Timisoara, Romania7 contributions6 helpful votes
I already took part in 3 tours around different parts of Timisoara lead by Alexandra and each time I have been both educated and entertained. I can full heartedly recommend her services. The tours are much more then just listing random historic facts, everything is put into perspective within European context of the time and completed with many interesting annectodes about local people of the past. All of this is delivered in a friendly, professional and engaging way with a lot of pasion.

Our company had the pleasure of working with Alexandra multiple times when we had colleagues from other countries visit Timisoara. They loved the insights into the city Alexandra provided and I attended the tour multiple times myself and it never gets old! This is the best way to learn about the city while getting to walk around and taking in the sights. I highly recommend it!

I asked Alexandra to find my Great Great Grandfather's birth record in Oravita. It was thought that the church records for this time period were lost, but Alexandra was able to get the record from a forgotten record book hidden and stored in the Roman Catholic diocese. She even found is confirmation record, which was a bonus I didn't expect. She was able to have documents translated, is friendly, professional and thorough. I highly recommend Alexandra.

We had a great time with Alexandra. She took my 8 year old daughter and I around Timisoara and nearby villages. She was very flexible and patient with my last minute plans and with my travel-weary kid. She made the most of our time and we left feeling like we had a good sense of the history of Timisoara, as well as a glimpse into our family history in the region. Her services are a great investment if you want to get the most out of your time in Timisoara and/or want to do a genealogy tour in the Banat region.
