“Best tour I have ever had! Well worth it!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

My friend and I booked a day tour with Alex on November 10th and it was the best decision of our trip to Romania! Alex was great! We weren't just "more tourists" to him. He was very personable and a great driver on the winding Romanian roads. We traveled to 4 different sites and I'm glad we were with Alex because at some of the sites the hours had changed for the winter time and he was still able to contact someone so that we could visit the site. During the long stretches of driving he told us anything we asked about Romania, he didn't hesitate to tell alittle bit about himself either. I can't recommend him enough. I hope that I can return to Romania to visit other sites and I will certainly reserve a tour with Alex again. Thank you so much!

“Great tour guide”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

I booked a 3-castle tour with Bogdan last September. I'm really glad that I took a tour with him! For one, we had good conversations on Romanian culture, everyday life, politics, and even the changing state of the country during the long drives to the castles. He also told the legends of the various castles, and stories about Romania's previous rulers.

During the tours itself, he would often share little anecdotes and facts that the castle guide didn't mention. He was also good at turning dull moments around. I would definitely recommend booking him for your next trip to Romania.

“Highlight of our holiday”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

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!
