Hello everyone, 'salut'! My name is Diana and I am a professional tour guide. I have a BA English and French degree, over 10 years experience in teaching and translating. I have been working as a full-time tour guide since 2017, accompanying foreign and Romanian tourists across Romania and abroad. I live in Brasov and I am fond of the local history and culture. With me you will explore the city like a local, getting off the tourist-beaten tracks but without missing the main attractions, thus saving precious time and energy. I will show you the most interesting corners of the old town of Brasov, the best places to hang out as well as the finest pubs and restaurants. You will also have the opportunity to see some hidden gems that you will not find in any travel book.. Would you like to explore Brasov but you cannot join my tour or you want to do/see something particular? Please feel free to tell me, you will have all the support you need. In case you want to visit the region, I can also arrange some tours for you but you need to notify me in advance. I am looking forward to meeting you, Diana, Your guru and friend in Brasov :)

About the tour

More than just a walking tour! It is a tour especially designed for the travellers who do not just want to see the sights but truly experience the destination. It includes the “must sees” of the old city of Brașov but also a ”special” place with a great view.

The tour runs with no more than 10 people, for you to have the opportunity for a more in depth and intimate touring experience and see places that larger groups can't... Get off the beaten track to enjoy authentic local interaction and truly understand Brasov and Romania!

BONUS: guided visit of the Black Church (entrance ticket not included)

IMPORTANT: It is a BOOKING-BASED tour.

For logistical reasons, please book the tour at least twelve hours before the tour starts.

My groups are small and intimitate so the sooner you save your place, the better...

In case of groups larger than 10 people, please warn me and the tour will run only for you (no additional cost). I have had very nice experiences with large families, including kids or large groups of students.

Please be kind to warn me if you cannot show up, you might be the only one who has booked the tour..

The tour starts at the fountain in the Council Square, the heart of the charming medieval Brasov where history harmoniously blends with modern style.

The two-hour free walking tour of the old city of Brasov includes the top emblematic places:

- The Council Square - the most popular place in Brasov with lots of nice cafes, restaurants and pubs

- The Council House (outside) - the old townhall of Brasov

- The Black Church - the largest gothic church in South - Eastern Europe, the full entrance ticket costs 12 lei

- The Rope Street - the third narrowest street in Europe

- Catherine Gate - the oldest medieval gate in Brasov, unique in Romania

- Schei Gate - a 9-century old triumphal arch

- the White and Black Tower (in the distance)

- The Weavers bastion (outside)- the best preserved part of Brasov's fortifications

- A scenic walk

Do you know that Brasov was founded more than 800 years ago?

What dark secrets does medieval Brasov hide?

What about Count Dracula's legend and his connection with Brasov?

What was life like in Brasov and Romania during communism?

Here are just some of the questions we are going to answer together during the tour.

On the way back to the Council Square we shall talk about the Romanian traditional dishes and you will taste some Romanian candies, a brand born in communism. You will also find out about the best restaurants and pubs, the local attractions and get any assistance you might need,

At the end of the tour you will know why everybody who visits Brasov falls in love with my wonderful city!

Are you coming?

I will be right here, waiting for you!
