          Excellent guided tour through Timisoara with Ludovic Satmari. Excellent storyteller and excellent guide through history. After this walk with Ludovic we need another trip to Timisoara in order to discover all the locations. Keep up the good work!

          One of the best experiences one can have in Timisoara
          One of the best experiences one can have in Timisoara - we got to find out interesting information & discover new places, meet new people and have a lot of fun. Ludovic, our guide, is super knowledgeable and so-so fun. I really liked his humour and the way in which he delivered the information and conducted the tour. I warmly recommend him as a guide and the tour for everyone visiting the city!

          A must do trip to Corvin Castle and Turda salt mine.
          Sergiu helped us having such an incredible time at Turda salt mine and Corvin Castle. I admire his knowledge and his morals and how easy going he is. Thank you so much for making our experience amazing! As for the the salt mine and the castle, its a must go for everyone! Its just incredible and pictures wont do any justice for the places!

          Perfect 2-3 h tour
          Dan is a perfect guide - a huge amount of information, many of them surprising (from details on the ancient Turkish baths to the dramatic moments of the 1989 Revolution), accommodating the tourists' personality, a sense of humour, availability - basically, everything you need to understand a lot about the history, importance and charm of Timisoara. It will make you want to come back.

          Well organized and informative
          We did the Classic Timișoara tour with Sergiu from 5:00-7:00 PM (we wanted to end a little early due to having kids under the age of 10). I booked and paid online via the website Timisoaracitytours.com. Sergiu was prompt, well organized, patient with our children, and the tour was informative. The evening hours were very relaxing. Our children enjoyed seeing the cannonballs stuck in the walls. Some of the highlights were learning about the hamam walls underneath Piața Libertății and the beautiful architecture in Piata Unirii like the pharmacy and the Serbian buildings. We enjoyed the classic tour and would highly recommend. Try to book in advance.

          An unforgettable experience you don’t want to miss!
          I cannot recommend this tour enough! Me and my partner had Sergiu as our guide and he was amazing! We had lots of interesting conversations on the way to the villages of Banat and answered any questions we had! We hiked up the mountains to the village and had an amazing traditional Romanian lunch! The tour was very informative and educational, also very impressive at how self sufficient these villages were! When I’m back in Romania I will definitely book another tour if not the same one!

          Marius was an exceptional guide. The tour was absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend it to everyone visiting. I learnt so much and saw so many things that I would have overlooked if exploring the city alone. Thanks again, Marius!

          The guide was really nice and gave an interesting tour. Sergio was open for questions and seemed happy to answer them all. I can really recommend this tour to get an first impression of the city. Even though it was our 3rd day, we were able to learn many new interesting facts and insights.

          Incredible Timisoara Tour with Marius!
          Best tour ever with Marius! Who knew Timisoara was the center of all things Romanian. We did not and we are so glad we decided on a whim to make it one of our stops. Marius was amazingly insightful and presented the history of Timisoara in a meaningful, succinct way, that left us speechless. In the end, we discovered Timisoara led the Romanian Communist revolt in 1989, lost a large number of residents, and the rest you really need to go to learn for yourself. It really is incredible. We visited an unbelievable Communism era museum that you would never find on your own, took a boat up the canal to other districts in Timisoara, had a coffee in a fun neighborhood, and visited a lively market. Go and learn the history for yourself. See the bullet holes that led to so many deaths. You will not forget it! Timisoara also has a vibrant old town, with beautifully lit streets and dozens of outdoor restaurants and churches. We stayed at Old Town Hotel, which was steps from everything and contemporary, and was gorgeous inside. It also provided an incredible free breakfast. Loved, loved, loved it!

        We went to Sibiu with Sergio who is a wonderful guide and also an excellent driver. He provided us with lots of information. Sibiu is a beautiful city which we really enjoyed visiting. On our way back to Timisoara we took a tour of Corvin Castle which also was a very interesting place to visit. Even though it takes almost 3 hours to get to Sibiu, it was not boring for a single moment because Sergio did not get tired answering all our questions. It was a wonderful day!

        Sergiu Dănilă was our guide for a three day car trip to Corvin Castle, Sibiu, Sighisoara and Maramureș. Sergiu was an excellent guide. Very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. We have had guides in many countries and Sergiu is the best. We felt prepared for every stop so that our experiences meant more. And our memories will as well.

        This tour is going to take you back to simpler times. The Corvins' castle and all the surroundings were beautiful and our guide, Ludovic was a walking encyclopedia! Sibiu is a colourful city, a very nice surprise for all the group and the information offered were covering a lot of details, both myths and historical facts.
        I recommend it as I am sure we would have missed a lot of small details throughout the day if we wouldn't have had the guide.
