We were a group of 10 people, who wanted to learn more about Sofia and its history. The guided tour really suited our needs and exceeded our expectations. We visited most of the famous and important places in the heart of Sofia, balancing between interesting facts and stories about the buildings and beautiful places. The guide Vassil was really friendly, knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. We would definitely recommend it.
