Total Bucharest Tour - Absolutely Bohemian Small Group Tour
US$138.38
Overview
Pair Romania’s tumultuous history with the best bites in Bucharest on this full-day outing that combines two popular tours. Explore the capital’s most important sights plus hidden treasures, from medieval Old Town to Communist relics and tucked-away Bohemian courtyards. Travel by foot and by city tram, stopping at markets and vendors along the way to sample typical Romanian food.
What to Expect
Begin in Revolution Square, a perfect place for a lesson in modern Romanian history including the 1989 people’s uprising. Follow the grand boulevard of Victory Avenue, passing landmarks like the Kretzulescu Church and hearing more local lore along the way. Journey back to medieval Europe inside the well-preserved Old Town, once an important crossroads between Europe and the Ottoman Empire. Sink your teeth into a corvig (soft pretzel) before exploring vampire legends at the former palace of Dracula inspiration Vlad Tepes.

Rest and refuel in the garden of a turn-of-the-century townhouse with a spread of typical Romanian specialties like goat cheese, cured meat, fresh-baked bread, spring onions, and local craft beers. Walk it off with a tour of lovely Mantuleasa, the former Jewish quarter, and the old Armenian district while learning about life in 19th-century and inter-war Bucharest.

Sip a cold Romanian weissbier, and then see how locals get around with a ride on the public tram down Mosilor Street past remnants of the Communist era. Get off near the Obor Market for a tasting tour through this bustling culinary destination. Browse colorful vendor stalls and sample Romanian palinca (brandy), cheeses, skinless sausages called mici, and a fresh Wallachian doughnut to finish on a sweet note.

This is a very good tour. In addition to seeing sights and learning the backstory of different places around the city, there was plenty to eat and drink to keep the energy level up. History from facts in books is usually boring, but when the...More

This is mostly walking. There is a ride on a street trolley/light rail and a ride on the subway. This bypasses the popular tourist places. We walked through local neighborhood streets as we went to the places the locals go... More
