Self-Guided Tours in Bulgaria
What is a self-guided tour?
In case you are still wondering how is it possible to be by yourself and “guided” at the same time, we have one very short and simple explanation for you.
A self-guided tour is one where the traveler has a route, information, and some amenities arranged, but is responsible from getting between point A and B each day on their own. Self-guided tours do not include the support of a hired guide, although sometimes self-guided tour providers can help with accommodation, luggage transfers, maps and pointers for navigation.
So in other words a self-guided tour is the perfect vacation for the independent couple or group of friends & family looking to take advantage of the ultimate freedom in travel.
The “Get Self-Guided” idea and team
Every time we visit a new city we are looking for the perfect balance between the charm of wandering around town freely and the pragmatic benefits of knowing where you’re heading to next. Sometimes you just can’t join the guided tours (timing, organisation, etc.) or you just prefer to explore on your own. Inspired by the quest to find the perfect balance between being guided and being independent, we created “Get Self-Guided”.
“Get Self-Guided” is an online platform for self-guided tours in Bulgaria, designed for those of you who are curious and brave enough to explore on their own, offering an easy and fun way to get your way around while remaining independent and flexible.
We, the team behind “Get Self-Guided” are city and mountain guides, event and marketing professionals, but above all we are a bunch of enthusiastic travelers. From Chile to Morocco and from Florida to Thailand, we have always been passionate about exploring the world and embarking on all kinds of adventures.
And we are more than eager to share with you everything we know about travel, history, culture, events, and hospitality in Sofia and Bulgaria!
Along with the very places that defined the historical, cultural background and development of our country, we want to share with you the hidden gems that we, the locals love and are proud of!
How does it work?
Apart from navigation and trackers for each point you are visiting, your self-guided tour will encompass both popular touristic information and little known details that will make your experience thorough and real.
Where do locals eat breakfast on their way to work? What’s the story behind the beautiful buildings in the city center? Who is that guy on the horse in front of the parliament and why do Bulgarians say “knock on wood”?
“Get Self-Guided” will answer those and many more questions about Sofia and Bulgaria.
