    Fantastic tour, I live here and Cristina taught me a lot! Have taken multiple guests on this tour and all rave about it. Interesting, well done, helps you understand not only what happened but gives you a window into how some people responded. Can't recommend enough.

    This tour is a must do for anyone interested in history. Cristina did a phenomenal job explaining the context of life under communism in Romania. She answered questions extremely informatively and is a real subject matter expert. Would give more than 5 stars if I could!

    We were really interested in the communist history of Romania and found it very difficult to find out information about it, until we stumbled across this tour. We learned so much, our your guide (I think her name was Andrea) was super knowledgeable, happy to answer all of our questions, we had lots, gave us lots of great advice for our trip and shared some of her family's own history which made the tour very unique. This your by far exceeded my expectations and I think anyone visiting Romania should really try and fit this into their trip Great value for money, best walking tour I've ever been on, and I've done a lot!

    A tour that cannot be missed from a visit in Bucharest. Christina has done one of the most intriguing and incredibly-in-depth tours I've ever done in a city. Through her narration, not only you can learn about the life in Bucharest during Communism through buildings, legends and stories someone will never learn in English, but also you can see how this city has been formed to what it has become today. A chance that shall not be missed, if you ever get to Bucharest!
