Our guide was called Christina who was a Bulgarian who lives in Sofia and volunteers. She made the tour very personal with stories from her grandparents and parents. We were introduced to most of the important sights in Sofia and she made it fun and interactive. My daughter had done the tour the week before with her friend and said she had a different tour guide who was also very good. We were free to ask questions throughout the tour and my daughter and I strongly recommend this tour. (For those in wheelchairs the route would be difficult lots of steps)
I really enjoyed this walking tour. I did the free walking tour with Ani, and then the Culture tour (not free) with Christina. The walking tour was a great introduction to Sofia. We saw the main sites, learned a lot of history, and it helped me to get my bearings around the city. Ani was also super helpful with information about restaurants and the city. The Culture Tour was also a lot of fun. It’s not expensive, and you get to try some traditional food and drinks, try traditional dancing, and learn about different aspects of Bulgarian culture you probably wouldn’t otherwise.
Absolutely loved this walking tour. We were taken to the main sights of the city and given a great history lesson as well as some fantastic, local-in-the-know tidbits as we wandered round the city. We loved Ani’s enthusiasm and she was so helpful at the end giving advice!
Enjoyed a cheerful day in Sofia. Bright and animated tour with Ani. Like the best performers she finished with a song. Delightful and just enough to see the best bits of Sofia.
This is a great free tour that motivates you to go into the city centre and visit some other sights on your own later on. It’s pleasant with the just right amount of history so it does not get boring for all those of us that are not too much into the details. 🙂
The tour is great, taking you to the main sights in about 2 hours that fly by so fast! 🙂 The guide took the time to tell some unknown facts about the tour’s stop points, but also answered all kinds of questions by the group. I joined one of their special tours in Bulgarian (part of their anniversary tours) and felt like I was in a foreign city.
We were intrigued by Martin’s in-depth historical knowledge and zest for showing us his city. We really enjoyed his take on Bulgaria!

We had daniele and he was excellent. Although I took it later in my holiday it was still worth it. Best to know beforehand there is a lot of climbing up and down steps. And don’t be mean with your donation!
Great tour! Takes you to the main city attractions with interesting history stories that our guide Dessy told us so nicely… It was a pleasure and we highly recommend this tour 🙂
Alex, the tour guide, gave us a well presented, fun but very informative tour covering the main central sites and helping us to get our bearings. The tour group was engaged through questions as well as a historical game! Great first thing to do in Sofia – now off to investigate some of the sights in more detail.
