A panoramic tour of Bucharest:
Another option is a panoramic Bucharest tour by car combined with either a walking tour in the areas inaccessible by car, or a visit of the well-known tourist attractions. Usually, during these routes you will stop to visit the Village Museum, the Romanian Athenaeum, the Parliament Palace and other well-known attractions.
A thematic or cultural Bucharest tour:
Themed tours in Bucharest are in high demand among visitors of this city once called Little Paris. Whether it’s a culinary tour in Bucharest, a communist tour or another interesting topic, they are meant to show you another face of the city. These can be done wither walking or by car depending on how far the included attractions are.
Tips & trick for a memorable guided tour in Bucharest:
- Make sure that your guide is authorized to do this, and possibly seek feedback on past experiences.
- Agree from the beginning what stops you will make on the route, what you will visit, if the entrance fee is included in the ticket price and what documents you need at the entrance. For example, to visit the Palace of Parliament you need an identity card or passport.
- Even if you spend only a few hours in the company of the guide, ask him as many recommendations about the city as possible: delicious restaurants, shopping places and bars where you can have fun in Bucharest. You can use these recommendations if you spend more time in the city.
