We took the tour with Slavyan as our guide. The tour lasted around an hour and a half. He was informative telling us lots of interesting stories about Sofia. I enjoyed the mini performance about the Royal family of Bulgaria. I would highly recommend taking this tour.

Nice tour, not very long which is good. The tour guide was funny and friendly. We tipped 5 Leva per person at the end of the tour.

I only had one evening free when I was in Sofia and I'm very glad I took the Free Sofia Tour. Slavyan was a knowledgable and witty guide who made sure we saw all the major sights of Sofia and had terrific stories and anecdotes to share about all of them. I highly recommend the tour.

A very well put together tour. Our guide, Nikola, was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He managed to provide enough detail and humour to make the 2 hours fly by with many stops and information that were not even mentioned in our Lonely Planet guide book (actually wondering if the authors of that book have even been to Sofia!). Simply a... More
