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.

A wonderful tour. Guide was intelligent and knowledgeable. Stories of early communism in Romania, Ceausescu power and excesses, role as Communist maverick, his wife, his destruction of much of old Bucharest, the revolt that threw him out all very well orchestrated with path of tour and visuals...down to the artillery shell damage high on a few still unrepaired buildings. Lingering effects today were interestingly integrated.
