Great tour of an interesting and (in my case), little known city with a very varied history that I would have had no idea about had we not attended!
A 2-2 half hour free tour by very knowledgeable guide, walking around the main sites of Sofia with history to go with it. We didn't have time to go inside the attractions, so we went back the next day. We left a good tip at the end.

Took the tour three nights ago and loved it. A really good time and a fantastic way to learn about Sofia and Bulgaria's history/see things from a local's perspective. Viki was amazing! So knowledgeable, friendly, funny, candid and passionate about sharing all that she knows and helping people to get to know her city/country.
Thanks again for having such a great program. We really enjoyed it and highly recommend it!

It is worth to do a free guided tour in Sofia. I did it myself just to see the quality and can positively say that the guys who do it are already specialists :) They guide you through the ancients remains of Sofia as well as between the modern look and the bonus is that you always can ask them and receive quality answer

This is the way to see Sofia. We had a great tour with Dino and it seems to me that all the guides are as enthusiastic and their level of love for their home city can only be envied!
Thanks Slavian, was nice, interesting and light. Got to know all these trivia facts i hope wont forget. Also good for getting to know other travellers etc
Even though I have lived in Sofia for over a year, I just recently took the Free Sofia Tour when we had a friend visiting and I found it to be very interesting. I learned many interesting facts about the city and saw some sites I di not even know about. Our guide spoke excellent English and he had a very good sense of humor as he told us about particular aspects of Bulgarian culture and history. Even though the tour is 2 hours long, the time goes by quickly and you can leave early if you want. Highly recommended for visitors in the downtown area as it is a great area to walk around.
The Free Sofia Tour is absolutely the BEST free thing to do in Sofia! The tour happens rain or shine, and you don't need to make a reservation - just show up. If you're coming with a larger group (10 or more), they do ask that you send a message so they can ensure that there will be enough guides. I've taken the tour three times and have learned new things each time. The guides are all very energetic and don't mind the endless questions people in the group ask. It's a great way to see the city, learn some history, and get orientated to the central area of the city. The guides also give helpful recommendations on other places to visit, restaurants to try, and activities happening in the city. Highly recommended!
The guides where energetic and positive. You never stopped listening since she was so captivating in her stories. We went to around 8-10 places in a near-by area (took 2 hours) and she told us some stories about the places that we would have never known without this tour. Simply amazing! It costs
nothing, but they appreciate a gift to their future work.

A free walking trip (it's up to you to make a donation at the end) which orientates the major sights and gives you an overview of the city. Very friendly and welcoming guides and it's great to meet a few fellow travellers, especially if, like me, you're on your own. Highly recommended :)
