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!
Mega cool experience - the lakes were really amazing, the monastery was not so cool. And very long drive from the lakes to the monastery where one was tired. But the lakes alone were worth it all.
Kind tourguide, well-organized trip, time schedule was hold perfectly. The 7 lakes are amazing, Rila monostery is nice, we had a good day and good experience with nice memories.
The tips are really useful. The staff including the driver are lovely. I recommand it !
