Mi sono trovato molto bene durante il tour, la guida è stata socievole e ricca di dettagli. Abbiamo avuto modo di assaggiare vari cibi e bevande tipiche di Sofia e sono rimasto molto soddisfatto. Consiglio di non andare a digiuno come ho fatto io ma nemmeno di essere troppo pieni perché diminuirebbe l'apprezzamento del giro. Sicuramente da provare!

Daniela was engaging, funny & energetic, all the qualities in a good tour guide. I really enjoyed her explanations about all the local delicacies we got to try for free.

This was unquestionably one of the best walking tours I’ve been on (and I’ve been on lots!). Dany was an incredible guide, with an amazing personality, great humour, and full of facts, information, and other unexpected anecdotes! The food was so good, the places we were taken to were such good choices. I absolutely recommend this tour to everyone who happens to read my review!! Thank you Dany 🤩
