Small group tour worked well. Anna Mariya went beyond taking us to the restaurant to meet our reservation. She explained a lot about the country and current culture and we appreciated understanding life in Sofia.

Estuvimos solo 4 personas en el tour y la verdad es que eso facilitaba mucho el que pareciera que íbamos andando con una amiga que nos iba contando cosas sobre la ciudad. Anne Mariya sabe mucho sobre Sofía y Bulgaria en general, hace el tour entretenido y te va dando mucha información útil y curiosa. Muy recomendable y tiene un inglés fácil de seguir y entender!
