Overview
Pair Romania’s tumultuous history with the best bites in Bucharest on this full-day outing that combines two popular tours. 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.

I just realized I failed to submit a review of our walking tour in early October so this is coming in a month late. For our group of 14 we booked a private "Total Bucharest Tour” which was a combination of their two most popular tours (Bohemian and Discovery). While we

"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"
