I am glad I joined this tour since I was given an indepth information of the important sights in Sofia. It was just two hours but you get to walk around the city and enjoy the sight and sound of Sofia. I would encourage any visitor to this city to start with this tour and maybe join the other tours...

When you go to Sofia it can be hard to know where to start, this tour gives you an excellent overview of the key areas and monuments with some background information on them and stories. It is a great place to start and is a must for anyone arriving in Sofia.

Had a great two hours wandering around Sofia with Nikola as our guide. Informative, clear English, with a bit of fun interjected too. Well recommended as an introduction to the city.
