Dino was very engaging and taught us a lot about the effectsf that the various governments had on today's Bulgaria. The tour was 3 hours long and the pace was a nice stroll. Dino talked about the experiences of his grandparents, parents and his own which made it very real. Thanks Dino, that was fun!

Cracking tour of a touch expensive at 20Lev. Very informative but do be aware you are out on your feet for a good 3 hours! Dino was an engaging guide and gave an interesting feel for the conflicts and contrasts between communist/capitalist Bulgaria.

It was a remarkable experience with our guide Dimitar showing us historical sights and achievements of "Ever growing but never aging Sofia". Such kind of volunteer work is very admirable and entertaining. Everybody can be attracted by knowledge and fluent English. Thank you, Dimitar and "365 Association". Maria

I would very highly recommend this tour! My husband, young daughter, and I took the tour on our first full day in Sofia to orient us to the city, and it was the perfect way to kick off our visit. Our guide, Stanislav, expertly managed a very large group (~40+ people) from an impressively wide variety of countries. He spoke excellent English and projected his voice very well. The tour pace was just right, as we never felt rushed but also never became bored. Stanislav provided ample historical context for the tour but did so in a humorous, non-overwhelming way. He shared stories and anecdotes that made the whole experience more engaging (e.g., regarding the guard who twice saved King Boris III, the controversy surrounding the Sveta Sofia statue, and the Disneyesque nature of Sofia’s department store in the Communist era). Stanislav was also very accessible to tour participants, answering all questions patiently, knowledgeably, and enthusiastically. This was an absolutely worthwhile, enjoyable way to spend two hours in Sofia!

The content of the tour was fantastic with amazing sights. We got a cool overview of what Sofia is about and set us up perfectly for some exploration on our own. The tour guide, Tommy, was the best guide I've ever had on a walking tour. Period. His enthusiasm kept everyone excited and curious about the city and the culture. Overall great experience.
