Free tours by locals in European cities!

Free Sofia Tour

Residents of some of the most popular cities in the world are happy to share their city with you. But they want it represented correctly of course! So Locals really are giving you their all in introducing their city to its visitors.

We’re introducing United Europe Free tours, which is a network of the best free walking tours throughout Europe. Their concept: “You get a great tour, and you decide ‘if’ and ‘how much’ you want to tip. No-hassle, no-pressure.”

A few of our Spotted by Locals Sofia Spotters initiated the Free Sofia Tour. We joined their tour last year when we were in Sofia, and were impressed by the enthusiasm, quality and professionalism.

United Europe Free Tours was launched recently, so the various organizations offering free walking tours could exchange information and tips.

Based on the notion that when regular tour-guides get paid regardless of their performance, they might not deliver a top quality tour, these free walking tours are purely based on the local’s love for his or her city and the interest in sharing knowledge with visitors.

“United Europe Free Tour guides do not get paid for their work and are very much aware of the fact that if they do not provide an exceptionally good tour, they get no tips. As a result, free tours promise to be interesting, entertaining, professional and fun.
Its a win-win situation for all.”

  1. “The best way to know a city is having a friend who live there” This friend will help you to organize your trip before you arrive, will give you advise about accommodation, restaurants and attractions to see, will give you the best Local tips to make the most of your time in Barcelona. Once you are there your friend will take you around to show you the best hidden spots of the city… It doesn’t sound like the perfect way to discover and experience a city?

    We want to be your friend! Have A Local Friend in Barcelona!
