“Great introduction to this City”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Mihai and his team pull out all the stops to give you an introduction to this vibrant city and, in particular to share their experiences of the changes that have occurred here over the last 25 years. The tour takes a few hours but is at a comfortable pace. He also runs a cycle tour which is a great way to see the city. Well worth the time and well worth a generous tip as the walking tour is free.

“Best way to visit Bucharest”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We took the tour on June 9th, with Andrei as a guide. It was very interesting to visit the city this way, full of anecdotes and stories we would have never known without this.

I would strongly recommend the tour to anyone visiting Bucharest, specially helpful on the first day in the city to get a general impression of the city and its history, ask any questions / recommendations / etc... to the guide and then visit more thoroughly any museums, churches, palaces, etc.. you have liked the most during this visit.

And don't forget to tip the guides, even if they forget or don't want to ask for tips ;)

“You never know everything there is to know about your own city”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

I strongly recommend this tour to Romanians and Bucharest-born people as well.
Sometimes living in the city makes you oblivious to all its history and transformations, most people get into the <<work - go to bars/clubs>> routine.
Even if I knew most of the historic facts and trivia (being a Bucharest history and architecture buff myself), it still proved a useful, learning experience.
