The world without Bucharest
Dear Traveler, If you are reading this you are probably on your way to or you are already in Bucharest. As you, I am a traveler and I love so much to travel that in 2017, I've decided to change my job and to transform my passion for travelling into a new career. You know what Ibn Battuta said about traveling: it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller! This is what happened to me too as, since 2018, I am a tour guide in my hometown, București. I will offer you a unique and colorful experience with many stories, presenting you the history of Romania since Ancient Times to the present day, sharing with you my childhood memories from the Golden Age – The Communism period, telling you all kinds of anecdotes from the city's life, showing you hidden gems, recommending you my favorite places, giving insight tips where to go, what to do not only in Bucharest but also in Romania. During the tour, we will cover architecture, education, health care system, economy, religion and any other aspect of the social life you might be interested about. It will be my great pleasure to guide you in time and space inside (what I call) the City of Joy! Please join me and you will definitely experience a joyful moment in my hometown! A big happy smile, Daniela P.S. Happiness in the Heart is Joy on the Way!
Bohemian quarters, food & market tour
Ours will be a cultural excursion set around good food, and architecture — just as any food tour should be! I will first introduce you to two of my favorite neighborhoods: The Armenian Quarter and the Jewish Quarter. This area simply screams Bucharest with its multi-cultural history, amazing hidden gardens, and 19th century eclectic architecture. We'll make several stops on the way, including an achingly cool ruin bar for a Romanian platter with a story to tell. We may suggest some great Romanian Craft beer for you to get alongside this spread or traditional appetizers. And because the best way to know a city is through the belly, we'll hop on a vintage tram and journey to the city's liveliest market: Obor. Well hidden inside a brutal communist neighborhood, surrounded by utopian blocks of flats, this very old market truly feeds the soul and gut of Bucharest. Someone told me once that beer makes history better, that's why we'll start our exploring at the nice people of Terasa Obor to get a few tasty and very famous "mici"- Romania's proud meaty contribution to the world of mouthwatering street-food. Vegetarians will not be disappointed either as local cheeses and fresh vegetables will complete this rustic feast. Other things to note Please let me know of any dietary restrictions at the time of booking. Check up on the meeting point before the tour, or else write or call and please be on time. Don't hold back with your questions:)
Life in Communism
During this 3 hours walking tour on the streets of Bucharest, you will see how the years Romania spent under the Communist regime changed its architecture, its people and most importantly, its present. We will go through all the major changes Communism brought to this country and to this city, including but not limited to: nationalization, Secret Police, demolitions, etc. We will see around 15 objectives, each of them marking a specific moment/change during the Communist regime timeline. We will end the tour in the Revolution Square. This tour is great for groups and teams!
Bucharest Pub Crawl in the Old Town area
A great way of diving into the local nightlife of Bucharest is by joining the most popular Pub Crawl in the Old Town area. We'll visit four unique venues each Saturday, in the Old Town area, with a crescendo-planned tour. A local experience that promises to be both fun and insightful, off the beaten touristic path. Starting in a social bar or pub where the guests can meet each other, continuing to a fancy social venue, moving to a buzzing party venue and ending in a big club, the group will have a broad view of the local nightlife by the end of the night. During the tour, we may experience karaoke singing, live bands, social games, special DJ sets and even special events for holidays. Each pub crawl promises tasty shots included in the package, booked tables, interactive guiding, photos and hints for enjoying Bucharest to its most. A must-try activity for solo travelers, couples and small group of friends. Surprises may be provided for birthdays or pre-wedding celebrations.
Life under Communism
In this 3-hour journey, you will learn about the major landmarks and events in the Communist history of Bucharest, the violent beginnings of the Communist regime, the nationalization and forced demolition of thousands of houses, the People's House (currently, the Palace of the Parliament), dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and his megalomania, and the bloody anti-Communist revolution of 1989. The experience tells the story of the conflict between two worlds -- a brutalized Bucharest under the Communist regime, and the peaceful and prosperous Bucharest of the interwar period. You will learn about why Bucharest is such a striking mix of very different architectural styles, how each regime has left its mark on the city, how the city looked, and what its inhabitants went through in their daily lives under Communism. You will re-live the emotions of the anti-Communist Revolution and the fall of the Iron Curtain. We'll explore: > Historic Cosbuc and Uranus neighborhoods > Antim Monastery, the Nuns' Convent > The Palace of the Parliament > The former Boulevard of the Victory of Socialism > Former headquarters of Securitate > Revolution Square. Great for groups, as well as for individual travelers.
