What you'll do

This experience is for the curious, the bold, and the spirited. We'll depart from the Old Town via the subway to visit one of the oldest and most beautiful cemeteries in town. It’s basically an open air museum similar to the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris or London's Highgate Cemetery. Enchanted by the eerie stories, we’ll take a turn through a lively park unknown to many tourists but cherished by the locals. We'll pop into the oldest train station in Romania, and check out a former KGB headquarters. It will then be time to take a break at a past factory that has now become a cultural hub—a perfect spot for quirky souvenirs and a sound meal. Lastly, you'll be shown a secret passage to an old Mahalla, the term for "neighborhood" used in many languages and cultures.

Mircea

Local Hosts turns tourists into locals and locals into tourists. We know that during a tour it's best to stop for refreshments and quick bites! Thus, we've included lunch to all our tours. Mircea, Alina, Tudi, or Diana, our group of local hosts, will have the pleasure of showing you around this crazy city we live in. Great experiences are not built on big data, but on the small, spontaneous details that make a city feel alive and be remembered. We want to click with our guests and deliver a true offline experience. Also, being the good hosts that we are, we spice up all our experience with local food, drinks, and cool links. We look forward to welcoming you to the Good, the Bad - and if we may - the Tasty in Bucharest. Join us for a different experience in small groups and off the beaten path views!
