David was a wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable on the subject and gave a great insight into the Communist era in Romania. This tour should be included as a 'must do' when visiting Bucharest.

I recommend the tour to anyone who wants to get a quick overview of the communism in Romania. It helps a lot to a beginner like myself. We visited parts of the city where traces of communism are.
