A Recent Review of this tour

Alina worked with our schedule to make the most of the short time we had available. She gave a lovely, easy paced walking tour of the old city while including some history of Bucharest and Romania as well as sharing some delightful anecdotes. She even negotiated the cab fare for us back to our hotel. Her English is impeccable. Alina provided us with a perfect overview . We truly enjoyed her tour.
