I went to both The Story of Bucharest and Life in Communist Romania tours on the same day, and I really liked the fact that the tours did not overlap in any sense. With the first one, thanks to the fantastic explanations of our guide Mara, we got an idea of the evolution of the city, getting to know its main attractions in their historical context. In the afternoon, from the place where we finished the first tour (Piața Revoluției) I joined Maria, our guide, for the second tour. I really enjoyed hearing about different aspects of how life was in Romania during the communist times while walking around the city. It was very interesting to learn so many new things about București! The guide was very nice, talking with us and always making sure every explanation was clear.
So, I really recommend both tours to anyone who travels to the capital of Romania and wants to really get to know the city.

We took part in Alex’s walking tour today as part of our first day in Bucharest and it did not disappoint! We learnt a lot about the history of Romania, and the various political changes and saw lots of the main sights too!
As well as answering all of our groups questions, Alex gave us lots of recommendations for good food and drink too. Thanks Alex!

We thoroughly enjoyed this most interesting walking tour of Communist Bucharest! Julian (Alex) is a natural storyteller and brought this period of history to life for us. We learned so much about what it was like for Romanians living through these difficult times and why Bucharest is called 'The City of Contrasts'. Julian (Alex) was funny and entertaining as well as poignant and thoughtful when explaining the love/hate relationship some people struggle with even to this day. We were so glad we did not miss this gem of a tour before we headed to the airport! Simply terrific!

We did the story of Bucharest tour with Elena and it was fabulous. We learned a lot about Romania and Bucharest plus Elena shared some of her own experiences to add detail and make it more personal. She is clearly very passionate but also humorous. The tour is long but there are lots of stopping points, many of which included places to sit. I went with someone who didn’t really want to go but said afterwards that they loved it and felt inspired to learn more about Romania. Elena also gave recommendations for places to eat and drink which was helpful too.

This was one of the best walking tours I've ever done. We did the History of Bucharest afternoon tour. Our guide Mara was so knowledgeable, informative and comprehensive in her tour that I left with none of the questions I had about Bucharest and Romania unanswered, and I didn't even have to ask. She covered all the bases and kept us interested and engaged the whole time, without stops taking too long and the time simply flew by. Highly recommend if you are visiting Bucharest to hop on this walking tour!

Our tour guide was Alex and he was absolutely fantastic. We did the story of Bucharest tour. The tour was very interesting and Alex was funny which made the tour informative but not boring. I'd read up on some of the history of Romania before visiting, however he brought things to life and the way he told the information made it easy to understand. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would 100% recommend it.
