Alina, our tour guide, was engaging, fun, and was very knowledgable on Bucharest and its fascinating history. She was witty, personable, kept our spirits high and had our attention with a fun set of Q&As throughout the tour (with a cookie treat for each correct answer), even when it was freezing cold. I felt like I got an insiders view... More

Alina, our tour guide, had an in-depth knowledge of Bucharest's history, plus, her sarcasm and good-humour delivered a very personal and warm tour around the city center. After the tour, I really felt like I was in need of something like that, because I got to understand a lot more about what I was seeing/experiencing. I thoroughly recommend it to... More

The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all questions (including the random ones). She covered a wide range of topics in her explanations, including history, politics, traditional food, etc. She kept... More

Our tour guide was Mihaela and she was awesome! She had good information about the city, made the whole thing interactive by asking us questions and rewarding the ones who got the question correct with candy.. sadly I didn't get any :( Anyway I would definitely recommend doing the tour, but dress warm in winter cause it's a 2:30 long...
