  • What is “free walking tour”?

This is the title given to tours that work on tips (at the end you can give the guide what you feel the tour was worth). In our small company, we are confident enough to let you decide the value of the tour. Keep in mind however that we make our living out of these tours. Every time you attend a tour with us, you are also contributing to the  local businesses, local culture and traditions.

  • How does it work?

You get a free / tip based guided walking tour in the old town of Bansko

*If you miss the Free Tour, check also the options for Private tours.

  • Do I have to make a reservation for the Bansko Free Tour or book in advance?

Basically reservations are not required. Follow the schedule in the site. It is a good idea to book a place so that we are notified for you.

    • How early should I arrive for the tour?

    We will be at the meeting point at least 5 minutes early. We recommend arriving at the spot 5-10 minutes before the meeting. This will also give us some time to quickly get to know each other before the actual start of the walk.

    • What should I wear? What do I need to bring?

    We would recommend that you wear comfortable footwear. Bring along a bottle or flask (there’ll be opportunities to fill it up on the way), especially in the summer. A hat and some sunscreen are also recommended when particularly hot. Don’t forget that this is an outdoor walk, so for winter days dress warmly.

    • We are a bigger group (more than 5 people) that wants to join the Bansko Free Tour. Do we have to notify you in advance?
