We have been really impressed with this tour, our third in Sofia. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and humourous. Unfortunately it is only on the weekends. Also note, it starts in front on the Starbucks across from the Palace of Culture.

Interesting tour about the story of communism in Bulgaria with a super friendly tour guide who spoke in perfect English. We even got to drive around in a Trabant a little bit! Made me feel like I'm 4 years old again :)
