Very, very cool! The driver handed out maps with routes on which it is best to inspect the lakes, told how to get to the panoramic point from which all seven lakes can be seen. He handed out raincoats (which, by the way, helped us a lot, as it started to rain in the afternoon). Also, during a trip to Sofia, I told some information about her. Drove us to the elevator, dropped us off and picked us up at 17:00 at the same place. I advise everyone to take this particular tour, because this is a great opportunity to see the lakes at your own pace without any guides.
Blessed with the weather, the scenery was beautiful and it was a very good trip. There was plenty of time, and there was plenty of time on the mountain. I thought it was okay to climb up with a one-way lift and walk down. I had that much time to spare.
Our guide Theodor was super nice and a great driver ; the hike was beautiful, the views are amazing, especially at that time of year, 2 of the lakes were still frozen, it really is worth it, GO !
Great, my recommendation: do not choose a tour with the monastery, you will have to take a shorter track in the mountains. A longer track is so much more beautiful and well worth it!
The guide was really knowledgeable about Bulgaria and the lakes and the monastery were amazing!
