Elena was great! I was running late, she was waiting for me and showed me really nice street art and the story and meaning behind it. At the end of the tour, we even wrote an poem about Bucharest, that I enjoyed very much. Thank you. I recommend this tour strongly, if you are interested in street art and the alternative part of Bucharest.

Excellent street art tour
Great tour - Elena had excellent knowledge, and made it personal and was flexible to our needs (i.e. stopping by getting a quick beer now and then:). Very recommended!
Really interesting and out of the box
Elena gave us a private tour through Bucharest. A lot of pictures and street art makes her story pleasantly and interesting. We did walk for two ours and did see a lot of art, hidden gems and a couple of beautiful tips.

Thank you Elena!
Fun and interesting free walking tour in the Old part of Bucharest. We didn't walk a lot, as everything was so close, but each stop helps us learn more about the sights and history of the city.
very interesting experience
Michaela knows very good the town and the country, and she answer every our questions. The tour was very interesting, in particular the story about the country and the revolution against the dictature. We explore all the most important monuments and square of the city.
