Useless tour

So this is one of the most useless tours i have ever seen in my life. Maybe they guided version is better as people write in the reviews, def not the self-guided. First of all self guided should be somebody dropping you in a place and then you go around yourself. But here i just received a word file and nothing else. And even if the concept has a different meaning, the transport advice they provided, you can easily find online - i received it in a free walking tour guide of sofia- and a wikipedia description of the place. A 30 euro worth of word file. No map print screens no bus timetables no lift operating hours.. nothing.. the lift was not operational that day and they didnt mention it and my trip was totally damaged of course. And last but not least even that word file was not accessable by 11am same day already , they resent a link and still wasnt working! Totally not recommended

Hello Hend, The self-guided tour is very clear of what it includes and what it does not include. What you think a self-guided tour should be is your personal opinion and not relative here. The tour is not what you think but what's written.In this sense everybody in the world thinks differently, right? And you buy a product. It's very easy to contact the support and to be helped in the needed way. The main problem is that you think and expect without reading. You expect pick up, transportation in this option and you clearly see on your voucher that this is NOT included in your option. When you wrote that you cannot open the file you were supplied with a new link immediately. We regard such writing very seriously and we already reported your 2 reviews which you wrote from 2 different profiles to the platform which as you know is totally unacceptable for you as a traveler. Do not worry - the travelers who read and understand the self-guided tour continue booking it and implementing it fully. Regards, Hristo

Great tour, I'd recommend it...

Great tour, I'd recommend it. Hristo emailed promptly to confirm arrangements for collection from hotel, and Tony, the tour guide, arrived early. Following a supermarket stop to purchase necessary snacks and water, and a drive of around 45 mins, we the reached parking spot and set of on a good hike of 2.5 hrs to the top of the mountain. Following a rest at the top of an hour, it was a little cooler up there, but mainly only due to the breeze, we headed down. Tony was very pleasant, making conversation and explaining things, he was also very flexible in shifting the downward trek so we could descend by the chair lift, and then drive back to the monastery to see that. So, in all, it was a great day, and very well organised, only downsides for me were: 1 mountains were busier than I would have liked, I'd hoped it would be more of a rural wilderness, and 2 monastery was a little bit of a disappointment for me, as there simply wasn't much there.
