The guide was outstanding. Knowledgeable and passionate, and an inspiration. If all young people in Romania have her vision and empathy then the future will be bright.

The tour did feel a little rushed but you have to consider that this is a working Government building so they are limited. With that said, what we were shown was very impressive and our guide was clear and informative, even though he was disrupted by other workers carrying food trays around! I would still recommend the tour to everyone.

The guide spoke quickly in English, and the distance did not help to understand what was being said. I would recommend a microphone to give even those who do not know English perfectly the opportunity to better follow

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 of 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 itself. 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 Fountains Avenue. All in all, a great, detailed tour of Europe's largest building that shouldn't be missed when in the city!
