“Great way to get to know Brașov”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Andrei gave a us a great tour, he not only knows lots about the history of the city but brings up many fun facts and stories. The tour is interesting and does takes you places where maybe you wouldn't go on your own. Plus, the guide, Andrei was very kind, gave us further suggestions about restaurants, things to do in the area, where to go for a drink.
Totally recommended!

“great free tour”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!
