Guided Sofia Tours
Guided Sofia Tours is a section of three tours of Sofia that seem to be the most interesting to our clientele. Here we provide detailed information about each of them.
This tour will take around two and a half hours. It will give you an overall idea about the rich history and the turbulent development of our capital. You will hear interesting historical facts and at the same time your guide will make you feel the city and fall in love with it. He/she will also give you information about the most popular bars and restaurants in Sofia.
If you have just a day or two in Sofia, this tour is the perfect possibility to get acquainted with the city.
If you have a full day to dedicate to visit Sofia, this is your best option. In this tour we combine a standard tour of Sofia with visit to the Boyana church (UNESCO) and the National Historical Museum.
The Boyana church is located at the foot of Mount Vitosha. It takes around 25 mins from the city center to get there. It is one of the Bulgarian sites acknowledged as a masterpiece of medieval art. The original church dates to the 10th – 11th century. In 1259 the Governor of Sofia added the second part of the church. An unknown painter painted the beautiful frescoes that we still admire today.
The National Historical Museum is located near the Boyana church. It offers a great collection of artifacts of various periods of the Bulgarian history. Here you will see unique Thracian artifacts related to the Thracian civilization.
This tour is our pride and is what makes us different. Few years ago we filled our fleet with a Trabant car, the symbol of the Communism. Our aim was to run a tour that will reveal the communist past of Bulgaria. We did not know how big interest this tour would provoke. It turned out that the visitors were really very interested in this vague period of our development. Most of the customers are extremely surprised to hear the incredible stories that we tell. The tour includes the communist buildings located in the central part combined with the Socialist Art Museum. The ride is by the Trabant car that is itself the highlight of the tour.
