Interesting and insightful
Our tour guide, Mitko, is a history student (halfway through his PhD) at the University of Sofia and was a passionate, entertaining and knowledgable speaker. He put the whole history of Bulgaria into a 10 minute introduction which was masterful and gave us all a framework to hang all of the subsequent information on. We have taken city tours all over the world and I have to say that this was by far the best. He mixed the factual history with personal anecdotes and analysis of the economic and political situation in Bulgaria. Outstanding and highly recommended. He kept the whole tour party including our 12 and 14 year old in the palm of his hand all through the two and a half hours.
Also really impressed with the Free Tour format. Absolutely no pressure to make any monetary contribution but incredibly high quality product. A the end of the tour it was impossible not be be generous in reflection of a real insight into Bulgarian history, life, humour and hope.
