Excursions and day trips from Sofia

Whether you're looking for a day trip from Sofia or a week-long getaway, Bulgaria has plenty to offer. From its seven mountain ranges to its unique cultural heritage, this small country has something to offer everyone.

There are plenty of places to visit in Bulgaria, but most travellers head straight to its Black Sea Coast resorts. While it's certainly possible to see Bulgaria's major attractions on your own, you'll get much more out of your travels if you join a guided tour.


The most popular day trip from Sofia is visiting Vitosha Mountain, one of the country's most recognizable landmarks. It's a relatively short trip, but you'll get to enjoy the natural scenery and take in the views of the capital.

The Rila Monastery is another popular destination for travelers. It's a working monastery, and the church has amazing frescoes. It's also a UNESCO World Heritage site. You can take a tour or a live-guided tour to get the most out of your visit.


The Krushuna Waterfalls are a must-see if you're visiting Bulgaria. These cascading falls are a great way to unwind and soak in the local scenery. The falls are about 185 meters from Sofia, and you can explore the falls on two different trails. The red trail is the more impressive of the two, and takes about an hour to explore. You can combine it with a visit to Devetashka Cave, which is about 20 km away.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.

Zeinepp led us on a tour around Marrakesh. We could not have asked for a more wonderful tour. She was kind, welcoming, and knowledgeable about the area, including mosques, bazaars, and the best places to eat and drink.

Our Wine and Tapas trip's host, Sebastian, is a friendly and entertaining guy. He is an excellent local who knows where to find the best tapas or pinchos (this time).

Margo was incredibly kind and well informed about Madrid's past. On our first day in Madrid, Margo made us feel incredibly at ease and welcomed, she provided us some helpful advice on where to shop and go to get a local experience.
