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

Brilliant introduction to the history and central attractions in bucharest. The tour guide Razvan was able to paint a very interesting picture of the development of Romania particularly post the 1989 revolution showing some of the old and new architecture. Recommendations on what and where to eat were very useful. The tour is a must at the start of your... More

I joined the guided tour on my first day in Bucharest and it started off an amazing time in this beautiful city. Simona was our guide and she is knowledgeable, articulate and most importantly passionate about her city. I really enjoyed her Romanian humour. I learnt so much about the city and more about the Romanian culture. I really really... More

This trip is a must before you do anything else. It gives you a feel for the city and its past struggles. The guides are students and they recommend places to eat and see. There is no charge for this tour but you can give your guide what ever you want. Our tour guide gave us an interesting and personal... More

Even with these freezing temperatures that we were facing it was totally worth it. in the middle of the tour we even took a coffee and tea break to warm up everyone. I dont remember the cafes name but they made us soy-hot chocolate on request!! 100% recommend! bring warm shoes though ;)

I took this tour out of curiosity, on a relaxed Saturday morning, one of the few weekends I was in town. Booked the whole thing very quickly, directly from my phone a few days before and had 2 friends joining me for the adventure. The funny part was that besides the guide, we were the only 3 speaking Romanians out... More
