I took two tours...the free history tour and a new tour focused on culture. Both were very good. The tour size was large (25) so it was difficult to hear the guides at times. Guides were friendly and knowledgeable and encouraged questions.
They need to watch the length of their tours. I was told the culture tour would be about 3 hers and it was over 4 hours. The history tour was advertised as 1.5 hours but ran 2.15 hours. Maybe it was due to the large group size. Otherwise this was a great way to spend an afternoon in Sofa.

Fantastic! Lovely guide, and although it was her first tour, she did an excellent job and we were very happy. Not too much walking, because main sites are all very close. Would highly recommend.

I spent one day in Sofia participating free tours, first I join normal tour which was plenty of interesting and funny stories which still keep in my mind, to guide was motivated and energetic and was really nice walk. After that I join comunist tour, was amazing tour for 3h really deep in the topic, we were small group everyone really interested people. It was one of the best tours I did.
Nice tour to do, especially when it's your first time in Sofia. In less then 2 hours you will get a global image of the city and its most important places, so you can later go and discover everything more at ease if you want to.
The tours are given by enthusiastic young people, most of them are studying tourism or something in that area. It's amazing that the choose to do this for free, just to help people get to know their awesome city.
A great way to discover Sofia! Living in Sofia for my job, I always handover my family and friends to the lovely and dynamic guides of the Free Sofia Tour. They all appreciate these guided tours during which the history of Sofia and Bulgaria are explained in a nutshell .. perfect way to get yourself introduced and find out what you want to explore more in detail during your next days.
Thanks a lot Christina!

We highly recommend this walk. It allows you to get to know Sofia. Our guide Nikki kept us entertained with the history of Sofia and the highlights of the city. These tours are a great idea. The guides come from here, know the city well, are enthusiastic, fun and accommodating to all their guests.

It was the first day for us in Sofia so we took this free tour with delightful Christina. We could learn about basic points of interest at once so it was easy to plan our further stay in the city. We were explained basic history of Bulgaria and some nice legends which made the tour very informative. Christina was very friendly, she got into touch with everyone in the group and always was ready to answer the questions. Also we liked the game :)
