If you have only a few hours or half a day available, or even you are only traveling through Bucharest, you can join us on one of our fascinating Bucharest City Sightseeing Tours. The themes of the tours vary in accordance with your interests as they focus on different aspects of the history and culture of Romania’s capital city. They range from explorations of the city’s arts, mediaeval history, commercial past or French eclectic architecture to a discovery of communist Bucharest and the daily life of its inhabitants.

The half-day tours to the Pasarea Convent and the Cernica Monastery provide an insight into Christian Orthodox monastic life and traditions. The tour to Snagov Monastery also explores some of the Romanian connections to Dracula's legend.
