About the Tour

Discover a hidden world of palaces, elegance and intriguing stories with our passionate local guides. We will journey in time from the moment that Romania became a Monarchy to the dark times of communism and the bloody revolution. 

The monarchy shaped Bucharest in a unique way compared to any other city in Romania and today’s urban vibes are bringing it back to life. The “belle epoque” period is the most fascinating of all, bringing impressive architecture that should not be missed during your stay in Bucharest.

This was an excellent tour and I recommend you do it on a Saturday or Sunday night. This way you can enjoy the excitement of Calea Victoriei which turns into a walking street on the weekend. Our group, without the guide but with some recommendations, went out for beers after the tour which was great.

Our Guru Mara had an amazing amount of knowledge surrounding the topic of Communism and the Monarchy! Would definitely recommend if you would like to learn more about the City and get a locals point of view too.
