Full description

Enjoy a walk with a local friend during this guided tour to discover the highlights of Bucharest. Get an introduction to the city, while exploring popular sights, hidden corners, and historic squares. Make your way from the old city center to the iconic Palace of Parliament.

Starting in the old city center, begin by visiting the oldest witnesses of Bucharest’s birth and development: Old Princely Court, Manuc's Inn, and Stravopoleos Church.

Then, visit the most famous boulevard of Bucharest, Calea Victoriei, with its one-of-a-kind architecture and grandiose buildings like the National Military Circle, Telephone Palace, the Royal Palace of Bucharest, the Romanian Atheneum, and more.

Take a break from the city sights and get the opportunity to relax and cool down into the lush Cismigiu Gardens, where you’ll also find Bucharest City Hall at the end. The Cismigiu Gardens is the oldest park in Bucharest.

Pass into the 20th century and the Communist era by seeing the grandiose Ceausescu's Palace and Union Boulevard, which was designed to be longer and wider than Champs Elysee. End your visit at the Palace of the Parliament, the second largest and the heaviest building in the world.

It was a great tour with Alex. Very informative and in relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Alex is great guide and answers all your extra questions. It's nice to see how he loves the job he's doing. I had a really good time. It's definitely worth the money and I recommend it to every visitor. Bucharest left a very positive impression on me. Book this tour, tip your guide and enjoy. You will have a great time.

Very informative tour of Bucharest - you will be amazed! Our guide was able to tell a lot about the buildings and their history. But thanks to the small setting, we were also able to have good conversations about people's normal lives. We would have done the tour again. Thanks very much!

A wonderful tour of Bucharest's old town and nearby highlights. Alex was a great tour leader, full of useful facts about the history of Romania and how that shaped the country of today. Outside the tour, Alex had great communication with us and was very flexible in the tour organisation. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Bucharest.
