Hello and welcome to Bucharest! I am Alina, your local guide, and I warmly invite you to join me on a private tour of Bucharest, exploring the best of my charming home town! With over 4 years of experience as a licensed guide, I bring to my tours a lot of local knowledge delivered in a professional, friendly and entertaining way. My background is in sociology: I studied Political Sciences & Sociology and during college I lived abroad in Italy and in France. This has greatly improved my intercultural communication skills and made me even more passionate about sharing the best of Romanian culture. After doing my PhD, for 5 years I taught sociology at the University. It was a marvelous experience which helped me better capture the attention of an audience. As a professional licensed guide, my goal is to ensure the best private tours and experiences for travelers interested in more than scratching the surface. Looking forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you here! Best wishes from Bucharest, Alina

Tour of Jewish sites in Bucharest led by Alina Brasoveanu
Alina led a group of 6 on a walking tour of synagogues, museums,and other sites focusing on the Jewish heritage in Bucharest. Highly informative, well-paced, articulate, and a pleasant manner. Good combination of factual detail and narrative stories.
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!
