***Best of Bucharest*** – Full Day Private Bucharest City Tour (7-8 hrs)

The most complete and substantial day-long Bucharest City Tour
This is a comprehensive, substantial Bucharest tour that takes you through the city’s past and recent history, and to all relevant monuments and sights. The tour is a combined walking and sightseeing tour, with a walk around the downtown and transfers by car.
You will be provided with plenty of insight into Romanian history (including communist and recent history) and local culture. Refreshing break at one of the cafés or restaurants in the Old Town, perfect occasion for more discussions and people-watching.

NOTE: Both this full-day Bucharest City Tour and the Half Day Bucharest City Tour are flexible and try to cover as much as possible in the available time, considering also your interests, the weather etc. As we meet and discuss and I get to know you I will try to adapt the tour for you. Basically we visit the main areas, the most important places in Bucharest. The difference is that the extended tour allows more time for explanations/talks and to take in the sights, and we will have more time to enjoy the Old Town, Bucharest’s oldest district.

Tour type: city tour, cultural, heritage
