What people are saying about Bansko

It was exactly as advertised. The guy who took us didn't speak much English yet we were able to communicate with him very well. We we didn't have any experience and yet he made us feel safe the whole time. I highly recommend as it was a really special experience.

Everything went smoothly, all staff were very nice, great to see how all the animals are well kept. And you could see the relationship between the owners and horses . Great break from skiing, with beautiful views ♥️
