I do enjoy a good walking your, and this is one I recommend. I didn’t know anything about the history of Sofia and the guide, Stefan had many facts and stories about the area! Each landmark we visited was accompanied by a wealth of information by Stefan, his English was spot on.
He took us through ‘tolerance square’ which is a place with 4 different religious buildings! It was great to see the diversity and how it was accepted! We then saw the old communist HQ…which was an interesting sight, Stefan took us through the history of the buildings, which was an eye opener!
I find a tour relies heavily on the attitude of the guide and he delivered the odd joke here and there! He instantly put the group into a positive mood!
I definitely recommend this free tour, as he takes you through the major sights with a good understanding of the history…and has a great attitude! He knows the best places to go for nightlife and other past times! Very willing to answer questions! I’d say it’s worth a cheeky tip! 😉
