What people are saying about Bucharest

Great Tour! Highly recommended, extremely insightful.

We spent 5 days in Bucharest recently, and of all the activities we did (tourist and otherwise), this was by far my favourite. A must-do if you have any interest in what it's like to live in Bucharest, the effects of communism, and the transition to capitalism. The insight given is from someone who has lived through the lasting effects during the transition to capitalism, with real insight into what got us here and where Bucharest and Romania are headed. The stories told are fascinating, and the connection that is shared is real. It's such a deep and multi-dimensional topic, that any understanding we can have from the west is severely limited by where we get our information. It's nice to get that from someone on the ground, who has a deep understanding of the subject matter and real connection to it.

Excellent and knowledgeable guide, office staff could be better

It was nice that the guide knew the topic really well. As I am quite fluent in the topic (about Eastern Europe in general, but no about Romania in particular) myself, I appreciate that the guide was able to answer specific questions and speak about different issues. But the office staff made some mess at the evening before the tour. I was proposed another time for the tour but did not accept it. Luckily I was checking the email all the evening so it was possible to follow the proposals. However, some other people from the tour did not manage to read the final message so they joined the tour a half hour later (they were proposed the change of time to 15:00 but afterwards changed back to 14:30).

Excellent guide, deep insight to Romanian history and society

We had a fantastic and learning tour in the heart of Bucharest and through the last decades of Romanian history. Even though being too young to have seen it with her own eyes, our marvellous guide, Elena, gave us a very insightful and balanced view of Romania in both the years with communism and the years after the fall of the regime. This is a 'must do' when in the the beautiful capitol of Romania.

Bucharest: Relics of Communism 3-Hour Walking Tour Reviewed by Niels Majland, 07/14/2017

Excellent, knowledgeable guide, but overran

Our guide was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and seemed to know the history of every building in Bucharest! My only criticism is that the tour overran by an hour and a half (partly as we had to have a coffee stop for the older members of our party) and we had to rearrange our evening plans. Leaving this aside, it is an excellent way to spend an afternoon,

Elena, my tour guide was a library of knowledge on the City's history

The tour was supposed to be 2.5 hrs but the tour guide went past 3 hours with so much interesting information and stories about the revolution and life during communism. I highly recommend this tour of Bucharest and Elena the tour guide.
