Best sight seeing tour ever!

Alina and Robert from Authentic Romania gave us a great overview of the city of Bucharest. We stopped at the most important stations in an air-conditioned, clean minibus and Robert explained a few interesting backgrounds to us. There was also enough time to take photos. At the end we went to see the old town on foot and Alina was so nice to help us with buying tickets for public transport, which is unfortunately not that easy for tourists in Bucharest. Taxis are cheap in Bucharest, but there are many black sheep among you who like to exclude tourists. Alina warned us about this and told us which of the many taxi companies are trustworthy. We were completely satisfied and felt very comfortable. This tour is definitely to be recommended!

Our guide, Andrei Coca, was outstanding. Great English, lots of interesting information, good jokes and anecdotes.
