We went to some places I guarantee we would not have been able to find on our own. The event was well organized and it was interesting to see all the different kinds of people who came out. I really enjoyed chatting with some of the attendees and organizers while walking from bar to bar. My only critique (which is more personal than against the experience) was that everywhere we went was quite loud and crowded. We were hoping to find local pubs to sit and converse with new people. However everywhere we went was too loud to meet new people. We aren't big club people so this is probably more against us than them. We also had a very large group who seemed to enjoy the lively atmosphere.

This was a great tour. I went in the morning and was the only person. Guess it was a slow day, though Sofia also isn’t a very touristy city. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered any questions I had. He also was curious to know if there were any subject in particular that I wanted him to touch on. He explained things in a way that was interesting and easy to understand without sounding boring. It was a lot of fun riding in the trabant and seeing the city in this sort of way. As someone who didn’t know much about the communist era, once the tour was done I felt like I could teach a class about it. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to see Sofia in a different way and learn about Bulgaria’s past! It really helped me understand why certain things in Sofia are the way they are.

Really enjoyed our tour with Danny. Was great to hear about Bulgaria and Sofia during the communist era and with a few more personal anecdotes thrown in. It was a fun bonus to have a short trip in the Trabi too! It was a freezing cold day but well worth the time :) (Tour is a pretty flat walk but some steps so not easily accessible for wheelchairs and strollers - although maybe the guides have ways around it. Not so much walking as other tours we have done in other cities.)

Great tour, and the unique part was opportunity to ride in a trabant which was really cool. My guide Ivo was very knowledgeable and shared authentic stories of communist times. Must-do in Sofia!!

The communist Trabi tour was a great experience. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and made the tour both informative and entertaining. The tour was free with the option of a tip at the end. Start and finish locations were central and easy to navigate. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone exploring Sofia. It is definitely worth it!
