Yes, it's really free! Alex(andra) was wonderful. We did this on the second day of our three-day weekend and wished we'd started with it on our first day instead. Do yourself a favor and take the time - get out early if necessary - to start your visit to Sofia here unless you really know what's going on. As Alex... More

It was a really cold night (maybe -10°C in the end) in January, and walking thru Sofia's streets was a challenge because of many slippery patches of ice. It looked like an absolutely crazy idea to join a walking tour. What awaited me was a great experience, a two-hour walk in downtown Sofia with Alex. She is a captivating narrator... More

We arrived in Sofia on Friday night and didn't know much of what to do, so decided a walking tour would be ideal on our first morning to get to know the city. Our guide, Victoria, was very informative and made the tour fun. It was a very relaxed tour that was informal yet very informative and Victoria was very... More

I did the Free Sofia Tour on a bitterly cold Monday in January, because most museums are closed that day. It was great! We were shown the most important sites in Sofia and got a lot of information about the city. The tour couldn't be better: Svetla was an excellent, cheerful and very committed guide. She also spoke us about... More

If you visit Sofia make sure you take part in one of these tours! We did the free city tour and I can not recommend it enough. Our guide 'Alice in Wonderland' was fantastic. She had a lot of knowledge and she made the tour interactive with all guests. She asked questions and gave sweets very every correct answer. My... More

I think this organization is great. We did three of the 365 tours (Free Sofia, Free Plovdiv, and Communist tour.) Dimiter was our guide for this one, and he was funny, informational, and interactive. He was available for questions as we walked and clearly he knew so much more than he could possibly put in a tour! We and our... More

really great sightseeing tour with Vicki on 1st January 2017 at 11 am in front of the palace of justice. First she introduced herself and then she talked about the ancient time of Sofia till the present day. The tour lasted 2.5 hours; it was worth walking in the city with Vicki although it was really cold and cloudy. She... More
