We have done many walking tours in other European cities and there have been some great ones and some disappointing ones - this one is one of the better ones. Our guide was extremely informative, spoke excellent English and was very forthcoming with interesting answers when we asked him questions about Romania. I asked him a question about Nadia Comaneci... More

It takes you to the most important sites of Bucharest and some that are not so beaten. Some interesting stories about the places and the city. Friendly and helpful staff. Not one of the best in Europe but worth going.

Had a great walking tour of Bucharest, which was a fab way of orientating myself for exploring solo later on. A good introduction to a fascinating place and history of events.

Thank you for attending the tour and for the nice words. Indeed one of the main things we want to deliver with the tour is a general introduction to the city so that you could go deeper on your own, depending on your area of interest. Again, thank you. Best Regards, Mihai More

This was one of the first thing I did on moving to Bucharest. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable with excellent English and I enjoyed the tour a lot. When family and friends visit I am now able to give my own walking tour recycling all the information I got my first time around. Recommended for all.

The tour is Free (with tips welcomed). I found this tour on Trip Advisor's recommendations and glad I did. I was in Bucharest right before Christmas, and believe I took tour the day before the holiday. There were not many attendee's just me and my young daughter and another young man. Mihai gave his very informative tour. It covered various... More

Thank you for the wonderful review, Sharing our personal experience and encouraging the guides to alter the "must say" stuff is something we believe in very much. That is the main way of ensuring a discourse led by passion and not a talking guide-book as you might be unlucky to find elsewhere. It's always a happy moment when children join... More

Was full of some great information but had a bit of trouble hearing the guide at times and would have been nice to take a break in the middle. Overall friendly guy and fun tour.

Dear James, Thank you very much for attending one of our Free Walking Tours. Your feedback is really valuable as we always try to improve. It would help a lot if you would mention in a PM the day when you joined the tour. Thanks again! See you next time, Mihai More

Coming to a new city it's much more interesting to walk through knowing history of the city, main places and hidden gems. And this tour helps you perfectly in that. Alex, the guide, was as much detailed as it is possible within 2,5 hours. So thanks a lot and definitely worth attending.

We got Mihaela and she was faaaantastic! She cracked jokes that were actually funny along the way and was very well informed of her city's past and present state. Gave good recommendations on good places to eat and not once did she bore me during the 2hour tour. Meeting point was at the clock tower at the Piata Unirii.
