Great tour, I'd recommend it...
Alan G
, Jul 2017
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.
