A very interesting and enjoyable tour. Our guide, Nikola, was friendly, enthusiastic, humourous and informative. I would recommend any visitor to Sofia make this their first activity, we planned the remainder of our stay based on information gleaned on the tour.

Martin was our guide. Given the lack of any museums and precious few remaining artefacts and monuments, he did a fabulous job of talking us around the history of communism and how it affected the people of Bulgaria before, during and after 1989.

I'm local and I visited the tour with some Spanish friends. It's quite interesting and useful. The guide - Mihaela was amazing during the whole time. The Sofia Free tour is definitely a 'must' when in Sofia.

The alternative tour connects very interesting locations in Sofia. We had a lot of fun doing the game. The alternative tour is a great extension after the Free Sofia Tour (Thank you, Nikola). The debriefing at the end is the perfect and competent closure to...More

A pleasant walking tour through Sofia with emphasis on the city's socialist past. The tour guide pointed out that while many Bulgarian's look back at the time of socialism with great disdain, others romanticize about how good their lives were under "socialism". Halfway through the...More
