It is a free 2 hour tour that goes at casual pace walking to the main sites in Sofia. They don't go in any of the places, but they give you the history, times, and prices if you want to come back and visit any of them. They do a great job keeping it interesting. They do appreciate a tip at the end. If you go on the 11am tour, ask the guide where the balkin bite tour starts. That tour starts at 2pm about 4 blocks from where the walking tour ends. That tour lets you try Bulgarian food and gives you insight to some things off the beaten track. The bonus is that tour actually ends in the location that the walking tour started. Both tours together give you a fun and insight day to Bulgarian life. I recommend both.
We had a lovely tour and our guide Viktoria was very friendly and she knew lots of interesting things about the city, this free tour is a must in Sofia.

The Free Sofia Tour is the best way to see all the main attractions of the city, get some recommendations on some others and discover the hidden secrets of the Bulgarian capital. Martin, our guide, was amazing, and managed to hold and entertain and teach a group of more than 40 people for more than 2 hours. Definitely recommend it!
Very knowledgeable tour guide. Great way to spend a few hours. Victoria was our guide and she was able to share a lot of information. It is an easy walk but some stairs. Highly recommend
Large group Martin seemed a bit annoying at first but was a genuinely caring and passionate soul Tour started a bit late in the day as it was dark half way through Was fascinating though and gave good insight on Sofia history and arcitexture
Martin was our guide for a bit more than 2 hours. Eventhough we were a huge group this time, he managed to make the tour very personal. Mixing history, description, jokes and anecdotes, he introduced us to his city with passion !
I highly recommand this tour, it's a good way to have a overview on the city and understand its very interesting history ! And really, it was 2 hours of fun with him !

The guide Martin made this for me! A walking tour can always be a good way to get an informative, interesting, and local perspective on a place, but when the personality showing you is as warm and fun as Martin's you get all of that and more. Loved the couple of hours spent walking around sofia, i learnt so much, and had a good laugh and a lot of smiles along the way. Thankyou Martin, highly recommend this walking tour
The tour with Radina was amazing. She knows lots of things about the city and she really makes you to have a good time. Excellent.

This was one of the highlights of our week long business trip to Sofia. Due to work commitments, the evening timing was great. Our guide, Ani, was fantastic - she shared lots of interesting/amusing stories of the sights and history. We were lucky enough that our tour coincided with a concert in front of the national theatre (beautiful building), complete with a performance by one of the best Bulgarian rock bands and fireworks! An unexpected treat. The tour is really good to help you get your bearings and decide future self-guided excursions.
An interesting mix of nationalities participated in our tour which I appreciated as you could hear different interpretations and experiences from different nationalities.
Best way to start off your first day in Sofia. Our guide, Slav was entertaining and informative. we had a great morning with him !
