Holiday Testimonials 2011

'Thanks again for a great week. I don't believe the orchids could have been better!'


'I enjoyed it very much. The Rodopi are spectacular because they are so unspoilt. I hope they stay that way.'


'Wildflowers, especially the orchids, and butterflies were fantastic.'


'It was great to see the farming and way of life in the remote villages. The meadows were fantastic - beautiful wildflowers. It was one of the very best trips I have done. I will recommend it to others.'


'Variety of the walks was pleasing. The flower meadows and some of the rare woodland species were exceptional; also enjoyed seeing bats at close quarters.'


'The tour leader was excellent; good English, excellent local knowledge, friendly, considerate, helpful.'


'There was something unique about each walk. We saw ghost orchids, buzzards and lots of butterflies. On our last night we watched some Bulgarian folk dancing and singing and joined in with some local ladies.'


'All the walks were fabulous with great views. I particularly enjoyed the meadows. It was lovely to be in an area that is unspoilt by mass tourism.'


'The tour leader is excellent, knowledgeable, calm and professional. She shared her love of the Rodopi region with us…The food was also excellent - great to try so many regional dishes.'


'All walks were good and got better as the week went on. The pacing was well thought out with good choice of lunch stops.'


'Svetla was knowledgeable about the area, calm and paced the walks well.'


'I had no idea the Rodopi Mountains were so beautiful.'


'This trip was a fantastic journey where wonderful, sometimes strenuous walks went hand in hand with sufficient information about the land, people, history, culture, flora and fauna. A beautiful, rich experience in a pleasant, not too large group, accompanied by a friendly, attentive and excellent English speaking guide and experienced driver.'


'We got to know the real Balkan culture, back in time with very cosy hotels and great food.'


'Thank you, we had a wonderfully nice time in Bulgaria.'


'A relaxed short trip which made us will feel to have been away longer. Good alternation between walking and culture. Accommodation was mostly in small villages where time has stopped and the locals themselves get around with horse and wagon or on rickety bicycles. The small hotels were nice and the food was surprisingly tasty.'


'I did not know before this trip that Bulgaria is so interesting and beautiful. I hope to come back.'


'Vladimir was interested, knowledgeable and informed. He shared information easily and ensured the groups needs were met. The trip met and exceeded expectations - very enjoyable.'


'I thought Vladimir was an exceptionally good leader. His knowledge of the area was extensive; very easy to get on with and his leadership skills superb.'


'A first class leader who was very informative, spoke excellent English, warned us of any potential dangers on the routes. He was a good naturalist, mountain leader, well aware of pro-green issues. Vladimir was well versed in the long history of Bulgaria and was also a fount of knowledge about the legends and cultural history of the areas we visited.'


'Vladimir's knowledge of the walks, mountains and lakes was exceptional.'


'The tour leader was very approachable, friendly and made me feel comfortable in his ability to care for the group.'
