Experience a true rural pub crawl in the best village pubs surrounding the Romanian capital of Bucharest. Visit 4 pubs in 4 villages and get to know the Romanian countryside lifestyle only a short hop from the capital. Benefit from hotel pickup and drop-off so you can drink not drive. After pickup from your centrally located hotel in Bucharest, drive for approximately 30 minutes to the first countryside pub. Spend around 30 minutes and taste 2 different drinks in each pub. Take advantage of the opportunity to sample the typical Romanian shot țuică and some local snacks, too. In the pubs, interact with the rural Romanian locals and make new friends with other participants on the tour. Let yourself go and enjoy the most original Romanian pub crawl experience.

Stefan the guide was absolutely great! He picked us on time from the hotel and took us to places we normally even go inside.... Mostly recommended!
Your Bucharest tour begins in University Square, the geographical and administrative heart of the city, and the scene of titanic street battles between miners and students immediately after the Romanian Revolution. Absorb all that sociopolitical history before taking a short walk to Strada Batistei, formerly known as the 'St Germain' of Bucharest and the site of the old American embassy, now an overgrown testament to different times. This area is famed for its 19th-century Neo Romanian architecture that defines much of the national style. The first stop will be an exquisite turn-of-the-century townhouse, lovingly restored but with the sense of elegant decay so typical of Bucharest.

Our guide, Dana, could not have been better. She gave us the excellent historical, architectural and culinary insight into Bucharest and Romania. She also made the tour fun! I cant recommend her highly enough.

I enjoyed Marius the guide a lot as the tour guide and driver! The anecdotes, history and personal opinions he told us on the way and at the castles, streets and gardens were very clear and very interesting. I HIGHLY recommend this tour to everyone! And consider booking the 2 or 3-day tours since they are more flexible and allow you to experience the places and Romania itself much better. I would only suggest talking more peacefully about the roads and them bad drivers :))
Overall this is a pleasant experience that was worth the price. The drive from / to Bucharest is the longest part. That's why I feel this trip's decision to include two castles and a town is good. The long ride is not justified by a single destination. Be ready to return late (we arrived back around 21:30). Also take some snacks as the meal times can vary.
Nice places to see, it seems a long day but totally worth the while. The lunch could be made shorter if there were options to preorder ahead, to save some time.
I enjoyed a trip which included a variety of destinations with a knowledgable and attentive host He always made himself available to us when we wanted help
The tour was good. The tour guide had good knowledge of the sites and was very humorous as well. Definitely recommend this tour
