The guided tour was really nice. With a lot of stories, explanations, and even a 'play' to explain the history of Bulgaria ! . It was definitively worth it.
Viki was an excellent tour guide! She is very knowledgeable, interesting and has a very cute accent. The tour made me realize that locals really are the best sources of information... reading from a book does not do the city justice. I would definitely recommend the tour!

I joined one of this evening tours to walk around Sofia. Really nice. Niki, who was our guide was fun and knowledgeable and full of energy. Loved it. Appreciate the fact that they are doing it for free throughout the year, whatever the weather be.
Get to know the beautiful city from the eye ( and mouth) of a local.. ask questions, and enjoy.
Well done guys, keep up the good work.
We did the free Sofia tour last week. I would definitely recommend. Guide was very knowledgeable and offered extra little bits of info that you wouldn't get in any guide book.
Fantastic tour by Daniel. Very knowledgeable, very interesting. Would highly recommend Thank You very much
Filip was our guide for the 6 pm tour. He is friendly and shares his passion for Sofia. Despite the cold, no one left the tour before the end. In fact, Filip not only knows a lot but he has also the ability to make History as a living and entertaining experience
If you are travelling to Sofia and think that the place is a bit of a shell rather than substance, then you can't go past the free Sofia tour.
The tour guides are fluent in English and full of interesting facts about the area. With around 6,000 years of history from before the Thracians (Hercules times), to the Romans, the Byzantines, Ottomans and Russians, it really is a lot to take in. I am a bit of a fan of history anyway, but this tour really filled in a lot of gaps about Bulgaria and its people.
Don't do yourself a disservice, jump onto the next tour as I am sure you will glad you did so.....

I was in Sofia the last week of October and that was the first time I heard about ree walking tours, so I decided to take one. Vasco, the guide, speaks a very good English, he's knowledgable, smiley and superfriendly. The best way to know the city and to fall in love with Bulgaria. Strongly recommended!
I've done a few walking tours now and this one is one of the best that I've attended.. It's rather professional, quirky and interesting. I found that the demographic varied a fair bit which was nice to see, generally it's people in their 20's but it was good seeing older people get out and checking it out too.
Really good value people!
I really like this Free Tour stuff. I really enjoyed the one in Copenhagen 2 months ago, and of course the last one 16.11.2014 in Sofia.
Daniel is a very friendly and smart guide and accompanied and entertained us for 2.5 hours tour in a cold Sofia day.
Nothing much to see in Sofia, compared to other European capitals, however without this tour, you would be passing by a statue or a historical place, without knowing the history.
I recommend for those who think they will be bored in Sofia.
Although it is a free tour, you are expected to give a few Levs for the guide's effort.
You must not runaway at the end of the tour like the Erasmus kids.
Just a few Euros will not make you poorer! Please respect the service.
Blagadoria Daniel and Sofia Free Tour.
