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.

We really liked the tour. Despote the late houd our tour guide was very energetic and we had great time walking with him around the city. For sure the best way to explore the city/country you don't know anything about.

Wonderful to see young Bulgarian guides showing their city off so proudly and to see the principles of marketing being used to their optimum. Absolutely exemplary in every way!

Our tour guide was great! He was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He made sure that he talked to all the tourists on a one to one basis whilst walking from one place of interest to the next. He took his time at the end of the tour to answer any questions you had and give... More
