          Poorly setup
          The directions to the bus were too vague for newcomers to Bucharest. We arrived at the meeting point? in time for the tour but there was no operator outside, no name on the bus, so we did not realize we were at the correct spot. We kept walking, went way out of our way until a man kindly took us back to the right area. There were no buses to be seen; they had left. None of us was sure exactly where the pickup spot was. The tour should have a sign out on the street. I cannot review the tour, as we did not get it. The preliminary contacts were also unsatisfactory -- I had to ask the hotel desk how to get to the spot. They gave me a map which was not detailed enough -- the same map the tour provided. Shame on you! We should get our money back because the fault was yours. We booked extra days in Bucharest specially for this tour, to which we were looking forward.

          Unsafe driving
          The trip itself was very interesting, and the guide gave good information, once we were at the sites . But he drove too fast, looked at his phone while driving, and did not suggest seat rotation in the small minivan. As a result, the same 2 people occupied the front seat all day , and no one else had a clear view.

          Terrible experience
          The tour operator cancelled our trip for no reason. Woke up early just to not be allowed onto the bus despite showing the confirmation email.

          Amazing sights and excellent tour guide
          I’ve personally visited the locations on the tour before, however going with a guide made the journey and locations so much better for my friend’s first time in Romania and even for myself. Dani was the best tour guide we could ask for: friendly, funny, engaging, but also professional and well organised too. Definitely a must experience

          Enjoyable tour with a good tour guide!
          Today we went on a day trip to Transylvania from Bucharest with One Excellence Tours. Our tour guide is Dani; he did a splendid job for the whole group! He made a good explanation in Peles Castle, maintained a great atmosphere for the whole group, and answered all types of answers from us. Unfortunately, on our way back to Bucharest, we met an accident in which a couple put their seat back very low on the back side which affected the other travelers. It is Dani again that stopped the whole accident and provided a really good solution (maybe not for the rude couple, but for the other travelers). Thanks Dani for the great performance as our tour guide!

          Amazing experience
          The guide was very friendly. The bus is in good conditions. The route is perfect to enjoy! We had a break for lunch. The information provided by the guide was very informative.

          Absolute must for any Bucharest trip
          Dani was a great guide! One of the few places in the world where bad weather and rain actually adds to the ambiance of the castles and landscape. Rain was definitely annoying but all the sights were worth getting wet!

          Perfect 2 days in Transylvania
          This was our first visit to Romania and had wanted to spend more time in Transylvania rather than Bucharest to see some more of the history and culture of the country. We resisted the temptation of a long one day tour and booked this tour instead as we felt it would give us a better perspective (the tour company also does a 3 day tour which may be better if you have the time). We booked directly with the company and paid in advance. We received good communication prior to the trip both from the owner and our tour guide. We met Emanuel with his burgundy minibus outside the Hilton Garden Inn in the Old Town and within a few minutes we could tell that we would enjoy his company and knowledge. We were the only people on this particular tour so this gave us good access to Emanuel and gave us a little more flexibility on timings when we had some bad luck with heavy rain! We visited some great towns, palaces and churches over 2 full days and learnt so much. Highlights for me were the beautiful Peles Palace and the central areas of Brasov and Sibiu although everywhere was great. Emanuel gave us some good recommendations for lunch on both days and we enjoyed staying at the hotel in Sighisoara. Despite taking a more leisurely 2 days for the tour it is still 2 long days as you get back to Bucharest at 7pm (or later if you don’t have good luck with the traffic). Overall throughly recommended and Emanuel deserves a medal for 2 days of driving and commentary!

          5/5!! Marius was awesome, best & funny tour guide! Highly recommend. I loved that on the way back, we took the “back roads” and we got a GORGEOUS view of the mountains and people that live there!

          A Journey Into Romanian History
          An excellent day trip visiting some beautiful castles. We had an excellent driver/guide Sergiu who gave us lots of history and information. Peles Castle was stunning inside and out. Dracula's castle was great from the outside, but inside was quite dull. That was the only disappointment on this excellent day trip.

          Enjoyable day out
          Andrei was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and easy to get along with. I received a text the day before confirming the pick up point and he was punctual. I really enjoyed the trip, it was a long day but really worth it. I preferred the smaller group size too as I got to know people and it was a really nice experience as my first solo trip.

          Best experience in Romania
          By far the best experience we had while in Romania. Our day was full and we managed to see the countryside of Romania and of course the must see attractions. Our driver Alex was great making sure you will have a great time and answer every question you might have. But also he knows exactly the best hours to arrive on each sight so we can avoid the queues. Overall a great experience. Congrats

          Stunning castles and beautiful country
          Stunning mountains and absolutely gorgeous castles and towns. We had a great tour guide and told us about everything and was super friendly and funny. He knew his history and that was great a d showed us little things around each area. He is from that area, so it was an added bonus that he knew little thing's maybe other guides don't.w

          Thanks Dani!
          The guide was well experienced and very knowledgeable. The tour was not too controlling but very well informed. I didn’t feel nervous at all being in a foreign country and enjoyed the beautiful culture of Romania.

        We enjoyed over the 3 days the smooth organizational easyness (the nice car, the permanent adjusting to external changes by Ovi and his Professional handling of all aspects).
        Furthermore, Ovi spoke an excellent English, and could answer all questions from all Fields of interest - from historical, to geographical, historical and political). So we learnt quite a
        lot on the places and buildings visited and also on the Country of Rumania and its people.

        Also, he introduced us to the Rumanian food and beverages. Apart from his Professional capabilities also his pleasant personality made us enjoy every Moment of our Tour to Sinaia, Brasov and lots of
        Places in Bukarest.

        Thank you and Ovi for a unique and memorable experience in Rumania.
