"Thank you for being spot-on, here, haha! Remembering the cemetery we visited as a "culture" spot, eh? Yep! As a peculiar mix of dark and bright. Alex"
Great time!

I had a great time on this trip with Andra. She was very knowledgable and seemed very passionate to share her stories about her country with the group. Having little knowledge of Bucharest, this was a good tour to supplement what I learned on my trip and definitely had some different turns than a typical tour. If you're looking for something off the beaten path, this is it!

"Hey there! Thank you so much for the king words! It is so great that we managed to surprise you and also helped the city reveal its self. It really was my pleasure, and thank you for being open to exploring! All the very best to you! Andra"

It was a different tour of Buchaerest and the guide was really good and had some very nice stories. It was perfect that he had brought mosquito repellent because there was billions of mosquitos in the commentary.
Robert was friendly, knowledgeable...

Robert was friendly, knowledgeable and fun. After seeing so much of the typical side of Bucharest tourism, it was great to have a local share his opinions and a bit of the underbelly. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes - there is a lot of walking!
