We’ve been living in Bucharest for some time already but we didn’t really get to explore it properly. We went on this tour as an excuse for biking a couple of hours but it turned out to be quite the experience as the route was well planned and the guide knowledgeable. It was surprising how much I enjoyed my own city in good company and while learning interesting stuff.
Highly recommended especially for visitors but locals also (you’ve no idea how much you don’t know about your own city).
Two thumbs up!
P.S. be careful with the cars while biking in Bucharest.
