Ttour guide Alex was very knowledgeable and friendly, and he was prompt. We knew virtually nothing about Romanian history and Alex told the history in an entertaining and digestible way. Although Bucharest is not a very bike friendly city, Alex designed a route that was mostly in very rider friendly/safe areas, with the exception of a few busy crossroads. We had fun & learned a lot, I would recommend particularly to younger people who wanting to do something more active and quicker paced than standard walking tour. Some considerations when booking, factor in the time of sunset. We would’ve preferred to ride a bit earlier just to have better visibility, particularly of the parks. Also, no big deal to us, but there is no formal store front or office at the meet up location. Factor in as far as pre-biking bathroom stops & clothing attire, etc.
