    Highlight of our trip so far.
    This tour and the company was recommended to us by the hotel we were staying at. And ot did not disappoint. The car was good, but Daniel, our guide, was incredible. Easy going, extremely knowledgeable and friendly. No matter what we asked him, he knew the answer. The tour itself was very good, interesting, and informative. I'm so glad we took this tour and would not like to have missed it. I highly recommend it .

    Great guide and I am certain great tour
    I had the pleasure of interacting with Daniel a lot in his previous role, and know that his extensive knowledge, and friendly helpful attitude could only be a huge asset to someone seeking more knowledge and tours in Bucharest and Romania. I would recommend him to any international (or local!) traveller.

    Superb
    We had planned to hire a car or travel by train but decided to treat ourselves to a personal guide and we're so pleased we did. Daniel is a great guide (as well as being an excellent driver) - he is so knowledgeable about all things Romanian (and we quizzed him a lot!) and he guided us through some amazing sights and locations including the beautiful Sighosoara, Sibiu and Cluj as well as a monastery and an incredible salt mine. Absolutely fabulous experience hugely enhanced by our easy going guide, Daniel.

    Excellent Tour by Daniel
    What an educational day! Daniel was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide as he drove us to the Bear Sanctuary, Dracula's Castle, and Brasov. My friend and I were a bit surprised at the cold, snowy weather as we arrived at the Bear Sanctuary for our tour. It was a little chilly, but the experience was one of my favorites in Romania - watching the bears and other wildlife here and learning about their stories. Daniel was very knowledgeable about the local areas and easily answered our questions about Romania as well. We also had a wonderful time exploring Dracula's castle and Brasov with Daniel as an informative guide. He took us to a quaint corner restaurant as well with excellent food. On our way back to Bucharest, we were also able to make an impromptu stop at the filming location of Wednesday's castle as well. We had a very memorable and enjoyable day with Daniel as a safe driver and informative guide.

    Last minute birthday treat
    My husband booked this very last minute for my birthday as our original trip had fallen through the night before and we had been let down. I am so glad he did because from picking us up to dropping us off, Alin and Oana were amazing!! They were so friendly and polite, and they made the whole day a fantastic experience. We really could not have asked for anything more. The knowledge they shared with us throughout the whole day was second to none. They really did have us at ease from the first instance. Thank you ever so much for making it a trip to remember. The best day or our holiday by far.

    Great Full Day of Sight Seeing and Historical Discoveries!!!
    I had a day to spend on my own and found this tour online and read the reviews and took a leap of faith not having done a tour like this before. I can only reiterate what everyone else has said, Bucharest is a place filled with history and is absolutely stunning. But... Daniel really made the difference his passion and adoration for his country is outstanding as is his knowledge about both the poilitcal and historical past is fascintating. Daniel took me on the Dracula Castle and Peles tour and while both sites were breathtaking and draw droppingly beautiful, Daniel chose a great route for us to see the great mountain views and villages on the way. Truly a great custodian of Romania and a fantastic guide. I highly reccomend Daniel for any tour.

    A GREAT tour but an even better tourguide-Daniel
    Bucharest is a must to see and our time with Daniel was the best part of our vacation We stayed at the Hilton Athenee which is walking distance from the Revolution Square and has incredible history from WW2. It was also a major part of the 1989 revolution, the building next door still has bullet holes. We took a city tour with Daniel including walking in the Revolution Square across from the communist headquarters Daniel is the most knowledgeable guide that we have ever had and has personal insite that is incredible. The next day he took us to the Peles Castle and Dracula Castle and stopped for coffee in Brasov in Transylvania which is so beautiful. I HIGHLY recommend this tour but whichever you choose, it is Daniel that makes the perfect day, with the depth of his knowledge. He is kind and funny and makes the trip 1000 times better than just the views or information.

    Bears and Vampires? A Win Win!
    My original booked tour for this combo canceled on me, less than 10 hours beforehand, since I was the only one on the tour. I scrambled in my hotel room to find another company that offered this combo, as I REALLY wanted to go to the sanctuary. I mean vampires and bears? What an amazing combo! So when I found these guys, I booked it immediately. They emailed me a little while later saying I was the only one on the tour, but they would honor it! I was picked up by Nicolas, and he was a great guide! He didn't just drive me to each place; he went into the castle with me, pointed out additional places and information and also did a few photo op's. It was a long day and a lot of walking, but so worth it! Castle Bran is always crowded, so be prepared for that. The Libearty Bear Sanctuary requires that you pay an entrance fee, but it's minimal, and so worth it! Over 100+ bears in this amazing place! Also stopped in the town of Brasov, which has great restaurants, German architecture and the Black Church. Nicolas made it enjoyable and I really thank this company for not canceling my trip!

This tour excelled in all respects. Daniel is a very knowledgeable and likeable guide, with very safe driving in a comfortable vehicle. We were so pleased to discover more of the history of Transylvania, and astonished at the authenticity of the Saxon villages.
Daniel was very flexible, so that if we wanted to adjust the schedule a little, he was fine with that.
We would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the authentic Transylvania, rather than the legendary myths, as it is an amazing and quite unique place.

Daniel Dumitru was the best guide that we had during our entire time in Europe. We felt that he was very personable and lightened every situation. The price of the tour, was completely worth every penny. If you are planning a trip to Romania, plan on a privet tour with Daniel.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with licensed guide Daniel Dumitru of Romania on the Map. He guided us in his comfortable car for 4 days touring in Bucharest, through the Saxon villages of Transylvania, to Sibiu, up the winding Transfagarasan Road in the Carpathian Mountains, followed by a return to Bucharest. My husband walks slowly with a cane and Daniel found places to visit that would allow him to see the important sights. We stayed at a comfortable country hotel and gasthouse in Transylvania and learned so much about the history of Romania and daily life from Daniel who speaks excellent English. Friends who visited Romania in Spring 2021 recommended Daniel's services to us and we were not disappointed. Highly recommend Daniel Dumitru as a guide who offers day trips and more throughout Romania.

Dear Mrs Marjorie, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your positive feedback on TripAdvisor platform. It was my real pleasure to tailor your trip so that it fits your husband walking requirements, but yet to include Transylvania's most authentic places! I loved guiding your around the country and sharing with you a piece of the Romanian true hospitality. I whish you lots of health and I look forward to welcoming you back to Romania for other interesting sights. Kind regards, Daniel
