We took two tours with this great company at the end of May: Land of Fagaras, because we fancied something a little off the beaten track, and a large group tour to Rasnov, Bran Castle and Brasov with lunch included. Both tours were immensely enjoyable, my favourite was Land of Fagaras which was really varied with stops in lovely rural places such as picturesque mills run by welcoming families, a monastery, stud farm and a fortress with a moat. The restaurants on both tours were superb, Bogdan certainly knows where the best places are and is friendly, laid-back and flexible, besides having great English. He really makes sure you get lots of value out of the tour. Both tours were very reasonably priced, and if I come back to the region I will definitely want to travel with this company again as they gave us great memories of Romania!

We took a 1 day tour of Transylvania (from Brasov) with Bogdan in November 2012 and found him to be a fantastic tour guide. Initlally we thought we'd try and do all the sights by public transport but discovered this might be a little too hard, take too long, there wasn't a lot of information about and just maybe a bit too ambitious. So we looked for a tour guide. This tour seemed to be one of the most reasonably priced that we found online.

During the organisational period he was very fast to reply via email and also almost instant on text message. His english is almost perfect. Our train from Budapest was almost 2 hours late, and he was very accommodating and waited for us (communicating live via text with our new scheduled arrival time, something we had no idea of). He drove a recent model people carrier and was a safe and careful driver. He took us to some great destinations, but was happy to mold the trip to whatever we wanted but was always aware of how all the decisions we were making would effect other things (ie, we can stop for a long lunch now if you like, but we might miss the sunset at Rasnov Fortress etc) which really helps you make educated decisions about everything you're doing. He took us into each attraction and explained everything in detail. Had a very good knowledge. He even made about 10 phone calls trying to arrange accomodation for us that evening.

Over all we thought it was a great day, a great tour and Bogdan was a fabulous tour guide. Highly recommended.

Bogdan is a great guide! He picked us up in Sighisoara and took us out to Bran Castle and Rasnov Fortress. He's friendly and knowledgable, and we had a really great day. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking to explore the region!

I found Bogdan on Tripadvisor and communicated easily with him through sms's in English, while we were busy in Bucharest and in the Danube Delta. He traveled 5 hours to pick us up in Tulcea and turned right around to drive us back to Brasov with enough energy for a quick walk around the city before depositing us at the wonderful Casa Cranta. The next morning he was at our hotel at 9.15am to take us to the Bear Sanctuary, Bran Castle, with lunch in a fun place with a wonderful view, Poiana Brasov (we were too tired to do the fortress) and a walk around Brasov, finding supplies, music and excellent German pastries. The day after we went to Viscri, which even in cold driving rain, was just wonderful, and enjoyed Sighisoara - with more German pastries. He was flexible enough to resolve my search for a particular soap dish and throughout our travels with him he was fun, upbeat, and driving very competently. We met his lovely family and understood why he works so hard. Great find.
