Tour description

During this experience, we will be exploring Bucharest and its history, while stopping at some of the best and most interesting bars the city has to offer.

From rooftop bars to local pubs and the best beer spots in Bucharest, we will cover all types of awesome places.

As we walk between locations I will make sure to: inform you of the history of the city, point out the most popular bars/cafes/restaurants/hang-out spots, and tell you as many interesting facts about the Romanian lifestyle as possible.

During this experience, we will be covering all the important touristic attractions, the most photogenic spots, the most beautiful streets and squares, and some of the hidden gems located in the heart of Bucharest.

On this tour we will be trying local (all produced in Romania, and most of them produced especially for the locations we will be stopping at) alcoholic beverages such as:
- Brandy (Palinca)
- Cherry Liquor (Visinata)
- Wine
- Beer
+Traditional Snacks and other optional drinks

The cost of the drinks that we will be trying along the way is around 17EUR/80RON (NOT INCLUDED). You do not need any cash along the way, as card is accepted in all of the locations we will be stopping in.

Drinking at any/all stops is not mandatory, just recommended.

PS: In case GuruWalk shows you that there are no more places available for a certain tour, you can still attend without booking through the website. Just send me a message so I know you will be joining and I will see you at 18.30 in front of Manuc's Inn Restaurant (Hanul Lui Manuc).

Andrei is a great guide and guy, we had a great night learning some romanian history while visiting a few selected in the old town for local tastes of alcohol we probably would have missed if not for the tour. The tour is a great way to meet new friends from across the world. We recommend this tour if you are looking for a night out in Bukarest than can end however you want it too! Thank you Andrei🫶

Just awesome! Andrei è stato impeccabile, ci ha catturato sin dall'inizio grazie al suo piccolo omaggio, e non ha mai perso l'attenzione del gruppo dando vita ad un perfetta alternanza di pillole storiche, spostamenti, battute, interazioni con il gruppo e bevute nei locali. Se penso a come una guida turistica dovrebbe essere lui ne è il perfetto prototipo. 5/5 e lode

Wasn’t really sure what to expect from the tour, but had such a good time. Visiting the bars was really chilled, we weren’t rushed at all and was really nice to get to know the other people on the tour during this time. Andrei was brilliant, he was very informative and knowledgeable. He gave us tips and recommendations too so that was great. Would definitely recommend this tour as a real good way to start your evening out as well.
