Really varied and stunning tour visiting the wonderful bridges (much more spectacular than on the pictures), Bachkova monastery (which was stunning) and the Assens fortress in the beautiful Rhodope mountains. Our guide Christina was friendly and knowledgable and any of these places would be worth a visit on their own so doing 3 in a row was great.

The trip was wonderful. I had a careful and competent guide. The duration of the trip is above the estimated one, ie the trip lasts 8-9 hours. This is because of bad roads. Everything I saw was very beautiful. The trip deserves to be done

This trip was amazing. It was nice to get out from the town into the mountains. So beautiful and peaceful. What really made this trip special was our excellent guide, Stoyan. You could not have asked for a more friendlier guy with a wealth of knowledge. He took his time with us, never at any time did we feel rushed. I would definitely recommend this trip and hope you are lucky enough to get Stoyan as your guide. One piece of advice, There is a far amount of walking on uneven paths with steps and loose rocks, could be slippery, so be warned.
