Well organised with professional and friendly staff, all in all a great trip with amazing scenery.

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Reaching the sumit of Mt Vihren.

What did you think of your group leader?

Very professional, helpful, friendly - all round he was excellent.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Depending on the room you get at the hotel in Bansko you might need ear plugs. Most people didn't seem to have this but we were at the back of the hotel and there were dogs barking pretty much all night. Thank goodness I packed mine so it wasn't a problem.

One or two of the walks are either long or quite hard so make sure you are fit enough to enjoy them.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

This was a really good trip, the walking was excellent with some challenging bits but that made it all the more satisfiying to do. I would definetly recommend this trip. The scenery was wonderful and the guide very knowledgeable. The Bulgarians were very friendly especially at the hotel in the Rila area. This was the best hotel with some really good traditional home cooking. The hosts there were really friendly and there is a pool, so you might want to take your costume.

Also after the longest walk the driver of the bus arrived to pick us up with cold beers! I have never enjoyed a beer so much. I would also like to add that both the guide and the driver were great - very friendly and helpful.

 All in all a great trip - do it!
