This was not a city tour, but just a person who drove me from place to place. My driver was super polite. He always held the door open and closed it for me. We started by driving around the Parliament Building in Bucharest. Then he dropped me off, and I entered and signed up for the tour. They were expecting me. I waited an hour inside for the tour to begin with not much to do inside while waiting. The tour of the Parliament building was superb, but this had nothing to do with my signing up for this City Tour. I would have heard the same thing attending on my own. After the Parliament building my guide, who had waited in the parking lot, picked me up and drove me to see a church. Again he dropped me off, so I walked around on my own for a short time looking at the church and two other church buildings. Finally, my guide drove me to and from the Village Museum. I toured the Village Museum on my own as the driver stayed outside. This was not a City Tour, just a driver who took me to three places that I could easily have traveled to by walking and metro on my own. He was very nice, and he did answer a few of my questions. This tour was a huge disappointment as it cost a lot, and I could have done the same on my own for much much less money.
Eh, it was ok. Guide was a little stiff and non personal. He did give us some good info. The Parliment Palace was the highlight. The Village Museum was not as good as I thought. I did't see much of the city because I didn't have the views from the backseat of the car. A city map might have helped.
The tour gave me great insight into the city of Bucharest during a very short stay. The communication after booking was swift, friendly and precise through a phone call and text messaging, because I had booked it very short notice. The five star rating is very much earned by the tour guide Marius, who was not only very knowledgable, but also keen to understand what you are interested in and adjusting some elements of the tour according to your interest. Don't forget your passport. Visiting the megalomania of Ceausescu's palace which you need your passport for to enter is a very unique visit, even though it is certainly breathtaking how such a monster could be build in the 1980s... Bucharest is quite a unique place with some rough edges around a very interesting and in parts beautiful city. This tour gives you a very good introduction to further explorations.
