Full description
After hotel pick up, hop into an authentic Soviet jeep, with an open roof for the summer and a hard roof and windows for the winter period. Then, drive around the city center of Sofia to discover the best places of interest, and learn about the history behind them. Hear about the history of Sofia and Bulgaria from Ancient times through to Communism, until modern days. Listen to your guide as he shares private stories about life behind the Iron Curtain. Make the most of stops to take photos of the most impressive sights. After cruising through the city center, head to the suburbs to see the typical communist-era neighborhood and a bell's monument, built in a park outside the city. Finally, head back downtown to see the remaining points of interest included in the tour before being dropped off at your hotel.

Great guide and g great introduction to the sights of Sofia

We had a great Jeep-tour with Phillip, who picked us up at a private address, showed us a lot of the Sofia sights and told us many interesting things of both ancient and recent Bulgarian history. Will definitely recommend this trip to all - even children will find this amusing, (there are seat-bealts for all)
