          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.

          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.

          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.

          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.

          Bodgan is a great guide. He is super knowledgeable and very friendly. I’ve been to many castles and palaces around the world and Peles is now in my top 5. I wouldn’t hesitate to do the tour!

          Amazing tour!
          The bear sanctuary, Bran castle, and Rasnov tour was fantastic. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He gave us beak ground to everything we visited and a full guided tour of Bran Castle. We would recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience the local area.

        We had a great tour with Bogdan as he introduced us to the highlights of Transylvania. The pace was just fast enough to keep everyone engaged. Bogdan has a range of facts to share as well as interesting anecdotes.

        We had a wonderful introduction to Transylvania with Bogdan Ghenoiu of Transylvania Discovery Tours. We were able to set up a flexible tour for 4 of us in Bogdan's 8 seat van which was most comfortable. This was a pre tour for a Danube river trip and Bodgan was able to pick us up from the airport and deliver us to our Viking hotel at the end. Bogdan has excellent English skills and knows Transylvania very well. He gave us a free afternoon in Brasov in the middle of the tour which was most appreciated. He was able to get us to the front of the line in Bran and Peles castles which saved us much time. We had a local home cooked dinner on night 2 in Sibiel and Adrianna was our hostess at the B&B. We would do this tour again.

        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
