What people are saying about Bucharest

Fantastic insights into Bucharest history

Absolutely satisfied with this fascinating tour and my guide for the afternoon, Tudor. From the moment he met me -- at the appointed hour, at the appointed Metro stop, with both bottled water and a gift of Romanian Easter eggs (it was Easter Monday) in hand -- I was thoroughly impressed with the itinerary and Tudor's grasp of Romanian and local Bucharest history. Tudor is super-friendly and accommodating guide. Loved the visits to cemeteries, rickety apartment blocks, Communist-era Metro stops and government structures, and sites associated with the 1989 revolution. Hair-raising details about Bucharest serial killers was an added bonus. Best of all, Tudor followed up with an email contaIning links to online articles and resources further explaining and exploring all the topics we covered. That's a first for me -- and I was a travel journalist for 15 years and have taken scores and scores of tours around the world. I

The best alternative city tour you can get

A local guude named Mircea did a solo tour with only me and after a few minutes it already felt like walking through the streets with a close friend. The dark side of Bucharest included a visit to the cemetery and to some other places in the city where gruesome things took place. From architecture to politics, Mircea knew an answer to all the questions I've had. Mind you, it's not at all your usual "follow the umbrella" tour and he and his team aim for providing tourists with a far more personal and heartfelt experience. He's with Urban Adventures Bucharest and does a lot of other "alternative" walking tours so I can not recommend them enough. I've learned a lot and I had a lot of fun, what more could you possibly ask for?

Awesome, unique and delicious 4ish hour tour

We booked our tour knowing very little about Bucharest. We are so thrilled with the entire experience which included Mircea and Alex (our guides) sharing a delicious Romanian Beer in a very cool bar, touring us around Mahallas and treating us to the best Mici in town. The down to earth vibe and level of knowledge and passion they both had for the city was contagious. Though we were walking mostly through ice and snow, we truly enjoyed the time together and overall experience. We will certainly book future tours with them and are already planning a trip back to Bucharest in warmer weather to do other tours/exploration.

We chose the Darkside Tour, and it was quite a ride!

We chose the Darkside Tour, and it was quite a ride. As active urban explores and inhabitants of Bucharest, our guide Dana managed to find new and amazing places to see,having a deep knowledge about all the dark places this great city has to offer. The stories she told us in Bellu Cemetery were both terrifying and exciting as it was all true, implementing details that are weird and less know about popular historical figures. Definitely a great way to spice things up and enjoy your Bucharest stay. We are excited about other tours as well.

Excellent if your looking for Something different This is it!

Tudor & Andrew our guides were very informative and full of great information. I would highly recommend them, Very friendly and made to feel most relaxed and comfortable. Interesting tour from all aspects from the graveyards, to the History & monumental buildings and not forgetting the serial killer info! I would def recommend this tour Great value, professional but with a personal touch 10/10.
