Our knowledgable guides will share with you interesting stories related to what we do here in a different way. You will be able to taste typical Bulgarian breakfast food, learn the steps of our national dance, master your skills in Cyrillic and most importantly have a lot of fun!

If you have the Sofia City tour, you need not pay. If you like, you give a tip. If you take the culture tour (I think it is not the best) you pay cash on the beginning.
