I tend not to like organized tours, so this was perfect. You show up, pay 40 leva, and they drive you to Rila Monastery. Faster and more convenient than public transit, more affordable and flexible than an organized tour. I wanted to use them for Plovdiv, but our schedules didn't align. Would definitely use again.

We left to and from Rila on time. The van was comfortable. There was no guide, but that's OK. Booking was fast and comfortable. I'm happy with the service.

The shuttle was on time, the driver was very safe and the timing was plenty to be able to explore the sights.

Beautiful place, but basic trip with little bus not very comfortable and driver who speaks only Bulgarian. On arrival, however, we were received by another employee who explained the rules of the trip, the places we visited and the arrival and departure times. Nn line with the amount paid.

It was an excellent experience to see the Boyana church and Rila monastery. The bys was comfortable, on time and the whole trip well organised. It was the cheaper option to visit these places compared to other agencies. However, a tour guide is not included and I wish we had more than two hours to explore Rila monastery.
