Nice tour of the city. Vasil was knowledgeable and arrived on time. However, I was late due to a few things and I admire how he waited for me and still gave me the full tour. I highly recommend. This tour does allow pets so that was good. A friend of mine was able to bring her small dog. Vasil also allowed us to take as many pictures with the car. He was very patient. I would have given the rating a 5 if he was dress in the uniform and if the car was clean. The car on the outside was dirty and needed a good wash. I was expecting to see the guide properly dressed. He wore street clothes with a coat. I was disappointed in this because I wanted the full experience. Thank you.

Great way to explore an unbolstering city.
Authentic Lada car driven by a passionate, critical and flamboyant guide who delivers an honest view of Bulgaria's capital, it's history and their most famous citizens.
Soak in the true spirit of Sofia!

Sofia retro tour was really nice way to explore the city. Its not the first time my friends and I come to Sofia but we are very happy we booked that tour. There were some new amazing places that the driver showed us. He was pretty kind and funny and really considered our preferences. Although the cars were old they were really well maintained. My overall experience was really nice. I would recommend this tour to anyone who would like to experience Sofia with interesting old car and nice company.

Amazing people, the driver was polite all the time. We have visited some quite interesting places around Sofia. The cars look great and are really comfy. The driver was a nice person and helped us orientate around the Bulgaria's beautiful capital Sofia.
I recommend with both hands.

I really liked the tour because it was a true authentic experience, and I really learned a lot of interesting things about Sofia. I saw some great places that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to try something different and really get to know the city and its history.
