I am glad I joined this tour since I was given an indepth information of the important sights in Sofia. It was just two hours but you get to walk around the city and enjoy the sight and sound of Sofia. I would encourage any visitor to this city to start with this tour and maybe join the other tours...

Done the 11am free (tips basis) walking tour guided by Dessie. She was extremely knowledgable and made the 2 hours fly by. She told us Sofia insider stories you cannot find in a guide book, and pointed out things to us, one would just walk past. Her English was excellent and she made the whole tour fun with asking us...

We really liked the tour. Despote the late houd our tour guide was very energetic and we had great time walking with him around the city. For sure the best way to explore the city/country you don't know anything about.
