I am in Sofia to work for my company and so i dont have much time during the day to see Sofia. A colleague suggested the free walking tour, so I went on the 6pm tour today. The tour guide was Niki. He spoke very clear english and also was very clear on explaining the bulgarian language and translating between the two. He gave a great introduction to Bulgaria and was very knowledgable at each of the sights we visited. The tour ran til just after 8pm, but it didnt even seem like it had been 2 hours, as the information and the sights were very fascinating. The tour enabled me to see much more of the city and learn about the city in those 2 hours, than if i had have bought books and spent a couple of days just walking around etc.
Niki was also very helpful with any questions that didnt relate specifically to the tour.
The tour is free, and tips are welcome, but at the end, Niki didnt even have to mention if anyone would like to give a tip as everyone already had money ready to give
The tour has made me want to see and do even more in Sofia, possibly even return for a short break 🙂
