Last update January 2015

We didn’t invent the wheel. Other cities around the world had started free walking tours so in August 2010 we decided it was high time that Sofia joined. It was only logical that we would contact other tours to exchange info, ideas and know-how. An informal network was created and soon the idea of the common flyer came up:

We present you – United Europe Free Tours. In other words – if you are travelling to BarcelonaBerlin, Bratislava, Bucharest, Budapest, Ceski Krumolov, LisbonLjubjana , London, MadridPrague or San Sebastian   make sure you don’t miss the tours organized by our great friends there. A click on the name of the city in the text would send you to their websites for more information.

These are the best free tours in terms of quality and entertainment. Just look at their testimonials and rankings on TripAdvisor provided by the users that already had the pleasure of joining any of the United Europe Free Tours. No booking is required. Just show up at their meeting spots with a smile.

Did you know that there are free tours in lots of cities in the world beside the Sofia free tour? A lot of people who join our tour like the idea so much that they decide to make something like that in their home cities. So don’t be surprised if you soon see a free tour in Turin (Italy), Beirut (Lebanon) or Oaxaca (Mexico) apart from the tours already operating below.

  42. if you let the cream “go bad”, you can make cultured butter with it. cream can sit in the fridge for a few weeks, even, before you get around to making the butter! extra delicious, extra nutritious. i like to add fresh herbs from the garden and salt the butter; then all i need to do it toss a veggie or an egg into the butter and a dish is all set!

    I would like to know if there is any free tour in istambul (can´t see the web page) and where does it start? July 2012

  48. Jana says:

    Yes, the free walking tours are great idea. I have taken part in few. However, you should specify that these tours, rather than free are by donation. The minimum amount of donation is sometimes stated, as was the case of a Cusco tour I took. The guide made it clear that we should donate 10 pesos or more each.
    There are nice way to meet other people and walk in a group, the quality of the tour vary depending on the guide and sometimes on the business sponsorship, I guess. Again, the tour in Cusco took us to visit some bars and clubs – not really of high interest to me, I would have prefer to learn more history and cultural background, but than again, these are ‘free’.
    Hope to try few more to have a more complete experience of them.
