We loved the tour and believe that we saw and learned a great deal about Romania in those 3 days. The hotels were great and the places chosen for lunches delightful. We could not have asked for more or gotten anything better. We highly recommend this tour and this tour company.

  • Bucharest: Sites & Bites Tour with a Local Guide

    9. Bucharest: Sites & Bites Tour with a Local Guide

    Your Bucharest tour begins in the political center of the city, Revolution Square (formerly known as Palace Square), which has witnessed most of the important events in Romanian history. It was from here in 1989 that dictator Ceausescu made his ill-advised rallying speech to a crowd that quickly turned on him, instigating the Romanian revolution. Surrounding the square are several other notable landmarks, including the former Royal Palace, the Athenaeum concert hall, and Athenee Palace, the heart of espionage and intrigue in the years between the wars. And in such a historical spot, it’s appropriate that you have a historical treat. You’ll indulge in a covrig, a daily salty snack for most Romanians that was likely introduced by Hapsburg or German merchants in medieval times.  Next up, you’ll leave the square and head south along Victory Street, named after the spectacular victory of the...

Beautiful discoveries, the visit on the Danube top, Constanta really to discover. The only downside was the choice of the hotel. André is an excellent guide, benevolent, discreet, very attentive. He is also a very good driver, careful and respectful. Which is rare in Romania! We recommend André +++

Good wineries, good tours, friendly and welcoming driver and a good amount of time at each venue. No complaints, all around a great experience

Literally the best wine tasting ever! You could basically drink as much as you can. Driver was awesome too and the guides in vinyards. 11/10.
