I took history tour. It was private tour that lasted seven hours. We walk around the city's interesting places, buildings, churches including visit to Parlament house. Learned a lot about the communist era and its dictator. Very informative, I learned a lot about Bucharest history and Romanian history and traditions.

The very best way to discover Bucharest
With only one full day to spend discovering the city of Bucharest, I booked a private tour. I thought that an all-day (7 hours) tour might be too much...................but quite the opposite.
My guide for the day was Diana Condrea, and I could not have wished for a more knowledgeable guide. Her knowledge of the city, and its history and culture is staggering encyclopedic, but delivered in a way that is manageable for anyone, regardless of what you already know. From the history of the nation, architecture, the impact of Communism and life during that period.

The Real Deal
Diana Condera is the real deal. There are not enough positive superlatives in the English language to describe her. Diana has found that balance between being informative with just the right amount of data delivered at a pace that provides and opportunity to absorb the data yet not overwhelming. Diana is a very learned and proud Romanian who genuinely wants the world to have an open appreciation for her country. Her background is from a political science (not political) perspective which we thoroughly enjoyed. Diana was punctual and professional yet totally warm and charming during our entire day together. Do yourself a favor and book with Diana.

I had a great time with Diana as my guide. She was knowledgeable, passionate and very kind. She gave me a locals perspective of Bucharest-past and present. The best part about a private tour is she was open to all questions and she knows the city very well to point out what to see in the evening and other days you are in town.
I would recommend using Uncover Romania for anyone who is a first timer in Bucharest

The greatest time in Romania
We had the greatest time with you in Romania. I had no idea when you said that you offered a unique experience, just how unique it would be. Romania is a beautiful country with friendly people, an extremely interesting history and many things to see and do. And it is a safe country. We especially enjoyed our visits to the smaller cities of Brasov and Sighisoara but also the castles and fortresses. You were a walking encyclopedia and shared so much knowledge with us.
My favourite part of the holiday was Copse Mare. It changed my life and has given me so many wonderful memories that I have shared with family and friends
Aside from the very personal journey,the trip itself was exceptional.

A fantastic tour
This was a fantastic tour - the guide was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. We would give this 10 stars if we could. We saw so much and learnt so much and at the end the guide even refused to take a tip. We felt more like we were being shown around by a friend or relative than by a paid guide. I would recommend this tour and this particular guide to anyone. We have had several experiences with Viator - all good but this one was truly exceptional.
Full-Day Historical Bucharest Private Walking Tour
What a great tour, we were met at 08:30 at our Hotel by Diana for our Full-Day Historical Bucharest Private Walking Tour . We were then driven to the Parliament Building for the start of our tour. I won't go through all the places we visited, but she took us to loads of varied and interesting places in the centre of Bucharest. We loved the tour, but would recommend you wear trainers as you could well end up with sore feet. We stopped off for lunch in a restaurant in the site of an old inn, here you could have traditional Romanian fare or have something more western. Our day we were lucky to have 30 degree temperature, but Diana showed no sign of flagging as we visited Churches, Theatres Old Forts, buildings changed into Government Of

An Excellent, Pleasant and Knowledgeable Tour Guide
I highly recommend taking an "Uncover Romania" tour with tour-guide, Diana Condrea. I took the Bucharest city cultural tour and was very impressed. I'm glad I took a guided tour instead of venturing out myself. Diana shared many historical facts about the sites we visited, and also pointed out buildings and sites along the way and explained the importance of each. After 6 hours, Diana wanted to continue the tour and show me more of the city, however, my legs refused to walk any further. There were 3 taxi rides during the course of the tour to reach sites further away, but it is primarily a walking tour. Unfortunately, I had to cancel my planned half-day tour to Peles and Brasov due to a flight cancellation. Diana willingly

One Day Medieval Tour
I cannot begin to express how absolutely marvelous this tour was!! I'm in Bucharest for six weeks on my own, and first of all, when I contacted Diana, she gave me the best price for a solo tour of any company I contacted, by far! She picked me up from my rented apartment promptly at the agreed upon time, and we were off. All I can really say is that I had a wonderful day. Diana is so nice and personable, very easy to talk to and get along with. At each of the sites we saw (I did the Medieval tour to Curtea de Arges, Poenari Fortress, and Targoviste), I was amazed at the knowledge she shared. She doesn't use books or references or anything; it's all in her head- and I suspect quite a bit more than she had time to share with me

Palace of Mogosoaia, Snagov & Targoviste Day Trip f/ Bucharest
Our tour with Uncover Romania was great. Diana, our tour guide, was very professional, courteous & knowledgeable about Romanian history, culture & the places we visited. I would definitely recommend Uncover Romania for your next tour.

I had a really good time with Diana from Uncover Romania, I wish I could have done more than one day tour and gotten a little bit of hiking in there as well, but she managed the time really well and was great company and obviously knew a lot about the history and significance of the places we were visiting. I would definitely recommend for solo travellers and small groups, I think it gives a nicer experience in comparison to mass group tours. :)
