Best Tour Ever!

This tour is just for you! The guide will take you/your party to see the best sights of Sofia and answer any questions you may have about the culture, history, art, etc about anything you see! I have some mobility issues, so she had no problem stopping to sit for a while a couple times either. She even took pictures of me at some of our stops! It was a fantastic tour and I highly recommend it! You might even make a friend!

Sorry but too slow , did not see as much as expected

Far too slow , was expecting to see much more around Sofia, what she showed me in 2 1/2 hours could have been done in 40 minutes, very expensive for what I got , day before did full day tour out of town for half the price and Tour was made more interesting and fun
