    4.0 - Good

    The weather was dismal, we could not do most of the walks planned. There was no plan B or ability to reverse the order of the trip with the weather. All in all I will remember the rain and the road journey more than anything else. Plovdiv is not really... Read more

    Traventuria commented on this review
    Dear Carole, Thank you very much for your feedback. Unfortunately yours, and also several of our other hiking groups at the same time, have been badly affected by the Nefeli cyclone, which have been flooding Greece and Bulgaria in the past 10 days or so. Unseen amounts of rain (up to 200 litres per square meter), and even snow in some parts of the area, have made this week a nightmare for everybody booked on outdoor activities in the region. Changing accommodations every day (as per program) doesn’t leave options for plan B as you still need to make it somehow to the next overnight place. And on a hiking tour everybody expects to walk outside and not to be entertained indoors. Changing the direction of the tour is not logistically adequate either, and definitely wouldn’t help when the whole country is affected by the storm ant not just certain parts of it. Yes, the program is intensive, but the itinerary has been optimized through the years to give you maximum impressions on Bulgarian culture and nature, and is easily performed when the weather is normal. I really wish you had experienced completely different (normal actually) weather conditions, but this is beyond our control. We have more dedicated hiking tours, which concentrate less on culture and travelling among different sites, and consists of full hiking days only. You may consider one of these in case you decide to visit again. We hope to see you again in Bulgaria! Best regards, Ivailo Nikolov

    When booking the tour I didn't know anything about Bulgaria. This seemed to be a good opportunity to combine hiking in different mountains and sightseeing at the same time. And this worked out just perfect! The whole itinerary is very well thought. The... Read more
