Lots of people have written blog posts about their stay in Sofia and they always recommend the Free Sofia Tour. Follow the links to read the stories about their experience in Bulgaria. Here are some highlights and the reasons why they like us so much:
the best advice you’ll get if you plan to visit sofia! Whether you’re a long-time resident, new to the city or just passing through, you’ll learn something fascinating about Sofia on this free walking tour. I’ve taken it twice and I can promise that while most of the highlights were the same, both guides added something different through sharing their own little tidbits of local culture
Sofia tour offers plenty of value! Unlike paid guides, who might feel bound to a just-the-facts approach, Petar freely offered his opinions and perspectives during a casual 2.5 hour tour of the downtown sights.
But the best thing about Sofia was the joy that the locals took in their city… free walking tours of the city provided by students who clearly love what they are doing… On day 2 we went on a free walking tour of Sofia, hosted by the lovely lady on the left.
The tour was fab, very informative and the guide even threw in a few jokes, we got taken round all the highlights of the city – I would definitely recommend it.
Later that evening we went on a Free Sofia Tour with a local tour guide. Surprisingly, BG has a lot of ancient history – like I mentioned above, it was the crossroads for many ancient civilizations.
The tour was put on by a non-profit, youth-run group in Sofia, and the two leaders that day were some pretty enthusiastic kids from the local university. They were full of lots of great information and history about the city which would be uninteresting to regurgitate here, but talking with one of the leaders after the tour tipped me off to the next stop I would make in Bulgaria.
Throughout the 2h30 tour, he provided us all with a lot of information on sites, their history and Sofia throughout the ages. He was enthusiast and very knowledgeable and that made this tour the best possible introduction to the city. The tour was also the opportunity to taste the water of the natural mineral source located next to the Jewish synagogue, a very tasty and warm water, unusual for sure. Almost on the same spot, another surprise was the “discovery” of the communist star that used to stand on top of the party main building and that got hastily removed by helicopter in 1989 and dropped there. Most people from Sofia ignore its location.
Anyway the walking tour was pretty cool. Sofia has a lot of nice architecture and some interesting things here and there. Pretty cool city actually. A lot better than i expected it to be
