I was in Sofia recently and went on the Free Sofia tour, a two-hour walking tour around the key central sights. While it covers lot of ground, the walking involved is probably managable for most people.
The tour covered all the key places you would want to see, and our guide Dino provided information on history, architecture and society.
This was a great attraction that I would recommend to others.

With only a few hours in Sofia, I decided to join the tour after having good experiences in other cities. This was again a very good one! Our guide, Dino, was fun and informative, providing just the good mix of historical facts and fun anecdotes. Recommended!
Blagudarja (Thank you) Slavyan! Great tour spiced up with lots of fun and jokes, but has high quality content. I highly recommend to anyone. They have other topic tours as well. Amazing as it is! We want to come back in a summer time to see other cities and take their other tours. Ciao! :)
No matter how cold it was outside Niki was absolutely awsome guide! I live in Sofia for quite some years now and I have never found it so interesting and stunning. I have sent foreign friends to this tour, but when my husband and me finally went ourselves I understood truly what everyone was talking about. 2 hours spent in another time and place while walking in the streets of our well known city.
Thanks again Niki, couldn´t ask for a better guide! ^_^
I'd been living in Sofia for a year when I decided to take the tour and I loved it! I learned so much about the history of the buildings which I'd seen many times before but had no idea about! I also found it was a great way to find my way around the city on foot as previously I was only going by car to the city centre. The tour guide was great, he gave us lots of local knowledge and made everything interesting and fun. I highly recommend the tour!
Loved this walking tour! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and a wonderful person! Even took us to a great small "mom and pop" restaurant afterwards. Food was delicious! This tour was well worth the time spent. Make sure you tip these excellent guides well!
Excellent tour even though it was snowing hard and somebody forgot their gloves! The weather conditions and the night lights made it quite magical.

Sofia is one of the best city in Eastern Europe . Excellent Climate & a neat city. People are cooperative. Cost of living is reasonable compared to the other European City. It is right destination for the people who love sirenty & quietness. All kind of food available there . For Indian there are some good Indian restaurant like Tajmahal which serves good Indian cuisine.
Recommend for a holiday trip with the family
The tour is completely free but they show you all the main monuments of the center and they explain you their history... It's very interesting and is like speaking with a friend. Absolutely recommemded!!!!
The tour was brilliant. Dessi our guide was energetic and entertaining and really knows her stuff! I'll take the tour again and I'll go back to visit snide some of the locations (you only stop outside). An idea would have been to take an empty bottle to collect mineral water. Thank you
