      It’s an ok tour for a very fast visit
      Well organized tour. but our guide bogdan was hard to understand with his English. He spoke very fast as well which made it hard to understand. Also I know it’s a long day tour but the stops are a bit rushed to see much. Overall it’s a good tour for a very Quick Look at each stop.

      HARD TO BEAT
      This tour fully exceeded our expectations. Our guide Alex, was the best we have encountered in Eastern Europe. A truly first class operator. We could not recommend Alex and the company more highly.

      Tour time not as advertised
      This tour was meant to return to Bucharest at 7:30pm. However, we were told once already on the tour that we would actually return somewhere between 9pm-5am, which was drastically different than advertised and caused issue for us as we had an international train to catch that evening. Due to this, we had to leave the tour early at Bran Castle and find/pay for our own 4 hour return journey, to Bucharest, which included two taxis and a train. This forced us to spend more than double the original amount spent on the tour. The only option we were given was to leave the tour at the time we were told this information, after the tour had already begun, and were told we would not receive a refund if we did so. Would not recommend!

      Well organised trip
      Well organised tour. Our guide, Pavel was really helpful and informative. I found Peles castle more interesting than Dracula’s but glad we visited both. Bravos is a cute little town and we can recommend eating Sarmale at La Ceaun.

      We highly recommend the tour. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed it and Bogdan, the guide, was great and gave us so many facts about the destinations and about Romania itself.

      If you like coach rides, you'll love this tour!
      An absolute beast of a trip. A LOT of sitting on a bus with fifty other people... but it's worth it to see Bran Castle and have lunch. Bring a bottle of water and earphones with you, though. It's a 12+ hour day!

      Excellent guide, Bogdan. Very well organized!
      We really enjoyed our tour even if the weather that day is not on our side. Thanks to our tour guide, Mr. Bogdan and to our driver. Mr. Bogdan is a very knowledgeable, approachable, and very accommodating guide. The day before the tour, he contacted us through whatsapp for the instruction of the location of our meeting point. During our tour, even if it rained very much, he still explained to us everything well under the rain. We really appreciate his effort . Thanks for the wonderful experience!

      Disappointing Experience with Poor Service from Pavel
      We recently took the "Bucharest: City Tour with Mogosoaia and Snagov Monastery" and were extremely disappointed with the poor service provided by our guide, Pavel. Firstly, Pavel brought along another person for the trip, claiming he was under training. This person seemed more interested in chatting with Pavel than in learning or assisting with the tour. Throughout the trip, both of them were engrossed in their conversations, leaving us without the informative and engaging experience we had expected. When we arrived at the Parliament, we discovered it was closed for the day. We requested that Pavel show us another site instead, but he refused. The tour advertised hotel pickup and drop-off, but because we booked through GetYourGuide, the tour company refused to provide hotel pickup. Pavel promised to drop us at a bus stop 2 km from the drop-off point after the tour. However, he later refused, saying his boss had told him not to. He seemed to be in a hurry throughout the tour, driving very fast within the city, which made it difficult for us to properly see and appreciate the sights. Additionally, Pavel left behind a customer in the morning because she was slightly late, showing no patience or understanding. The tour ended abruptly by 3 pm. We requested that Pavel show us something else since the tour ended so quickly, but he bluntly refused. Overall, this was the worst experience we've had on a guided tour. Pavel's lack of professionalism, impatience, and disregard for his guests made for a horrible experience. We do not recommend this tour.

      Great tour choice
      The tour was very well organised -from clear pick up instructions to a decent coach and a very knowledgeable guide. Peles castle was definitely worth seeing - we would have liked to see more rooms but not sure if that's possible with any tour. Brasov was a lovely town. I would recommend walking away from the square for lunch- there's many more restaurants less touristy in the adjacent streets. Bran castle was a bit of a let down - cramped inside, lots of stairs, boring interior. The surroundings were the best part. Don't forget a jumper or coat as it's much cooler in the mountains than the city!

      Fantastic day trip! Sergiu was outstanding!
      Excellent tour! The tour guide Sergiu was really friendly and knowledgeable about the areas we visited. He helped arrange a special birthday wish for my husband while we were on the bus. Make sure you bring plenty water, wear comfortable shoes, and bring something like a book for the long drives!

      Bad communication/service
      We were a group of friends who were sure that we had booked a tour in a smaller group, and that we were to be picked up by a van at 7.30 am. When the van didn't come, we tried to get in touch with One Excellence Tours. The phone turned out to be unmanned, even after the office opened at 9 am. They ONLY answered emails! We eventually received an email saying that we had booked places on a bus with room for 48 people. It is, in our opinion, not a small group. We advise others who book a trip with this company to check with drivers on absolutely ALL BUSES at the meeting point whether this may be the bus you have booked. The bus is not marked with the company's name, and you cannot expect any kind of service, either from the customer office or the bus driver/guide.

      Amazing trip with Dani
      Amazing trip to 3 of the main attractions in Romania. The tour was guided by Dani, he was very nice person and really amazing, he told us many interesting information about each location even during the way from Bucharest. We liked how he managed things in friendly terms. We recommend this trip for any one interested to see the beauty of Romania.

    It was a terrible experience!! The One Excellence Tour Company denied seat in the min-van as it was full and the tour guide promised that, one more mini-van will be picking us up. Even after waiting for an hour there was no sign of pickup. When we tried to call the customer service phone number, no one picked the phone. Sent multiple whatsapp message and email messages. No response at all. Very disappointed. Hoping to receive the refund....

    Dear Keshavaraja Alive, Thank you for your review. We take into account all received reviews as we strive offer the best service. Upon checking your review, we have noticed that it contains false information, for which we will apply full transparency in our response. Your booking for Constanta trip was received via GetYourGuide and this is part of it: Date: 27 March 2024, 08:00 (08:00am) Number of participants: 2 x Adults (Age 18 - 99 ) (€ 70.00) Reference number: GYGFWXF5RAM9 Main customer: Shilpa Rao However one night before we received multiples emails, WhatsApp phone calls and messages for the company to provide pick-up at your hotel, although it was not part of the service and it had a meeting point with 8:00 am departure time. This is why we never responded. More in the morning, the guide reported that instead of 2 adults for this booking, another 3rd person was brought and when he asked for the voucher, you have refused to present the voucher and jumped in the minivan, making it harder for the guide to manage the situation. The 3rd person was a child at the age of 10-12 years old. The guide removed you from the group and told you that you have not payed for the third person (the child) and you were insisting that you were going to keep him in your lap, making illegal for the minivan to have more people than seats allowed. The guide stated that only 2 seats were allocated for your booking, as per the booking details. We have later detailed the situation to GetYourGuide with the attempted fraud and denied your refund request. Now for the part that made everything clear to us was that you had another booking for Bucharest tour next day: Date: 28 March 2024, 09:00 (09:00am) Number of participants: 2 x Adults (Age 18 - 99 ) (€ 41.00) 1 x Child (Age 11 - 17 ) (€ 35.00) Reference number: GYGLMWFRLA3H Main customer: Keshavaraja Alive Both bookings had same phone number. What we have noticed, is that on the other booking you did add the third person. We do not condone false information nor attempts of casting a negative light over a situation that was out of our control. If one booking has 2 adults mentioned, then 2 seats will be allocated as per the booking. We wish you best of travel!

    We booked a trip to Constanta as we wanted to see the Black Sea. Our guide was Paul and I must say that he is very knowledgeable and his English is perfect. Throughout the tour he gave us interesting insights about Romanian history and general facts. Constanta is great place to visit and the museums are great. If you want to explore Romanian history and have great sites with a knowledgeable guide, this is the perfect tour !

    My college aged daughter and I really enjoyed our tour in Constanta. As it was still a bit cold for the beach we spent most of our time there. Being from the USA, we were taken by the breadth of ancient artifacts dating back to the first century at the archeology museum and size of the Roman mosaic. We enjoyed the view from the minaret and climbing on the rocks at the Black Sea by the casino. Our tour guide, Paul, was very knowledgeable and told us the full story behind Dracula, as well as highlighting some artifacts with details that helped bring them to life, plus providing a good restaurant suggestion.

    Very enjoyable day. Definitely worth climbing the 140 steps of the mosque minaret to see the the view of the Black Sea. Walking along the gigantic beach in Mamaia and finding shells was my favorite part of the day

    From the time of pick up to the time of drop off our driver Rasmin was knowledgeable, courteous, and thoughtful. Our trip on 22 Aug 2019 was anything but as you describe above. It is Romania's favorite holiday destination and between Bucharest and Constanta the complete population of Romania was there. It was an experience we enjoyed. There were 4 English speaking Canadians and our driver provided an excellent review of not only this day trip but information on the country and the various leaders over the years. I would highly recommend this trip to first time, Romanian visitors.

    We shared the tour with 4 other people whose 1st language wasn’t English. This meant I got to speak a lot with our tour guide Razvan who shared a lot about Romania and his life while we were driving. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our whole purpose was to see the Black Sea and we did at both places and stood in the water at the beach at Mamaia. We enjoyed the museum, wandering the old town in Constanta. If the government ever finishes restoring The Casino, the tour will be even better. In Mamaia, it was nice to see where Romanians would go for a local beach holiday.

    We were lucky enough to have a private tour for the day since no-one else booked the trip the day we went. Angelica was our driver / guide. She had good English and was very knowledgeable about the area and history. It was a most enjoyable day.

    I'm not a huge fan of beach towns, but I definitely wanted to see the Black Sea. This tour was perfect - not too much beach walking/sitting, lots of history, and we had a gorgeous day! Paul was very nice even though we fell asleep on the way back! Learning about the Romanian attempts at tourism was fascinating, and sad that the residents don't use this town more! The museums were fascinating, and Paul gave great history lessons.
