Some comments about our tours - 22.12.2016
As the 2016 year is almost over, the “Adventure Trails” team is happy to say goodbye to a successful season. Here are some of the comments on our summer hiking tours:
Just came back from the Rila and Pirin Mountains Trek, had an excellent experience and Adventure Peaks were incredibly helpful and friendly during the entire process. I will be using Adventure Peaks again!
I have just returned from your Bulgaria Rila & Pirin trip, and thought you might welcome a bit of feedback. It was excellent, and exceeded my expectations in every way. The whole trip in Bulgaria was well planned and organised, and our guide (Stoyan) was really first class: knowledgeable, patient, reliable and a thoroughly nice guy. The driver (“Jimmy”) was also very reliable and a fun personality. When we got back to Sofia at the end of the trip, they took us on a fascinating tour of the city, which wasn’t even on the itinerary (but ought to be!).
The scenery on the trip was really beautiful, and also pristine: no litter, no eroded paths; and although some areas were busy (it was a holiday weekend in Bulgaria when we were there), there were also places where we walked miles without seeing anyone else. The places we stayed were characterful and genuinely local rather than being impersonal hotels. The food was fresh, plentiful and of excellent quality. There was also a good insight into the history, culture and lifestyles of the area.
We both thought it was a great holiday in a beautiful and fascinating country. The walk on the central Pirin ridge was one of the best ridge walks that I have done. The only thing that I would add is that as a vegetarian I was a bit worried before the trip that vegetarian food would be limited. In fact it was excellent in all the hotels (and indeed the hut) and I was really well catered for.
