A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour with Philip was perfect! He met us exactly at the prescribed time, driving a nice clean Toyota minivan. He took us to a lot of great sights in Sofia, providing an abundance of historical information as we toured. Had a nice lunch at a great restaurant he selected. We enjoyed his company. We have taken many tours in many countries, but he stands out among the best we have experienced. Thanks Philip for a great time in Sofia!
