Definitely a must-do! The guide was highly engaging and kept us interested throughout the tour. The breadth of knowledge she possessed about the local monuments was expansive to say the least. We visited few historical parts of the city which we would have definitely missed if not for this tour. This, accompanied by the usage of visual pictures and maps... More

She gave me a fantastic history lesson on the region, it's heritage and of course Dracula. We visited the Council Square, Black Church, Ecaterina's Gate just to name a few and had a great view of...

Elianca is the best guide you can ever get! We can tell her passion about doing this as she brought along some visuals to make the guests understand the city better! Love her for the informational and funny explanation, most importantly her initiatives in sharing her best to us

Hey, Keith, so glad you enjoyed the tour! I'm afraid I can't help it not adding a lot of visual details to my stories and explanations, as this is one professional 'defect'. So I'm always happy to find curious people:) Happy holidays to you and all the best! More

Greeted at the fountain by Kinga and what a happy, enthusiastic person on a chilly winter morning. I am not sure how anyone could possibly complain about a free tour, but this had all the feeling of a heavily priced tour with a well informed tour guide. Kinga was happy to answer all questions, and took group size, standing location... More

Really good way to start our our visit to Brasov and Transylvania. Our guide Simona was very informative and we learned a lot about Brasov and Dracula. The 2.5hrs flew by! Off season so only a few people in the group which was nice.

Kinga, our tour guide was very good and fun loving besides having thorough knowledge of Romanian/Brasov history, people and culture. We were a group of only 4, she has taken us to all important historical places and the tour last over two and half hours.
