I really enjoyed this tour. It was in the evening and went into detail with how Romania was like during communism. What I enjoyed were also the stories about the kings of Romania. I had no idea there had been a kingdom in Romania before. All in all, a great way to spend over 2 hours in Bucharest and learn more about the city.

It was a great way to get to know the city and it's History. I had a vague idea about the history of the place, but after the tour I realized why the city is built in such a way and understood a bit more about the people and what they have been through. The tour guide (who's name I just forgot, sorry!) was very nice and knew pretty much everything we asked. Completely recommendable!

Constantine was an amazing guide! We met at the beautiful old theater of Romania and made our way to the infamous Parliament building. Constantine taught us about the history of Romania, but more importantly he shared his personal stories which really helped us understand the culture and country better. He has a great sense of humor and a wealth of information. Would definitely recommend Constantine and this tour to anyone visiting Bucharest. Thank you Constantine!
