“Free walking tour Sofia”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Great tour run by Martin , who was excellent and entertaining . Did a great job of explaining potentially stodgy subjects e.g Bulgarian history in a very fun way. Covered all the main sites and added interesting anecdotes on the way. Great stuff , looking forward to doing Varna tour in the next fews days.

“Interesting made fun!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

We took the 11am tour. The tour guide, Anna, was fun and knowledgeable about the city. My sister-in-law, a fellow Bulgarian from Sofia, even learned a few things. Would definitely recommend this tour

“Discovering a nice city in a healthy way”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

Not easy to describe a 6000 years old in 3 hours, however the guide of the tour managed very well. Ideal for young travellers, never boring, many useful as well as historical info. Best way to learn about Sofia.

“MUST TAKE THIS TOUR.”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

Will help you get acquainted with the city and find your bearings. We met two of the guides, both Chris, one male and one female, both extremely friendly, both speak very clear English. Chris (Le Male) was our guide for two to three hours. Took us to the most interesting of places and gave out lots of info. Very interesting, very informative. Good pace, not tiring. Lots of walking. Mostly young people in their 20's but I did not feel out of place. My teenage daughter enjoyed it too. Some facts given are not found in guide books. Highly recommended. Will do it again in Sofia and in other cities or countries.
