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.
