    Javi y Maria Jose. Valencia. España.
    A pesar de que ya conocíamos la parte sur de Bulgaria (Ródopes, Rila y Pirin) que considerábamos que era lo más espectacular, este viaje a los Balcanes Centrales con Mitko y Moni ha sido increíble. Hemos disfrutado como nunca de la montaña y de su compañía. Mitko es un excelente guía y mejor persona y en un par de días conoce al grupo y su idiosincrasia. Ama la naturaleza como nadie y eso se nota. Han sido rutas muy elaboradas y se salen de los viajes estándar. Paisajes salvajes y muy poco transitados y con un sabor a aventura difícil de superar. Por otra parte con el otro guía (Moni) hemos encontrado el complemento ideal para las rutas montañeras. Es un gran amante de la naturaleza y en especial de las aves. Son muy profesionales y muy concienzudos en su trabajo. Si de verdad te gusta la montaña, no te importa cansarte y quieres disfrutar de grandes montañas y paisajes este es un viaje para recordar. Recuerdos para nuestro chófer Oleg y su excelente rakiya. Este año parece que le ha salido un poco floja…. Un abrazo amigos.

  2. We just finished an incredible 5 day village to village hike in the Rhodopes mountains with Dimiter Samounev as our guide. He was fantastic planning the entire 5 day trip to accommodate our family with 3 young kids 8-12. He answered all our pre trip questions and met us on time to start the adventure.

    Dimiter was great with the kids as he pointed out bear and other animal footprints along the way. He also cut tree branches to make walking sticks and let the kids borrow his pocket knife over and over and answered a thousand “how much longer?” questions. He showed us wild berries that we picked and ate along the way and shared lots of history and stories. We all learned a lot about Bulgaria and the mountains during the trek.

    The scenery and wildflowers are beautiful. We went in July and the weather was unusually cool with periods of rain and thunderstorms. That turned out to be a good thing as we avoided hiking in the heat. Dimiter had selected guest houses and hotels with the family in mind and only stayed in places and rooms he knew were clean and well run.

    Since returning home, we’ve been encouraging our friends to visit the area with Dimiter. We can’t recommend highly enough.

  3. Just had a wonderful time exploring the Vitosha mountain with Mitko.
    He picked me up 8am sharp at my hotel and we were already putting on our snowshoes an hour later in Aleko(1800m) after driving through forested slopes.
    We hiked around the area and slowly made the way up to Cherni Vrah, Vitosha’s highest peak at 2290m. The weather was perfect for late March: Blue sky, windless and quite warm. Beautiful. Great experience with a great guide.
    Highly recommended.
