The tour was great. We learnt a lot from it, it was very interesting and it was a great fun at the same time. The guide Stoyan was super helpful. Me and my friend had trouble with accomodation - we didn´t have a place to stay. But he was so willing to help us and finally he agreed with one... More

It was a nicely organized tour. Our guide was Alex and she was so nice to tell us nice stories about the city. Even in the really old January weather we enjoyed. My Slovenian friend was impressed. Highly recommended.

Yes, it's really free! Alex(andra) was wonderful. We did this on the second day of our three-day weekend and wished we'd started with it on our first day instead. Do yourself a favor and take the time - get out early if necessary - to start your visit to Sofia here unless you really know what's going on. As Alex... More

It was a really cold night (maybe -10°C in the end) in January, and walking thru Sofia's streets was a challenge because of many slippery patches of ice. It looked like an absolutely crazy idea to join a walking tour. What awaited me was a great experience, a two-hour walk in downtown Sofia with Alex. She is a captivating narrator... More

We arrived in Sofia on Friday night and didn't know much of what to do, so decided a walking tour would be ideal on our first morning to get to know the city. Our guide, Victoria, was very informative and made the tour fun. It was a very relaxed tour that was informal yet very informative and Victoria was very... More

I did the Free Sofia Tour on a bitterly cold Monday in January, because most museums are closed that day. It was great! We were shown the most important sites in Sofia and got a lot of information about the city. The tour couldn't be better: Svetla was an excellent, cheerful and very committed guide. She also spoke us about... More
