This was a great tour. I went in the morning and was the only person. Guess it was a slow day, though Sofia also isn’t a very touristy city. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered any questions I had. He also was curious to know if there were any subject in particular that I wanted him to touch on. He explained things in a way that was interesting and easy to understand without sounding boring. It was a lot of fun riding in the trabant and seeing the city in this sort of way. As someone who didn’t know much about the communist era, once the tour was done I felt like I could teach a class about it. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to see Sofia in a different way and learn about Bulgaria’s past! It really helped me understand why certain things in Sofia are the way they are.

A must do !
I really underestimated this one.
After I did the free sofia tour, and the food tour, I wasn't very much tempted by this one, but eventually decided to do it anyway.
Well, it turned out to be the best out of the three, it wasn't just a tour where they explain what happened etc, but very much interactive and "personnalised", you just won't get bored!
The guide we had was Ivaylo, and he's the master of his craft, has this unique point of view about things, plus very friendly and a great person overall.

I have travelled extensively for 40 years. 700 flights, 50+ countries.

I have to say this one of the very best tours I have ever been on. The guide had an intimate knowledge of what is a specialist subject. He educated and entertained us for almost three hours and was happy to answer other more general questions.

If you are interested in the transition from communism to democracy in Central and Eastern Europe I can highly recommend this tour. HIGHLY!

The tour provide an excellent overview of what it was like to live in the Communist era, and highlights some interesting spots around the city, testimonies of the past that otherwise would lie unnoticed. The guide was friendly, fun, and very well prepared. Would totally recommend this tour

Found out about this tour during a previous visit to Sofia, and was keen to join, as I was keen to have a ride in a Trabant.

The guides Evo, and Chris were fantastic. The tour was lead primarily by Evi, who we found to be very engaging, and due to the small size of the group, was happy to adapt the program, to allow us to see a couple of extra places, and was happy to point out some interesting places for us to visit ourselves.

The highlight of the tour however the ride in the Trabant, which is an experience not to be missed.

Me and two friends (all in our mid twenties) did this tour on our last day in Sofia and thought it was fab! It was very interesting, and walked you around a lot of the city, and the ride in the Trabbi at the end was an added bonus! Evo (I think that was his name) even joined us for lunch afterwards and showed us a local place he likes. Would highly recommend!

My friend and I had the chance to join this tour during our visit to Sofia. Danny and Evo was entertaining and made the tour enjoyable although the topic was about communism in the early days. Best part of the tour was we got to ride the Trabant car :)
