The tour was brilliant! Alex was fantastic with so much knowledge and humour. We visited the main historical sites and had time for refreshments at the lovely place by the river. He also gave us tips on what to see, and where to grab a drink or some food in the city. I would recommend this to everyone! My new favourite way to explore the cities

We had decided at short notice to do a bike tour through Bucharest and it was easy to book a 2-hour bike tour with very interesting explanations about the old town and history. Too bad there are no tour offers in German, but that's a general problem.

Alex was incredibly knowledgeable and it was so much fun cycling around the city. I’d recommend this to anyone visiting Bucharest, can’t speak highly enough about how interesting this experience was! Thank you Alex, definitely the highlight of the trip

This was a great way to see Bucharest. Very friendly and informative guide, paste that suited everyone and interesting sites. I would definitely recommend it.

One of my favorite so far, Alex was so nice and friendly, I even thought to take the tour once more
