The most complete and substantial day-long Bucharest City Tour

Best of Bucharest full day city tourOverview 

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. Mid-point lunch break, occasion for more discussion.

End up the tour with a walk in the pedestrian Old Town, hub of dining and clubbing in Bucharest, also home to more iconic landmarks.

NOTE: This full-day Bucharest City Tour is a mix of essential sightseeing and flexibility – all at your pace. We visit the key areas, the most important places in Bucharest, but as we meet and communicate, I also try to throw in things considering your interests/personality etc.
