The mansion was amazing and shocking at the same time. It was such a shame that no photos were allowed or postcards of the interior available for sale. I felt the tour was a little rushed, I would have liked a little more time in each room to look at all the artefacts. Also the guide spoke very quickly and didn't seem to have passion for his work.

It was very interesting to see the Palace of Parliament. I didn't like that we were very big group and it was too hard to hear the guide.

Extremely well organised, especially when it comes to the communication upfront (where and when to meet, what to bring etc).

Ioana was very helpful with the organisation and taking us to the parliament building. The guide inside was also helpful, but he was in a rush and so the tour itself lasted only 30 minutes.

We had booked the villa and parliament combination. The communication and organization worked perfectly for both tours. We were particularly grateful that they waited for us at the villa, even though we were clearly too late. Thanks again for that! It was the first, but definitely not the last time with Headout

Palace of the Parliament

Enjoy this comprehensive guided tour through Bucharest's Palace of the Parliament, one of Europe's most impressive buildings. Your informative local guide will walk alongside you, sharing intriguing facts and intel about Romania's Parliament. Walk past large halls, opulent decorations and fascinating interiors, as you gain a deeper understanding about Romania's history and politics. A name you'll hear often will be "Nicolae Ceausescu", who played a role in shaping Romania. On the ground floor, you'll pick up facts and figures about the palace it inself. On the first level, you'll see the main meeting rooms and the Ballroom, learning about its maddening architecture. The 2nd level holds the balcony that offers great views over the Fountains Avenue. All in all, a great, detailed tour of Europe's largest building that shouldn't be missed when in the city!

Ceausescu Mansion

Follow your guide through Nicolae Ceausescu's private office, the chess room, and the bedrooms. Everything is kept in place so you will see closets lined with fur coats that once belonged to Elena Ceausescu, or the dictator's pyjamas folded and placed on his bed. Walk past the family dining room and relaxation table, and learn about how the dictator lived a lavish life back then.

Make your way to the greenhouse, where the recreated tropical climate allowed for exotic fruits like bananas and pineapples to grow. Fun fact: Ceausescu was a fan of exotic birds too, which is why the garden was populated by peacocks. Last but not the least, head over to the indoor pool, which is decorated entirely in blue mosaic and has themes which are reminiscent of those from Ancient Rome. See all of this glamor in one house that was far away from people's eyes. This was where a dictator's family was living a lavish life, as the rest of the population were starving.
