Quality Verified Registered on May 21, 2018

Unbelievable Bucharest started as a family business, as we wanted to share our passion for the city, being born and raised here: an aunt and a nephew. Since then, a lot more guides joined us, all of them with the same love for the city. We like to tell stories, jokes, history, traditions and never forget that our tourists are actually our extended family!

Tour description

Welcome to Romania, a young country that was once a monarchy and a communist country and had its share of dictators in both political regimes. The free tour of Bucharest introduces you to the changes that appeared in the history of the country from the first kingdom in this territory: Dacia, to post-communist Romania. The tour focuses on Avenida de la Victoria, the first main route in the city since the 17th century and you will see Parisian-inspired buildings that show the bohemian part of our city and also explain why it was called in the past “the little Paris". The free tour of Bucharest begins in the University Square at the statue of the first man who dared to unify all the Romanian countries in 1600, fighting against great powers such as the Ottoman Empire. We will continue to see the Military Circle and Capsa, the oldest bakery in the city, an old princely court now transformed into a theater, the Telephone Palace, Bucharest's first skyscraper, the Royal Palace, now the National Museum of Art and the Romanian Museum . Athenaeum, a wonderful work of art. The free tour of Bucharest will end in the Revolution Square with the story of the last dictator: the communist Nicolae Ceausescu.

This was the second tour we had taken with the same guide. It was good to hear about the history of the city. Daniela is very professional, friendly and nice. We got to know a lot of information about the city. As a conclusion, I would definitely recommend this tour. In just few hours you get to know a lot of useful information that would take you a lot more time if you would be doing the research by yourself. Amazing!
