What you'll do

Treat yourself to the highlights of Romania’s capital and its traditional cuisine through this 4-hour cultural walking tour that ends with a full 3 course Romanian meal.

Discover the landmarks of Bucharest and journey back through its rich history, from its medieval origins, to its Belle Époque era and its more recent communist past, to see what has shaped both the city and its cuisine.

Begin the tour in the Revolution Square, the political center of Bucharest until three decades ago, a place which has witnessed some of the most dramatic events in the country’s recent history. Explore the posh and bustling Victory Avenue with its many iconic sights, then head towards the city’s historic center, with its myriad of lively, meandering streets.

See the People’s House, the largest building in Europe, and get the story behind this megalomaniac communist-era undertaking. Then head towards one of the most charming restaurants in Bucharest to conclude the tour with a three-course traditional Romanian meal. Further enrich your understanding of local life by sharing a meal with your guide and delighting your taste buds with the most popular local dishes and drinks.

I had the most enjoyable time!!!!! I took the history and gastronomy tour which had been the best choice of life! Dana is just awesome! She knows everything and so many interesting facts about Romania and Bucharest and I got to learn so much because of her, all about the politics, the history and some facts really got me related to my own country. She had such a great sense of humour and she was so smart and so patient. Not only that I got to visit all the must-seen touristic places but also she took to these hidden gems which really amazed me! I came to Bucharest with absolute no common sense about the country and no such high expectations. But now I just want to come back as soon as possible and if I’m lucky enough I’ll have her as my guide again!! Last but not the least, she took me to this awesome old magnificent restaurant to have a three course traditional Romania lunch and it was so delicious!!!!!!! Honestly this tour worth every penny and again I feel so grateful to have taken part in this tour and met Dana ❤️❤️❤️

It was an amazing day walking around Bucharest with Dana. She knows a lot about architecture, history and famous people and she gave us a lot of fun facts about Bucharest. The lunch at the end was the perfect way to end the experience. I really feel like i learned a lot and had a lot of fun while doing it.

Our guide was Dana, she's a part of Doru's crew. She was super professional and interesting, would recommend this tour to everyone who visit Bucharest. The lunch at the end was very refreshing and the restaurant itself was amazing.

I really enjoyed the tour. Alex is an architect, and he showed us special buildings while explaining about different styles, and it was completely new to me. Besides, Alex is an highly educated and interesting person, and very nice. We finished with delicious local food at the restaurant. it was worth it!

We had a great tour with Alex! I'm really glad we took this experience. The explanations were fascinating and we were filled with historical and cultural knowledge that accompanies us whenever we raise our heads and look at an ancient building :) Thanks Alex, hope to see you in the not far future - Ingrid & Jacob
