Review of: Park bike tour
We joined the tour with my sister today. This was by far my most favourite free tour and our guide (Ivo) was by far the best guide ever. The most passionate guide and for sure I learnt so much during our ride. Thank you.

We met the Sofia Green Tour guide, Kaloyan at the National Theatre at 11. He warmly welcomed us, and it was quite nice as he had planned to give the hike in Bulgarian but as our fellow hikers were bilingual, he switched to English. A short taxi ride (10-11 lv) from the city center takes you to Boyana and the base of the trail to the falls. After a brief talk about the hike, we were in the middle of the woods walking on a not too easy but not too challenging trail over roots, minor scrambling over rocks, and through the trees. You could tell Kaloyan knew his trails as we were on a path with few other hikers but when we reached the base of the falls after an hour and a half, it was packed with people. The falls are pretty, rising about 20m and falling are over a rocky face in a clearing of trees. The trip to the falls, in retrospect, seemed like a little less than halfway of the hike as we continued up, on easier ground, to a beautiful stone hut with a grill cooking meat outside and delicious soups from a small cafe on the inside. We ate together and Kaloyan shared his insights into Bulgarian culture next to a big wood carving of a bear before heading back down the mountain. The complete hike took about 4 hours . For families interested, we took our 2 12 year old boys and they loved the hike.…

While planning the trip to Sofia I had read about a free hiking tour to the must see Mountain Vitosha. My friend and I didn't expect much from it, but WOW we come back from that pretty quick! What a great hike in a beautiful scenery with a super nice guide (Ivailo, nickname Ivo) who also told a lot of interesting stories about the history of Sofia and Bulgaria. Because of Covid19 the two of us were the only one for the hike, so we were lucky to have 2 other guides (Sally and Petr) who came along with us on the hike. We could choose from an easy or difficult path, so, cocky as we were we choose the difficult climb for going up and took the easy road to go down. There were a few tricky steep parts but the guides helped us with that. But all that panting for breath and sweat (30 degrees that day) was quickly forgotten when we arrived at the Boyana Waterfall. We had a lovely lunch here (which you have to bring yourself) in a nice cool spot. But that was not all, we later went to the highest point from which you had a fantastic view of Sofia. Then we went via the easy way down (thank God ;-D) where we passed the Boyana Lake. At the end of the hike (we made it!) it was also possible to visit a very old church (Boyana church) where you can admire very special old frescoes. All in all not only a MUST SEE but also a MUST DO! The guides do this on a voluntary basis and they do so it so passionately, so don't forget to give them a nice tip afterwards.…

Review of: Winter Sunset Hike Tour
We had a three hour bike tour in Sofia where our guide Ivo showed around us the main archeological and historic attractions of the city. He also took us to few narrow streets where local restaurants and bars are located. We had a great time and it was fun.

We loved our hike up Vitosha! It rained a lot and was very foggy but it really didn’t matter it was a wonderful experience. Really lovely small group and Jordan was very friendly and talkative. Highly recommend to do something out of the city and this is perfect.
