Our guide Todor was so knowledgeable about the area. He was very nice and friendly to accommodate our needs quite well. We although requested some out-of-schedule request like viewing the boarder town in Serbia, asking for extra photo stops, etc. I find him a legend as he speaks 4 languages ! He took a good care of us throughout the day

A really excellent day. I was the only traveller and so it was effectively a private tour. My guide - Todor Nedkov - spoke perfect English, was extremely knowledgeable in all matters, patiently answered my constant questions and was very flexible in adjusting the schedule to meet my needs. The trip commences with a short visit to Boyana Church on the edge of Sofia all trips to Boyana are of necessity short, but worth seeing. It is then off to Serbia, a couple of hours away. Whilst the two countries partly merge into one another - the borders and populations having changed over the centuries - it is also apparent that you are somewhere 'different'. The countryside is mountainous and beautiful and would be a delight for hikers. The monastery is in a peaceful, delightful location, with superb frescoes. A variety of souvenirs are available, along with local food and alochol from street vendors Serbia has its own currency, which is difficult to obtain, but everyone was happy to accept Bulgarian leva. We had a late lunch on the return journey, and which was very pleasant. All in all, a very enjoyable experience.

Fortunate to have my own tour guide as I was the only one booked that day. The tour guide Ivan was excellent, relaxed and informative. The monastery and other places we visited were stunning, peaceful and full of history. You get to try some local food and alcohol if you wish and it was just a great day out. Would recommend this tour highly, be aware you may have to wait at the border but usually for not too long. Cannot wait to go back and do this tour and others with my friends

There really wasn't a lot to see in the tour. Our tour guide couldn't find our hotel and called and asked me for directions really, like a tourist would be able to give local directions....after picking us up, she stopped to gas up the car. not impressed with that However, the place she took us for local food in Serbia was amazing. I wouldn't recommend the tour unless a few things were added.
