Note: They don't always wear orange, so look closely for people near the fountain!

Our guide was very knowledgeable with excellent English. I learned all kinds of fun facts about the city, its history and even some local legends. I went on the 18:00 tour in Oct and it got chilly so if you're going in fall/spring/winter bring a jacket! Doing the tour at night was very cool, though- I liked getting to see the city lit up and it made some of the history seem more alive.

The guide was great and always gave us a chance to ask questions and interacted with us while walking from one place to another. I enjoyed the tour and was more than happy to tip decently for the guide's time.

There's no reason not to take this tour while you're in the city. Go for it!

Took the tour this afternoon and it was awesome! The guide was very friendly and knew a lot about Brasov and it's history. The tour started a bit later in the afternoon and finished just after night fall giving a great view of the city at night! Highly recommend taking this tour!

We were fortunate to have Andrei as our guide on the last regularly scheduled tour of the season. However, I see on their website that you can contact them to arrange a tour at other times of the year...http://www.guided-brasov.com/. Andrei spoke excellent English, was enthusiastic, and kept us walking for over 2 hours. His knowledge of the city and its history was impressive. He infused his commentary with Romanian folklore and a lot of humor. We were laughing while we walked and learned. The next day we retraced our tour and took more photos.

We just finished our free walking tour of Brasov with Yoanna. It was outstanding. She made the city come alive in modern and ancient setting. Very knowledgeable, friendly, informative and extremely patient/helpful. Best tour/part of trip in Romania so far and it was free (of course we made donation for such a wonderful experience). My wife and I would recommend anyone traveling to Brasov to arrange for this tour. Best 2 1/2 hours you will spend and Yoanna even directed us to an excellent ice cream store!!!

Thank you Yoanna and walking tours of Brasov.

The tour was held by Andrew. Andrew showed us the most important sites of Brasov. The tour started in the Council Square at 6:00pm and finished with a great view of the entire city at the White Tower. This tour is the best way how to spend the evening and to discover the city.

This is a best way to see the city and to communicate with other travellers from all of the world.

Recommendation how to improve tour is to be more enthusiastic.
