By my expirience you'll hang out mainly with foreigners that are also exploring the city. The tour guides are cool dudes that would present you with some fascinating history facts and will help you crawl some nice places. Remember to bring your IDs.

Nice tour of the city. Vasil was knowledgeable and arrived on time. However, I was late due to a few things and I admire how he waited for me and still gave me the full tour. I highly recommend. This tour does allow pets so that was good. A friend of mine was able to bring her small dog. Vasil also allowed us to take as many pictures with the car. He was very patient. I would have given the rating a 5 if he was dress in the uniform and if the car was clean. The car on the outside was dirty and needed a good wash. I was expecting to see the guide properly dressed. He wore street clothes with a coat. I was disappointed in this because I wanted the full experience. Thank you.

My tour was with Danny and just me! He was amazing, made me feel very comfortable being on my own. Extremely knowledgeable and very humourous. Food was fun, but enjoyed finding out about the history, culture and general life in Bulgaria (Sofia) more. Well worthwhile!!.thanks Danny!!

Absolutely fantastic trip, the monestary it self was a little mediocre compared to those in other parts of Europe. However, our guide made the tour, Georgi’s knowledge of the local area, historic, religious, geography and politics was outstanding. The trip was more educational than touristy. Melnik is a really special place, we had a fantastic lunch and enjoyed learning about the historical significance of the village. The locals sell all goods produced in the area and we picked up some lovely momentos for home. The vineyard was great another amazing guide in a young local girl - Johanna! The people we met made the tour a unique and memorable experience. Totally surpassed my expectations. This is a tour for history lovers and as a historican I loved it! Couldn’t recommend highly enough, booking, pick up, drop off all seamless.

My friend and I really enjoyed our guided tour of the city- we were lucky enough that no one else booked that day, but I would imagine this to be busier in the summer. Our guide was so thorough and passionate about Sofia- we could tell he really knew his stuff! It was lovely to have the breakfast mid way through as it meant we could sit down and enjoy the city before carrying on. I would definitely recommend this tour if the weather is good!

I travel a lot. The guide I had was clever, insightful and funny. I usually forget what guides say straight after the tour. This time I can remember so many things. Maybe I can be a guide. Lol

I arrived in Sofia that day and only a few hours to see the main sights of the city. The affordable walking tour was great. My guide Yordan was friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I saw the main sights and had a very enjoyable afternoon. I found VIP-Sliven Ltd a very reliable tour company. They sent me a confirmation email with the name of my guide and the time he would meet me. I would definitely recommend this tour.

This is a place not to be missed. It has a certain about of charm and the artistry on the wall is immense/ strikingly beautiful. We went to the Rila Monastery and the Boyana trip for as the wine tasting tour is out of season at the moment. Michael the tour guide looked after us and explained the history of the place. We went in February and it even snowed. They also stop for lunch at a quaint restaurant that had a fire. Try the fresh trout if you like fish.
Definitely a lovely trip to go on.

The wine portion of this tour was terrific! Bulgaria makes very good wines, and the host at the winery was friendly and knowledgeable.
There needs to be better communication concerning the strenuous walking and hill climbing on this tour. Fortunately, our tour guide shared this with us on the drive to Plovdiv and was able to accommodate me by dropping me off at a plaza to sit in a café while my husband went on the tour.

We were collected by Vasil at the agreed time from our hotel in Sofia. During the 60 min journey to the first vineyard, Vasil gave us a potted history of Bulgaria and pointed out interesting points on our journey. Both vineyards were equally interesting and very different. At both locations we were shown round by very passionate vintners and enjoyed the tastings which were tailored to our preferences. We had lunch at the second vineyard which was delicious and comprised mainly locally sourced produce including goat - which I can recommend!
A great day out from Sofia

I had a wonderful time with
her(,nice guide).
While traveling by car, I heard about Bulgaria's geography and history. It was interesting.
I took a walk while receiving a polite explanation of the city of Plovdiv.
In wine tasting, I was able to enjoy it slowly.
On the way back I stopped at Red Church and I felt like I had a time slip.
It was very fun!

私は素敵なガイドさんのおかげでとても有意義な時間をすごすことができました。
車での移動中は、ブルガリアの地理や歴史のお話を聞くことが出来ました。プロブディフの街では、丁寧な説明を受けながら散策しました。
ワインテイスティングでは、ゆっくりと自分のペースで楽しむことができました。
帰り道に立ち寄ったレッドチャーチでは、タイムスリップしたような気分になりました。
とても有意義な1日でした。

My guide Vasil was a very nice and knowledgeable guide for this beautiful city, and he was helpful and accommodating when I asked a million questions. He explained all of the places he took me to in a fascinating way, and the restaurant he brought me to for lunch was one of the coolest concepts for a restaurant that I've ever been to. Additionally the food at the restaurant, Cosmos, was stellar...and the waitstaff was phenomenal. Couldn't have had a better experience. HIGHLY recommend this tour!!!

Highly recommended tour when in Sofia. Main focus is on history of Sofia and Plovdiv. I got an excellent overview of Bulgaria from pre historic times to today. The tour of the different parts of Plovdiv was very comprehensive. In addition to history, a great stop at one of the best breweries in Bulgaria, including a personal tour and tasting. If looking for a fun way to see Plovdiv, this was perfect!! Mato specifically was fantastic, answered all my questions from modern day pop culture to ancient day Thracia.

We were lucky to be hosted by this couple during our recent visit to Sofia. We enjoyed an evening in their apartment with spectular views with food and drinks prepared for us. We were picked up at our hotel and then taken to a local market to obtain items which were used to prepare our meal. Kremena provided time to shop for souvenirs if interested. They used local ingredients and gave us some interesting facts about them. Dimitar a trained chef showed us different techniques for preparing our meal. They are able to accommodate any requests you may have for specific meals. We recommend them highly and the class was the highlight of our trip!
