Excellent tour. Niki was very cool and had a very good knowledge of the history of Sofia and Bulgaria in general. I would recommend this to everyone
We had Dino as our guide, who is an actor and a very enthusiastic and funny guy. His pride in his city shone through, but he was also full of tongue in cheek comments that made it an enjoyable two hours. Jeremy Nicholas - writer and broadcaster

Try also the food tour which is great experience to taste some local food

The guide was very informative. It was a great way to see a lot of the city and learn about the history.
We walked around by ourselves the day before but decided to join this tour as we had time and would like to know more about city. We joined the 11am tour on Sunday and we had Alex as our guide. She was fun and tried to involve everyone when telling us the history/stories of the city. The pace of the tour was adequate and no rushing around (plenty of time for photo-taking). At the end she answered many questions like where to have lunch, how to get to places etc...
We are glad that we followed this tour because we missed a few things on the first day and Alex did a fantastic job giving us the background of the places we saw!
I have to say I am impressed by the professionalism of the guide (Vasil). He was full of interesting facts, he was informed, knew the dates, the history, the buildings and he was also pretty funny. Every tourist who wants to know more about Sofia should do the tour, seriously.
At the beginning of February I found myself in Sofia for a couple of days on business. As this was my first time in Bulgaria, I started researching how to best utilize my time after work to explore this wonderful city!
I found Free Sofia Tours and at 6pm on our first night there, a colleague and myself found ourselves being led all around the city by one of the guides Kristina! Kristina was an absolute dream of a tour guide; not only did she have extensive knowledge about the history and cultural backgrounds of every place she took us too, she was happy to answer any questions we had, and even handed out Bulgarian sweets as prizes for impromptu quizzes! We had a great time walking around Sofia and by the end of the 2 hours I felt as though I had a much more comprehensive understanding of the city which was great to draw on for the rest of my time there.
So a big THANK YOU to Kristina for being an amazing guide, and THANK YOU to Free Sofia Tours for providing such a great service!!

We covered an amazing amount of ground in two hours. It's a good way to meet other travellers too and I had a good chat about Ukraine with a student from Kiev.

Very detailed and very interesting! The guide (Hi Kris!) was very entertaining and knowledgeable and the tour itself covers the most important sites in Sofia. It's best you the morning tour and have the afternoon to go back to the sites of your choice.
The best way to see the city and learn about its history...Our guide ##kristina## was very energetic and informative about the city and how to move around the city,even though it was freezing outside.I have never been a big fan of tour guides coz i like to travel on my own pace.But this short event was real fun for me,especially organized by a non-profit organisation.Donating a bit for the good cause isn't gonna hurt our pockets...
Loved it :)
