It was a easy walk throughout the old city area of Bucharest which was very informative. It really gives you an appreciation of the current state of the country and how things have changed and developed in the past 15 to 20 years. Our tour was carried out in the rain, despite this there were still approx 30 followers all... More

when you are not staying in a location for a long time and you want to get the flavor of the city or country the walking tour is an excellent way to gather all of this in a short period of time. the guide was very knowledgeable and the pace was good for everyone in the group

I took the free walking tour of Bucharest and loved it. Romania is a really nice under-rated country and this tour gets to the heart of the capital, throwing facts and historic details at you as you traipse through the Old Town and beyond. My guide was Stefan - it's a must do for any traveller to Bucharest.

Walking tours are always great. The tour itself is a great initiative and the fact that you meet other travelers makes it all the more fun. I’ve been focusing completely on Transsylvania for my stay in Romania, so I was extremely ill-prepared when I arrived to Bucharest. And once the snow storm kicked in, I really didn't feel like going... More

Stefan was our guide for an introductory tour of Bucharest. He was great fun, had funny stores, and the tour was just long enough to give you a sense of Bucharest sites and sounds. We enjoyed so much that we came back another day and took the Communist Tour which was also excellent..

Just the day before doing this tour, I paid 20 lei for a guided tour that was obviously just a heavily rehearsed presentation while walking around, by a guide who made it very clear she had done the tour multiple times already. This was quite the opposite. Our guide Stefan was very enthusiastic, with obviously the standard historical information, but... More

This was a really good intro to Bucharest and its history - and not just the communist era stuff! The guide was excellent!

This was by far the best thing we did in Bucharest. If you are lucky enough to have Mihai as a guide then you will have an informative & humorous tour of this exceptionally fascinating city. Mihai was very knowledgeable & honest. The walk did not seem onerous as there is just so much to take your interest. It is... More
