The tours run 365 days a year at 11:00 or 18:00. The guides are enthusiastic, knowledgeable, informed and accommodating. Their concept of providing free tours has spread to at least two other cities in Bulgaria - for good reason indeed. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting or living in Sofia. You get a feel for the city and Bulgaria - 2 to 2.5 hours well spent.
Did this on a whim this evening, and I'm really glad I did. Great way for even seasoned visitors to Sofia to learn interesting and fun facts about the city's history. Also a nice way to meet other visitors who hailed from around the globe in the group tonight. Dima our tour guide was personable and knowledgable. This was a highlight of my trip to Sofia. Note that the group was of all ages, not just 20 somethings or backpackers. Grown ups of all ages should check it out.

Petya was an awesome tour guide providing us with a ton of information in a fun and engaging way. If you hesitate to spare 2,5h to hear about historical facts, don't mind. Time flies by even if you are not a history buff. The tour is definitely a must see in Sofia.

Tour was very good,lot of valuable and interested information by our guide,Stefan,who present us Sofia with a sence of humor. I suppose that other guides are similar and good too. I recommended this tour :) .
Our guide found a good balance between humour and history in a lively and interesting tour. He was also able to explain the background to the protests which were very much part of being in Sofia. We saw all the main sights and got an insight into many aspects of Bulgarian culture and history. There was no pressure to tip, but it would have been pretty mean not to. There was an option to go for a drink and meal afterwards which I'm sure would have been enjoyable. It convinced me that these walking tours are an excellent introduction to a new city and our guide Martin did a good job of persuading us that Bulgaria is indeed one of the 'hidden treasures' of Europe.
Le guide Niki, était très disponible et parlait très distinctement en anglais, ce qui facilite la tâche quand bien même notre niveau dans cette langue n'est pas extraordinaire.
La promenade est sympathique, agrémentée de plusieurs arrêts importants dans les endroits les plus marquants de la capitale.
A free tour (although donations are appreciated) which covers the major sites of Sofia and gives interesting information and background. My guide Dima did a great job of explaining the background to the sites we saw. Definitely worth taking advantage of if you're in Sofia.
One of the very few options for guded tour in Sofia. However it is worth to do, guides are young and enthusiastic and in the same time knowlegable. Its fun and value.

The biggest 'bargain' in Sofia. You can learn more in two hours than from any guidebook. The guides speak excellent English and are very knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
