The lakes are absolutely beautiful. There are some tricky spots, especially when the ground is wet, but if you're of relatively good health, 5 hours to tour the place is enough. I enjoyed that it was a go at your own pace event because I am rather slow at hiking and I often feel pressure to move at other people's pace. But this was great because you could decide where you wanted to go and how long to get there as long as you met back at the meeting point at the correct time. If you like nature and hiking, this is a must do.
I really enjoyed the whole trip to 7 Rila Lakes and Rila Montasery. The Lakes are breathtaking and you can just walk on easy routes but also you can climb the highest top and see the amazing view of all 7 lakes. Montasery is also very beautiful but unfortunately we arrived when the museum of montasery was closed (after 4:30 pm). All in all i definitely recommend this activity!
Wonderful day trip to Plovdiv, well worth it. Our guide, Lubo, was fantastic - really friendly guy and very knowledgeable. The city itself is really nice and has a great vibe about it, it was only a shame that we couldn't stay for longer!
The caves are all unique and very interesting. If you enjoy nature, then this is a must see. I especially enjoyed the "Eyes of God" under the starry sky. Additionally, the tour guide was very kind and knowledgeable.
Beautiful experience, recommended! Attention to clothing, which must be suitable.
