How many people are in a group?
We want to make sure that our cultural tours and photography classes bring high value to our guests. That is why we limit our groups to no more than 10 photography enthusiasts.
How many days is the tour?
Tours start on Monday. We expect our guests to arrive sometime on the Sunday before the tour starting day.
You will be accommodated in a hotel in Sofia. Your stay is covered. We will meet you at the airport and transport you to the hotel, so you don’t have to worry about any of this. The cultural tour and private photography classes start on Monday morning. Our first trip is to visit Vitosha Mountain.
The group is going to be back in Sofia on the Sunday same week around noon.
What if I arrive very early on Sunday or even the day before?
We got you covered! Just make sure to notify us ahead of time about your arrival details, so we can make the arrangements.
If you arrive early on Sunday we will organize a tour in Sofia for guests who feel like they want to go around the city. You are welcome to take your camera with you. The photowalk on Sunday is free for our guests.
Of course, if you prefer you can decide to rest and stay in the hotel instead. Communicating with us your time of arrival is critical, to ensure your good experience.
If you arrive before Sunday we can assist you to find a good hotel to stay. Just make sure you contact us and tell us your plans.
Please note that we cover hotels stays starting Sunday evening.
What if I arrive very late on Sunday or even Monday morning?
No worries! We are here to help you with your stay. Make sure you notify us about your travel plans, so we can make the necessary arrangements.
Preferably you should give yourself enough time for travel and take some rest before we start the cultural tour and photography classes. Our schedule is packed with activities and places to visit, you don’t want to miss any of it.
What is included in the package?
We cover all your needs while in Bulgaria, so you can focus and dedicate to learning photography. This includes food, hotels, transportation, workshops and your photography mentor.
Covered hotel stays include the Sunday evening before the actual tour starts and covers all stays until next Sunday morning when the tour ends.
All of our guests are going to be insured for the duration of the cultural travel in Bulgaria so you have a piece of mind and immerse yourself in photography.
Who is going to accompany the group?
Each of our groups includes a host, fluent in English. This is your primary contact person who will help address any needs you might have during your culture tour. This person will be managing the travel, organizing transportation, hotels, make sure your food is fresh and on time.
The second most important person is the professional photographer. This is the person you will spend the most time of the day with. You should feel comfortable asking questions. Your most important task is to learn photography and improve your skills as a photographer.
In addition to the host and the professional photographer, each group includes a nurse who will be 24/7 with the group.
Let’s not forget our drivers. Depending on the group size and number of vehicles each group will include one or more drivers.
