An American teacher who has already been living in Bulgaria for three years visited the free walking tour of Sofia today. She was nice enough to then share with us her thoughts about her experience in her blog, labelled Karolinka In & Around Bulgaria.
“They’re great. Really great I might add. They were organized. Thoughtful. Knowledgeable. Well-spoken. Good looking. And they made sure that no one got lost and no one got hit by a car. That last one is pretty important considering the nightmare that is traffic in Sofia and the huge amount of construction happening downtown these days.”
“The tour did a great job balancing history, culture and place. My guide was very fluent in English and knowledgeable about the city. He did a really great job navigating the various interests of our diverse group.”
“Mostly, I went along to take pictures and to check out the quality of the tour. The quality you might ask? Top-notch and I’ve been on my fair share of tours in Eastern Europe.”
“I was really happy with the 2 hour (more like 2 and 1/2 hour tour by the time we got started). Moreover, the tour seemed to hit the right note for older tourists in their 50 and 60′s as well as twenty-something backpackers. That’s not an easy balance to strike. All in all, I had a great time.”
“So, if you’re new to the city, visiting the city for the first time or looking to brush up on Sofia’s main attractions, I’d recommend checking out Free Sofia Tour. They were great. Professional. Funny. And they gave pretty good advice on restaurants to check out and places to grab a beer outside.”
Thank you, Carolyn!
