I just had 2 days in Sofia, so I knew I had to get the best out of it! Our group had Mitko has a guide and it was perfect! Mitko explained us all about bulgarian culture, as well as gave a lot of tips for our day ahead. It was a very cold and snow day, but he was always careful about our comfort. I totally recommend the tour! Also, as a plus, you get to know some people along the way :)

Enjoyed it the guide Stefan was nice and funny with good explanations just on the end kind of ruined it for us the Macedonians with the story of cyril and methody , look for a video od Vladimir Putin and Gorgi Ivanov which is the macedonian president and what did Vladimir Putin told to him about the slavic alphabet on that conversation , apart from that good tour , i think that the non balkan people would enjoy it more :)

Stanislav (Stanislove) is the best tourguide! He knows everything you want to know about Sofia and he's super funny. I don't know about the other tourguides, but if they're like him, you'll have a great tour! I really recommend it!

What a wonderful, educational and fun way to spend a day. Thank you Vikki for sharing your sense of fun and knowledge with us. A little bit of everything in this tour. My second tour with 365. What a terrific company as masoli traveller it is sometimes best to be a little cautious. Not caution required. To get the best out of this tour make sure you pack a sense of fun and a have a go attitude.

When you travel and read about a city, you get a quick summary. Then you meet a guide like Nora, who you can't help but get caught up in her energy and love for this city, with all it's twists and quirks. What a fun tour!

The culture tour is different in that it looks at the culture of Bulgaria as opposed to the history. You get to sample free foods and drinks, learn how to dance and find out about the meaning of their traditional costumes. Nora our guide was lovely and very knowledgeable. Her passion for her country came across and was infectious. It was a very fun and immersive experience that should be included in your trip!
