Here is a rough guide to your holiday based on a 5 days guided riding tour with 7 nights accommodation.
The riding starts the day after you arrive.
Average Kilometres = 100+
Average days ride 10 am till 6 pm (but your group can choose early start or late finish)
Arrival day we get you checked into the hotel and give you your bike for the weekend to cherish, set up the suspension for you. Later in the evening you will meet the guides, have a short safety meeting where you can ask any questions, have something to eat and a pint or 2. We can arrange a BBQ, Hog Roast etc numbers depending (small extra charge may apply). Don't drink too much as you have the 1st days epic trail riding coming.
Rides start at 10 am usually, although you can start earlier or later as your group chooses. We take you on some of our lower routes to get you acclimatised to the terrain and conditions.
You will have a packed lunch but if you see a cafe or would like to stop somewhere just ask your guide.
We ride higher and further, deeper into the forests and higher passes.
Usually we take it easy on this day and take a stunning ride over to Lake Iskar to ride along the beach, have lunch, a play day. It's your holiday, you decide.
The last riding day. Do you want hill climbs? off piste riding, a place to get your favourite holiday photo? River crossings or just take me riding, we take you.
A last evening meal is arranged at the hotel or we can arrange a visit to one of many Restaurants etc in the village. ( extra charge may apply)
After another hearty breakfast your airport transfer will be awaiting you.
You hopefully have just experienced the best motorcycle holiday you ever dreamed of, with so many stories to tell. Superlatives a plenty.

The national currency of Bulgaria is the Bulgarian Lev (BGN), with an exchange rate of approximately 2.26 to the GBP (April 2018).
There are no banks or ATMs once you enter the mountains. There are ATM's and Banks in Samokov and Borovets and some major petrol stations. The Yanakiev Hotel that we use also has an ATM. There is a couple in the arrivals hall at Sofia Airport, but please note that the bank located within the arrivals hall is typically closed at the weekends, so if you plan to exchange cash please make sure you obtain Bulgarian Lev in your home country.
If ordering your Bulgarian currency, it is advisable to request the smaller denomination notes possible. Shops and restaurant in Bulgaria rarely have much in the way of small change and often refuse to accept larger denomination notes

For your information!!
If travelling on a motorcycle holiday and you do not have a bike licence you MUST check and see if you are covered for your holiday in the event of an accident..
I have rung around many many insurance providers, none of whom I spoke to offer cover for people without a bike licence!!
Please read the information below, as it is the closest I have found to offer any sort of cover.
Please make sure if you are travelling with any company and this applies to you, call your holiday insurance provider and make sure you are covered!!
Navigator Travel Insurance Services Ltd
Our Motorcycle Silver or Motorcycle Gold policies will cover off-road leisure motorcycling as standard, and they will cover competitive riding, such as Motocross, at a supplement.
The wording on the policy document states that any insured must hold "appropriate qualifications" to be riding a similar sized machine in the UK or the Channel Islands. Many policies require the rider to hold an "appropriate licence" but these off-roading policies acknowledge that no licence is required to ride off-road in the UK.
In the event of a claim for an accident, the insurer would be looking for evidence that an unlicensed insured has experience in riding a similar sized bike in the UK. The evidence can take many forms and though it would be easier if it was documentary evidence, such as race card or race licence etc, if they are able to show their experience convincingly by other means, such as a website or Facebook page, photographs etc, that should suffice, as long as it shows that they have some experience.
A licensed rider would not need to supply any such evidence, as the fact that they are licensed to ride a bike of the same cc in the UK would be sufficient.
