About Good Living
Good Living provides boutique accommodation and guided experiences in Bucharest. Our passionate guides will help you make sense of the city once called "the Little Paris". Bucharest is a vibrant mix of Parisian architecture, Berlin-style nightlife, Istanbul-like street-food, and other influences from the Balkans. We love getting lost in the city, exploring its streets, buildings, historic events and personal stories of its residents, and trying to make sense of everything for you. Our tours explore the city from different perspectives, and are built as immersive stories, rather than dry statistics or checklists of monuments. Choose the tour that best fits your interest: > Communist tour > Jewish tour > How Bucharest became the Little Paris > Churches, religion & superstition

An absolutely superb tour! Our whole group thoroughly enjoyed it. Andreea, our guide, delivered a well researched and very informative tour. Some of our group are new to Bucharest, and were fascinated by the history of Communism in the city, and even those who had lived here for several years learned something new, and visited new places. I would thoroughly recommend it to others, and will be looking to book another tour in the future!

Interesting tour, with a very rich history about the Jewish community in Romania/Bucharest that almost seems eager to be discovered. I absolutely recommend it, as it will make you look at the city and its streets with a different and more emphatic perspective. A big thank you to Cristina for the vivid and detailed stories that took us back in time for a day.

We had a very interesting tour with Andreea, 3 hours full of information about the communist time, architecture, places and background. very good english, also good to unterstand. A lot of anecdotes of people and places. if you have the time and want to unterstand more about how Bucharest was and partly still is, then I highly recommend this tour. Bucharest has a huge history. You will see ruins and palaces and much more.

This is the part that I enjoyed most during my stay in Bucharest. Andreea is a very friendly, knowledgeable guide and she will take you to places not possible to discover by yourself. Even if you have only a couple of days available, this tour will give you all you need to know of the city.
