Being a small city this tour hits the main spots for a first time tourist easily by foot and then affords one to expand accordingly on sites they fancy. Slavyan our guide was great. Had lots of humor, interesting stories and very informative.
Joined this tour with my daughters and so glad we did!! Dimitrov was our guide and he was a great mix of funny, intelligent and very knowledgeable. We walked for 2 hours and saw lots of sights as well as some great stories. There was no way we would have learnt as much as we did without the tour. We went back later to spend longer at those sites of interest. Highly recommend this one. Leave him a great tip he is really worth it!!
We did 3 tours with them , free Sofia , Communist tour and the Alternative tour . All were very different but all were brilliant . The last 2 you had to pay for but you get more than your money’s worth. The best in Sofia
This was no dry history tour – anything but. Martin interwove Bulgaria’s Communist history with the personal experiences of his parents and grandparents and this made it feel much more real. And he kept a balance, presenting both the positives and negatives of Bulgaria’s Communist past in a credible way. Having done a city tour the day before which covered the history and monuments of the city, this was an excellent overlay. It wasn’t another city tour with bits of communistic info thrown in, this was a tour dedicated to giving insight into how Communism affected the country and its people. A genuine highlight of our weekend. Thanks Martin!
The tour itself was very informative and extensive, covering a lot of historical events from ancient greeks to modern history, program is saturated but not overwhelmed, in my opinion, of course. I was happy to get to know more about Sofia and Bulgaria! Amazing, thank you!
