This tour is a part of the Urban Adventures Home Cooked series and aims to give you one of the richest travelling experiences you can ever have – the opportunity to enjoy a meal with a family in a local home.Your local hostspeaks English well, so you won’t need sign language to understand each other! The aim is for you to experience life exactly how it is in Bucharest. It is the chance for you to hang out with everyday locals, and get to know Romanian culture through their eyes, and their food. Could there be a more perfect way to get to know local life in Bucharest?! We don’t think so. You will be met at the meeting point by one of the family who speaks English. We’ll head back to your hosts’ home, and afteryou’re introduced, it’s time to get our chef hats on! In terms of the cooking, you can do as much or as little as you like. If you want to learn some Romanian cooking techniques and recipes, this is your chance to learn from a local.Theywill be happy to show you the ropes. But if you want to just sit back, chat, and relax, that’s cool too. When the food is ready you will all sit down together and share the meal prepared, enjoy the conversation, or maybe you’ll even look at each other’s photographs and maybe take some more all together. This experience is real. Our families come from all walks of life. Some you might find have a similar lifestyle to your own, whereas others might come from a very different background. This is your chance to get to know the people of Romania in their own homes – something that you certainly won’t find on every tour in Bucharest! The beauty of this project is that everyone involved in our Home Cooked Series is someone who wants to meet travellers and share experiences with them. (If you’d prefer to travel as part of a regular group experience, please book our Home Cooked Bucharest group tour.) This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
