Hello! My name is Stefan. I was born and grew up in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. It’s where all my tours starts. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Cultural-historical heritage, and master’s degree in Cultural tourism. Recently I also studied master degree in “Urban studies”. Last few years I also spent a lot of my time exploring my country. I’ve found a lot of spectacular places which I’m excited to share with curious travelers. I can honestly say that I know Sofia perfectly. I know all of its hidden beauties that even most of the locals haven’t seen. In my everyday job I’m a tour guide and airport transfers driver and in my days off I love to hang around here. This helps me to explore our country every day! I’m passionate about cycling and prefer to do trips by bike. I drive as well and love hiking and kayaking. So I’m ready to guide you around by any mode of travel.

I can show you here the most interesting, popular and hidden places in our city and tell you stories behind them. We’ll visit sights from antiquity, middle ages, industrialization and Communist period and cycle through the city center and the biggest park as well. If you lredy know main sights of Sofia just tell me where you've been and I'll arrange you a tour with some other interesting sights. Route can be always flexible! You can rent a bike in city center every day for a cheap prise. I can also offer you many cycling tours all around Sofia to - near mountains, lakes and other beautiful places. Please book the tour at least 48 hours earlier!

Stefan took us on a tour of Sofia. He is a knowledgeable guide and will show you places you would not find yourself. The first hour and a half he showed us around the city centre. Then he took us to a in the south of Sofia. All-in all a perfect sunny November Sunday well spent. Thanks Stefan!

We had a great time, touring Sofia with Stefan. A tour made to our wishes, even if we changed our minds very last minute. Definitely recommend him.

Wow, it was a great tour!

Stefan was so nice, and he asked for our opinion almost all the time to make the tour the best for us.

We would definitely recommend him for our friends.

This tour was fantastic. After being in Sofia for several days, I was ready to get out of the city center. Stefan listened to that and put together a route that had us on mountain bike paths through the larger parks and back roads in older neighborhoods with communist apartment buildings. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the city and was comfortable sharing some of his personal opinions and experiences. His English is great and he was easy to understand. We probably biked for around hours. He helped me pick out a really nice bike to rent, and made sure we were going at a pace that was comfortable for me. It was a really enjoyable experience. I highly recommend it.
