Nicu Suru was our guide and he did a great job!!! He is very friendly, knows a lot and was ready and patient enough to answer all our questions. And we were asking lots of questions!!! It was an interesting tour, first giving an overview of the city and then bringing us to the important sights. We were very satisfied and can warmly recommend him. Thank you Nicu for having been our guide! Silvia and Chris - Switzerland

Guiden Alex var mycket kunnig. Han delade med sig både av sitt kunnande om Bukarests historia och de olika regionerna. Kunde svara på alla frågor både kring politik och religion och samhällsfrågor i stort. Alex var mycket social och trevlig. Rekommenderas varmt! Dessutom en duktig förare som kan sitt Bukarest.
