My wife and I recently completed a 9-day personalized trip to Romania with Transylvanian Tours founder Gelu Trandifir. Our trip was a great success. We have many fond memories of Romania.
Gelu and our driver Mihai were excellent guides – they have a great knowledge of Romania and have a passion for introducing their country. And a wonderful country it is – from the medieval towns of Sibiu, Sighisoara, and Brasov, the castles of Bran and Peles, the still-rustic regions of Maramures and Bucovina, and the spectacular mountain highways like the Transfagarasan Mountain Road.
We saw a bit of everything – historic churches and fortified villages, a working watermill, famous castles, and street festivals. Gelu led is on a leisurely but dramatic nature walk of Zarnesti Gorge in Piatra Craiului National Park. He worked tirelessly to show and explain the best of his country. Still, for us, the best part of the trip was meeting local people.
The entire trip was well planned and executed -- our hotels were centrally located, clean and well-appointed. We could step out of the hotel for a neighborhood walk or to find a nearby local restaurant. And Gelu’s recommendations never disappointed.
We highly recommend Transylvanian Tours.
