I was a bit reluctant to take a free tour, is anything really free? The TripAdvisor reviews changed my mind and what did I have to lose? I decided to go to the evening tour last night, our tour guide Kristina greeted most of us and off we went. We were told we could leave the tour at any time, a donation at the end would be appreciated, you can even make a donation by credit card! A TripAdvisor review was requested and appreciated.
I am not a fan of tours, but this was fun. Kristina’s tour had just enough history and humor and she made a point to learn a little bit about each of her guests which I appreciated. Before I knew it the tour was over, hard to believe two hours went by that quickly. I asked her for a dinner recommendation and once again her suggestion to try a traditional Bugarian restaurant was excellent. Our meal at Izbata ( www.izbata.bg) was excellent, try the chicken stuffed with spinach in phyllo or lamb with a minty sauce! Thank you Kristina for making our stay in Sofia a memorable one!
