Hi Nadya,

Thanks for all your help in making our trip enjoyable and a success.

All transport, accommodation & land arrangements worked to perfection. The drivers were great & very helpful. The hotel was very good ( the fully inclusive option worked really well for us), the rooms were great & the hotel food was OK (not the high standard of outside restaurants).

All the golf courses were superb (pity about the wind) lol.

Possibly we planned our trip a bit late but that was my fault. I think we would have had a better time in the evenings if we had booked a little earlier, although I don't think our bodies would agree. We certainly made the best of the bars (drinks were great) & restaurants (food was very good) that were still open & had a great time.

I would certainly recommend you & your company for future tours. In fact I will be contacting you in the near future for quotations for next year's tour. We have a couple of destinations that we would like to check out . Thanks once again for your input & professionalism.

 Hi Nadya

I was planning to write to you.

The trip was excellent thank you and thanks to your good planning and communication with us everything went smoothly. 

Ivan could not have been more helpful and punctual with the transfers and that side of things worked very well.

The Melia Grand Hermitage was a very good hotel for us in a good location; the accommodation and facilities were excellent, the staff could not have been more friendly, the food was very good and varied. The hotel was fairly empty as the season had not really got under way which meant we got great attention from the staff, who had time to stop and chat to us.

All three golf courses were very good but our favourite was Blacksearama: the scenery was great and it was a very fair challenge, with lots of great holes.  Lighthouse was easier, also a lovely walk but not as scenic and Thracian Cliffs was unique, spectacular and great fun but a couple of us nearly ran out of balls so once was enough!

I will of course be recommending Bulgarian Golf Tours.

Best regards

 Hello Nadya,
I would like to thank you for the organisation of my trip in your beautiful country. All my expectations were fulfilled.
My daughter said that she had wonderful vacation, I refeshed my memories in a very positive way :)
Please send my best regards to the hotel reception staff and especially to Dimitrii from Fouquet restaurant who helped me get familiar with Bulgarian fabulous wines.
Kind regards

Hi Nadya,
Thank you for making all the arrangements for our holiday! Everything worked out fine - only the weather was a disappontment but didn't really matter that much :-( Of course, it would have been more enjoyable to play in shorts but the courses were in excellent condition and we enjoyed everything.
So, thank you!
Best regards,

Dear All,

We are safely returned from Bulgaria, where we had a great break.

Our thanks to Nadya for her professional and generous help throughout - she is a real asset to your office and someone whom we shall recommend without hesitation.

Ivan was a first-rate driver and was a pleasure to be driven by. He was helpful, professional and reliable.

Black Sea Rama is a great golfing complex. The course is challenging, the facilities excellent and the staff helpful. The restaurant is good, and the prices very reasonable.

Lighthouse needs money spending on the course. It is well-laid-out, but not maintained to the standard of Black Sea and Thracian Cliffs.

Thracian Cliffs is an extraordinary golf course, spectacular and very challenging. The 7th hole off anything other than the white tees is extremely difficult for golfers of all levels. At the moment, the facilities off the course are poor. There is a pop-up bar and barbecue overlooking the 18th green, but that serves only snacks and is open only from 13.00/18.00 hours.

Hotel Mistral was comfortable, spotlessly clean and with delightful staff, who were always prepared to help.

We shall be pleased to recommend Bulgaria, and especially pleased to recommend your office and staff.

My thanks again - I shall place entries on both Google and Tripadvisor within 7 days.

Regards,

William K, Group of 8, June 2016


Dear All,

Just to say thanks for a great time everyone enjoyed it!

If you can give me prices for next year same time September I guess with flights it will be Wednesday - Wednesday if you book course make sure not to book Thracian cliffs back to back on separate days.
I guess if you can hold for 28 people, If you can get early tee times don't mind!

Best regards 

Saleem, Group of 20, Sept 2016


Hi Nadya,

We loved Balchik and we already talked, that we should come next year again.
But little bit later, like middle of May.

Ari Keinanen, Group of 4, May 2016


Hi Nadya,
Just to let you know that we had a wonderful trip to Bulgaria and all really enjoyed it, many thanks for all your help and the extremely efficient organisation. All the courses were excellent and Thracian Cliffs was incredible, the staff at all the courses were friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. Your drivers were always punctual and enthusiastic, the only slight hiccup was they had the wrong name at the airport, but that was soon resolved.
A few comments which have nothing to do with BGT but might be helpful.
1. The hotel was very well appointed, the rooms were exceptional and the food was generally good. The quality of the wine better than expected for all inclusive. The hotel and resort area, however, is probably better suited to youngsters and families rather than elderly golfers.
2. The airline was not the best, the check in at Gatwick was understaffed and slow and did not know where to send the golf clubs for loading, which caused considerable confusion. On the flight , they ran out of tea and coffee before everyone was served and the stewardesses were less than friendly.
However, none of this spoiled our trip and I would have no hesitation in recommending BGT to others and I am sure we will return again some time in the future. One final thought, we organised an excursion for ourselves on the Thursday, it might make sense for BGT to provide such an option.

Best wishes and thanks again!

 Dear Nadya and Boris,

On behalf of all 8 our tour members I would like to thank you most sincerely for the wonderful golf tour to Bulgaria which you arranged for us. All 8 tour members agreed that it was one of the best golf tours they ever had !
The accommodation, golf arrangements, transfers and the dinner which you arranged at the Del Mundo restaurant were excellent and we had a wonderful meal at the Del Mundo restaurant.
Thank you once again for all the trouble you took in making our tour such a memorable one.

Johann, Group of 8, September 2015


 Good afternoon Nadya,

In a word “Excellent”! Everything went as planned. Ivan was very punctual with the pick-ups/transfers and helped us with his local knowledge of good restaurants. The Hotel Regina Maria was just what we wanted – clean, comfortable, friendly and in a superb location (it was a real bonus that we could go swimming every day in the sea at the front of the hotel). As far as the golf courses are concerned, I think that it was the right thing to play Thracian Cliffs twice and Black Sea/Lighthouse once. Thracian Cliffs really is a bit special. However, if we went again (and I hope we will) we would probably play Black Sea Rama twice since it is a much fairer course (particularly when you are as competitive as us three!). I’m trying to think if there were any negatives but I can’t recall any!

The only slight negative – which had nothing to do with you – was that Richard’s clubs failed to arrive on time. As you know he tried to have them couriered out from UK (at quite some cost). In the event, they arrived in Balchik on the morning of our departure – which caused great hilarity with both us and the hotel staff! Still, at least he had them for Pirin – albeit he played atrociously with them anyway!!!

Pirin was also good though we ended up going out early on the Saturday and starting on the back 9 and then following the tournament around on the front nine. It wasn’t a problem though, especially as the weather was good with no wind for a change.

A couple of small, random observations:

a. For us, the 1hr 30mins pick-up (before tee-time) was perfect. An hour would be too short if you want to settle in and hit some practice balls/putts;
b. The rental clubs at Thracian and Black Sea were good. At Lighthouse they were very average (and they charged more) and the set didn’t include a 4 or 5-iron;
c. The rental clubs at Pirin remain poor (even the supposedly better sets) – they don’t even have a full set of graphite shafts;
d. Is it possible to include/add the cost of pull trolleys (at Pirin) in the basic package price in future? It would make it a little less complicated on arrival.

And that’s it. Unfortunately, I think that was our last outing of the summer. Other commitments certainly rule out the rest of this month and early October. If the summer lingers on, however, I might be in touch in late October.

It just remains to say that, on behalf of everyone here, I would like to thank you for your help in satisfying our golf cravings through the summer, the service has been top-class and the trip to the Black Sea capped off a brilliant summer.

Many thanks. Regards to all.

Stuart, Group of 3, August-September 2015


Dear Nadya

Although there were some minor troubles, we had an amazing time in Bulgaria.
Thanks for all arrangements you have made and also a good driver (Ivan).

We definitely had a great time and we wish to come back to Bulgaria sometime!

I will recommend your company to other Japanese fellows who stay in Egypt.
They may be interested in your service in Bulgaria!

Thanks!

Best Regards

Dear Iva,

In the name of our group and myself I would like to thank you, Christina, Plamena and Boris for the wonderful stay at the Lighthouse. Not only we had a good weather, nice hotel but we could your care of us every moment. Those who were the first time with us (chairman of PGA in Poland as well) are charmed with golf courses, the very good standard of them  and classified Thracian Cliffs as the most beautiful golf course in Europe. Me, the "ambasador of BGGOLFTOURS " am very proud and happy of that and of the fact that your organisation was absolutely perfect.

This will flourish in many more participants next year- I am sure of that 100 percent.

Thank you very much for the bottles of wine . That was extremely kind of you and a lovely, tasty surprise. In fact we drank all the bottles and were in great spirits with  a hangover( a little) the next day.

Once more thank you for all your efforts and care.

Send my wishes to everybody and wish you much success.

Cheers,

Jadwiga, Group of 12, June 2015


 We are safely returned from Bulgaria, where we had a great break.

Our thanks to Nadya for her professional and generous help throughout - she is a real asset to your office and someone whom we shall recommend without hesitation.

Ivan was a first-rate driver and was a pleasure to be driven by. He was helpful, professional and reliable.

Black Sea Rama is a great golfing complex. The course is challenging, the facilities excellent and the staff helpful. The restaurant is good, and the prices very reasonable.

Lighthouse needs money spending on the course. It is well-laid-out, but not maintained to the standard of Black Sea and Thracian Cliffs.

Thracian Cliffs is an extraordinary golf course, spectacular and very challenging. The 7th hole off anything other than the white tees is extremely difficult for golfers of all levels. At the moment, the facilities off the course are poor. There is a pop-up bar and barbecue overlooking the 18th green, but that serves only snacks and is open only from 13.00/18.00 hours. Otherwise, the Club House bar has no atmosphere or view, and is not inviting. Much money has already been spent on this complex - some of it with disastrous results in the shape of collapsing and empty buildings - but much more needs to be spent to create a complex to support the golf course.

Hotel Mistral was comfortable, spotlessly clean and with delightful staff, who were always prepared to help. It is let down only by the quality of the breakfast offered. The fruit juice is diluted to the level of children's orange squash, and the eggs are congealed. There is a poor choice of bread, and the only coffee machine makes only instant coffee. It is truly uninviting, dark and lets the hotel down badly. It is, I am afraid, simply not of a standard that UK guests would expect from a hotel with the other good attributes that the Mistral offers.

We shall be pleased to recommend Bulgaria, and especially pleased to recommend your office and staff.

William, Group of 8, June 2015


Hi Nadya

We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Bulgarian Golf tours for re-arranging our golf day on Wednesday, 20 May - we very much appreciated it. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Thracian Cliffs  and enjoyed playing both Thracian Cliffs and BlackSeaRama courses.  Unfortunately Caroline wasn't able to come - we missed her immensely as it was Caroline and her family who had already played the golf courses and who recommended having our annual golf trip in Varna. We hope to visit again in 2016.

Best wishes

Faye, Group of 3, May 2015


Hello Nadya,

Only 3 words to describe our trip. A-MA-ZING.

Loved every minute of it, Transfers perfect, Thracian Cliffs very accommodating, Golf Course to die for, and last but not least a very big THANK YOU to all at BGT for organising all the changes to our programme at the last minute. You guys couldn't be more helpful.

Already planning our next visit!! (Need to conquer that course at least once in my lifetime!!) No doubt you will hear from me in the future and by the way I am the Chairman of our golf society, Ruby M's Golf Society, so I'll be sending you all my friends contacts who want to come and visit Bulgaria.

Umesh, Group of 9, May 2015


Hi Nadya

Yes thank you very much!

We loved the courses and the organisation was just perfection.

We will probably come again next year and we are recommending it to our members at Bishop's Stortford golf club.

Thank you for all your help

Marcia, Group of 4, May 2015


Good afternoon Nadya,

We had an excellent weekend at Pravets thank you.  On Friday we only managed 15 holes before there was a large thunderstorm but on Saturday and Sunday we had sunny and warm weather throughout our rounds.  Everything at the hotel – accommodation, food, service etc – was up to its usual high standards.  The course is in good condition albeit the rough is very challenging given the large amount of rain that they have had (it has grown quickly and thick!).   Ball attrition was higher than usual!

Stuart, Group of 4, April 2015


Hi Christina,
I’ve just got back to my office, but wish I was still in Balchik.

We all have an excellent time, the hotel was great and the golf courses fantastic.
I understand the weather the week before wasn’t so good, so it seems we had some luck as well.

Many thanks and I hope to return soon.
Regards Chris, Group of 4, April 2015


 Good morning Nadya and Boris,

Just back from our first trip of the season.  Everything was great and even the weather behaved itself (with Saturday being fantastic).  Thank you for the arrangements and thank you especially for the bottle of wine!  I have to say that we drank it on Friday night and  then, on Saturday, I shot my best round at Pravets. So if you could maybe arrange a few more…………

Looking forward to our May trip already and I’ve started the marketing of the Black Sea trip. I’m confident that some of us will go.

Thanks again

Dear Nadya,
 
I would like to thank you and your team for the fantastic 10 days that we have spent in your country and in the Lighthouse hotel.
 
We played golf in beautiful weather and all the people in the hotel were friendly and very helpful.
 
My wife Claudine and myself, we will surely come back and I look forward to get your best offer again to visit you in the first 2 weeks of October 2015.
 
Best regards
Jan

Jan and Claudine, Belgium, Group of 2, October 2014


Hi,

Everything was just perfect! Specially courses and the services. Flight from Finland added with a bus trip was only negative part, surely this is not your fault.

I am 100% sure to visit there again

Mikael Back, Finland, Group of 12, September/October 2014


Hello Boris,

Thanks again and best regards

Cheers

Frank Defren, Germany, Group of 4, June 2014


Hello Boris,

Overall we were really happy with our trip to Bulgaria. I will give a few comments about different aspects:

The villa. We really liked the villa – it was clean, had a really nice location, view and a pool to jump in after the golf or to wake up in the morning. We liked that there was shuttle transfer whenever we ordered them to pick us up or take us back to villa. The breakfast at the clubhouse was very delicious and everybody were satisfied with that. The grill upstairs was really good and we had some good dinners . The wine list needs some improvement and also the availability of the wines already on the list ( some were out of stock, some run out after a few bottles ). 

We enjoyed the hot-tube in the clubhouse.

The golfcourses. I think that all the three courses are nice. T&C was quite difficult if you do not know the course, so we lost a fortune of balls on the first round, but the second round was much better. When we played T&C we did not have any wind at all – I can only imagine how difficult this course can be when the wind is really blowing ( we experienced that on our last round on Blacksearama ). T&C has really fantastic views, good quality course and some challenging holes.

Blacksearama was my second favourite course – a really nice links type championship course that one can play with different strategies.

Lighthouse golf we palyed only once – good golfcourse, with strategically laid bunkers, so one had to calculate the length of the shots very carefully.

One thing we noticed on T&C especially and on Blacksearama golfcourse were the snakes – haven't ever seen so many snakes – I saw every time at least 3 snakes.

The staff was really friendly and the also liked that the bar-cart was driving around so that we could get some snacks and drinks on the course. The englishman marshall on the Blacksearama had good humour and did his work very well.

As we were in Bulgaria before the high season we had the opportunity to find good tee-off times, restaurant tables and enjoyed the half empty clubhouse. But If there will be high season and there are a lot of people then I think it will be not as convenient and cosy – so we liked that it was not overcrowded ( good timing for us )

Bulgarian golf tours – all worked well and we are satisfied with the service you offered. We think that the price level you offered us and what we got for that had good value.

So, these are our comments – almost positive in every aspect.

Thank you for helping us and have a nice high season with a lot of clients.

BR,

Anders Anderson, Sweden, Group of 7, May 2014


Hi Plamena

Sorry that I did not meet you but it was good to meet up with Boris and especially to hear that Turkish Airlines are now going to fly Istanbul to Varna.

Thank you for the efficient way you handled our booking. The transfers were always on time and the driver very helpful.

The golf courses were great especially Thracien Cliffs which we all rated as one of the best we had played. The hotel Graffit was excellent and we were impressed with the restaurants and the cleanliness of the city.

The only problem were the flights to get there . With the new flight from Istanbul this will make it so much easier.

Regards

David Stevens, South Africa, Group of 12, May 2014


Hi Nadya,
Everyone made it back home safely, all our flights were on time and all our luggage made it too.  All in all this was a very smooth trip considering all the logistics. Thracian Cliffs was better than advertised. The golf course was stunning and so much fun to play. The accommodations were first class. The restaurant servings were delicious and the staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. The Lighthouse course and staff were good--even let us play a 6-ball. BlackSeaRama was very nice with first-class facilities.
As far as feedback, the Mercedes van that picked us up at Varna was too small for 6 guys with golf bags and luggage; It was fine for transfers between courses. The larger van was a welcome sight for our trip back to Varna.

Thanks for all your expertise--we look forward to a return trip in the next couple years.

Donal Allen, Dubai, Group of 6, May 2014

Hi Plamena.

Nice to hear from you. We had a wonderful week. The resort was very pleasant. Because apparently seasonal little was going on, it was still very quiet and we had the pools to ourselves :) The staff is very polite and attentive to our needs and went without a contradiction. No matter if service, reception or transport. The breakfast was perfect and the restaurant is probably unbeatable with this setting.

The golf courses have all exceeded what I expected. However, the facility Black Sea Rama I liked best. A golf course as "Thracian Cliffs" I have not yet experienced. And I've seen a lot. Then the Bulgarians can be proud and I am sure this course will bring you much fame and honor.

I am sure that we will come back next year. You are welcome to send me offers, but your website is indeed already very comprehensive to do.

Thank you again.

Greetings from the now cold Germany.

Hardy Erletz, Germany, Group of 2, August 2013


Plamena,

Thought I should let you know our thoughts on the trip to Bulgaria.
I wasn’t good, it wasn't very good, it was FANTASTIC!!!!!!!

Everything went almost perfectly, the flight on time, taxi waiting, into hotel, they opened bar so we could have a drink!  The hotel was very good, breakfast could do with a little improvement, a larger toaster rather than having to wait, and maybe some bacon?

Taxi driver Ivan was fantastic  always on time, if we needed picking up early he came no problem. He recommended two rest
