Met outside my lodging promptly by Bogdan. So welcoming and knowledgeable about his home country. Gave me history as we drove to Sighisoara and Sibiu. Such beautiful towns with a rich and interesting history. Really enjoyed seeing the old medieval towns. Thank you, Bogdan for your friendly and informative tour!

We had a private tour for 6 people with Bogdan, where we were picked up in Cluj Napoca and he drove us to different towns and cities in Romania over the course of 4 days. From the out of this world Turda salt mine, and the beautiful and magical Sighisoara, Bogdan gave us an amazing tour of the best parts of Romania, telling us some interesting and funny stories along the way. We also had an authentic Romanian meal which was delicious. I felt at ease with Bogdan straight away, he was very down to earth and happy to give us advice and recommendations along the way. He also knew a lot of people along the way which made things a lot easier. Glad we decided to have a tour with Bogdan, it took a lot of the worry out of the trip as he knew where he was going and we may have struggled to navigate on our own. Thank you so much for a brilliant tour, would highly recommend Bogdan to anyone wanting to travel and see Romania. So many beautiful and interesting places to see!

So glad we found Bogdan for our tour! 6 friends in our group to see parts of Romania that would be so hard to get to without the car and made so interesting with Bogdan's input and knowledge. We had such a wonderful time and once we got to Bucharest, other local tour guides were impressed we'd managed to see as much. Fantastic meal in the accommodation one evening and great advice on where to go on the other evenings for meals etc. It really does make seeing the real country very easy and comfortable! I would recommend Bogdan to anyone visiting this area. Thank you for a brilliant trip!!

We met Bogdan the next morning after arriving from Cluj, and from there headed towards Turda for our first stop and then travelled from place to place working our way through Transylvania, staying in guest houses along the way.
Sibiu, Sighisoara, Alba Lulia, Brasov, to name a few of the places we visited, before dropping us off in Bucharest. His knowledge of places really helped our understanding of how these places were/what happened/how the fortified churches and castles had been built and used to protect. To say that the lands surrounding these buildings had no trees is pretty hard to believe when you see the hills covered in trees now. Beautiful scenery, beautiful buildings, churches forts. Really just magnificent.
Bogdan has a good sense of humour, was easy to get on with, and was a great help throughout. It really made our trip having him there, we wouldn't have managed to see half of Transylvania otherwise, so thankyou.

Bogdan took us from Cluj to Bucharest with overnight stops in Sibiel, Sighisora and Brasov. Trip also included visits to Turda Salt Mine, Bran and Peles Castles amongst others. He is a very knowledgeable guide and seemed to be well connected with people at all the stops who seemed to go the extra mile for us because of this.

We were staying in Brasov for 3 days and had booked a tour to the Bear Sanctuary, Bran Castle and Rasnov Fortress. Our guide was Mioara Ghenoiu and we were exceptionally lucky (October 2nd - quiet time of year) as we had her all to ourselves. Mioara looked after us so well all day despite my sneezing and spluttering (Romanian cold). She was so fascinated by the Bear Sanctuary that, despite living in the area and umpteen visits she must have made, she came round with our group and the guide (whom she thought was the best guide there) and gave us even more information about this extraordinary place afterwards. At Bran Castle Miaora explained the history so clearly that the castle came to life. We are not particular Dracula fans but with such a brilliant and knowledgable guide we were able to learn so much more. Similarly with Rasnov Fortress which really inspired us. We felt so lucky to spend time with such an intelligent, empathetic, interesting and enthusiastic guide. We learned so much about the area, the history, politics and Romanian people. We would definitely go again!

We really enjoyed our tour with Alex. He was very patient with us. He answered all our questions. He brought us to great restaurants. He is a good driver. He really made sure we were having a good time touring Transylvania. My favorite was Shigisoara!!! I wish we had a longer vacation time so we could extend our stay in the pretty places. Truly memorable ....

We met the guide at the main square but had the option to be collected at our hotel. First to the bear sanctuary which was the highlight. The guide rushed on ahead to get the tickets.

Next was Bran castle, where we were shown around and given the history. Several good photo spots were pointed out. One of the must do places in Romania. Then lunch at a restaurant in the town.

Finally Rasnov fortress, which was interesting and had great views on the countryside.

All and all a great day out.
