Into oza kuyenza

Come on over to the dark side...of Bucharest.
Travel back in time through stories of a turbulent past and explore the less savory aspects of its history, from the bloody battles fought between Vlad the Impaler and the Ottoman Empire in the Middle Ages, to the "Little Paris" era of the early 20th century, and on to Communist times, undoubtedly one of Romania's darkest chapters.

Visit the oldest cemetery in town, a beautiful final resting place with an eclectic collection of funeral monuments ranging from astoundingly beautiful to bewildering, and hear stories that will make your heart melt and your hair curl.

Explore a former luxury brothel famous during the golden age of 'Little Paris', and hear stories of famous courtesans who stole the hearts of kings. Find out about our own 'Jack the Ripper', dubbed the 'Vampire of Bucharest', who had a penchant for blonde waitresses and terrorized the city in the early 70s.

Finish the adventure in the Revolution Square and learn about the hardships of daily life under one of Eastern Europe's most brutal totalitarian regimes, as well as the struggle of the Romanian people to free themselves from oppression through the Revolution of 1989.
Other things to note
Not recommended for children aged 16 and under

I have joined dozens of Airbnb experiences in different countries over the years and this was one of the best! I highly recommend anyone coming to Bucharest joining this great tour! - The stories were so interesting and the places amazing! :-)

Dana was an exceptional guide. She was extremely pleasant and friendly. She showed extensive knowledge and made the tour very interesting and detailed. My favourite thing about this tour is that it does not just cover the generic sites and history of Bucharest but allows you to see and learn about unusual aspects of the city and it’s history. I would highly recommend this tour and Dana.

This was a very different tour. We took the metro to a really amazing cemetery and saw wonderful architecture, heard of feuds between writers and was introduced to the Lady with the Umbrella. So interesting. Secreted in the middle of a busy street was English Passage, formerly a high class brothel but now apartments. We were told how a serial killer in the 1970s attacked his victims in such passages and was eventually caught and executed - but not before confessing to 23 murders! The history of the revolution can be seen all around and hearing about it was very sad. Go on this tour - it’s 3 hours very well spent.

At 3 pm of a cold January day I met my guide, at the designated meeting point. I was the only tourist, so I had the plus of a private walking tour with Andra, a lovely young lady who shared history and stories about the Golden Age of Romania while walking at the cemetery. Thanks to her knowledge I got immersed in her tales, some of them very dark indeed, about important women and men of Romania during the mid-19th century, until this wonderful time came at an end with the two world wars. Then she walked me through another dark period in the history of Romania: from Ceaușescu until the Revolution. It is a very interesting and informative tour, also because Andra perfectly conveys her passion for some characters and her knowledge about history. It was a cold afternoon warmed up by Andra!

Es un tour muy interactivo, interesante, siniestro con las historias y muy bien preparado. Los lugares a ver son todos muy bellos y llenos de historia y son contados de una manera muy profesional. Hicimos el tour en inglés y fue muy entendible. Nuestra guía se llama DANA y por muy lejos es la mejor que haya tenido. Respondió a nuestras preguntas. Nos trato con mucho cariño y nos mostró y contó todo sobre el "Old Town". Haría mil tour más con DANA. Todo estuvo tan entretenido que no sentimos que caminaramos tanto. Nos mostró con mucho orgullo su país que nos hizo amarlo de inmediato. GRACIAS!!!

Cemeteries are a great way to get a perspective on another culture’s history, daily life, social norms, architecture and to just be out in a calm, peaceful atmosphere. This tour did all of those! Such a wonderful afternoon!
