A must do in Sofia ! Philip is an amazing guide and a great person, he even dropped us at the airport as our flight was just after the tour! We learned so much, not only about Sofia and Bulgaria during the Soviet era but also got a great introduction on Bulgaria’s history and culture. Thanks !

an alternative tour!

This tour was different from the others but equally interesting. The vtravel guide was professional and very prepared. He took us around the city and even outside to the beautiful parks where works from the time of communism were present. We had a problem with the car and he immediately proceeded to find a solution to the problem. While we were taking a tour of a museum he went back and made a change of car to make sure the tour ended, so let's say we were also lucky, because we got to get in two different cars !! An interesting tour that I recommend. :)
