Autumn is a great time to visit Transylvania. One of the highlights for me was the mountain roads and seeing the bright autumn colours in the forests. The scenery is spectacular! Bogdan is an excellent tour guide who entertained me with his stories and knowledge of the castles. He is able to explain the history of the region and to answer any questions. Due to COVID, the castles were not crowded and the lines were short. The cold misty weather when I visited Bran Castle added to the spooky atmosphere.

This was not intended to be a private tour, but it ended up being so. I was solo traveling Romania and wanted very specific things to be included in the day - this was a tour that had it all. As a new tour option, not a lot of people had booked it, so I ended up being the only one for the day. I had the time of my life with Mimi! She came and picked me up at the meet up location. We started with the bear sanctuary. Very informative, you will see rescued bears up close and personal. We then made the trip to the next two castles as well as stopping for a brief lunch. I truly felt like I had a friend by my side experiencing the castle tours with me. During the car rides, I would ask her questions about Romania: the history, the culture, the people. Anything I asked, she would give me a very thoughtful and detailed answer. I learned about her life, which was an inspiration in itself. I had studied abroad for a time in Ireland and it turns out she had lived in Ireland for 10 years! She took the scenic route and we showed each other different music. I truly enjoyed myself all day long and was sad to see the day come to an end. I don't think I've ever had a better tour.

We had contacted Bogdan Ghenoiu of Discovery Tours several months before we would be in Romania. We asked him if he would be able to customize our tour including all of the tourist sights but also two of the cities where my relatives were living before the communist takeover. He readily agreed and we sent him as much information as we had regarding our relatives. Bogdan met us at our hotel in Bucharest and off we went. Bogdan had arranged everything including our hotel accomodations which were included in the tour price. We would not have been able to find out anything re: relatives without Bogdan. He took us to the archives in several towns where we would discover new things about the relatives. His command of his native language and the questions he asked for us was invaluable. Bogdan was as interested in helping us find out about relatives as we were and was tireless at helping us. Even without our request to help us find our relatives, I would rate Bogdan as a superior guide. He went way above what he needed to do. We found where some of our relatives had lived and learned so much about Romania as well. Our accomodations were authentic and the food we ate was definitely hometown. We loved everything about this trip. Bogdan gave us so much information about life during communism as he "lived it" and life in Romania now. My wife and I would not want to do another trip to Romania without Bogdan. He certainly became a good friend while there and we wish him a blessed life and many tours.

My friend and I had the best time on our tour and learned so much! Our guide was absolutely brilliant, so knowledgable and incredibly friendly! I cannot recommend this trip enough to someone who is planning a trip to Romania! Seeing the rescued bears at the sanctuary was honestly a dream come true! Thank you so much for an amazing day and an experience we will never forget.
