      Great week at the Bulgarian mountains
      We are a group of friends who were guided by Kiril in Bulgaria’s mountains (Rila, Pirin, Rodophy). The selection of the trails was excellent, confident guidance, a lot of knowledge, very god personal communication with the group members.

      Getting to know Bulgaria's Nature better via Azimut Tours
      We were hiking, as a group, 18 people with Azimut hours , led by kiril , for 7 full hiking days covering ( as much as possible) the Rila, Pirin and Rodopi mountains. The plan was great, diversed and each day was somehow different from the other. All the technicalities were perfectly taken care of and unexpected events ( Such as a lift chair not operational) led to an other great alternative. In addition to discovering the mountains, some snow, and Bulgaria's nature in general, we were nicely exposed to Bulgaria's culture by Kiril's explanations and by meeting local people at several pre-arranged events. Azimut Tours is surely the travel agency you may want to work with, to get the most of Bulgaria's treasures 🤗

      Young Traveling Tailored Week in Mountains and Villages
      We tailored a full week tour, together with the Azimut company, and we had Velko as our guide for the whole week. Velko is highly professional with respect to guiding, timekeeping, informing, safeguarding, but his most appreciated quality was his humor and his humanity. The entire group enjoyed his unique content and his warm companionship. Highly recommended.

      Incredible Azimut Tours
      Kiril Kostov and Azimut Tours prepared a five-day school trip for us, combining alpine hiking in the Pirin National Park, discovering the ancient and Christian past of picturesque Bulgaria, local wine and design business, rafting, or hot spring baths. Perfect communication and service with soul! Azimut has a philosophy of supporting local quality and has so much to offer! On behalf of our class of 36 17-year-old students and 3 teachers of the European School Brussels III, I can recommend this group of excellent people as guides. All our expectations have been exceeded, thank you and we look forward to the next trip with your organization! Thanks to!! Pet

      STRONGLY RECOMMENDED
      We went on a school trip to Bulgaria with Azimut Tours led by Kiril and the others and thoroughly enjoyed it! I would strongly recommend Azimut Tours to anyone who wants to have a great time. We spent five days together during which we did a plethora of activities ranging from hiking the Pirin mountains to rafting in Kresna Gorge. Kiril put a lot of work into the preparation itself and was more than willing to share all the information with us and make changes whenever necessary. He communicated all his ideas clearly and met with us online when we asked for it. Kiril was also more than willing to modify the programme based on our needs. It became clear very early that he is passionate and enthusiastic about his job and wants to do what is best for his clients. He provided everything necessary (bus from/to the airport, other transportation, accommodation, local tour guides etc.) and proved to be a valuable and experienced tour guide who will ensure that his clients will have a great time. Kiril is extremely knowledgeable as well and shared a lot of interesting personal stories with us. His team was also extremely patient and waited for us without any complaints. In conclusion, I would strongly recommend Azimut Tours as I have personally never met or worked with anyone as passionate and client-oriented as Kiril and his team. I am looking forward to our future cooperation.

      Up to 2500 meters on Pirin Mountains
      Kiril is a passionate person and great expert on the mountains. Communication was easy going both ibefore and during the excursion. Kiril also proved to be very attentive to the needs of my son who was limited by a small injury. Very nice experience up to 2500 meters, can't wait to return to the fantastic Pirin Mountains

      Hit springs tour with an amazing knowledgeable guide and helpful personal service
      Our guide Georgi was brilliant from the pre pick up information, the local knowledge along the journey, the personal escort into the spa and even gifts on the way back. The spa was excellent too. Clean, quiet and friendly. The food in the snack bar was good too.

      Perfect
      Kiril planned for us the track in Greece. He was responsible as much that he did a pre track before. Just to check all the trails, hotels and people. We are gluten free. He made sure we had food during the trip. He planned the trip together with us. We changed it few times according to the kids abilities. Kiril is an incredible person. This is my fourth trip with Kiril. Other trips were dangerous. I trust the guy with my life

    Amazing trip with George ! Can’t say enough about the tour - it made our holiday. Adventure - nature - knowledge - George is a wonder guide and a beautiful soul - he really showed us the real Bulgaria. It was all amazing - we can’t put a highlight as honestly it was as good as it gets. The perfect trip if your visit Sofia. If you do the eyes of god ask to see Saint marina chapel and hike to the cave. 10/10. The black monk Nectari is incredible at the monastery. Such an honour to visit this man in his monastery

    We had an amazing day! The attractions we visited were really interesting and the way everything was presented from our guide Kiril was absolutely stunning! We could not have wished for a better tour, a better guide and a better day! We were adapting the agenda towards what was interesting for us and we saw and experienced so much more than we were even wishing for! We did some tours during this trip also with other tour operators which were also great, however this one was THE ONE! Thank you so much for taking such good care of us and we will definently come back for more!

    Kiril was very friendly and professional. As a solo female traveller, I felt very safe and thoroughly enjoyed my day. Appreciated that I was given options and allowed me to enjoy the tour at my pace. The caves and monastery is a must see when you’re visiting Bulgaria!

    To further add, the next day, my trip from a different company was cancelled without prior notice. I rang Kiril whom when out of his way to organise another tour(Rila Lakes and Spa) and guide for me for that day last minute! Deeply appreciative he went that extra mile for me and had another amazing day organised by Azimut Tours. Thank you!

    It was a perfect trip within a day, first exploring the unique karst area of Prohodna Cave, or "The Eyes Of God" nature wonder and the nearby St.Marina rock monastery well hidden by the Iskar gorge. After that we emerged in the beautiful Saeva Dupka Cave and last but not least we visited the wonderful Glozhene monastery.
