          Fascinating 7 day tour , brilliant Guide/driver. Definitely recommend
          We have completed the seven day tour of Transylvania and Mutamures and Bucovona. Our driver was Alina and she was remarkable, very knowledgeable, a fabulous driver, bearing in mind all the mountains we had to go over. All the places we stayed at were first rate we had asked for twin bedded rooms with ensuite, and that’s what we had. In the guesthouses, the food was really lovely and traditional and in Brasov the owner of the guest house we were staying in directed us to a very good restaurant about 100 yards away, and we went to the nearby bakery for breakfast as the breakfast in Casa Timar in Brasov was not up to standard and like everywhere else. Bogdan, who is the owner of this company has put together a fantastic tour, and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to visit Transylvania and Romania

          Definitely recommend this guide and tour
          Our 4 day private tour around Transylvania with Bogdan of Transylvania Discovery Tours was excellent. These 4 days in Romania were the highlight of our Eastern European trip. The planning was well done and Bogdan was flexible for changes we wanted. Bogdan was very pleasant to talk with and he answered all our questions with excellent English. He gave just the right amount of information: enough to be interesting and not too much that we nodded off. (Although much of the info is available from Wikipedia, it is still more fun to hear it from a guide.) He knew all the tricks for where to park and how to skip the line. Most importantly, he is an excellent driver. I am usually a nervous passenger but was not with him, even though we were in the car many hours as distances are longer than you might expect. He never seemed tired even though the days were sometimes long. The experience provided excellent value considering the amount of places we saw. I would definitely recommend Bogdan as a guide.

          Depth and Breadth of Romania
          The man, and our guide, Bogdan Ghenoiu is more than a creative problem-solving travel guide, more than an interesting sociable light-hearted man of the world, more than a polite knowledgeable educator of all things Romanian. He is honest. He is reliable. And he is trustworthy. How else can I express our family’s appreciation of the safety and clarity that we felt from being with him. He communicated with us regarding which destinations to visit, advised us on restaurants and provided lodgings that gave us a deep understanding of the people and history of Romania. One of his selected overnight accommodations proved to be the most memorable and satisfying. It was a family home (children gone, pursuing their lives) with the father and mother running a clean, simple bed & breakfast with dinner included. And what a dinner it was! Adriana is a fantastic cook. The food was so well made, easily surpassing what you can find in any restaurant. Homemade meals of traditional meats and soups, salads and desserts. The bread and cheese or cakes sometimes came in from a neighbor-villager in barter for the work the father did for others in the community. Everyone in our party agreed we were lucky: we got to spend two nights there! We will never forget Bogdan and the journey we shared. We saw the real Romania with him as our touchstone.

          Castles without crowds
          This was one of the best tours I've been on. It was a comfortable ride to the castles with history and stories told to us along the way. Bogden was knowledgeable and funny. He let us do what we wanted at our pace and never rushed us. He also knew how to avoid the big bus tours! I would highly recommend him for your next tour.

          Amazing trip!
          The trip was amazing! Our tour guide and driver was very nice and informative too. The bear sanctuary was amazing and as was draculas castle. Although the fortress is actually closed to the public and will be indefinitely, so you can only look at it from the outside, which it should have told you this before you book and go. Nonetheless would recommend!

          What an incredible day. We were fortunate there were no others in our party as it made the experience more memorable. Bogdan was a fantastic guide. Felt like a friend taking us around. Highly recommended!

          Three castles in one day!
          Seeing all three castles was a great day's adventure. What made it extra special was Bogdan. He was fun, personable and informative.

          Just enjoy
          We had a great day with our guide Bogdan. He is friendly and knows a lot about the places visited and Romanian history in general. We liked the castle and the sanctuary. Rasnov is closed and so not much to see there. Anyway; thanks a lot!

          We decided very spontanously for the trip and did not regret it. Bogdan is a friendly and patient guide. He knows a lot about the area and Romania in general, we can highly recommend him. Thanks to him and the Bran castle and the sanctuary we had a lovely day. I wouldn't say that Rasnov is worth going to.

          Must-do tour from Brasov
          A must-do tour if you're staying in Brasov. The bear sanctuary was amazing, with a very emotional history - we ended up adopting a bear. This was a great process, with the sanctuary giving us a framed photo of our bear on the "adoption certificate" to take away with us. Adrian was a fantastic tour guide, making sure we were comfortable and happy throughout the day. He waited for us to adopt our bear after the bear sanctuary, and gave a great recommendation for lunch outside Bran Castle. Bran Castle itself had lots of things that were oriented towards kids, so would be a great day out for families too. He even bought us dessert. There's a lot of flexibility throughout the day, such as walking down Rasnov mountain or getting the cable cars down. Highly recommend.

          România experience
          We had both Adrian and Bogan as our guide s, both extremely knowledgeable, provided lots of information and also pleasant company. Accommodation was fine. We were perhaps a little rushed at Bran castle and it was very busy as holiday weekend. Could probably drop off Rasnov fortress as you don’t really see much and add more time in Brasov. Overall we had a good trip

          Great option for private tour of Romania, tailored to your preferences
          I'm not sure which tour I did, but went to Brasov, Bran castle, peles castle, bierten, sibiu, corvin castle, sghisoara, viscri and one other place that has slipped my mind and it was excellent. Really enjoyed the fortified churches and castles and learning about the history tha many this familiar. Bogdan was excellent at sharing his knowledge and country. I went in mid March. I suspect had I gone a few weeks later, the trees might have had leaves. But I also think there might be more tourists. So I think it was a good time yo go.

        My sister and I had an amazing 3 day tour of the best of Transylvania. Bogdan is a very professional guide, knowledgeable about the history and culture of the area, as well as a responsible driver. He was very patient in answering our questions, and making sure we got the most out of our visit to fascinating Transylvania. In addition, he is very funny and kind. I can't wait to go back with the rest of my family, and we will definitely be taking the tour with Bogdan again.

        We arranged a private tour with Bogdan to be picked up in Bucharest at the airport - taken to Brasov where we spent four nights. We were taken the next three days to Viscri - Sighisoara - Rasnov Fortress - Bran Castle - Prejmer Fortified Churches - Harman Church and a walking tour of Brasov - and back to Burcharest airport. On the way to Brasov we stopped to see the outside of Peles Castle, unfortunately it was closed on Monday. We chose not to go see the bears!
        Brasov is a wonderful city to walk around and has excellent restaurants. We enjoyed it very much and really appreciated the walk around the old city walls, which gave us a different view of the city than the downtown area - it is a beautiful, charming city.
        Bogdan is full of a wealth of information and history. I told him I hated driving fast - and he did a magnificent job of not speeding :) Our favorites (but don't anything) were Viscri, Sighisoara, Rasnov Fortress, Harman & Prejmer fortified churches...that's almost all. Everyone has to see Bran Castle - which is nice, but we preferred the quieter other places. I think you can also hire Bogdan to go further afield for longer tours. His wonderful wife helped guide us too - both are so delightful that you hate to say goodbye.
