With me you will explore the city like a local, getting off the tourist-beaten tracks but without missing the main attractions. You will also have the opportunity to see some hidden gems that you will not find in any travel book...

The most exciting part of the tour is a walk in the forest behind the medieval walls of the citadel of Brasov for you to enjoy a great panoramic view of the city. We shall enjoy together an interactive and fun tour, tailored to your needs and interests during two and a half unforgettable hours.

You will feel comfortable as my groups are small and intimitate and, very important, the tour takes place even if you are the only participant! You will also get all the assistance you may need prior to your arrival to Brasov.

So welcome to Brasov, a charming medieval city where history harmoniously blends with the modern.

The tour starts at the fountain in Piata Sfatului (Council Square), the heart of the old medieval Brasov.

Two-hour free walking tour of old city of Brasov includes the top key points: the Council Square, the Black Church, the Rope Stret, Catherine Gate, Schei Gate, the Black and White towers, Graft Bastion, the alley behind the city walls and a panoramic view of the most picturesque Romanian city!

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

Who were the Teutonic Kinghts and what does the word ''Transylvania'' mean?

What about the Romanian district Schei and the groups of 'Juni' (young men) who live outside the walls of the ancient fortress of Brasov?

What do the four small corner turrets on the Catherine gate mean?

What did life look like in medieval times in Brasov and what did the fortification system of the city consist of?

Here are just some of the questions we are going to answer together during the tour. Good answers will be rewarded...

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, too!

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!
