Guided Bicycle Tours in Bulgaria

      Does anybody need a guided bicycle tour in Bulgaria???, if yes, I - Boris Bob and my daughter Maya can be your very experienced bicycle tour guide.

      I and Maya are  experienced bicyclists. I  have been touring in Bulgaria by my bicycle more than 40 years, and the last 19 years  we have been guiding bicyclist groups from USA, GB, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Israel, South Africa.


      I can always be asked additional questions please do not hesitate to ask me, my available E-mail is:

I also am a fan of FB :)

       I was born at September, 26, 1956 in Pernik town 20 miles southwest of Sofia.  After completing secondary school in my native town, I was 2 years in the Bulgarian Army, where I learned survival skills.  I returned to school to study engineering, and ultimately received a doctorate degree in engineering in the field of machine dynamics from the University of Sofia.  I have 2 children my son, Stoyan (1980), and my daughter, Maya (1985).






      Maya is an IT specialist, in the moment she is dealing with her little baby - Rumy (October, 16, 2016) ... we hope that very soon Rumy will be with us when we tour or guide our groups.

     The bicycle tours we guide in Bulgaria:

         - We greet our bicyclist guests at the Sofia airport (regardless of the time of arrival);

        - We plan your tour details, establishing where and how you would prefer to travel.  This determines if you will self-support, primitive camp, or use van support and hotel and bed & breakfast.  We may choose how many days of cycling, your ideas for the terrain and mileage, consider the weather,  and all the types of things you prefer. This itinerary is tentative, and can be changed as we travel as you wish; 

         - Restaurants: a dinner/lunch in a nice restaurant is approx. 10 - 15 EURO/ person;

        - Hotels and Bed & Breakfast Inns are available, the usual price of a nice room for person/night is 15 - 25 EURO (summer 2019);

        - free wi fi is available everywhere;

        - Our guide fees are quite modest;

        - bike tours are possible between 1st April and 30th September;

        -  you will define how many days will be the tour and dates of the tour;

        - everyone must have own equipment (bike, little tent, sleeping bag and neoprene rag);

         - if there are problems with bike transportation I will assure bikes (mountain type - 18 speeds);

          - van (car) supporting - possible under additional agreement;

        - Because summer months are very busy for us, arranging the tour by the end of February is highly recommended. If available, a tour can be arranged at the last moment.

        - Renting of bikes, booking of hotels and arranging transport from the airport to the hotel and back is all possible for us to do for our guests.

       - AN OFFER FOR A COUPLE OF BICYCLISTS: A car + fuel + car driver (me) + 2 bicycles - 80 EURO/day.

      - For bicyclists who need not guiding please do not hesitate to consult with us about everything connected with bicycling, in Bulgaria (please only have in mind that summer time often we are touring and away from the computer for a week or 2 two);

      So, it is not a problem for me to design a tour for your group. I will tailor your experience to your interests. Simply tell me what are you expecting to do, see, and/or experience in Bulgaria. When I receive your request, I will structure a tour for you.  If I see that I will be not able to satisfy your wishes, I will give you links where you will find other guides who may be able to assist you.

      I have noticed that bicyclists avoid pedaling in Bulgaria in the months of July and August, thinking it is too hot ... for them I have very nice route in the Rodopi Mountains (8 - 12 days), where temperatures in the hottest summer days are not above 26 deg C.

It is time to plan your bike tours for the summer '19 !!!

      I realize that Bulgaria is almost unknown destination for bicyclists, so in the next table I post names and E mails of the bicyclists toured with us in the years. If you follow the links (names of the bicyclists) you will see many pictures and stories of our tours.

      The items pointed with the red asterisk * includes fanny stories by the participants in the tours.
