Walkabout tours are informative, fun, interesting and a great way to get to know a new city - in Brasov we had maranda who was cracking jokes, giving us tons of information, and answering our questions. Definitely recommend this company wherever you might be going.

Our guide explained the local sights and information, at times very gruesome Vlad details. She really loves being a guide and sharing her vast information with all. When you are in Brasov, I highly recommend hooking up with Walkabout Free Tours.

Guide Alin knows a lot about the city and can tell interesting stories. Beside the history of the city you will also learn about the traditional romanian food, drinks and dances. Alin can give tipps where to go in the evening. It was fun!
