Given this was my first experience I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was great and interesting. The host was very welcoming and helpful, learning about the history of wine was interesting. The locations were memorable. The winery we stopped at was tranquil, the weather was just perfect. The variety of wines we tasted were delicious which was a mix of white, red and rose. I had such a lovely birthday as it was a treat to myself. The host kindly purchased a wine of my choice as a gift. There were many wines available, but my taste buds I preferred a red and white. I was delighted with the experience and if I was to choose this again I would certainly book this group.

In spite of all the challenges of Covid-19 and the Christmas season The vineyards where closed but with effort and perseverance, Mircea came up with a special and personal wine tasting for me at a local wine bar which features the wine fro the vineyard we were to visit. The afternoon was a blast, the food fantastic, the wine was splendid and new friends where made. Even got the recipe for a Romanian red pepper and eggplant dipping sauce or casserole. Thank you my friend Mircea Robert from Texas

Hey John, Thanks a lot for taking the time to drop your review! Hard times that we're going through right now with the corona story, but we really appreciate the vote of confidence. Let's hope that things will return back to normal soon and we can get another chance to explore through the quaint little streets of Bucharest, discovering even more hidden gems. It's been great meeting you and sharing the communism full story, and hope you've enjoyed exploring Fort 13 Jilava, the former military fort and communist prison. Safe travels ahead and my best reagds, Mircea Local Hosts

First of all, right of the bat it feels like going on a road-trip with your super knowledgeable friend. Mircea was super attentive and took us exactly to the things we wanted to see, and then some. His flexibility and ability to adjust the tour to the person on the go is just amazing! His knowledge of Bucharest and Romania in general is extraordinary. You can tell he's truly passionate about what he does. He had tips pretty much for anything, even things that aren't typically on anyone's vacation list (like where to find the best street art/ruins for photography). I can't think of anyone better to explore the city with. Can't wait to go on another adventure :)

Hii! :) Uaaileei, super cool to find your review, and I'm speechless and really flattered! :) Thanks ever so much for taking the time. I know time is short and reviews are not necessarily easy to drop, but it does help us a lot and for sure it helps our future guests to understand what they're missing out! :)) It was a great day out with you two, and the friendship feeling is valid both ways! :) I'm quite sure we shall catch up soon with a coffee or even a different adventure and I'm looking forward to that! See you again soon, Mircea

I came to Bucharest last year and did not take a tour with Mircea ( a big mistake! ), this time I took 2 tours with Mircea in the last 2 days and i enjoyed them so much! Mircea gave me a different view of the City and I started to like it! Mircea's knowledge of the City and his passion for architecture of Bucharest is amazing, we learned so much and cannot stop admiring the beautiful houses in various different areas, it was a feast of the city culture between 1900 to 1950s! Enjoy this tour and it will make you to see a very different side of Bucharest.

Hi Scarlett, :) Thanks so much for taking the time to drop this fantastic feedback! I'm really flattered by your words, and very happy that we've managed to explore so many areas of the Old Town, and amazing off the beaten path sites. It was a privilege having you both on tour, considering that Vlad is a very experienced and versed local architect! :) Wishing you all the best for the year ahead and looking forward to seeing you guys again soon! Perhaps, we can try to explore Mahallopolis or even our special wine tour? :) Until next time, Mircea
