If you are only in Sofia for a few days and want to visit both Rila Monastery (a stunning, must-visit site) and Plovdiv (interesting city with lots to see and a fascinating history), this trip really helps you to make best use of your time. Philip was excellent, providing regular updates via WhatsApp throughout the day — both practical info (meeting locations & timings) and short summaries of what he was telling us about the places we were visiting (history, context and other interesting info), which was great to have for reference. It's a long day but the trip was very well organised and it is clear that a lot of thought has gone into making sure that the experience is enjoyable and convenient for all participants.

Great trip to Rila Monastery and to Plovdiv. We arrived at the Monastery early so we basically had it to ourselves, no other tourists. Our guide Philip was very friendly and always open for questions and suggestions. He also provided us additional information during the drive on WhatsApp. 1 hour at the monastery and over 4 hours in Plovdiv proved sufficient time for detailed sightseeing. Only thing that could be improved was the size of the bus. You spend a lot of hours sitting and the seat was rather small and cramped, specifically, not enough leg room for taller people.

Everything was great, I recommend this excursion without hesitation. Our guide Philip was very nice, he told us very well what to do and where to go and he was attentive to the group at all times.

The tour guide was laking information regarding the places. Clised for renovation

A comfortable option to combine two places that are worth visiting.
