It’s very worthwhile – FREE SOFIA TOUR! I’ve used the free tours in numerous cities in Europe and this one of Sofia is excellent.

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!!

Best free tour I have been on! I took the free tour of Sofia today with Dessi as our guide, and it was fantastic! I have been on several free tours in various cities in my travels, and Dessi is the best guide I have ever had. She was thorough, intelligent, super passionate, enthusiastic and brought just the right amount of humor and personal anecdotes to the tour. Over the just over 2 hours, I learned a lot! Great overview, and I look forward to the Communist Tour with this same organization tomorrow afternoon! I really liked how they gave us little guidebooks with suggested places to visit, eat, etc. There are a variety of tours. I cannot recommend this enough!

Jewish Tour: just launched and absolutely excellent! My partner and I went on this 2h (approx) tour of Sofia which runs twice a week (Sunday at 11am + 1 other day). Guided by Slyvian, himself Jewish, took us around Sofia at a gentle pace, explaining the history of the Jews and how different tribes had come to settle in Sofia at different times (both Ashkenazi and Sephardic). Our guide had a really engaging manner and through his story telling I understood a lot more about the Jewish people’s history, whilst getting to see old gravestones, the current synagogue, interspersed with some of the history of Bulgaria. Fascinating and really interesting. I’m glad I went.

Fantastic FREE TOURs in Sofia AND PLOVDIV. We spent 5 days in Bulgaria – based in Sofia and did a free walking tour on our first evening – It was so good we decided to book a free tour in Plovdiv (we’d already booked a car and were going to visit Plovdiv anyway). We also booked their (charged) communist walking tour in Sofia – which was also excellent.

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

High energy, entertaining tour with a passionate and enthusiastic guide….brilliant! Absolutely brilliant experience. Entertaining and informative. Our guide, Martin, was excellent. Can’t speak highly enough of him. “Passionate” is a much over-used/misused word these days but Martin exuded true passion in bucket loads for his city and for the Communism history of Sofia. Throughout the tour he kept us entertained and informed with expressive, high energy delivery and moments which bordered on performance art!

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!

Must do in Sofia. We just had the afternoon tour and it was an awesome experience! Mitko, our tour guide, made us feel comfortable and filled us with all the historical and cultural information about the city and Bulgarian past and present! The tour took about two hours, walking around all the historical city sightseeing. It’s a must do if you find yourself in Sofia!

Best experience in Sofia! One of my best memories about Sofia is free walking tour with Kris of “Association 365”. It was late November, rainy and cold, most of our group didn’t make it until the end of the walk, so I was left one-to-one with Kris. I suggested him to go home, but being such a dedicated guide he offered me to finish this tour! Then he even switched to russian (it was fun for us both), which is almost as good as his english, by the way:) Despite the harsh conditions, Kris remained positive and optimistic all the time.

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!

Great insights from local guide. We did the general tour and the Communist tour and enjoyed both. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable and not afraid to answer difficult questions and address sensitive issues. Highly recommended.
