A brilliant initiative. Interesting walk, wonderful guide. A must do - very highly recommended. The weather was really hot, but it really didn't matter!
We took the tour on June 14th, with Viki as a guide. Her passion for the city was contagious! It was very interesting to visit the city this way, full of anecdotes and stories we would have never known without her.
I would strongly recommend the tour to anyone visiting Sofia, specially helpful on the first day in the city to get a general impression of the city and its history, ask any questions / recommendations / etc... to the guide and then visit more thoroughly any museums, churches, palaces, etc.. you have liked the most during this visit.
Tour was amazing! The guide, Nora had a wealth of knowledge about the city and I immediately felt at home in Sofia after the tour. She even suggested a good place to eat afterwards. The tour can make one want to come back and explore the city and immerse in the culture more. Keep it up!
This is an outstanding walking tour! I came away with a greater understanding of Bulgarian history & appreciation for Sofia. Filip, our guide, was witty, knowledgeable & friendly. He also added interest by offering a popular Bulgarian candy bar to the first person giving the answer to various questions. A fun & informative morning!

My guide was Martin a student of history, tall and very funny guy. He showed us in 2h the major attractions of Sofia, explained a lot of details about some hidden clock, history of Bulgaria, the lions in front of the justice department and how they are called, about the springs and churches in sofia in an entertainement way. He also asked some questions to his followers and offered a candy for the first good answer. I managed to get two candys by the way.
Anyone who visits Sofia for the first time need to go there @18h @ the Lions and follow the tour.
Great tour all around the city of Sofia. The guide Radina knew a lot of great history and facts about the local attractions, and had some great recommendations afterward to eat.
The tour runs you through a lot of beautiful sites, especially the local churches. There's so many layers of history in the city, so you'll be walking up and down a lot, but it's worth it. Going from the ancient Thracian empire through Rome, the Ottomans, and the Communist era, you get to see a multitude of public buildings, churches and outdoor locales with a ton of history. Definitely worth the visit.

“Fantastically interesting free tour” We shared a couple of very enthralling hours with our guide Ina and eight others. It was casual and relaxed walk with Ina filling us with an amazing amount of detail on the sites we visited. Her love of her home was evident and her enthusiasm in expounding her knowledge was captivating. Sofia is a fascinating city and this walk gives a good glimpse of what she has to offer.
I can only recommend this great experience to everybody who will ever visit Sofia :D

“Don't Leave Sofia Without This Tour” This was the first free walking tour I ever did and now I try to find them in every city I go to. The guide really knows a lot about Bulgarian history. I've been on a lot of tours where the guide will just make something up if they don't know the answer to something, so I always find it reassuring when a guide says "I don't know" occasionally. This tour will really enrich your view of the city.
