Details make the difference is something that definitely describes Traian, he went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had a great experience. Definitely would recommend. As for the trip, definitely wear hiking boots, I wore converse and it was a bit more difficult to hike up there. It can also get a bit chilly and weather definitely changes fast, from sunny to cloudy and potentially rainy, so definitely be prepared for that.

Our hotel arranged the trip with this company. Out tour guide was prompt, courteous and extremely knowledgeable. We initially booked the 2 castle trip but he recommended also visiting Peleş castle and I am so very glad that we did. We had a wonderful day and learned a lot about the history of this fascinating place. We had planned to return to Bucharest by train and taxi but our guide organised a direct transfer with himself for a reasonable price and it was a much easier and comfortable way to travel.

This tour was really wonderful. My father and I absolutely loved it and would 100% recommend it to anyone. Traian is an amazing guide. He is a really special kind of person, really he is the perfect guide. He is unique and made the trip extremely memorable. This tour with Traian gives you something special that you don't get with the bigger tours. I would definitely return to Romania and he would be the first person I would contact because I would want to do a guided hike. A huge thank you to Traian - I could listen to him for weeks and not get tired.
