Matthew , our guide was really informative and helpful I did think the organisation could have been better - we could not do the tour of the Catriceni palace as it clashed with our booking for the parliament palace tour -though we saw it from the outside , lunch did not seem to be planned in , we got info and a map for the Old Town where we were staying rather than a walk round with the guide ,and the description of the tour that said you could stop anywhere to take photos ( too much traffic) and could tailor the tour to suit your wishes was misleading That said we thought we saw a lot of Bucarest and learned a lot (I Tried to phone and e mail the tour company the evening before to confirm pick up but got no response. The guide was there promptly and there was just the 2 of us on the tour which great
The guide was very knowledgeable and her information was extensive. She was a able to explain the contemporary architecture and city features to the historical foundations of the Bucharest and Romania holistically. We saw the sights and ate traditional Romanian food, which only enhanced our Romanian experience both historically and culinarily.
All the sites were very beautiful and very much worth the visit. Be aware though that the itinerary is not completely as described. The time was not allocated well (and traffic made it worse). We missed visiting the upper floor of Peles Castle as well as the Sinaia Monastery and the Azuga winery. The Transfagarasan Highway was also skipped.
Andra was the perfect guide, knowledgeable, personable, and we listened entranced to her stories of Romanian history. We discovered amazing places which we would not have discovered by ourselves and finally had lunch in a tranquil restaurant away from hustle and bustle! Highly recommended
Monica was our guide and she was amazing. So knowledgeable and friendly throughout and treated us to a lovely traditional meal at the end. This was our first day in the city and was the perfect start to our trip. Would recommend this tour with Urban Adventures.
