Our tour guide was Mihaela and she was awesome! She had good information about the city, made the whole thing interactive by asking us questions and rewarding the ones who got the question correct with candy.. sadly I didn't get any :( Anyway I would definitely recommend doing the tour, but dress warm in winter cause it's a 2:30 long...

We took advantage of the free tour upon arrival to Bucharest. It was spur of the moment deal and we were not disappointed. Our guide, Anka, was entertaining and took us on a tour of history. Prior to the tour I was ignorant of Wallachia. We were surprised that the tour ended in University Square (adjacent to our hotel)... and... More

As a tour guide by myself I always have a problem with attending tours - it is hard not to judge them from a guide's point of view. This time I had no problems with it! The Tour was well paced, interesting and humorous, and Livia the guide did a great job :) keep going!

One of the best tours I've ever been on anywhere. Livia was an amazing guide - she was knowledgeable and made the entire tour very lively and interesting, and gave us a real and personal perspective about the recent history of the country. She also brought maps and posters along to illustrate what historical moments were like. Definitely worth your... More

The tour was great - manly because of our guide Tudor. He was funny, smart, had good recommendations and gave insights about the communism regime and everyday life in Romania. Highly recommended.
