My guide was Helena and she was AMAZING! I loved everything about her! She was so passionate about everything that she was explaining, she showed us beautiful places that really opened my eyes to the true Bucharest beauty! We walked a lot but every mile was worth it! Even if you don’t like rural art this tour is a must! It makes you think about tons of political issues and my guide, Helena was always ready to listen to your opinion! I totally recommend it!

We really enjoyed our tour with Elena and seeing an alternative side of the city. Elena is an amazing tour guide, full of knowledge and passionate about street art. We can only recommand this tour! Thank you!

Very interesting tour with a well-informed guide who responds very well to the personal interests and questions of the participants and who is enthusiastic about the culture herself. A nice experience!

In addition to historical buildings, there is a lot of modern art and the associated background information. Informative, refreshing and varied - not least thanks to the dedicated guide.

I recommend my guide Elena. She knows all the secret places and stories about all day life in Romania today and in the past. Her tour is really entertaining and exciting.
