Full description
Bucharest is a city that wears its history proudly, if not painfully, on its sleeve. The city is a vibrant and noisy place, filled with stunning architecture, plenty of smiles, and someone at a cafe always happy to tell you their story of where they were in 1989. Today, we will experience the best Bucharest has to offer, and learn a bit of its history, while enjoying marvelous architecture and grand boulevards. We begin at Revolution Square, home to the 1989 revolution that brought Ceausescu's regime to a close. Here we can see the Royal buildings, Libraries and Statues that make up this grand and central area of Bucharest. From here we walk down Victoriei Avenue towards the heart of Bucharest's bustling commercial quarters. We will pass the Princely Court and Church in the old quarters, as well as the Palace of Justice, with its imposing columns reminding us that the state was once all powerful. Eventually after a nice stroll, we arrive at Unirii Square, the gigantic transportation hub of Bucharest. Here we can see the Palace of Parliament, which we can stop and visit, should you choose. If there it’s not possible to visit the palace, we can instead visit the Spring Palace/Ceausescu's residence. We move on to the Metropolitan Church, where we can again look at the lovely iconography of these Orthodox churches. Walking back towards the University, we will pass Bucharest's own Arch de Triumph, and have the option to stop at the Village Museum. All together, our walk will introduce you to the highlights of this city, while explaining to you their importance in history. Romanians proudly walk these streets along side you, and by the end of our day together, hopefully you will feel a bit closer to their incredible story.

    great and reliable ride and guided tour by claudiu and elisabetha

    Super punctual pick-up and almost friendly guidance by Bucharest claudiu and elisabetha were so motivated that I saw more than I had originally planned. Should I come to Bucharest again, I will do everything possible to get everything shown by the two, for which there was no time the first time. a propos time: despite the exceptional traffic, everything was not hectic and my tour even took more than half an hour longer than planned (and paid) grand merci to the two

    Punctuality, friendliness and preparation. Recommended!

    Second experience with them and fully satisfied. Punctual, they picked us up at the hotel, in two people (a driver and guide, who will entertain you during the trip). Friendly, helpful and very prepared, they will take you to discover Bucharest. I recommend above all to those who are afraid of making bad surprises in a country not famous for its safety.
