“My Wonderful Personal Trainer Alex!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Just back to Dubai from a brilliant Romanian tour who's foundation was Alex's Transylvanian starter! And I don't mean chicken soup haahaa.

Brilliant guy very knowledgeable and if you want an affiable character who understands how much "tour guide" you want then this is the company if you know what I mean.

After 1480 steps haggisnette and I were not talkative...indeed we were almost dead...however Im glad we saw the true Vlad castle rather than the tourist one.

Alex, looking forward to the next tour!

“Great day touring Wallachia and Transylvania - Thanks Alex!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

We toured three castles and spent the entire day from 9AM - 10PM with our guide Alex. Alex has forgotten more about Romania and Transylvania then most people know. We laughed a lot and most of all learned a lot more. Was a great experience and we would do it again in a heartbeat, as long as Alex was our guide!

“Amazing Experience - Thanks Alex”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

My partner and I were lucky enough to be in Romania a few weeks ago now and be shown around by Alex. We put forward a few ideas and places we had in mind and Alex did the rest. He collected us from our hotel and showed us beautiful Romania at our own pace including Bucharest, Brasov and Transylvanian. Alex has extension knowledge and was able to answer any questions we had. He is very passionate about his homeland and is excited to show visitors around. Thanks Alex.

“VIP Tour Transylvania Passes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Bogdan!! This review has been a while coming, many apologies! Our tour with you was fantastic! We truly felt like you gave us backstage VIP passes to all locations we visited, your knowledge was extensive & always informative (language lessons included!) You took all the stress out of planning our mini break away & we felt like our holiday lasted weeks not mere days. I have & will continue to recommend your tour/s & wish you all the very best for the future of your private Transylvania tour business.

“Alex - Connected. Trustworthy. Knowledgeable. Period. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Alex (Bogdan) helps you explore Transylvania at the pace and way you want to go. We did an all day tour out of Brasov where, by chance, we got to tour Peles Castle with a private group even though the castle was closed to the public. His connections got us in to experience the special treasure. On to Bran where he hooked us up on the history of the revered castle and its dark secrets. We closed the day with Rasnov fortification -- a must see!

What made Alex extra special was his candid conversation about life growing up in Communist Romania. Incredible insight! Thanks Alex for the tour, but more so for sharing the culture of Romania with us. treasure. On to Bran where he hooked us up on the history of the revered castle and its dark secrets.

Travel Tip: Make sure you book with Alex since there's another tour operator operating with like business name. There's only one Alex! Best to check or you'll regret.
