Refreshed, we will continue our walk in an old neighbourhood where you will find out about the vampire of Bucharest that terrorized the city in the 70s.

Wow! Catalina was so kind to take me on an unbelievable tour of Bucharest, history of Vlad the Impaler [Dracula]. Also the great legends and facts that make Bucharest come alive. The food was amazing and you are sure to love the sour soup, sausages, beer and fantastic dessert. I saw many sights that would be impossible for me to know on my own, really made me start to have affection for Bucharest. From the beginning of this review you know with my blue eyes I can fix the evil eye However, luckily I now know the cure as well. You will have to take the tour to learn this and many other wonderful insights! Be sure to make this tour part of your Bucharest experience.

The tour me, my mom, and friend had with Katalina was the best tour we have had on our trip. We went on her Day time vampire and food tour. She was very smart, informative, kind, and answered all our questions. The fact she was born and raised in Bucharest allowed us to understand the culture more. I was very impressed with her English and knowledge of her country's history. I would recommend her to anyone looking to explore the history and taste of Bucharest.

Catalina was a wonderful guide; full of stories and amazing facts about not only the legends of the area but also Romanian culture and life. The restaurants were obviously chosen with care and offered a variety of Romanian foods. Great company and great food; the perfect combination.
