The tour was very well organised. Simona, our guide, was very friendly and funny and was giving candies to anyone who would pay attention and answer any question about city's history and peculiarity (fun and light questions :) ). The tour took two hours, but it felt very relaxing and the pace was very good, not tiring or boring at... More

It was my first organized city tour like that and I really enjoyed it. Our today guide, Emi, was very well prepared it was obvious that she is really "in love" with Brasov. Tour was very exiting, games were funny. It's a must when you are here!

This is for sure the best way to get to known this city. Our guide, Simona, was and expert in history (not just the town but Romania in general as well). Plus, she gave away lollipops for people who could answer some fun facts questions :) The tour is quite long (2-3 hours) because you get to see many things.... More

We heard about free walking tours in other countries and from people who enjoyed the experience so we gave it a go since we were staying right in front of the meeting place piata sfatului. Simone was there with the ubiquitous orange umbrella waiting for anyone to show up which was us two and another tourist from Ireland in this... More

If you are in Brasov, do this tour. If you are on the fence about visiting Brasov, pull the trigger, and take this tour while you are there. I just got done writing a review about a paid tour I took in another location, and Carmen's tour completely eclipsed it. This was a wonderful tour. Carmen took us through the... More
