I had two tours Alina, a five hour walking tour and a full day tour of the Bend , both were extremely informative, well organized, and professionally conducted . I can not recommend Alina any higher as a guide. Our group is fairly well traveled, and as a whole, we agreed she was outstanding. The groups interest was history of the country as well as the personal experiences of our guide, and Alina fulfilled our interests and beyond with her in depth knowledge of Hungary's history.

Alina is the consummate professional, going above and beyond to satisfy requests no matter how far afield they may be from normal tour expectations. She was extremely gracious and adaptable to our changing situation due to a flight delay. Her English is perfect and she is an absolute delight to work with. I highly recommend spending the day with Alina if your travels take you to Bucharest.

Alina was terrific. Our walk with her was one of the highlights of our trip. She was very knowledgeable about Bucharest and showed us neighborhoods, street art, shops and cafes that we would not have found on our own. Her sociology background helped us understand the city better. She was professional and passionate about Bucharest. She has a great rapport with people and was able to get us in to a rehearsal at the Athenian theatre that was closed to the public. I highly recommend Alina as a tour guide!

Alina was the best guide we had on this vacation. She was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. Excellent communications skills. She was also very flexible in developing a custom tour especially since it rain the whole day. She kept us dry and was able to see everything that we wanted to see. She also escorted us through the lines at the Parliament tour which helped a lot. In addition she did not give us her personal view on the political climate but just the facts. Highly recommend using Alina.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear William, Thank you and your lovely group for a beautiful day visiting Bucharest together! Such a pleasure to welcome you to town and tailor a tour to fit your interests and rhythm. Hoping to get the chance to welcome you back to Bucharest, until then: Best wishes from Bucharest, Alina B.
We were very fortunate to have found Alina! and that she was so flexible and accommodating. We did not do any of Alina's regular tours but had an airport pick-up, with a city overview on the ride in. We were dropped off at our Hotel, and then with Alina we set off on a walking tour of the area, where she pointed out not only all the must see sights in the neighborhood but also restaurants, shopping areas money exchange and all the things we needed to make the next few days in Bucharest a pleasure.

An angelic experience provided by Alina during our three day stop over in Bucharest. The twelve hours difference in time zones was alleviated by her gentle knowledge and guidance as we acclimated to the beautiful city she so obviously loves. Alina picked us up and gently guided into her city and our holiday with the touch of an angel. Beautiful music, interesting architecture , great food. Honesty and superb knowledge. Thanks again Alina

We had a wonderful day with Alina. She has a very pleasant personality and speaks flawless English. We toured Bucharest by foot for 4 hours and came away with a much better appreciation of the city, it's history, and the current daily life of Romanians. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter and Jill I am looking forward to your next visit in Romania in Constanta!

My wife and I asked for the tourist highlights and the non-tourist get-to-know-the-real-Romanians tour. Alina did both with a light hearted articulate professional approach. Her communications skills were superlative. She was positive, flexible and a true ambassador for Bucharest and her country. The two days we spent with her was a very informative, interesting and fun time. Fees were reasonable. She was prompt on the start times and very flexible on the wrap-ups. Bruce and Pat
