Exclusive private tour combining delicious 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 foodies and 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 visit at least a bakery and a deli store, and have lunch to a fine Romanian restaurant, where you will have staple Romanian foods/dishes. Expect the best quality - I only pick the finest locations so you can experience local food at its best - artisan bakeries, handcrafted delis, locally grown food etc.
If you love coffee I will be happy to have a relaxing break over a cup of delicious coffee - a true cultural experience in Bucharest. Wine lovers may enjoy a glass of good Romanian wine with their food, at the restaurant.
This is ideally a walking tour (around 3 km or 2 miles), but if you prefer using a vehicle just let me know, I can easily adapt the tour for you.
What you can expect:
We start the tour from a busy commercial central district, and have our first stop to an artisan bakery to sample Romanian savory pastries. Next, visit a family-run delicatessen store and taste fine cheese, charcuterie and traditional treats. Learn about typical local food, Romanian cuisine and seasonal staple foods.
Then, we have a walk through central Bucharest, passing some of the major historical and cultural landmarks, and I will point out the important sites, architectural highlights and local hot spots.
End up the tour with a leisure stroll around the pedestrian Old Town, Bucharest's entertainment and dining hub packed with cafes, pubs and restaurants, where we will enjoy lunch to a local fine restaurant. Discover some more landmarks and get tips for the best places and local favorite hot spots.

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.
