Ce vei face

This is usually a small group tour. The meeting point for it is behind Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, next to Cafe La Catehdrale at 8;45am. The minivan is new and comfortable, most times with free wi fi. The departure is at 9am. The monastery is situated in the beautiful Rila mountain. The traveling time to it is about two hours. The monastery is UNESCO heritage site and it is the biggest monastery complex in Bulgaria. There you will have about 1-hour guided tour with which you will learn about the history and the legends related to the monastery. If you are interested, we can visit its museum as well. Then you will have some free time to check the shops and take some photos. After that, we will stop at one great local restourant for a lunch break (the lunch is not included in the price). At 3pm we will depart to Sofia and on the way back we will stop at the Boyana Church- another UNESCO heritage site, situated in the footsteps of the Vitosha Mountain. It is famous for its frescoes which are about 800 years old and painted in unique style. Once again, I will tell you about their history and what they represent. The visit in the church is about 20 minutes. The return in the center of Sofia is at about 5;30 pm.

I am a tour guide and already for 5 years I have been working in our travel agency called City Tour. History is my hobby and I am very passionate when I present it to foreign tourists. My hometown is Plovdiv so I am very familiar with it as well as with the other most popular destinations such as Sofia, Rila Monastery and Koprivshtitsa. Bulgaria as a whole has a lot of great places and sites to offer and I am more than happy to present them to my guests.

The Rila Lakes Monastery is a gem not to be missed. The tour was intended to include a side trip to the Boyana Church, but last-minute COVID protocols made the trip to Boyana impossible. I asked my tour guide, Vasil, if we could adjust and visit the Cave of St Ivan instead, and he was happy to arrange it. He also sent a message the night before the tour reminding me of the expiration of daylight savings time, and to set my clock back….or I would have been at the meeting point an hour early. Excellent customer service! Both sites were fascinating, and having Vasil, a student of history, along to answer questions and give background was invaluable. He also patiently answered all my questions on the 2 hour drive to and from. A great way to spend a day while in Sofia!

A beautiful drive up into the hills to see the Monastery. The Monastery itself was so worth the visit. Vasil provided an interesting, engaging commentary with lots of information. This was a fun, easy day. Great lunch and conversation. Highly recommended.

Amazing experience! Rila monastery is a must when visiting Bulgaria. Our host Ceco did an amazing job explaining the history behind. The ride there and back was fast and smooth, the van is comfortable. We had a small group of people from all over the world, and it made the whole experience even more special!!! Thank you so much for unforgettable experience and lifetime memories!
