I recommend this tour to everyone! Nicolas was very friendly and he is a good driver. He picked me up from the hotel on time. Nicolas is very knowledgeable about the city, buildings and history which was very interesting. Since I was in Bucharest in the off-season, I was the only tourist who booked this tour. Nicolas responded to my wishes and interests. We ate at a great place and I was able to go shopping at the Hard Rock Cafe. We visited the Athenaeum, which was very impressive and the orthodox church was also very interesting to see from the inside. All in all it was a brilliant afternoon. Nicolas is an experienced guide who loves his job and has been doing it for a long time. He's just new on this platform, so don't be afraid to book him, I did it too and have no regrets. Top ! 5 Stars!

Nicolas è stato una guida fantastica. Gentilissimo, discreto, estremamente competente. Mi ha addirittura mostrato il bellissimo monastero Stavropoleos, che non era previsto dell'itinerario. È stato bravissimo nel mostrarmi i contrasti architettonici di questa affascinante città, ossia la convivenza (anche a poche decine di metri di distanza) di edifici ottocenteschi francesi, palazzi comunisti, recenti costruzioni "capitaliste". Eclettismo infatti è la cifra stilistica della fascinosa capitale rumena. Quattro ore davvero molto belle.
