Holiday Testimonials 2012

'We have been back from our holiday in Bulgaria for about 4 weeks now but our memories are still very vibrant from the wonderful experiences we had through your travel company. In truth we had no firm ideas in terms of expectations as none of us had been with you before and none of us had visited Bulgaria on any previous occasion. So, it all came as a wonderful series of surprises and I think I can say for all of us it far exceeded our expectations. You could not have given us a better guide than Michaela - she was caring, thoughtful, flexible & tremendously knowledgeable about the flora, fauna and the whole region generally. The accommodation was a delight - very comfortable with friendly local staff. I'm not sure what we were expecting but we were more than pleased with what we found. So, thank you again for putting this package together for us and allowing us to have such positive experiences. We shall have no hesitation in recommending Balkan Trek to other potential travellers to Bulgaria.'

'The highlights of this tour were the alpine meadows, flowers, butterflies and birds, and a knowledgeable guide to help us identify them. Wonderful scenery that was remote and unspoilt.'
