Thank you Kathy for the most enjoyable tour of beautiful Sofia! Over two hours we learnt about thousands of years of the history of the city, and were shown the "layers" of Sofia too which was fascinating. Kathy had the group captivated the entire time and she spoke very well with humor and even a play for us to follow... More

This is the first thing to do when arriving in Sofia. I totally recommend it! The guides are awesome, at least was ours: Annie. She guided us through the city explaining a lot of parts of history and culture... After the tour we felt much more excited about the city and really looking forward to learn more and go back...

Best tour in Sofia! The guides are super enthusiastic and kind - Stoyan kept the group interested and energized throughout the 2h tour in spite of the cold! He was also extremely friendly, funny and open to answer questions and recommend places/restaurants to visit. The FST is a must-see in Sofia

Svetla was a great guide, friendly, funny and open for questions. The tour is really good to do on the first day, because it doesn't cover much aside from the usual route.

I've been on the Free Sofia Tour and the guide was very helpful. It was quite entertaining even though I'm born and raised in Sofia! It's a nice tour and if you are into this type of sightseeing - you should definitely try it.
