We were having an extremly pleasant time in Bucharest thanks to Eugene who was giving us an exquist tour of the town. We discovered surprisingly diffent aspects of the rich rumanian history.
We particularily enjoyed the genuine passion of our tourist guide Eugene, who made us feel welcome and we apprechiated our stay.
Highly recommended!

It’s an unforgettable and wonderful experience leading by our great Guide Eugene. Eugene it’s a great and safe driver that has a great knowledge about the route of castle and the cities in the path of Transilvania . We have had one of our best days in a trip we enjoy the two castles and also the tour in Brasov leaded by the great Eugene. Thanks Eugene you make our day !

I booked a free walking tour in October 2014 in the old town of Bucharest. Eugen, our guide was fantastic! He was a walking enciclopaedia. I have learnt a lot of interesting things about my home town, Bucharest, that I had no idea. After this tour I see Bucharest in a different light and I love it more than before. I recommend Best of Romania tours for anyone who wants to look beyond what they see!

Eugene was tour guide . Picked up at our hotel.Excellent English, very helpful and friendly. Small group just four adults in comfortable modern mini bus. Visited Castle Peles which is incredible. Eugene took us around and gave detailed history of Castle. Then tour around local points in Transylvania onto old medieval town of Brasov . Beautiful town square for lunch with plenty of places to eat . Then to Bran castle made famous by Bram Stoker Dracula a must for vampire fans .Through out tour Eugene very helpful and professional. Would recommend this tour which you can book at Tourist info. in Old Town Bucharest

If you want an excellent personal tour of Romania or indeed a group tour, get in touch with this company. Eugen Apateanu gave us a fantastic history and tour of Transylvania. Peles castle and Bran castle (Draculas castle) and other parts of Romania. You can tailor make your trip as and what you want to see. He is so knowledgeable, interesting and a funny guy. I really recommend them if you are planning a visit . what i loved about this company was the personal touches that we received on our tour. Eugen could not be more kind and helpful. And he made sure we saw the best of Romania. I highly recommend this company above any other. We were let down by Viator at the last minute with only one day left in Romania, but Eugen stepped in and made sure we had a fab day. Thank you Eugen. Jill & Andy

First of all, if you ever travel to Bucharest and you are interested to visit the town and all the famous castles and cities close to Bucharest then try to find this guy named Eugen!
Amazing gentleman he will show you everything and tell you everything regarding the rich history of this country.
He loves his job and he is the best tourist guide we ever had.
So not much more to say on my side.
We came from Greece and we had an amazing day started at 8am and finished at 9pm.
Eugen is the name!

I was in Romania on work, since my wife had joined me, we also had the pleasure of going on this customised day trip with Eugene and a limited group of tourists. To say that the trip was excellent would be an understatement. The tour was very extensive, with great places to visit and a superb guide and host in the form of Eugene. He is a very good, well informed person, who also speaks many languages, being very useful for tourists. We would strongly recommend this tour to all travellers to Romania.

I booked Eugene thru the Tourist Information office in The Old Town.
I wanted to visit Vlad the Impalers grave at the island monestry in Snagov. I do not think a solo traveler could get there un aided or by public transport. Eugene picked me up at my hostel. This man is a fantastic guide . His car was immaculate, he spoke excellent English and translated anything I needed . The trip to Snagov was amazing. I was even introduced to one of the monks.
On the way back to Bucharest we stopped and many other interesting places. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done at a nice leisurely pace. I would Highly Recommend Eugene to any of my friends . He made my Romanian trip an absolute pleasure.

We made a travel in couple and we arranged with Eugen 2 tours.
A free tour around Bucharest city, he made our tour really comfortable and he was always worried about our comfort. He explained us a lot of information and answered all our questions.
The other one consisted on visit 2 famous castles, Bran castle and Peles Castle, visit Brasov city and Snagov Monastery too. We spent a whole day with him, he took us in our hotel at morning and left us there again at night. All this trip was in her car.
We are really glad to known her organitation and met him. He is a really honest, lovely and he enjoy her work.
We are sure that if we return to Romania, we will contact with him again to request him help to organize our trip.

Hicimos un viaje en pareja y contactamos con Eugen para hacer 2 tours.
Un free tour por Bucarest, en todo momento se preocupó por que entendiesemos todo y que estuvíesemos cómodos. Nos explicó un montón de cosas, así como nos respondió a todas las preguntas que le hicimos.
El otro tour consistió en la visita a dos castillos famosos de la región, castillo de Bran y castillo de Peles, la visita a la ciudad de Brasov y al monasterio de Snagov. Estuvimos un día completo con el, nos recogió por la mañana en el hotel y nos dejó por la noche. Todo el viaje fue en su coche.
Estamos muy contentos de haber conocido a su organización así como a Eugen. El es muy humilde, comunicativo y disfruta mucho con su trabajo.
Estamos seguros que si volvemos a Rumania, contactaremos con el para pedirle información y ayuda para planear nuestro viaje.

Eugen was a brilliant guide – very friendly, knowledgable and passionate about his job; and he went the extra mile whenever he could to make sure everyone from the tour group was comfortable and having a good time.

The tour started at 7:30am with a pickup from the hotel, and included a short coffee/toilet stop at a gas station after approximately an hour or two. From there we drove for another half an hour to our next stop and visited two castles before going for a city tour and ending the tour back in Bucharest city centre at approximately 10pm. Enough time was also allocated for souvenir shopping and small snack/toilet stops.

Some points to take note of regarding the tour:

1) The visit to the castles can be rather cold/wet as they are located within the mountain regions – an umbrella and sufficient insulation is recommended, although Eugen did kindly provided us umbrellas when it started to rain

2) Tours are to be paid in full in cash (either by local currency or euros, or both) after the tour before the drop off at the hotel

3) Portable chargers are definitely recommended if you actively use your phone to take pictures
