooms, as well as some of the most beautiful beaches, and beach goers, along the Black Sea coast.
  • Visit during the first week of June and take part in the Rose Festival, watch the rose parade, and maybe even meet the Rose Queen herself.
  • Want to see a cathedral that can accommodate 10,000 people at a time? Visit the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Sofia!
  • Smaller in size, but rich in history, the Bulgarian Orthodox Church features frescos that date to the 10th century for your consideration.
  • Take a hike to see the Seven Rila Lakes in the Northwestern Rila Mountains. Visit in July or August for the most favorable weather conditions.
  • For winter fun, try skiing or snowboarding in Bansko, just outside of Sofia. With ski season running from December to March there is plenty of time to schedule a vacation.

Travel Tips

  • For a change of pace, try taking a bike tour of Sofia, it is an active way to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
  • Public transportation is substandard, private busses, or taxis are a safer bet to get you where you need to be, when you need to be there.
  • Trains are available to get you from village to village along the Black Sea coast, but be prepared for delays.
  • Though slow, the trains can be comfortable. For a longer trip, try a sleeper car and travel in true comfort along the coast.
