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.

Very good tour!
Our guide gave us a very interesting tour of the city, with a lot of historical facts thrown in. His knowledge of the city and of the history that has shaped it was quite extensive. On top of that, he was polite and accommodating. Highly recommended.

I spent one amazing day with Tudor seeing the most beautiful scenery in the Carpathians. Prahova Valley made quite an impression and from the beginning I saw that we stepped on the right foot.

A wonderful guide and a superb introduction to Romania. Must come back in the winter and in the summer. Romania is a remarkable country to explore. Thank you Tudor!

Very passionate, informative guide. Catalin answered to all of our questions on how life was in communist times compared to the times we live now and what happened in 1989. Highly recommended!

I visited Bucharest in April 2015. The city has a complicated history, but unique if you get to think about it … Great guide and great tour. You must take this communist tour in Bucharest to understand the city and its history.

I chose this tour due to my fascination about Dracula but I could not find him there as I wished. Though, the castles and the citadels impressed me a lot and it was easy to understand why Bram Stoker chose Transylvania for his book. The landscapes were amazing, Romania has for sure something very wild and mysterious with all those wooded mountains and strong medieval constructions. A nice touch was including the tour Iulia Hasdeu Castle, not a medieval one but with a beautiful-sad story which impressed us all. Maybe in the future the authorities will consider giving Dracula more credit than some cheap souvenirs as there are many generations that grew up with Dracula stories. At least, I returned home with great memories and great photos from Transylvania and now it will be much easier to tell my son stories about Dracula actually showing him real images from the Count’ real home.
