Alina is a sophisticated intellectual and a spirited companion. As a world traveler, I would rate Alina as a top guide: smart, witty, sensitive, flexible, contemporary with comprehensive knowledge of architecture, cultural history, sociology, economic and political currents- she is fast, charming, and lovely. Alina guided me through historic and contemporary Bucharest, suggested art and theatre, private tours to obscure sights, discerned my personal fascinations and even found a place to swim. SUPERB!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bill, Thank you very much for the kindest words about our Bucharest private tour, it was a pleasure to welcome you to Bucharest and share with you the best of our history and culture! Best wishes from sunny Bucharest, Alina B.

I had hopes for this experience. Not only were they fulfilled but thoroughly exceeded. Alina made us feel like old friends with whom she was sharing her most personal observations of her home,her city and her country. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of Bucharest from architecture,lifestyle to gourmet eating. She is funny. She is sensitive to the needs of the group and to each individual. Take advantage of the opportunity to spend time with the best guide I have ever experienced. You will not regret it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sidney, Thank you from the heart for your wonderful review of our Hidden Bucharest tour! It was a pleasure to welcome you to my home town and to share its best hidden spots! Looking forward to your next visit to Romania, all the best from Bucharest!

Alina's tour was everything it promised to be and more. Alina herself was very prompt, friendly and had an excellent sense of humour. She took us to some excellent "off the beaten track" places that we wouldn't have realised existed (hidden cafes, courtyards and various sights) as well as taking us in to some places we wouldn't have known you could enter (such as the Opera hall). I highly recommend her for any tour as she was superb.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Davy! It was lovely to welcome you to Bucharest and hope this is the first of your holidays in Romania! Best wishes from Bucharest!

Alina is an absolute treasure. Lively and animated with a vast knowledge, she made a really great tour. She customised it perfectly and kept our interest the entire time. Her restaurant recommendations were superb and she was more than helpful sorting out my train tickets. I totally recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dave, thank you and the whole group for two lovely tours of Bucharest! I enjoyed very much the time we spent together exploring the best of sights and the charming hidden spots of my home town!
