          Great 5 day private tour around Transylvania
          I would highly recommend Mihai for a tour in Romania. We worked together to customize a tour which worked for us. Mihai was an excellent guide and a very safe driver. We had a very enjoyable tour around Transylvania and saw many great sights including castles, Saxon villages, monasteries and Bears.

          Enthusiastic, custom tour from a super friendly guide with great English and a fun personality
          Absolutely beautiful tour of Romania with our new friend Mihai, who was always enthusiastic about sharing knowledge of his home country. If you're comparing tours, know that Mihai and his company provide a customizable experience, in a comfortable vehicle, and he is honestly the best driver I've experienced in visits to over 65 countries. Driving the transfagarasan on this tour was an absolute delight, seeing the beauty of the countryside, the "real" Dracula castle, and several adorable brown bears along the way. Definitely my go to guide for my next visit!

          Really informative tour about a fascinating era of Romanian history
          We did the tour of the city of Bucharest to learn all about the communist history of the country in general and the city in particular. The tour covered the period from WWI right up until the revolution in 1989. The guide (Andreea) was knowledgeable and told us all about the city's development and how the Ceaușescu regime impacted that. She covered a lot of information about how the people experienced life during that time. A real must for lovers of this period of history.

          We hired Mihai for 6 days for Bucharest and Transylvania. He was wonderful. We saw everything we wanted to see and some other things he suggested. His English is perfect. He was prompt for each pickup and he was even able to book some hotels for us. He rented a Mercedes minivan for us. We were two couples seeing Romania for vacation. He is extremely knowledgeable about the country. I would recommend him without reservation for anyone planning to visit Romania.

          Victor saved the day.
          First and foremost, our guide Victor was excellent. Lots of information, helpful and always making sure we were pleased. The tour itself was okay. Bran's Castle/Fortress was lots of climbing, stairs and ramps, and not particularly interesting, IMHO. It was built as a fortress and so it is difficult to enter. Brasov was "just a town" It was a long drive (2:45) to the area, both directions. If not for Victor, it would have been a great poor tour.

          An Unforgettable and very special 14 day tour of Romania
          We have just returned from a 14 day private tour of Romania organised by Mihai from I Travel In Romania. We had the most wonderful time. We saw and experienced so much and a lot of it was down to Mihai who is a fantastic tour guide. His passion for his homeland, amazing knowledge of its history and culture and his willingness to go the extra mile when he knew we were particularly interested in something really made the holiday. He is a fantastic ambassador for Romania and helped us make memories we will always cherish. Due to other commitments, he couldn't be our guide for the whole trip, but the 2 other people he lined up for us were also excellent. It's so hard to pick out highlights, but some favourites include the Maramures region where we met locals scything the grass and were invited to meet one old lady's pigs! We also loved watching another lady hand painting some eggs, which was so incredibly skillful and visiting a woollen mill where they made rugs still powered by a waterwheel. Romania is also famous for its painted monasteries and wooden churches which we really appreciated especially as Mihai arranged an off the cuff memorable private tour with a nun for one church and our guide for the wooden church in Breb burst into spontaneous song which brought tears to the eyes. I particularly liked the historical aspect of the trip and enjoyed following in the footsteps of the four generations of the royal family. Of course, we saw some spectacular scenery too and finished on a real high for us doing some bird spotting in the Danube delta which I highly recommend. Mihai was extremely efficient from the get go when I first initiated contact with him and tweaked the private tour to suit our interests and dates. He always responded to any queries very quickly and did his best to ensure that we were satisfied at all times. I can't recommend this tour or Mihai's Company, I Travel In Romania, enough.

          An Excellent Bucharest Overview
          This whistle stop long day tour really does give a full insight to Bucharest and Romania as a whole. The Romanian village stop brings the rural Romania aspect to you, literally, and provides a little rushed but informative outlook on Romanian life. Leaving the city centre, you visit a monetary, impressive and historic. Then off to the car collection, was not really fussed about this element until we got there, really very impressive and worth the visit. Then it’s the palaces and the Parliament Palace tour, an essential visit re-enforcing the historic/communism aspects already covered by Mihai our guide during the tour. It is a full 8-9 hours so arrive fresh. Lunch in a local restaurant was perfect for atmosphere and quality of local food. Mici is a must try if you like sausage. You will need cash for all entrance fees and lunch in addition to tour price. Budget for around an on the day total of 200 Lei or £36 per person including lunch. A very worthwhile trip if visiting Romania for the first time. Our guide recommended 2 local restaurants for local food, we tried both of them, and both were excellent. Thank you Mihai. BeLu.

          Superb personal tour. Highly recommended!
          Our tour with Mihai was fantastic!!! Not only did we see the sights and learn history along the way, but we also learned about life, culture, education, and society in Romania today. Mihai was generous in providing his personal story so that we could fully appreciate his country. In every way, his tourism expertise and services were superb. My husband and I highly recommend him.

          Good overview of Bucharest
          Mihai is a very good tour guide. He was able to give the correct amount of information so that it was not overwhelming but still learned a lot. The places visited were as advertised, so you can expect to see all the places with a nice amount of time at each. He is a very safe driver. There is flexibility as it is private.

          Loved our trip to lovely Romania
          We just returned from our wonderful trip to Romania. Alin was our guide. He did a great job showing us the beauty of his country. The trip was perfect in every way. We were able to experience interactions with locals that would have not been possible without him.

          Transylvania private tour
          We did this 4 day private Transylvania tour along with another couple with Mihai from Bucharest prior to our river cruise and it was beyond our expectations. From our initial email to the last (and we sent many inquiring about the tour) Mihai's responses were always prompt and very helpful. You will feel like you are travelling with your best friend or a family member. He knows Romania in detail and provides extraordinary knowledge of his beautiful country. He is very flexible as we added a trip to Villa Vinea Winery which was wonderful and worth the side trip. He offers several choices for accommodations, all of which are unique in their own ways. After reflecting on our 21 day river cruise from Bucharest to Amsterdam, we have to say that this tour with Mihai to Transylvania was at the top of the list of our most memorable experiences ever. Mihai has a passion for sharing his country with visitors. If you want a relaxed and educational tour of Transylvania, Romania look no further than Mihai.

          Ten days of catered fun and laughs with Mihai
          My wife and I took a ten-day private tour with I Travel in Romania and Mihai was our guide. The trip was booked by my brother and highly recommended his company, and he did not disappoint. My brother worked with Mihai on planning everything and many surprises were lined up but one surprise my brother didn't know about was attending a traditional Romanian wedding. That experience was a once in a lifetime experience. That's not all We did but one of the many things that was planned that words can't express being part of. We visited castles, citadels, weavers, churches, a blacksmith, sheep farm, villages, Prince Charles' home, salt mine, train ride, communist prison museum followed by a visit to the Ukraine border and the list goes on. We ate dinner with the locals on a few occasions and the hotels were handpicked to our desires. Mihai found out We are lovers of handcrafted items and even catered things around that along with slowing the pace down for my wife that has some medical conditions. We had fun and felt safe the entire stay. It was also nice to see Mihais love for the cats and dogs as well as his fellow countrymen.
