          Excellent country, excellent view, excellent guide
          We are a group of 9 colleagues travelled with George. It is really great in all senses. I didn’t really know how to imagine Romanian views other than Dracula, but it is really awesome. Especially the villages and also the meal in the village. It is a very local experience in a world heritage village, peaceful, with mountains as a background. And so delicious food and drinks, even the bathroom is so clean! The pace of the tour is another shine. Our group have both people in their 60s and in their 20s, from 3 different continents - apparently we are all quite happy😂. George gave us a lot of options on what we could do once we arrive at a nice medieval city, and we just do what we find interesting. It is really relaxing while full of discoveries. And he has great restaurant recommendations (and takes good pictures). And I must highlight our guide George was very very nice and helpful!! Another stupid thing I did is to forget my jacket in a previous hotel.. I thought I’m gonna lose it or sth, but George helped contacted the hotel and managed to find another guide there who will visit the same restaurant as we will - and the other guide agreed to bring my jacket for free:) our guide is really doing a splendid job. He’s a problem solver. And people are so nice here.

          Brilliant!!!
          Loved, loved Romania and George's knowledgeable and easy-going tour guide skills and manner. We saw castles, villages, cities, churches, private residences, and resorts, and participated in holiday and religious celebrations and local customs and practices. We learned about Romania's complex history-- the Saxons, Hungarians, Ottomans, Soviets, the EU, and more. Our days were full, yet we weren't rushed. Site visits and driving times were balanced. I definitely recommend George's tours. .

          A Hidden Gem
          I just returned from almost three weeks in Romania, and it is definitely a hidden gem. There is so much to see-mountains, lakes, big cities, smaller cities and towns that still retain their old-world character, and so much more. George was our guide for two weeks, and he was great. He was very knowledgeable and helpful, and was willing to provide any extra support that was needed. He was also very funny, and a pleasure to be with. I learned a lot from him. I am definitely planning to go back to Romania. I think it's only a matter of time before the word gets out, and they see a lot more tourists.

          Let Go and Let George, You Won't Be Disappointed
          Romania is a surprise at every corner. The Romanian people are warm and welcoming. I had many meals in the homes of locals because our guide took time to get to know what's possible. And nothing takes the place of a local guide. George from Touring Romania, was phenomenal. His passion for his country and deep knowledge of history and culture provided experiences I could never had done traveling independently. And those who know me, know that's my preferred way to go. On this trip I adopted the motto: "Let go and let George." He never disappointed.

          Outstanding tour !!
          We had first planned a tour with George in 2021 that we had to cancel due to Covid. I was so impressed that he refunded all of our monies, and remained in constant communication, that I was determined to arrange another tour with him. We finally (a group of 6 friends) did get our 10 day private tour with George. Our experience was flawless, and was one of the best touring experiences we have had. George arranged a perfect itinerary for us, but also remained flexible to include any of our suggestions/requests. He was incredibly knowledgable not only about Romania, but also world wide events and issues, and we enjoyed our convention with him immensely. He was the perfect blend of spending time with us, but also providing us time to set out independently based on his guidance and recommendations. He could not do enough for us, and managed to cater to the individual preferences of 6 people, which is not an easy task !! We all whole heartedly agreed that George is the best of the best - we arrived as clients, but left as friends and I would not hesitate to recommend Touring Romania to everyone !

          A Memorable Experience of a Fascinating Country.
          We travelled with two other couples that are friends of ours. George was able to comfortably accommodate the six of us plus our luggage for this fantastic tour of Romania. His knowledge of history, geography and local sites was shared in a warm and friendly way. His customized selection of accomodations was right for us. His mastery of the English language was outstanding. I could go on and on. We really didn't have Romania on our list of places to visit but our friends invited us to join them and we are forever grateful for the opportunity to take this deep dive into this wonderful country.

          George is an excellent and knowledgeable guide. We had a wonderful time with George, he guided us around Romania and showing the sights and delights of this beautiful country. He is very patient, friendly and responsible person. It was a blessing to have a great guide who is caring in conducting and organize the tour. Definitely recommend George if you want to visit Romania.

          Transylvania region. Fantastic guide
          We had a fantastic time with George, he is an excellent guide and very knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble for George and he made sure he accommodated for everyone on our trip. We loved Romania, and the Transylvania region. If you are thinking of booking with George, you will not regret it!

          Maybe we ARE guided-tour kind of people?
          Our family spent three wonderful days with George in Romania over the Christmas holidays. We are not normally guided-tour kind of people but George may have changed our minds! We learned so much about Romania (factual info about the places we visited as well as George’s own experiences of life during Romania’s communist period) and his love of his country is infectious! He was super easy to be around, he can relate to anyone and has wonderfully positive energy. He anticipated our needs, quietly and calmly problem-solved and, in general, went above and beyond to make sure we had a smooth and enjoyable holiday. Thank you, George!

          Tour in Romania, Bratislava (Slovakia), Budapest (Hungary), Vienna (Austria), Český Krumlov and Prague (Czech Republic)
          We spent 7 days in Romania, which included Bucharest, Brasov, Sibiu, Cluj and Oradea; half a day in Bratislav; 2 days in Budapest; 2 days in Vienna; 1 day in Český Krumlov and 1 day in Prague with George as our personal guide. George was outstanding — organized, informative, patient, thoughtful and caring. Since our family members included two seniors, George provided an itinerary and pace that fitted us the best, and selected hotels that were in the center of the town or city, close to all the attractions and restaurants. At each location, he would give us great restaurant recommendations. One of our activities included boat ride — one in Budapest and one in Prague. Both a must. In addition, George arranged a local guide for Budapest, Vienna and Prague that provided walking tour. All of them were excellent — very knowledgeable, informative and engaging. We found each experience fun and educational. Overall, George was an amazing host with great personality and attitude, not to mention humor, who attended our interests and needs successfully. We always felt safe and well taken care of. I would highly recommend a tour with George.

          Discover Transylvania and Central Europe
          Discover Transylvania and Central Europe: Bucharest > Sibiu > Cluj > Oradea > Budapest > Vienna > Cesky Krumlov > Prague - 14 Days. My parents are seniors over 75 years old and my sister and I wanted the convenience of a private tour. We are so glad to find George at Touring Romania! George was helpful and worked with us to put our 14-day itinerary together. George is knowledgeable, accommodating, and caring. It rained on the day we were supposed to do a walking tour in Budapest and he worked with the local tour guide to customize it as a driving tour instead! He also has a network and worked with experienced local tour guides, in Budapest, Vienna, and Prague, which we liked to get local perspectives from. We learned a lot about history, culture, and immersed ourselves in the beautiful villages, towns, and cities. We had a wonderful experience and I couldn’t recommend George highly enough.

          Hidden Gem!
          My husband and I went on an adventure with George on the Best of Romania: 8 day Transylvania and Maramures tour. We had a great time! We really didn’t know much about Romania but with this tour we learned so much about the country’s history and culture. Maramures is like a journey back in time. We had home cooked meals, fire water (ha, ha) and a hike to Rooster’s Crest. Peles Palace and the Turda Salt Mine were also highlights. The countryside and villages are beautiful! George is a fantastic tour guide! Very knowledgeable and passionate. Romania is a hidden gem not yet overrun with tourists that deserves more attention. If you’re thinking about going just do it!

        George is a fantastic guide. He knows his country inside and out, he knows people who add a personal dimension to the tour, and he's fun to travel with. He worked very hard to give us the best possible experience, and it's a trip I will never forget.

        This trip was jointly planned with George Trandafir of Touring Romania. The pace of the tour was perfect. The scenery was spectacular. The vehicle was very comfortable, and George is a great driver, both in the city and in the mountains. The accommodations selected were of high quality and in excellent locations for enjoying the beauty of Maramures and Bucovina. George's detailed knowledge of today's Bucharest and the history of the Transylvanian countryside was very helpful. The tour was an excellent value.

        I am a senior with limited mobility, traveling with a friend who suffers from similar issues. I cannot climb mountains or difficult steps. Yet, with George, in 14 days, I truly saw Romania. He did all the right things:located accommodations without steps, drove us through the beautiful country, taught us the history, shared the hopes of Romania’s future, Yes! I learned all the facts about Romania and the ability of the people to survive, both physically and spiritually through most difficult times. All of the things we expect our guides to do, he accomplished with the expertise of a professional.
        What I did not expect: Through George, in 14 days, I felt the heart and soul of Romania, and how their faith sustains them, The people are as beautiful as the landscape. I fell in love with the way of life. It made me recall the days of simple values. So, George does have the ability to reach beyond the norm and share the heart and soul of Romania. And, I have the great fortune of having seen Romania through his eyes . In addition, I have made a wonderful and insightful friend!
        Thank you my good friend, for the wonderful experience of seeing Romania with you.

        We met George last year when we joined him for a two day tour from Bucharest. This small sample was enough to convince us that we wanted to see much more of Romania. However, we are "mid seventies" and not exactly spry!
        George created the perfect tour for us. Not only did he hand-pick hotels which had elevators (or ground floor rooms available) but he arranged for two-night stays in most places. This meant a leisurely pace for us and enabled us to have enough free time to get to know our destination and make friends along the way. (The people in Romania are exceptionally welcoming.) We experienced everything we had hoped for and more.
        Every detail of our vacation was thoroughly planned with our comfort in mind. I never imagined that I would be able to have such a wonderful travel experience such as we had with Touring Romania. It truly was the trip of a lifetime!

        We were a small group on a 10 day private tour with George. It was simply wonderful! George is kind funny and flexible, not to mention a skilled storyteller and historian. We truly had an insiders experience thanks to George’s knowledge and connections with families and lovely places to stay in Romania. While we saw many of the cultural highlights that Romania has to offer, we also spent some time off the beaten path: visiting folks for amazing meals at their homes as well as crafts people demonstrating their art and craft. I cannot say enough about what a special experience this opportunity to travel with George was, thanks for an amazing journey George!

        The owner of the company, George Trandafir, also acts as your guide and driver by taking you around with his minibus for guides and small groups. The sweetest person in the world is a very sensitive and solution-oriented person at all times. We, 7 people, made a program with George and turned Romania upside down for 14 days. If you are going to make a trip to Romania and want to make it enjoyable, just contact George.
