Free tours are a fantastic way to get a feel for the lay out and history of places you visit. Kinga, our guide had fantastic knowledge and was really funny with it. She really increased our knowledge of Brasov and made all the various bits of history link up.

Our tour guide was Kinga (spelling may be off) who did an excellent job showing us around and giving us all sorts of interesting information. She kept us entertained and I would recommend the tour to anyone interested in visiting Brasov.

And I mean the date with Brasov. After that you'd really want a second date and maybe the third. And then - who knows... Of cause you can read in a travel guide and look in the map and walk by yourself. But better not... After trying in a couple of other European cities now I'm definitely looking for these... More

Walking tours can be too long, or too short, at around 2 hours this was just right. Easy paced mostly on the level, so fine for those who can not deal with steep climbs. Our guide was Simona, who was excellent. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about her city, and with perfect English, always a plus for those of us who... More

She was very professional, very well prepared and enthusiastic. The tour was very interactive. She used also maps to show us where we were. Everyone was very... More

We loved this walking tour for the enthusiasm and knowledge of our lovely guide who did such an excellent job. The pace was neither too rushed nor too slow and her lollypops brought a smile to everyone's face. HIGHLY recommended for the independent traveller regardless of budget.

I had already spent a few days in Brasov before doing the walking tour but I wanted to get the knowledge of the area from a local. It was a great tour and I learnt alot. The guide was very enthusiastic and clearly loved what she does. Would recommend doing this when visiting Brasov.

Our third free walking tour in eastern Europe; excellent. İnka was our guide. She was so enthusiastic, energetic, & knowledgeable. I certainly learned a lot. Though there was some rain & thunder, our spirits were not dampened as we continued hiking to the White Tower.
