        Fantastic tour with a great mixture of nature, history and culture!
        What a fantastic tour with a great mixture of nature, history and culture. Our guide, Valentin, was brilliant - you can tell he is very passionate about what he does and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed learning about the history of Romania and the attractions we visited. Liberty Bear Sanctuary is a wonderful place with a beautiful mission. The setting and interior of Peles castle is incredible - an absolute must-see when in Romania!! Thank you for a great experience!

        Great Tour!
        Vlad was knowledgeable and a great story-teller. Kept me captivated with Brasov's vast history at every turn! He also has a very nice personality and will make you feel comfortable, even if you're travelling solo!

        Excellent tour; great guide
        Great walking tour. Well-paced. Vlad did an outstanding job of tailoring the tour to our interests; staying longer at some places, shorter time at others. Also very patient with our walking a bit slower.

        Great experience and very informative guide!
        We had a great time on this tour. Our guide, Vlad, was very knowledgeable and kind. He picked us up and, on the way to the lookout (which from Brasov takes around one hour), shared a lot of information on the bears and their lives, as well as on Romania, its people, and culture. He was happy to answer all of our questions. In the lookout, we were lucky and even got to see a bear with her cub! You can observe the wildlife from a safe distance and take pictures (make sure your camera does not click, though, as this might be disturbing the silence and the bears might hear you and shy away). Ay the spot, Vlad and the ranger quietly provided us with more information on the bears we were seeing. Overall, a unique experience and a great guidance which we highly recommend!

        Engaging comprehensive tour of Brasov
        Overall, i think this is a very well organized tour and would recommend to everyone who visits Brasov! The three hour tour was comprehensive, covering the history (both old and modern), all the important sites, and current life. He is a native of Brasov so very knowledgable of the area. The history bits were great. I especially liked his vivid explanation on how the city defense worked during the medieval times. Although the tour is filled with lots of information, he breaks them down in an efficient and engaging way.

        Highly recommended walking tour
        Vlad was prompt, friendly and hugely knowledgeable. The walking tour of the old city was a perfect introduction to our time in Brasov and gave us a real sense of the place and its history before our first day was even out. Highly recommended.

        Brilliant tour of the main things to see in Brasov
        This was a brilliant tour, exploring all the main points of Brasov in just one morning. Vlad was an excellent guide and was very knowledgeable, especially about the best things to do in and around Brasov, throughout the year (he's a ski instructor too!). There is quite a bit of walking (about 10,000 steps in 3 hours), including a fair amount of walking uphill (mainly up to the black and white towers). Vlad had a great recommedation for an ice cream shop, we tried it later in our trip and it was lovely

        Great day trip from Braşov
        We really enjoyed our day trip to see the bear rehab center followed by Bran Castle. Vlad also found time to take us to an artisanal Palinca distillery and we also had a lovely walk around the Raznov citadel. Vlad’s knowledge of Romanian history really put things into context

        Vert nice, we saw 5 bears
        Very nice, we saw 5 different bears for more than an hour. Vlad (from eTours) is in contact with the ranger that take you to the hide out in the park. Vlad’s explanations on bears are very interesting.

        Snowboard Experience ❄️🩵
        My partner and I had our first ever snowboard experience at Poiana Brasov. Vlad was our instructor, he was super nice and very easy going. I was extremely nervous at the start but by the end of our lessons I really started to enjoy the sport. He is very good at what he does and gives great instructions!:) He was very informative and gave quick responses over text and in real life to all our queries! The views of the mountains is also a bonus. It is so beautiful to have so much nature around you while snowboarding.⛰️ We both had a great experience and we can’t wait to go again!💛❄️🏂

      I took the tour except for the Bran Castle, substitute is the watermill ( interesting history). Vlad is highly knowledgeable, helpful, accommodating, friendly, a tour guide that is all in one, He helped me be able to cut cost & join the tour w/ someone.You need to be @ least 2 or else pay it as a 1=2.Along the way we made stops to the small shops,waterfalls,the highway, lake. I didnt feel rushed, had enough of pictures, adequate time. Good conversation along the way, he imparted a lot about his knowledge about his country, places.The car is clean, free water & apples🙂. it's an amazing experience. It's also better to call to book, if you have any questions.Thanks Vlad & more power to Etours.😘😘

      We had a great tour with Florin. The views from the cable car up to Balea lake are absolutely stunning! Florin is professional, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. It was fun to see how much Bran castle has changed since I was last in the region! I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience the beauty of the Carpathian mountains.

      Vlad is an engaging and knowledgeable tour guide, thoroughly recommend!

      We couldn’t do the highway trip because visibility was too bad, but Vlad gave us options for an alternative itinerary and we ended up having a great day regardless. He had vast knowledge of the castles we went to, including stopping at some places with great views because we said we were interested in photographing the landscape.

      If we come back to Brasov we would love to do another tour with Vlad.
