We are a small group of local guides that want to share what we love about Sofia.
Ivo was our guide; Danny our chauffeur; both were informative and amusing. Ivo conducted the walk in a leisurely fashion, concentrating his delivery on Bulgaria’s Communist past. Yet, in response to the numerous questions he encouraged from his audience, Ivo veered off script quite regularly to relate how the era of Socialist domination still impacts contemporary Bulgarian life and society, some 30 years on. Overall, the story he had to tell was a compelling one, and relayed in perfect English. The tour concluded with a short ride in a Trabant, with Danny at the wheel, an experience that left me with the impression that its simple, utilitarian design was more ingenious than my school history books had led me to believe. In short, a worthwhile tour and a pleasant way to spend an autumnal morning in Sofia. Thank you.
Great tour. We met Dany and Ivo. Dany gave us a history of the Trabi and then each couple had a ride around the block. Dany had to go to a christening so Ivo took over the tour.
Marvellous guide. We learned so much about communism in the dark days until the 1990s. Finished at 1pm. Very happy, the best walk we did in Sofia
Dany was a great guide! I highly recommend to do the Balkan Bites Food Tour. Good food, nice places, detailed explanations!
