    This tour was amazing - a definite must-do in Bucharest. Marius was a very informative guide and shared so many interesting facts about the city during communism. He also shared his own personal experience under communism. The tour takes you to several important city sites and was well worth the money spent. Thanks Marius!

    Communism isn't inherently captivating to me, but this tour made me understand so much about Romanian history, and about how communism managed to take hold (for a time). Tour guide Marius was super-super smart and thoughtful. The sights were not gorgeous (I think that's the point!) but the insights were.

    Well versed guide, very interesting and informative. Would have preferred not to have the mid tour stop maybe only 10-15 minutes would have sufficed.
