Marius was a fantastic guide - knowledgable, detailed and has a somewhat surprising dry sense of humour. On the contrary, the tour was not dry at all. It was informative but told in a compelling, story-telling manner. The whole tour was clearly well planned, starting with how communism took hold in Romania and ending with the 1989 revolution. Needless to say, we had a wonderful time.

Marius was an absolutely brilliant guide - practically a historian + storyteller all put together into one. Felt like history was unfolding before my very eyes, I will never be able to look at the architecture and landmarks of Bucharest the same. I was the only one on the tour (off-peak season for tourism) and despite the -2deg Celsius winter snow, Marius was no less professional/thorough in his guiding. A must do experience!

We took the tour with Marius, he was an excellent guide. We learned everything we needed to know about the history of communism in this city, while being able to walk around and see the remains and landmarks of an era that shaped the lives of millions. We would recommend this tour to anyone who visits this city and wants to get familiar with its history.

We were in Bucharest for business and stayed some extra days to explore the city. We enjoyed the tour very much. Our guide Marius showed us interesting places and talked with passion regarding the Communist history. Definitely something to consider when you are in Bucharest!

Our tour guide, Claudia, is a PhD in history and was the most able person to bring Romanian rule under Communism to life. The Ceausescu story is both fascinating and terrible at the same time. Most of all, the tour gives very real insight into the roots of Romanian culture today.

Marius was fantastic! He did a tour for me after another tour group I had booked cancelled only 2 days before, which I really appreciated. He even did the tour even though the other people I was travelling weren't able to make it. He had a wealth of knowledge and was very friendly. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is travelling through Bucharest.
