First of all, thanks Marius for give us such good and interesting information during the tour
Marius is an enthusiastic guide that will provide you all the necesary to understand the real situation of the city; the past, present and the hopeful future
Even if your english is not the best, he speaks so clearly that it's easy to follow the tour

Esta visita te lleva por lugares fuera de lo que suele visitarse en Bucarest y Marius te proporciona información muy útil de alguien como él que lo conoce de primera mano. El tema de las cartillas de racionamiento, la educación en la escuela, la vigilancia policial... y mucho más que se descubre en esta visita. Animaros!!!

Don't miss this tour!!!

To say I enjoyed this 3 hour walking tour would be an understatement. Marius was refreshingly honest and impressively knowledgeable about the history of Jewish life in Romania. He covered places of interest that I would have struggled to discover on my own and was happy to accommodate me as a solo traveler. 5 stars simply isn't enough to express my satisfaction with the information I gained and my gratitude for Marius' insight and passion for history.

The Jewish Tour of Bucharest with Marius was one of the highlights of my visit to Romania. I recommend it to every visitor.
Marius is smart, intelligent and highly knowledgeable guide. I was the only tourist on the tour and I've enjoyed Marius' company hugely. The concept of the tour is great, the route is very interesting, the story is rich and honest. It will give you the opportunity to see a part of Bucharest "out of the beaten track" and to hear the sad story of once flourishing Jewish community. The route is full of hidden architectural treasures.
The tour is just done by a clever person. It was a real pleasure. Do not miss it!
