Explore the capital’s most important sights plus hidden treasures, from medieval Old Town to Communist relics and tucked-away Bohemian courtyards. Travel by foot and by city tram, stopping at markets and vendors along the way to sample typical Romanian food.

Highlights
  • Explore Bucharest’s culture and cuisine on a combo walking and food tour
  • Trace Romanian history, from medieval times to the Communist era
  • Sample typical Romanian food and drink along the way
  • Visit a popular “peasant” market and stop for snacks in a Bohemian garden
What to Expect
Begin in Revolution Square, a perfect place for a lesson in modern Romanian history, including the 1989 people’s uprising. Follow the grand boulevard of Victory Avenue, passing landmarks, such as the Kretzulescu Church, and hearing more local lore along the way. Journey back to medieval Europe inside the well-preserved Old Town, once an important crossroads between Europe and the Ottoman Empire. Sink your teeth into a soft pretzel (corvig) before exploring vampire legends at the former palace of Dracula inspiration Vlad Tepes. Rest and refuel in the garden of a turn-of-the-century townhouse with a spread of typical Romanian specialties, such as goat cheese, cured meat, freshly baked bread, spring onions, and local craft beer. Walk it off with a tour of lovely Mantuleasa, a former Jewish quarter, and the old Armenian district while learning about life in 19th-century and interwar Bucharest. Sip a cold Romanian weissbier and then see how locals get around with a ride on the public tram down Mosilor Street past Communist-era remnants. Get off near Obor Market for a tasting tour. Browse colorful vendor stalls and sample Romanian brandy (palinca), cheese, mici (skinless sausages), and a fresh Wallachian doughnut to finish on a sweet note.

"Hello again! And congratulations for going through the whole 8 hours of walking and me talking all the time :) This is our longest tour and even though there are breaks for food and refreshments, not many of our guests have the endurance to finish it. It makes me very happy to read that you enjoyed the experience and the information provided. We are always happy to deal with guests like you, who are genuily interested in the cultural complexities Bucharest has to offer. It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope we'll meet again in the future. Until then, good luck with your projects and pleasant journeys! All the best from Bucharest! Andrei & Andrei"

"Ciao Enrico! Thank you so much for taking time to write this review, it means a lot! I am glad i managed to spread the bug & the love for Bucharest. I am also grateful that you were so curious and attentive to my city. Total Bucharest is a great tour to take when you don’t have so much time, but are interested enough to explore for half a day. Do try Bucharest in summery-spring, Enrico, it’s a different story! Hugs, Andra"
