Exclusive private tour combining local food experience with a walking tour of central Bucharest and the Old Town


I invite you to this excellent food & culture tour, perfect for those seeking to experience the local culture through typical local food, while discovering some of Bucharest's major sights and landmarks.

The different stops will take you around the central area of the city that includes the enticing Old Town. Along the way we stop by to a bakery, visit Bucharest's largest marketplace - chance to mingle with local vendors and feel the atmosphere - colors, smells, noise. End up the tour with a stroll around and lunch to a fine Romanian restaurant in the Old Town.

If you like coffee there are great little cafes where we may have a break over a cup of delicious coffee. Wine lovers may enjoy a glass of good Romanian wine with their food, at the restaurant.

What you can expect:

We start the tour from Bucharest's central area, with a little walk around to see some major historical and cultural landmarks, and have our first stop to an artisan bakery to sample typical Romanian savory or sweet pastries -as you prefer.

A Recent Review of this tour

Cristina provided us with tremendous insights about this city and the country that can only be told by someone who has lived through the time of communism as an adult and the changes that have occurred since its fall. She is very knowledgeable and was able to tailor our tour to suit our interests and the added challenge of my spouse's use of crutches due to a recent injury. We highly recommend Cristina if you want to truly know the Bucharest of today and it's history.
