I did the tour together with some friends during our stay a few weeks ago. Our tourguide Slavyan was really amazing. During the 2 hours(!) he told so many stories about this awesome city, we really enjoyed and learned a lot. It is a clear recommendation to join whenever you are in Sofia.
Nice tour. Guide(Nora) was funny, informative and did not have too long stories. Perfect!

Our guide, Alex, did a great job showing us around the city and provded lots of interesting information on the history and sights in Sofia and Bulgaria.
We took the 6pm tour on a Friday and although the there were many people waiting for the tour they split it up into two smaller groups which were the perfect size for a city tour.
The tour was just over a couple of hours which was enough time to see all of the key sights.
We highly enjoyed the Sofia free walking tour and the charming way Ani - a charming young professional theater actress - led it. Within some two hours we walked through most of Sofia's main attractions (mainly a variety of old churches) and got a sense of what this old urban center is like.
Ani, the guide, had a unique style about her. Probably because unlike most other guides with Historian background, she is a theater actress. Her genuine smile, engaging style and witty anecdotes brought Sofia's history to life. Highly recommended.
I really enjoyed this it was well organised and very interesting. I am only sorry there aren't more tours like this in the other cities I visit. I cant remember going on a better tour- let alone a free one.

I walked with Kris - one of the founding members of the group. He was as knowledgeable, witty, and informative as can be - with a good mix of insight, humor, and energy. He had fun tidbits about the things one may encounter every day, and even as someone who grew up in Sofia, I found myself learning new bits and pieces of the city
I went on the 6pm tour. The guide I had was Martin, he knew his stuff really well and he also made it funny. I really enjoyed this tour. As I didn't know what to expect in Sofia this added to my knowledge of the place. And at the end trying to find the bell for the church was fun, mainly to do with the weird place it is located in ( I won't tell you where it is, otherwise that would take the fun out of finding it for you).

I went to both Sofia and Plovdiv tour with some foreign friends, and I learned like 80% new stuff for my city Sofia and a 100% of Plovdiv :):) I rediscovered my city and my country. If you Bulgarian know English, you MUST join as well! Great time! 5*****.

I enjoyed the Free Sofia Tour last Sunday. Our guide Niki was really fun and full of interesting facts. The time which I spent was really nice and worth every minute. I am looking forward to next tour on which I'll be attending with another friend of mine this Sunday.

This is a 2 hour walking tour. I was surprised when I saw so many peple taking this tour that we had to break into 2 groups. The morning one broke in 3 groups.
You get to know very much abour Bulgarian history, we had Slavian as a tour guide and he did a very good job.
