My name is Cris and I am a licensed, independent tour guide, working as a sole trader since 2012, providing private and custom tours in Bucharest, Romania, as well as day tours from Bucharest. I offer probably the largest variety of Bucharest tours I personally researched and designed, from sightseeing and walking tours, to food & wine tasting tours, Jewish Heritage tours, tours focusing on the Communist past, or tours exploring Bucharest's old quaint neighborhoods. I've been happy to welcome my guests, trying to offer them a glimpse into the local culture and history, and a better understanding of my native city and country.
