Full description
This 2-hour program begins with a comfortable ride from your Bucharest accommodation to the astonishing Palace of the Parliament. Along the way you’ll be able to take in some of the city’s main attractions. A professional driver will drop you off in front of the building and provide you with your entrance ticket. You’ll begin the visit accompanied by a guide from the Palace of the Parliament. The massive building still raises controversy even 27 years after the construction began. More than a symbol of the Ceausescu era, the edifice stands today as a reminder of the price Romanian people had to pay to satisfy the selfish whims of the dictator and his wife. The estimated cost of the building was almost €4 billion. Built and furnished exclusively with Romanian materials, the palace reflects the work of the country's best artisans. A guided tour takes visitors through a small section of dazzling rooms, huge halls and quarters used by the Senate (when the Senate is not in session). The interior is a luxurious display of crystal chandeliers, mosaics, oak paneling, marble, gold leaves, stained-glass windows, and floors covered with rich carpets.

On time, friendly, informative guide, thank you.

Florian was a super nice guy, very helpful and informative. On time. We still aren't sure if we actually needed someone to help us. We could have walked to the palace, and if we had an international phone, could we have booked a ticket directly 24 hours ahead of time? The Palace does not have clear information, but Florian was delightful Thank you.

The driver was excellent and the tour good.

the People's Palace is an enormous piece of beautiful architecture which should be of interest to most tourist. There should be a word of caution for people with mobility issues as the number of stairs (no lifts) could be daunting. Overall the experience was excellent although I did have some concerns about safety for my partner (with a mobility issue) as there were cables strung through some rooms without adequate safety precautions.

A quite comfortable way to visit the Parliament because the agency is responsible for paperwork and bureaucracy, which separately is quite hard, quite strict and excessive protocol. In my case, my collection was very timely and everything was well explained and attentive. He arrived before the time and the guide took care of all the paperwork at the entrance. Then the visit itself is highly recommended. I recommend this service as it removes you from bureaucracy.
