We always look for free walking tours in any city that we visit as it helps us with the orientation of the city and is a great way to decide which of the places of interest are worth spending more time at.

We did this tour on a Wednesday morning in very snowy weather expecting to be the only ones on the tour. However we weren't the only ones, there was 5 people in total.
Our guide was Christina (we think) who was doing her second solo tour, she was born and bred in Bucharest and was very knowledgeable and interesting. She took us to the main points of interest and did her best to find some where undercover to explain about each place.

If you come to Bucharest, or any other city, then definitely get on one of these tours as you won’t regret it.

Finally a big thanks as we now understand the complex history of Bucharest and Romania.

Dear K H,
Thank you very much for joining our free tour, especiallay considering the bad weather you had to endure, and for the appreciation! Besides offering our guests interesting information about the city, we also want to take care of them as much as possible during the tour, that is why it is essential to us to find the best spots to stop at according to the conditions outside. Great travels and all the best!

A two to three hour walking tour in the morning visiting the important areas and features of the history of Bucharest and Romania. Alice our guide for the morning showed obvious passion for her subject and kept the group attention the whole time. The walk is augmented by many pictures from the past which brought the history alive. We were a mixed bunch of Greek, Brits, other Europeans and even Romanians. Do not miss the tour!! There is also an afternnon tour of the old town which we did not attend because of time. Well done Alice and well done Btrip, keep up the work. Ps. Any chance of emailing me the group photo from the morning of March 10th ... cheers Alan

We did both walks on the same day with Stephania (?). Both walks were excellent giving us a great overview of the city and information about the past. All done in a light and entertaining way. And her English was better than mine! Thank you very much.
