Full description

Enjoy a walk with a local friend during this guided tour to discover the highlights of Bucharest. Get an introduction to the city, while exploring popular sights, hidden corners, and historic squares. Make your way from the old city center to the iconic Palace of Parliament.

Starting in the old city center, begin by visiting the oldest witnesses of Bucharest’s birth and development: Old Princely Court, Manuc's Inn, and Stravopoleos Church.

Then, visit the most famous boulevard of Bucharest, Calea Victoriei, with its one-of-a-kind architecture and grandiose buildings like the National Military Circle, Telephone Palace, the Royal Palace of Bucharest, the Romanian Atheneum, and more.

Take a break from the city sights and get the opportunity to relax and cool down into the lush Cismigiu Gardens, where you’ll also find Bucharest City Hall at the end. The Cismigiu Gardens is the oldest park in Bucharest.

Pass into the 20th century and the Communist era by seeing the grandiose Ceausescu's Palace and Union Boulevard, which was designed to be longer and wider than Champs Elysee. End your visit at the Palace of the Parliament, the second largest and the heaviest building in the world.

The tour insides you at Bucharest most important sightseeings. However, nothing would matter if it wasn't Kyprianos there, our guide. There aren't words to describe this man. Early in the morning he made the whole group laugh and keep this spirit through the end. He knows, maybe, everything, but for sure any question, relative or not, we made. It seems that he loves what he chose to do and we are really, really lucky for meeting him. No words are enough to describe him. Thank you for everything ❤️

This walking tour was really interesting and very comprehensive. All the must see areas of the city were well covered. Lucia, our guide, is really passionate and and she gave us a succinct overview of the city, and well explained the country’s history, politics and tales including Dracula. This tour definitely gave us a better perspective of the city’s history and we will be leaving Bucharest back to the UK with so much stories to tell!

This is a very good introduction to Bucharest and well worth doing early during your stay. You're taken to the main areas like Old Town and The Parliament. within a historical context. Of course, the Ceausescu legacy hangs over the city but that makes it no less historically fascinating. Ciprian, our guide, was excellent. Splendidly attired in a red beret, he was both fluently informative and congenial. Recommended.
