The Culture Tour is the third one I’ve done with these amazing guys from 365. It is a very well organized Tour that brings you, as it is said, to taste, touch, smell, hear and see bits of Bulgarian culture during 2.5 hours. Very interactive and fun, Svetla, our guide, was enthusiastic about sharing parts of her daily life, and she even made us perform a traditional dance! To recommend as it is interesting for everyone!
There is a reason this tour has such high ratings! I opted for the 6pm tour to escape the worst heat of the day. To my amazement enough people arrived to make 2 groups. I joined Anina’s group. She was fantastic! She gave a brief history of Bulgaria to put the different sites we were about to see in perspective. Even if you don’t like history, you will be entertained! Anina has a wonderful way of making history sound like a story. The 2 hour tour takes you to all the main attractions in the Sofia city center and the history and context of the sights are explained. I recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your visit to Sofia. It will help you decide which of these sights you want to explore in more detail. The tour will also give you an introduction to Bulgarian culture and traditions. This tour is a definite must when visiting Sofia!
Decided to do this after the free Sofia tour run by the same organisation. Martin, our guide was great as he mixed in anecdotes from his family about life behind the iron curtain along with the facts. It was a fun way to learn more about the history of Sofia. Strongly recommend.
Thanks for the good experience and keep up the good work 🙂

I was amazed how well my tour guide (Niki) could remember all the facts and history of Sofia. The walk is about two hours walk and you get to see all the best architectures around Sofia. It was a fun walk. Highly recommended. Plus it’s free.
