I really enjoyed the story of Bucharest tour. Elena was so enthusiastic and interesting to listen to that the time went like that. I learnt alot about Bucharest and the history and we she was very engaging to the entire group. We walked around some interesting places. In the middle of the tour we had a coffee break which was nice to sit down and talk to each other in the group. She gave many tips on places to eat, drink and places to see. This is a must do tour in Bucharest that you will really enjoy.

Daniel was very informed on the city and had the best way of communicating the history infused with a good dose of humour. I will recommend him and guruwalk to anyone hoping to visit the city of Bucharest and gain a broad but informed history.
