“great free tour”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

It's not always easy to get detailed information on Brasov's major attractions, we learned MUCH more on this tour than we would have been able to figure out on our own. Andre's knowledge was extensive and he led a fun and informative conversation about Romania's past and present as we strolled around. This is totally worth doing.

“Good way to see the city and get the history”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

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!

“Great free walking tour!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

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!

“Great tour with excellent info”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

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.
