By far the best tour I've ever been on. Stayed on after and enjoyed lunch with Dana at a traditional Romanian restaurant and it was the best meal we've eaten by far. The tour was fantastic. She really knows the history and shared personal stories as well. She took us all over Bucharest and I feel I have a true sense of the city now.

Our walk was guided by Bogdan, who is very nice and has excellent knowledge. We saw all the most important Bucharest highlights and Bogdan showed us a few hidden gems too. Bogdan has very good historic knowledge, sense of humor and knows a lot of Bucharest and Romania's curiosities / trivia. What I personally appreciate is that Bogdan gave us some local insights about where to eat & go and when asked, he recommended me some local shops with pottery. I highly recommend this tour!

I recommend this guided tour at the beginning of your trip in Bucharest. This gave me an excellent perspective of the history, culture and politcs of Romania. Ioana was my tour lead and she was very friendly and shared some great insights not just on the above mentioned aspects but also on the architectural styles and history of some hidden gems in Old town of Bucharest. I highly recommend this tour.
