Alina is a great guide. She knows the material and is enthusiastic about it. She's also a very friendly and pleasant person, with a good sense of humor, so that it is very enjoyable to spend time with her. Definitely recommended for anyone with an interest in Romania's Jewish community, past and present.

We had several private tours with Alina of Wheninbucharest.com tour group. Alina and Benjamin gave us a 3 hours orientation session of Bucharest and Romania before all our tours. It was extremely informative and useful, their in depth knowledge of the country and city is very valuable to us as first timer. Benjamin has in depth knowledge of wine, wine making and all the wine regions in Romania, he gave us recommendations of different types of wine from different regions which turns out to be excellent choice of wine. Alina gave us a run down of all the dos and don’ts and she was our guide to Contanta, she is a highly professional tour guide, direct us to all the great eating places in Bucharest and the rest of the country. She is a very considerate person. Sever was our guide to 2 tours - the best of Bucharest tour and the Hidden Bucharest tour. We totally enjoyed our time with him. We were able to see the beautiful architecture, enjoyed food at the local market, had lunch at a local restaurant and learned about the history and culture of the city and the country. Alina, Benjamin and Sever were extremely professional and knowledgeable, totally enjoyed our tours with them. Thank you Alina, Benjamin and Sever for the wonderful time in Romania.

Alina is incredibly knowledgeable and is able to create an incredibly well-planned experience and can be flexible. She is super personable and able to give the perfect insight into Romanian culture and history with a balance of fun. No topic is off limits for discussion, and she is a great listener. I would recommend Alina and when I go back to Bucharest, I'm definitely getting in touch.
