Thinking there would be maybe 1 or 2 people, I turned up to a group of around 30 people! The tour guide was really friendly and knew her stuff. Asking questions about the different places on the tour and she was able to provide a good and thorough history. The tour guide was also very approachable and friendly, and just... More

In the snowy/rainy day that we (me and my boyfriend) did the tour, Mihai was the guide. He showed up ahead of the time in Piata Unirii and was very friendly. He showed great knowledge of the buildings, not only the most touristic ones, of the city as a whole and of the early and recent history of Bucharest and... More

They really do mean it when they say, sun or rain - we'll be there!! We took the tour on the coldest day of my stay, but the guide powered through! Plus, he gave us great insight into Bucharest, we learned and laughed a lot! I strongly recommend it!

We went on the walking tour after seeing a poster in our hostel's reception area and it was the best decision of the holiday! We did it the first morning we got there. On a very snowy and very cold December day the guide did all he could to keep our spirits up and keep us interested. It was a... More

We took the tour on the coldest morning, -15 outside, and it was just amazing all thanks to our lovely guide Razwan. He took us through the history of the country and was informative, funny and very useful. His passion for history and art is amazing and we had 3 hours of pure freezing cold fun :-) thank you Razwan!!

There aren't enough adjectives to describe how much we enjoyed this today. Mihai was a great guide, and despite the cold on a chilly December day kept the group spirits up as we toured the old town and followed the story of Romania's past. Throughly recommend that people do this, even if it's just a guide to what there is... More

Great walking tour of the Old Town area. Really enjoyed listening to all the information and stories that Mihaela shared with us. Gave me an insight into both old and new Bucharest. Definitely recommend this tour to everyone. Great way to start a visit to the city.

During 2h30, we've seen a lot of different things and heard a lot of interesting stories. Definitely one of the best walking tours that I've done. I'm sorry that I don't remember the name of the guide, but I know I did the tour the December 16th, so that maybe can help the organization of the tour to find out... More

Checking the website for walking tours of Bucharest the comments for this tour made it seem a 'no brainer', so my husband and I turned up at Unirii Square at 10.30 as advised. The reviews were accurate in every respect. Great guides (Andrei and a young lady whose name I have forgotten but it began with a C) were excellent.... More

I highly recommend taking part in the guided tour. There were 2 guides both had excellent interpersonal skills, chatting with all participants and sharing interesting details about the city in a passionate way with some jokes (funny ones:) Great experience!

Dear Krystyna, Thank you for your appreciation and recommendation - it means a lot to us and it helps other travelers to make their choices for exploring Bucharest. Probably the second guide was a trainee, but we are glad you felt both of them involved and funny, as this is very important for us: to feel good discovering the city... More
