Rating 4.6 based on 25 reviews

A very intimate and emotional tour
My girlfriend and I booked this tour, and we met Catalina in the meeting point in the Unirii Boulevard, just to see that we were the only ones on the tour! So, it became the most intimate walking tour we had ever had! Catalina was charming and interesting all the time, showing us al the pros and cons of the communist regime of Nicolae Ceaucescu. We learned a lot! We also tasted typical chocolate bars from that time, and even we took photos with the handkerchief that children wore at school as members of the Pioneers.

I f you have time to spend on Bucharest, and you are eager to know about the life under the Ceaucescu regime and the Revolution of 1989, do not hesitate and book this tour.
The Untold Stories of Communist Bucharest
Stellar tour!!
This tour is amazing! I had limited time in Bucharest and decided to get to Bulgaria while I was closeby. SO happy I did! My tour guide, Constantine, was extremely knowledgeable about Romanian and Bulgarian history and the UNESCO sites we visited. I asked a million questions about Bucharest and the sites we visited which he so nicely answered. I could not have asked for a better day or tour guide! I would recommend this tour for small groups and individuals.

Excellent and personal Tour
Catalina gives an excellent and informative tour. She puts her passion into the journey through the dark communist times to the revolution and democracy. She is very personable and will answer any question about Rumania from past to the present. We thoroughly enjoyed the three hours “time travel”,

Superb tour guide
Booked a "Hidden Bucharest" tour with Alina and we weren't disappointed. Her communication at all times (before, during and since) has been excellent and she made sure prior to the tour she knew exactly what we were interested in. We visited parks, historic sights (with detailed explanations given), hidden bar/coffee shops as well as a few gems such as visiting the opera hall which we never would have realised we could without her. Alina herself is a superb guide with strong English, a great sense of humour and the right amount of quirkiness which fitted perfectly with us. I can' rate her highly enough and would happily go on a tour with her again - if we go to Constanta we'll collect on the drink she promised ;-)

Jewish Heritage and Old Town, walking tour
Alina is amazing tour guide; professional, well organized and enthusiastic! My companions and I spent 4 hours touring the Jewish area and the old town section. Alina is very knowledgeable about this subject and took us to the local synagogues. We had already down a tour of the old town area so Alina took us to places that were less well known. Her tour was so much better than the one we took with the trip we were on. Alina also recommended places for us to /eat closer to our hotel, the Sheraton. They were fantastic.

Bottom line, she can't do enough for you! She easily could tell what interests our group had. She is passionate about her city and wants you to be too!

Hidden Bucharest
Incredible day with Alina! Took the Hidden Bucharest tour and spent the day wandering around looking and learning about Romania architecture, history, economics, politics, gardens, music and food! This was a wonderful experience for my husband and me and we highly recommend Alina. She speaks perfect English, is an accomplished tour guide and is willing to help any way that is needed. In particular, Alina helped us by searching out and then taking us to a camera store for much needed supplies. Thank you for a terrific day in Bucharest!

Communism tour and the Palace of Parliament with Authentic Romania
We took a communism tour that included the visit to the Palace of Parliament with Authentic Romania. Everything was perfectly organised, we learned a lot about Romania's communist past, and saw all the main communist-era highlights all over Bucharest.
Alina took us to the Senate side of Parliament, where we were the only little group visiting at that time. It was such an amazing experience to be there and hear all the incredible facts about this grand building.
Would have never been able to see and learn so much without this tour.

Authentic Romania - Communist Bucharest Tour and Palace of the Parliament
This tour is a crash course in the history of Communism in Romania! The highlight of the tour is the Palace of the Parliament. To say this building is impressive is an understatement; there are over 1,000 rooms and a yearly utility bill of 8-12 million EU. The building also holds world records for the largest chandelier and carpet! While the interior is beyond words, the history being presented by a guide who experienced Communism is priceless. I recommend this tour, remember to bring your passport for entry.

A lesson in in Romania's past
We did Communist tour during our time in Bucharest and it was brilliant. The highlight was visiting the imposing Palace of the Parliament, a relic from Ceaucescu's tumultuous reign. It really gave us an understanding of why Bucharest is as it is today. Other highlights included Revolution square. Our guide was wonderful, attentive and entertaining. Highly recommend this tour!

Wine Tour Prahova
We had a great day visiting the two wineries in the Prahova valley despite the weather! Alina was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed touring around the Lacerta winery and got to see how the wine is made first hand in a very modern way. We tasted some very good wines and you guide at Lacreta was really helpful. Lunch at Urlateanu Manor was delicious and we experienced some good traditional Romanian dishes as well as taste some excellent wines during the meal. Thank you Auhero Travel for a great day!
