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!

Fantastic tour with an excellent guide
This is a brilliant full day tour for anyone who is interested in the history of Romania and the Ceausescu period in particular. Our guide Florin was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and shared his personal experiences and those of his family. Even though we booked the tour at short notice he had managed to get us tickets into the People's Palace and the Spring Palace, the Ceausescu's unbelievably decadent home. He also tailored the tour to our interests, showing us an exhibition on the area of Bucharest cleared to build the parliament and taking us to the Ceausescus' tomb. An invaluable day out!

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!

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.
Private Wine Tasting Tour in Bucharest Old Town
Amazing!
Couldn't have asked for a better day trip! Our tour guide Stefan was absolutely outstanding, he was very knowledgable on all the sites that we visited. Also, although one of the sites were closed they made sure to accommodate us with an alternate option. If you have a small group of two or three people this is exactly what you want. It was very well organized and we felt like we were able to see and get the most out of a day trip. Highly recommend this day tour!

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.

Great tour of the Communist Era
This tour was really great. I visited all the main sigths of the communist era in Bucharest, including the Palace of the Parliament (about 1.5 hours tour) and Ceaușescu's house (about 45 mins). I asked my guide about a snack lunch and was taken to the local market, where I had traditional small sausages and a beer with the locals, which was great.

Superb tour with a very personal touch
This is one of the friendliest and most informative tours I have been on. Alina has a lovely friendly style and is clearly very knowledgeable about every aspect of Bucharest. The tour felt relaxed and fitted perfectly for our first day in the city giving us countless options and ideas for the days ahead.
Hidden Bucharest Private Tour
A wonderful experience
Alina is a great guide. She knows the material and is enthusiastic about it. She's also a very friendly and pleasant person, with a good sense of humor, so that it is very enjoyable to spend time with her. Definitely recommended for anyone with an interest in Romania's Jewish community, past and present.

I knew a little about Peles Castle, not much, but this made my experience so much better. All that architecture and the stories that our guide Andrei told us made it such a rich experience. The guide explained so nicely and was so helpful all the time. I so glad that we went on this trip.

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.
