About
Connect to the local culture and visit the best of Bucharest with a private guide! On our walking tour of Bucharest we will visit the main landmarks of the city center and get to know the local story and culture. Providing a good introduction to the history of the Romanian capital, this interactive tour will answer your curiosity to understand how Romanians live nowadays and how they think and feel about their past and future. In a half-day tour we will explore and make sense out of Bucharest's rich heritage: a Balkan flavor due to its Byzantine and Turkish influence, Communist heritage laying beside beautiful French, Romanian and Art Deco architecture and, most importantly, amazing lively atmosphere.

Fantastic tour with great insights
Nov 2020
We took the Best of Bucharest tour with Alina and it was excellent. Alina shared her wealth of knowledge about the city and its history in a way that was informative and interesting - the time flew by! She also followed up with an email of recommendations tailored to our interests - best wine bars and dessert places, recommendations to learn more about Romanian history, several museum suggestions, etc. The pace of the tour was great - it was only afterwards when we had to walk back to our car that I realized how much ground we had covered. Alina has a great personality for a tour guide - smart, interesting, patient, well organized, flexible, with a great sense of humour. She was happy to answer any questions that we had. She also showed us many photos of sites from previous times to supplement her narrative, so you could visualize how things evolved. We recommend her without hesitation.
(We often use Context Travel guides when travelling, but this company is not in Romania. Alina would be among the best of the Context guides, if you are looking for a comparison.)
Thank you for a great Sunday, Alina!

Great shore excursion for Danube cruises
We had the best tour of the week when we booked separately with Best of Bucharest. Sever was our guide and really got us off the beaten tourist track with authentic experiences and honest dialogue. All our other tours on our Balkan cruise had seemed too rehearsed and filtered. Great company.

Outstanding Tour Guide
Sep 2019
Just returned from Bucharest visit with 8 of our friends. Great city but to see it without using Alina as a guide would be a huge mistake. All of us are experienced travelers and have used numerous guides successfully but agree that Alina is the best. She has it all, excellent language, first hand knowledge of her city and country, good sense of humor and very good about communicating with her clients and evaluating their wishes and abilities and designing a specific tour. Recommend her highly.

Sep 2019
I found „When in Bucharest“ via internet and Alina immediately answered my email with an offer for the “Best of Bucharest Tour” and additional interesting information about the city. On the day of our tour we met our guide Lucian at the hotel reception. He was a very friendly guide and it turned out that his German was very fluent as well so spontaneously he did the tour in German which was great for our kids. He showed us the most interesting places but even more interesting were all the stories he had to tell about the city, the people and the history. We had a perfect time, we learned a lot and with a comfortable beer we let the tour end in the old center of Bucharest. Highly recommendable!

Simply Amazing
Jul 2019 • Couples
Alina is professional and personable. Her English is perfect and very easy to understand. She gave me and my wife a personalized tour of Bucharest. She picked us up at the Hotel and explained the plan for the day. I have traveled to over 50 countries and participated in numerous tours, and this one was tops. Because we are in the wine business, we ended the day with Alina at a wine bar sampling Romanian wines. She is prompt in her correspondence and flexible in what you need for a tour. In short, don't hesitate to book with Alina.

Awesome Bucharest Tour.
Jun 2019 • Couples
We were privileged to have a private tour of Bucharest with Alina and her delightful French husband Benjamin. Alina is so knowledgeable and passionate about Bucharest and Romania. She was very prepared but very flexible. She answered endless questions from the Dacian period right through Communism to today. She gave a very good overview of the culture and history of the city. I absolutely give her and "When in Bucharest Tours" our highest recommendation.
