Silvana R.

Bucharest, Romania

Hello! I am Silvana, a passionate tour guide at your service.

Welcome to Romania!

Let my still young age not full you - I am a BA of Art History with a master's degree in Museum Studies and keen interest in social history, responsible tourism and life-long learning (among many other things).
I see myself really privileged to have such a wonderful profession: everyday I get to meet people from all around the world, share quality time & conversations with them, do exciting new things and see the most beautiful places.
It's not a job, I tell you, it's a dream come true!

Why book a tour with me?

*Born and raised in Bucharest, I know the city's most surprising details which I am eager to share with you on fun walking or sightseeing tours.
*On my private half-day, full-day and multi-day trips I do my best to provide more than so called "facts". Instead I try to offer a fresh and nuanced insight of past and present Romania.
*I am always up-to-date with all the interesting things going on around town - on my tours you will get lots of tips about what to see and do while in Bucharest.
*Last but not least - all my tours are thoroughly prepared in advance and will be carefully adapted to your specific needs and interests.

Got any questions or suggestions? Or want to book a tour?
Drop me a line and I will get back to you in no time!

Silvana was amazing! We loved every minute of our tour. She is very knowledgeable in every aspect of Bucharest and Romanain history. The tour was at a comfortable pace, and we paused when we needed a break. Silvana's English is very good.
