Explore the Old Town of Bucharest and enjoy the wonderful story of the city from the origins and up to present. Discover the Romanian gastronomic culture at one of the best restaurants in Bucharest.

Packed with a variety of bars and restaurants, the narrow streets of the Old Town were once the main commercial streets of the city. Their name is, in fact, the legacy of the past days, when merchants brought goods from all over the world and sold their products to the elites of the capital.

Learn more about the area and you will quickly find stunning attractions such as the Post Office Palace, the Old Royal Court, Manuc's Inn, Stavropoleos Church, the CEC Palace, the Macca – Villacroisse Passage, the Palace of the National Bank and Lipscani Street.

Experience the Romanian traditional gastronomy at Caru cu Bere restaurant, where you will enjoy a delicious full lunch. We strongly believe that food is one of the best ways how to connect with a new culture, so don't hesitate to try this local experience!

Client reviews: Bucharest Private Tours

Bucharest by foot walking tour

Georgiana from UK: Would highly recommend this experience! Toni Tatar is super knowledgeable, really nice and passionate about touring, as well as accommodating to our questions and interests I.e. we asked him to incorporate more details about communism in the tour, which he gladly did and adapted the route as well to this request. Also we got lots of other recommendations from him regarding other spots of interest in Bucharest (including restaurants for example) as well as for the rest of our trip within Romania. Really enjoyed it and would recommend it further for sure!

Alexander from Serbia: It was very Informative. The guide is friendly and precise. I recommend it for anyone. You should definitely try it when you come to Bucharest.

Jeroen from the Netherlands: „Great way to get to know Bucharest! hat a great way of walking through Bucharest. Manuela knows so many facts about the city and she takes the time to show them to you. We had a tour as a couple and she answered all if our questions. Tips for restaurants, places to visit and shops to go to, she knows it all. We highly recommend this tour to all people who visit Bucharest and want an honest opinion about the city and his residents.”

Sarah from UK: „A fabulous experience. Manuela presented the tour in a really friendly and informative manner. We learnt so much from her about Bucharest and it's history. She was also incredibly thoughtful taking care of my 83 year old father in the tour, incorporating small rest stops when needed and even joined us for a cup of tea. I would really recommend this tour as it leaves you feeling more connected to the city and it's wonderful culture. Thank you so much.”

Panoramic Tour of Bucharest

Jonathan from USA: Toni Tatar was a great tour guide! We went to all the amazing spots in Bucharest. Toni had so much knowledge about the whole town. He even hung out with us after the tour in old town Bucharest.

Maria from Cyprus: Superb!! Very well known guidance. TONI Tatar is a very educated and friendly guide. We saw many important landmarks and learned a lot. I truly recommend it. You will not regret it!

Pat from USA: „The tour is designed specifically for your needs. The pick up time was adjusted when my flight was delayed and I was able to indicate my special interests. The guides humored me and let me have a drink in a hookah bar because it was something I wanted to do. When I showed interest in a topic they were very knowledgeable and expanded on it.”

Lou from Australia: „I took this driving tour with Toni Tatar to get an over-view of Bucharest. Toni has very good knowledge, is easy to communicate with in English and is very helpful. The tour was made very easy, pleasant and informative. I would recommend this tour.”

The Fall of the Communism Tour

Linda D. from UK: „Myself and friend stayed at the Rembrandt hotel, were Toni Tatar very kindly organised two private tours one was a combined city tour with the Communist and the other to Bran castle, Pele's and Brasov, both were excellent, got to see and do everything we wanted, was tailored to our needs and lovely personal service from both Toni and Marius. Would highly recommend this company.”

Carmen S. from Australia: „We had no idea what to expect, but what we got was one of the highlights of the trip. Picture a vicious megalomaniac with access to unlimited budget. Add a wife who was worse than he was. Then follow their demise by starting at the place where he gave his final speech. Toni Tatar, our guide, brought a taping of the event and so standing where the protesters were made us feel like we were there. Next we saw their Spring Palace, with a tour of the tackiest 50 room mansion, which was where they lived. Finally, we went to the second largest building in the world, which they were building to replace the mansion for some $8 billion: eight stories above ground, six below of Stalinesque. It was so large, we couldn't get the entire building in our picture. Seeing the 1800 chandeliers (actually you only can see a fraction of them) the ballroom, their studies the size of basketball stadiums, and the auditorium for operas and speeches, gave you enough of a taste for what was planned. Toni had arranged it, took us to the locations, and gave us a background so we could understand what happened. He also helped us get to and from the airport and buy train tickets. We were impressed with his concern for the safety and well being of his clients. We give kudos to him and urge others to contact him if you want a top notch experience for a reasonable price.”

Relax & Wellness at Therme Spa Bucharest

Avengers74 from Naples: „A paradise! Fabulous place to spend a whole day in total relaxation away from the urban chaos. The outdoor swimming pool is beautiful, especially in winter because you could immerse yourself in the hot water surrounded by snow. The restaurant service is also excellent, good food at a good price. Too bad that with children under 16 you cannot access all areas.”
