Best sight seeing tour ever!

Alina and Robert from Authentic Romania gave us a great overview of the city of Bucharest. We stopped at the most important stations in an air-conditioned, clean minibus and Robert explained a few interesting backgrounds to us. There was also enough time to take photos. At the end we went to see the old town on foot and Alina was so nice to help us with buying tickets for public transport, which is unfortunately not that easy for tourists in Bucharest. Taxis are cheap in Bucharest, but there are many black sheep among you who like to exclude tourists. Alina warned us about this and told us which of the many taxi companies are trustworthy. We were completely satisfied and felt very comfortable. This tour is definitely to be recommended!

Nicholas was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable of the Romanian history and culture. Nicolas speaks excellent English. He showed us all of the beautiful buildings in the old city and we stopped for the best eclairs in the world We enjoyed our trip so much that we booked a day trip with him to Bran Castle, Peles castle and the bear sanctuary.

Valentine was a perfect guide. Knows a lot about the city and the Rumenian history, It's funny and really into his work. Always there to give you the best advises as possible. We will miss him! Higly raccomended! -Michela & Raffaele, Italy

The tour is time well spent!

Valentina delivered excellent, highly personalized service. Dan (driver) also did well in driving us around and taking some of our group photos. Highly recommended!
