Altough the weather was super cold and the tour took about 2 hours, we all really enjoyed the tour. It was full of interesting information, funny stories and nice places. They even explained us how it really was with the Dracula. Really worth visiting. And really worth spending some money for (at the end, voluntary)

I took the Walkabout Tour in Brasov on a bitter cold day in November with ebullient and entertaining guide, Kinga. Setting out, I wondered if I'd last the full tour as it was snowy and the wind was frigid but Kinga kept us moving along and presented Brasov history in such an amusing and engaging manner, I almost forgot my...

Brasov is a great base for various attractions in Transylvania, but if you want to know more about the town itself, this is the perfect way to do it, and a nice way to finish off a day before dinner. Meet in the town square at 3PM (and try some of the chimney cake being sold there - it's utterly... More

Not into free walking tours but we still decided to give it a try. We met Simona on the council square at 3 PM. She was great from the first moment. She handled over 2 hours of tour with very cold weather extremely well. Anyway, Simona has a great sense of humor, a wide knowledge and a gret way to... More

I was a very interesting and useful tour, because as the same time you know the city and attractions you want to see with more details, it tells about the history behind the attractions and give as an opportunity to understand better the peculiarities of the city

Simona on a very wet day kept us interested in such a historical area. Good fun and would definitely recommend it as you walk around on your own you miss bits which on a walking tour you get to hear and see it from a locals point of view.

We did the free walking tour with Simona, who was an excellent guide. She gave us a great insight into the history of Romania and Brasov in particular, with just the right amount of detail to keep you interested. The tour took in the main highlights of the town, along with a couple of other places we probably wouldn't have... More
