The Free Sofia Tour is very happy to announce that on the 21st of June 2015 our team greeted its guest number 75,000! Even though it was a rainy day neither our guides nor our guests were scared away by the weather. As promised we were waiting for our honorable 75,000th tourist to arrive without taking notice of the coldness and the wind. Furthermore, we had 13 brave visitors from all over the world, armed with curiosity and prepared to learn more about the city of Sofia. We did not fail to recognize the symbolic meaning behind the number 13 which is lucky for the 365 Association, since all of its projects in different cities – Sofia, Plovdiv and Varna – have been started on the 13th day of different months. During the almost five years of its existence the Free Sofia Tour has welcomed tourists from more than 150 countries.

It’s the beginning of February; winter holidays are (unfortunately) gone and well forgotten, so we at the Free Sofia Tour are already starting to think ahead. You might have seen us on the street, you might have seen us in the media, you might have heard someone tell you stories of us… If you haven’t, this is who we are and what we do. Remembering the hordes of inquisitive guests from all over the world that we welcomed in the last two summers, and utilizing our basic, yet sufficient math skills, we have come to the realization that we need a new group of fresh and enthusiastic people to join our team and help us make everyone happy this coming summer as well. Take a look at our poster and if you see yourself in it, don’t hesitate to contact us. If you see someone else in it, don’t hesitate to tell them not to hesitate to contact us as well!
