Liked the route and areas visited. Guide was good, sorry forgot her name. Only gripe was we ended with a lecture on the revolution which went on a tad too long. I could see from the others that it was stretching attention spans. Recommended for an introduction to Budapest. As Michael Jackson would have you believe :-).

Although it was nice to wonder around the old town there was NO mention of Romania's involvement in World War 2 or how it changed the country's landscape Great mention re the revolution and Vlad the Impaler but honest WW2 is of equal if not more relevant to foreign travers I am saddened by the obvious deliberate omission

We had only one day in Bucharest and taking this tour was an excellent way to see some of the city in such a short time. The passion and enthusiasm of our guide Cami left us wishing we had more time to explore the city and certain we will return one day.

Even If we were a lot, It was very easy to follow the guide, who was very good. His English is perfect, he is funny and his explanations are catchy and interesting. Keep on doing those kind of stuff, it is thanks to people like you that traveling is so nice

It is always better to have a local guide you around the city. Our guide spoke fluent English and was always willing to answer our questions. Recommended!!!

Friends from Spain came to visit Bucharest and this tour was perfect for them. They got much more information then I could give them. The guid ( Tudor) was very good. He gave a full answer to every question. He had his own question for the group and the right answer was rewarded with a Romanian chocolate candy. I recommend... More

Great local guide and a great way to get to know the city before exploring it ourselves. It really was free but well worth a really good tip; Olivia even asked us if we wanted change, bless her!!

we recently did the free walk tour in Bucharest with guide Mihaila. It was an excellent tour-she was very well informed, and lightened things up by asking questions and rewarding correct answers with a sweet. We have done many free tours in different places, have always enjoyed them, and usually find them to be more informative and less scripted than... More

This was a fantastic walking tour of Bucharest and Cami was a particularly good tour guide. At the end of the tour, she told us all about the revolution and I don't think anyone heard it without a tear in their eye.

Thank you for such a wonderful review! I am thrilled you enjoyed the tour because I love every second of it. Being able to share the stories of this country is the best thing ever since not many people know a lot about its past. I'm wishing you all the best and amazing journeys ahead! :) More
