Group of friends having great time in the Bulgarian mountains

A group of 12 friends decided to organise an out-of-the-box bachelor party in Sofia, Bulgaria.  

The call

Stanislas called us on WhatsApp at the agreed time (we had booked a specific time slot on the website). The video call lasted less than half an hour, which was sufficient to discuss all important details and build our upcoming bespoke trip. 

We told him we had decided to throw a surprise stag party for our friend. We wanted it to be an unforgettable event. The plan was not only to have fun and spend relaxing time together but also to do some cool activities in Bulgaria. 

Stanislas took note of our interests and desires. He presented us with several nice outdoor activities, including paintball and white-water rafting. We could have fun on a party bus on Saturday evening before going to a nightclub for an epic night. He also suggested some good options, including cool bars and restaurants in Sofia for the weekend. 

Concerning accommodation, we wanted to stay all together in a big apartment located in the city centre.  

The reservation

Stanislas emailed us a detailed description of our tailor-made holidays and a quotation the following week. It included all the elements we discussed and agreed upon during our call. He also sent us helpful advice for purchasing our flight tickets.  

As a result, we approved and signed the quotation electronically and paid a deposit. As soon as we bought our flights, we forwarded the details to Stanislas so that he could arrange a smooth transfer from Sofia airport. We were looking forward to this stag party in Bulgaria!

The preparations

Two weeks before departure, we received a comprehensive travel book setting out the complete itinerary by email. It also included many other things, such as travel advice and recommendations for restaurants and Bulgarian cuisine. 

Thanks to a specific reference number sent by Velstana, it was also available online via a link and on a handy free app (that can even be used in offline mode!) available for iOS and Android devices. 

Trip details


Paintball is fun

Upon arrival at Sofia airport, a driver greeted us and gave us a ride to our big apartment in the city centre. The main city attractions, bars and restaurants were all within walking distance. In the afternoon, we played paintball, and it was so fun and worth it! Read moreHide

Rafting and partying

A private transfer was scheduled in the morning to bring us all to the rafting centre. The 4-hour rafting on a fast river full of water proved to be a thrilling experience. Afterwards, we returned to Sofia to rest a little in our apartment before the party bus picked us up. Read moreHide

Resting for the rest of the weekend
