Andrei - Private Guide in Bucharest
Customized tours. Hotel accommodation at travel agent rates.
Languages: English, Italian, German, French
We carefully design and run all our tours, first hand. Contrary to the belief "if it's a private tour it then should be expensive", we simply offer the best value for money at affordable prices.
With over 25 years of real expertise in private tours, we are proud to offer uncommon, exclusive cultural connections and insights into a relatively unknown part of Europe which is now being rediscovered. Meeting with local people and learning about their lifes, the hands-on activities, the off-the-beaten track sights, the visits to local colorful markets, meeting with Gypsies, learning about life in Communism and witnessing the changes, as well as the handicraft demonstrations and the exclusively organized folklore performances, are part of our programs.
We take great pride in our interaction with the locals, witness of daily life and home hosted experiences which are best way for an authentic cultural interchange.
Creativity and Customization are our hallmarks. Most of the journeys we run are based on customized itineraries.
Our tours are all designed based on your budget, particular interests and the number of days allowed for each trip. We always come up with suggestions and ideas as of what is available and worth seeing and doing. Even later, while on tour you will have the flexibility to make changes in the daily program if you wish to. We are your actual tour designer and operator.
We will work on it until we reach the perfect itinerary for you.
Our groups are limited to eight participants. Particularly our best selling small group tour
While they are all licensed and speak excellent English, their mission is to offer an ”insider's perspective” on the places you are visiting. For instance, *life under Communism* is one of the most interesting topics and they are all able to develop on this as they lived through it. We only work with hand picked, experienced and resourceful guides having a deep knowledge of the country, history, architecture and local customs. We feel sure that you will enjoy their company and benefit from their knowledge. All our driving tour guides have a clean driving record.
Are mostly from North America, Australia and South East Asia and come from every walk of life. Most are retired but well traveled and having a particular interest in this part of the World.
For many years we are enjoying excellent tour reviews. We have consulted for both Frommer's and Fodor's. Our recent Travel Channel interview as well as the many travel articles over the past years such as in International Travel News Magazine, Sunday Morning Herald or Travel Weekly, stand proof of the quality we like to offer.
