A comprehensive Sofia Sightseeing Tour for every taste

“Grows, but never ages” is the motto of Sofia – one of Europe’s oldest cities and capital of Bulgaria. That is not surprising, given its ancient history dating back some seven millennia.

Our captivating and informative private Sofia city tour through the heart of the city follows its turbulent and colorful history. We go all the way back to Sofia’s Roman origin and discuss our Ottoman heritage. Moreover, we focus extensively on rather recent events and how they have shaped Sofia’s modern outlook. Along the way, we encounter some of Sofia’s imposing buildings and monuments and learn more about their place in Bulgarian history.

This Sofia sightseeing tour is the perfect way for guests to develop a general feel of the city, helping you get to know it better near the start of your visit. However, if you are a history buff and are interested in a more in-depth look at Sofia’s origins, you might want to check out our Sofia’s Roman Past tour. If you have any questions about this Sofia walking tour, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Otherwise, keep scrolling to find more details below.

I had a tour around Sofia with Manuela.

She was a fantastic tour guide and gave me an insight into the capital city. I was fascinated with the information that Manuela told me about the city and Bulgaria in general. Manuela clearly has a passion for Sofia, and it was great to see that enthusiasm!

It was also interesting hearing the stories that she had to tell about the city, from her own experience too!

I wish the tour was longer, as I wanted to find out more about Sofia. But, I can always return there one day.

Thank you for the tour, Manuela!

I moved from Skopje in Macedonia and asked for half a day tour. Guide was very kind, explanation was easy to understand, I could take sightseeing thoroughly. More than anything, I was thankful for explaining with a simple sentence for me who is not good at English. The sightseeing in Sofia remained in the heart very much. Thank you very much!

Great for business guests!!
“We had an important visit from some of our collegues in Europe this week and they were on their first fam trip to Sofia. It was vital for us to make a great first impression for Sofia as a destination and Manuela definitely exceeded our expectations! She was so knowledgable, she could answer every question of our curious guests and just few hours later they knew so much about Sofia and they were greatly impressed by the city! We would most definitely recommend Manuela as a tour guide for guests on a business level!”
