Nicoleta was a great guide. She arrived on time at the meeting point and got our small group comfortably seated with a bottle of water and a souvenir tourist map of Romania. She paced her way through several thousands of years of complex history while safely navigating the streets. She efficiently and productively guided us through Alba Iulia and Corvin Castle. In each case, she was very attentive to our well-being. Nicoleta also adapted to our group's preferences. For example, instead of lunching in Alba Iulia because we weren't yet hungry, we had lunch at a restaurant outside Corvin Castle. Throughout, she engaged each of us in conversation in a way that made our group more interactive with her and among us in the group, adding enjoyment to spending the day with Nicoleta and the other guests that we had only just met.

The tour was well planned, we were picked up by our guide and he drove us to the Corvin's castle. This was our second tour with the company, so we already had familiarity with the guide. He was happy to answer our questions about the place and its history. When we arrived at the Crovin's castle, he explained us history of the castle. The castle is magnificent and larger compared to the famous Bran castle. Luckily we arrived at a time of lesser crowds and got time to explore it on our own. He gave us some time to buy sweets from local markets, and then we drove to Alba lulia. He told us the importance of the city, its rich history and showed us important places. We then had some free time but due to the weather not being supportive, we decided to leave early. We drove back to Sibiu and it was a pleasant drive back.

We had a great time! Florian was super knowledgeable and pointed out things we would not have seen on our own and shared facts and stories throughout the tour. Corvin Castle didn’t disappoint either! We had lunch in Alba Lulia at a cafe which we all enjoyed before touring the fortress. Great day all around!

Expert guide, kind and helpful, we left at 10am from Sibiu and returned at 6.30pm, in total about 2.45 minutes by car, the rest of the time we spent between the castle of Corvin and Alba Iulia, both beautiful places. Absolutely recommended

Very informative informal tour. Really enjoyed it and would recommend to everyone.
