My family lived in Arad during the latest decades of the nineteen century and first decades of the twenty century. They emigrated to Brazil in 1924. I and my brother went to Arad during April 2015 to learn a bit about Arad's history and features of the local population. I have read previous positive reviews about the "Arad free tour" and was impressed with them. Our tour was even better than was reported before in the reviews. Besides an excelent lecture about Arad's history and culture during the tour, we found two new friends among the Arad-free-tour'staff - Eugen and Mario, two very dedicated fellows to the task of promoting Arad's touristic and cultural potential.

We took a free tour with young and very informative guide Eugen who was born and brought up in Arad so he knew the history very well...He was a fund of information and funny anecdotes. Two hours flew by so quickly,there was never a dull moment. well worth doing the walk because it gives you an excellent idea about the local history. We had to see Arad for only couple of hours because we had to go back to Timisoara at the same day...so this was the only opportunity to visit the city in so limited time....Thanks one more time and all the best in fulfilling your brilliant projects...

We had a private tour for two with Eugen. He guided us through the city and history of Arad which he knows very good. It was a very interesting tour with lots of stories about the past and present of the city which you don't find in a travel guide.

Very good free walking tour through Arad organised by a group of young, motivated and very dedicated locals. Although I'd already been living in Arad for five months when doing the tour, I got to see some completely unknown places of the city, not even mentioning the profound knowledge of our two tour guides, local high school students, which gave us a unique insight into Arad now and back in the days. The team is very flexible and it was childishly simple to "book" the tour on their site. Our guides were certainly very passionate about their home town and I'm sure that this project will - with the help of some more promotion and after some more tours - grow much bigger and more popular. It's definitely the first thing every tourist visiting Arad should do and I can highly recommend it.
