I'm a licensed tour guide in Bucharest, born and bred here. My tours focus on historical facts, peculiar trivia, fun stories and personal experience. My absolute favorite activity is showing people this overlooked corner of the world. I've been a tour guide for almost six years and I've met thousands of tourists. The experience that I've acquired over the years helps me provide a top notch experience for tourists.
