All about the history of Romania including Bucharest and not just the communism. Also a quick coffee stop half way through. I would highly recommend if you are even slightly curious.

Despite the cold, the rain and the wind, Tudor led us on a wonderful and informative tour of Bucharest. He combined storytelling, history and personal anecdotes to help us become familiar with the city and its people. Tudor also used visual aides and showed us books he recommended to continue our Romanian Education. My children (12 and 14) also found... More

I've taken quite a lot of free walking tours in different European cities; most of them were fun and informative, but Walkabout Free Walking Tour is definitely the most engaging and rewarding (free chocolate!) tour I've ever had! My guide, Anka, is a local and her enthusiasm for the tour and her passion for her city is truly contagious. She... More

I'm an avid believer in the concept of too based walking tours- I've done a few and they've all been great, much better than their set price counterparts. This was no exception. Despite being a horrible day our guide made the tour interesting and relevant. A true local so knew her stuff about Serbian history. Thoroughly recommended.

The one dry day this week attracted about 30 people onto this free tour of the Old Town. However, our guide coped well and kept us all together and we could all hear well. Starting in Unirii Square with an introduction to the history of that area and the Palace of the Parliament, we slowly worked our way through the... More

This is a 2.5 hour walking tour of Bucharest which travels through the ups and downs of Bucharest history. Anca was a fantastic, well informed and knowledgeable tour guide and also a proud Romanian. It was a pleasure to be in good company. Don't forget to give her a thoroughly deserved good tip.

I learned much about Bucharest from our tour guide. Sorry I didn't catch her name!! (But I went on the 6pm tour on Good Friday). But she tried to engage our group as much as possible on a cold day and her English was excellent.
