I did quite some free tours so far in Europe and I have to say: Sofia is my favourite!
Our guide Martin welcomed every guest personally and it took him only a few minutes to make all of us laugh. He has a broad knowledge about Bulgarian history (yes, Martin I remember your major in history 😀 ) but instead of just telling the facts he tells stories to his guests and makes history come to life.
Even though I think Sofia is a nice city I’m sure I would have never discovered it alone the way I discovered it with the free tour. From a hidden bell to a church in a backyard to a old trade street in a underpass – Martin knows all the secret places and he shares them with such joy!
He speaks very good english, too.
I also loved the insight view on the ongoing protests and I’ve learned more about Bulgarian history than I ever thought I would.
Thank you so much Martin!
