Guided tour for your foreign business partners, and not only!

Situated at the crossroad between Occident and Orient, Bucharest is an atypical European capital, which can be elusive to the untrained eye. Our guided tower will offer you access to mesmerizing locations, some renowned while others quite unknown, but all with a fascinating history. This city of contrasts, heterogeneous and sometimes chaotic, can take you by surprise, scandalize you and seduce you at the same time. Defined by its eclecticism, that can be discovered by contemplating a number of popular spots, Bucharest will bring you face to face with several styles and époques, from medieval castles to neoclassic, communist and postmodernist sites. They all blend together in a mix of elegant Occidental grandeur and sensual Oriental nonchalance.
