Free Tour: Old Town and Parliament

  • Bucharest
  • Available in: Spanish, English

About the tour

We start off in front of the Palace of the Parliament, revealing its story and introducing our guests to the general history of Romania. Then, we go on the cross Dâmbovița river, not forgetting to mention the most interesting facts about it and about the Palace of Justice that proudly rises on one of the river banks.

We continue our Bucharest free tour by entering the Old Town, visiting Stavropoleos Monastery, learning the story behind the famous Caru cu Bere restaurant, walking down Victoriei Avenue right before entering Macca Villacrosse passage – a gorgeous peaceful place during the morning that comes alive at night when the bars roam with locals.

After seeing the grandeur of the building where the National Bank of Romania is, we stop by Carturesti Carusel to see what used to be this building before becoming the most instagramable spot of the city! We go on to find out how the communist era affected the general look of Bucharest. Our next stop is dedicated to describing all of the most delicious Romanian dishes – traditions and superstitions included! What would a free tour be without a more than 200 years old inn and the oldest standing church of the city? Probably not as good, that’s why we stop at Manuc’s Inn and Saint Anthony’s Church.

After telling the 100% real story of the ruler that inspired Dracula’s legend, we continue towards Rome’s symbol, describing how the Romanian people formed, we visit the Kilometer Zero monument and we find out its interesting history before finishing a two hours and a half walk in University’s Square where we tell the story of the Communist regime fall. Don’t worry; our final stop is five minutes away of restaurants and bars, just in case you will want to have lunch right after tour!

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Andrade, nuestra guía, empatizó mucho con el grupo y nos hizo un tour muy interesante y muy bien explicado. Educada, amable, culta y explícita. Un acierto sin duda.

El guia Vlad ha hecho una fantástica explicación de la ciudad y de su historia. También nos ha indicado sitios donde comer platos típicos del país.

Coincidimos con María y ha sido un verdadero lujo. Simpática, atenta y con unas explicaciones muy detalladas. Además, nos ha contado un montón de información curiosa sobre tradiciones y 'rituales' de Bucarest.
