Enjoy the capital of Romania in a comfortable way and experience real traditional home-made cooking

Experience the perfect way to see the Paris of the Balkans! Relax and enjoy this 4-hour private tour around Romania's capital in a comfortable BMW 5 series. Perfect for people that want to get an overview of the city, getting to know it better, so planning for the next days will be easy, but also for people that have just a few hours to visit and want to make the most of it. We will see dozens of land marks of the city, but also some hidden gems.

After the city tour, experience real traditional home-made cooking and drinks just for you! See the whole process of cooking Romanian dishes and even take part in it if you want! After that, of course, feast upon the result and enjoy a variety of local wines and home-made spirits!

To book this tour, you must provide a kitchen where the whole process can take place.


We will see and discuss dozens of interest points (including but not limited to the Revolution Square, Romanian Athenaeum, People's Palace, Ceausescu's residence, etc. ) with several planned stops and also any stop on request. After the city tour, we will enjoy the experience of real traditional Romanian home-made cooking and then, of course, enjoying lavish dishes and drinks!

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 Lei - The tour can be done with no other expenses as there are no entrances done (except special requests that I am happy to honor).
The local payments would be only for food, snacks or refreshments.
