Reviews from participants

If you are in Bucharest and you’d like to have a quick overview of the city, I would recommend taking this tour, but don’t forget your passport. You’ll need it to visit the House of People, house of Ceausescu. It was quite unique to see this impressive architecture built upon a church, a hospital, a few other institutions and dozens of workshops and factories. It is certainly breathtaking how such a monster could be built in the 1980s.
The tour gave me great insight into the city of Bucharest during a very short stay. Bucharest is quite a unique place with some rough edges but a very interesting and beautiful city in some parts. This tour gives you a very good introduction to further explorations.
