What you'll do

We'll have a walk thru the old citadel of Timisoara where we'll discover the Ottoman influences, see what Habsburgic Empire brought to the table & how the city developed in the last 100 years under the Romanian rulership. At the end we will find ourselves at the starting point of the Romanian Revolution from 1989 & discuss the current events.

I have been a licensed tour guide for 6 years. I began working in this field while i was still a university student & for the past 5 years i have worked for the Free Tour in Bucharest, as well doing bicycle tours for 3 years. I also have been providing tours in partnership with different festivals (George Enescu festival, Armenian Street festival).
My main drive is to offer a local's perspective on the city & culture of this beautiful place.

Had an absolute blast with Andrei - a super friendly, intelligent and charismatic guy who really made us feel welcome. He was not only interesting, with great knowledge of the city, past and present, but brought a unique humour and a really chill vibe to the whole tour. Thanks so much!

We had a great time with Andrei. Great mix of humor with storytelling and knowledge. He is a funny dude, which lightens the mood. Highly recommend.

Definitely the most entertaining tour guide I've ever had. Andrei blended history, culture, and personal stories so well (and rakija and mulled wine :D ), but what stood out most were his energy, wit, and hilarious perspectives. You have to do this tour!

Andrei is a very passionate storyteller, he made the city alive. He brought us to the most important spots of the city, gave us great advice where to go and what to eat. He also is very passionate about his project to open a place by himself to help children, its just wonderfull to support him into that he really deserves the best.
