After meeting for this tour we listened to some information about Bulgaria's history and then walked to a local bakery. We stood outside an tasted some local drinks and a pastry. After that we continued to walk around the city and learn about the Bulgarian culture. We visited a doll museum and had the lesson about Cyrillic and then right next door we practiced the dancing. Then went to a tea shop and tasted rose tea and jam. It was very fun to learn about and participate in the local traditions. Also, we finished in time to go back to the meeting place and attend the free walking tour of the sites offered by the same company. It's definitely worth the time and money.

I have already done similar tours in other cities, which cost a multiple and were not so good for a long time. Super perfect mix of sightseeing, culture and culinary delights. Guide Ani guided us in a wonderful way and gave us the very best insight into her hometown Sofia. Food, drinks, admission to a museum etc. are all included - and all this at an unbeatable price.
