Full description
Start your 4-hour bike tour in Bucharest’s old city, where you’ll hear about the birth of the city and Romanian civilization. During Communist times the old city area was decimated and overtaken by grandiose urban projects. Today it is one of the poorest areas in Bucharest and is mostly inhabited by gypsies. Marvel at the monumental Parliament Palace, and learn about life for the people under the Ceasescu regime. Ride by buildings dating from the golden age of Bucharest of the 19th and the early 20th century. See landmarks and monuments from the time when Bucharest was known as Little Paris.

This is the perfect way to spend your morning and early afternoon. Our tour guide was very accommodating and personable. I surprised by a break in the middle of the tour to have a refreshment at one of the local restaurants where I enjoyed a nice conversation with the other travelers I met. I would highly recommend this tour to my anyone. I definitely learned a lot and look forward to enjoying more experiences like this in the future.

The tour was brilliant! Alex was fantastic with so much knowledge and humour. We visited the main historical sites and had time for refreshments at the lovely place by the river. He also gave us tips on what to see, and where to grab a drink or some food in the city. I would recommend this to everyone! My new favourite way to explore the cities

My tour guide “the Romanian Highlander” was fantastic; friendly, welcoming, knowledgable, funny, informal, and had great English. It was a really well laid out tour, a really good route, we saw all the good sights, I learned all about the history, with some added information and details. I definitely will try come back to Bucharest at some point, spend a bit longer, and maybe do the tour again. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!
