There were only 2 of us with our guide , Andrei, so the tour was actually a private one so for us it was a nice bonus. The tour was very interesting as Andrei shared with us all of his extensive knowledge related with Jewish heritage sites, local Architecture and a lot of other topics related to Bucharst and Romania. We visited a lot of sites such as Holocaust Memorial, Choral Temple, Great Synagoge and Holocaust Museum, Jewish Theatre, Jewish history Museum and others. I would defenetly suggest this tour for everyone.
