Description

Treat your taste buds to a journey through time on this tour of Bucharest's landmarks. Scope out must-see sites, discover how Romania's history has shaped its culinary traditions, and share a delicious meal at a lovely local restaurant.

Meet your guide in Revolution Square, the plaza where dictator Ceaușescu made an ill-advised rallying speech in 1989 to a crowd that quickly turned against him, launching the Romanian Revolution. Check out the former royal palace, the colonnaded facade of the Athenaeum concert hall, and the luxurious Athénée Palace hotel, a hub of espionage and intrigue during the inter-war period.

Fuel up for the rest of your tour with a covrig, a pretzel-like baked snack that's been a popular Romanian treat since medieval times, and head south along Victory Street, named to commemorate the 1877 War of Independence. Hear about the country's 3 distinct regions, and how Moldova, Transylvania, and Muntenia each retained their own customs, character, and cuisine.

Pass by landmarks like the Telephone Palace skyscraper and the stately Palace of the National Military Circle, admire the 18th-century Kretzulescu Church, and then wind your way through the passageways of the Old Town. Admire centuries-old architecture, and learn about various cultures' influences on locally loved dishes like Ottoman sarmale (cabbage rolls), Russian borscht and ciorba (sour soup), and Austro-Hungarian schnitzel.

Step into a quiet monastery courtyard, see Manuc's Inn—the oldest hotel in Bucharest—and snap photos of the second-largest building in the world at Ceaușescu's massive People's House. Wrap up your outing at a traditional haun, or inn, where you indulge in a 3-course meal of delicacies from various regions, all washed down by fine Romanian wines or locally brewed beer.

Andra, our guide, was amazing! She made us feel comfortable, encouraged our questions, explained a LOT of information in a way that was easy to understand and very entertaining, too. We really wanted to have an inside look on what it’s like to be Romanian, and she definitely gave us a beautiful, honest look. Everyone should be lucky enough to meet people like Andra, who are ambassadors for their homelands. I felt like I was talking to the daughter of a good friend, she was so personable!

My guide was excellent she was very informed on the history of Romaina and Bucharest including politics. The food was excellent, I had a glass of white wine that rivaled what I can get in California. I would recommend this if you want a quick immersions into Romania and a good lesson on Romanian food.

Our tour guide, Monica, was excellent. She was knowledgeable and pleasant. Lunch was delicious and we tried food we wouldn’t have based on her recommendation.
