I am a licenced tourism guide living in Bucharest, with a deep love for my beautiful city and its stories. I like sharing these stories, and I like to see how happy people are, when they discover this beautiful, complicated and interesting city. My passions include traveling, reading, painting, and talking about every single thing in the known Universe. I studied Biology and I have a master degree in Neuroscience, but my greatest joy was to travel, so I took all possible classes of tourism for a couple of years, in which I took all licences required. At the end of these classes, it was clear for me that this is what I want to do: travel, share my passion, talking about my beautiful city with all the people that want to see and get to know it. Bucharest is gorgeous for many reasons: - it has an interesting, complicated and fascinating history - it has many architectural styles, that can remind you of Paris, Vienna or Moscow - it has amazing arts museums, palaces and parks - its night life is quite thrilling - it`s cheaper than most other European capitals. I love to talk about all of these aspects, to share the stories of the beutiful buildings, and to enjoy a nice walk with people from all over the world.

About the tour

Bucharest, once known as "Little Paris”, has many attractions to offer. Starting with Dracula's Castle in the center of the Old Town and ending up with huge communist palaces, there are hundreds of beautiful buildings to be seen and plenty of interesting stories to be heard.

I invite you to one of the most beautiful guided tours through Bucharest, held by me, a licensed tourism guide, in love with this beautiful city and its history and culture. As a bonus, I will show you the interiors of the buildings we will see in books and printed photographies.

A few of the attractions of this tour are:

- The old castle of Dracula

- Manuc's Inn

- The National Bank of Romania

- C.E.C. Palace

- Savropoleos Monastery

- The Memorial of the Rebirth

- The Royal Palace

- The University Library

- The Romanian Athenaeum.

We will see more on the tour, and we will get to know so many more than just these places. I invite you to discover the best of Bucharest with me.

Although the site allows to book only 5 spots, I can held the tour with 10-15 people at a time, asoyou can ask me in a message if you can join along a tour that appears fully booked on GuruWalk.

Remember that this is a free tour, and the recommended support for the guide is 10 euros.

We were very lucky to get the lovely Daniela to ourselves as our personal guide to the architecture and history of Bucharest. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the city was obvious at all times and she kept us interested throughout with her humour and stories concerning the various areas we visited. Our understanding of the City and its often turbulent past is now greatly enhanced and we will return home with a much better understanding of Bucharest and the country as a whole. I would definitely recommend a guru tour as like us you have probably passed numerous buildings which mean little to you until the history is explained by a guide such as Daniel.

Uno de los mejores tours que hemos hecho. Hemos aprendido muchísimo y nos hemos divertido mucho.

Además de ser súper simpática, se nota que sabe muchísimo, nos ha sabido contestar a nuestras dudas.

Además nos ha dado muchas pistas para disfrutar de la ciudad.

Sin duda volveríamos a coger un tour con ella. 1000% recomendable.
