Absolutely stunning!!! Serban Riga is an amazing tour guide, he made every step of the way feel awesome! We felt like it was really our tour, he was really easy going if we wanted to stay somewhere longer or stop off somewhere to take photos! It's brilliant having someone who knows so much about the beautiful country of Romania!

My boyfriend and I had a lovely trip visiting the Peles Castle, Bran Castle and Brasov. Our guide Serban did an amazing job talking about the places in an interesting way. There was a lot of fun facts about places and items. The Peles Castle is by far the more interesting one, as the Bran Castle (Dracula Castle) is more marketing than a beautiful castle, which Serban also mentioned. The nature surrounding the mountains is stunning and worth the long drive. He and the driver Peter had a great sense of humor, and it was a fun tour even during transportation. The service was also great and there where room for small toilet breaks during transportation. We were on time during the whole tour and even arrived a bit earlier back in Bucharest as our group was precise with the deadlines given by Serban. Although there were a lot of mountains (and hair pin turns) Peter was a very professional driver and nobody on the tour got sick. We would highly recommend taking this tour with Travel Makers (and especially Serban and Peter) to other visitors.

It was fun and very informative experience to go on this trip with Serban. He picked us up right on time and first he drove us around Bucharest explaining the historical significance of several areas of town. He had many stories to tell, and always had a joke to go along with them making the environment in the vehicle very light and fun. On our way to the castles and Brasov he told stories about the history of Romania and had a lot of fun facts to add about eveything we saw. At Peles he took us through the castle room by room and was able to tell a story about nearly every room we were in, and the same goes for Bran caslte. In Brasov he walked us down to the Christmas markets and let us wander before moving on in the tour. At the end of the day he made sure to get us as close to our hotel as possible, along with the other folks in the vehicle. If you are looking for a tour guide to Transylvania that really knows his stuff, Serban is your guy. If you are Serban's boss, he deserves to have his salary doubled.
