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!

Old Town and Wine Tasting Tour
Alina was an incredible guide for explaining the historical sites, restaurants, wine bars, and wines in the Old Town area of Bucharest. I was able to experience and learn about this amazing city because of her vast knowledge. The Romanian wines that she recommended based on my preferences were delicious and there many brands to choose from. I would definitely recommend havingbher as a guide for this or any other tours she offers. She is experienced, friendly, and will tailor the tour to your needs if you want.
