Overview

Since the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989, many visitors to Romania are intrigued by the country’s recent Communist history.

It’s a respectful and authentic way to understand this tumultuous chapter in Eastern European history.

Best Communism History Tour In Bucharest!
Candace_D
, Nov 2021
If you want to get out of your hotel room in Bucharest and are also interested in history/politics - this is a GREAT tour. Romania has a fascinating history. Our guide, Marcel, was an absolutely a wonderful guide to us for the day! He was so polite and full of history/commentary about Romania itself! Was able to see different areas of the city I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. We also were able to see/ride the subway with a local who knew the ropes. I normally don’t ventured into underground Metros that I am not familiar with, but he made us feel safe so all in all it was neat to be able to say I had the experience here in Bucharest. I was a bit under the weather by nightfall and he was kind enough to bring me to the local market as well as the pharmacy. Translating for us for various things helped tremendously! We really enjoyed the restaurant he brought us too. Great food with a pleasant ambiance/pretty view!

Our tour guide Nicole had so many stories to tell. I liked the fact that she had old photos of the buildings and places we visited and she also shared with us some of her and her family experiences in communism. She really made the tour come to life.
