Comprehensive introduction to Transylvania

Diana and Christian were a splendid duo - guide and driver. They were both very personable and spoke excellent English. They knew so much about the area and we had a great 2 days. It was early December and so cold, but that added to our experience. Snagov Monastery, Peles and Bran Castles, Rasnov fortress and Brasnov are all worth seeing. So much better to have personal guides rather than being on a group tour. We could not have seen as much if we had done it on our own using public transport.

Exceptional tour - would recommend to anyone

The guide and car driver were very friendly and informative. They would do anything for us - stopped along the way to take photos when requested and were happy to do anything we requested. Were always waiting for us on time and assisted us with all requests. Extremely friendly and helpful. The tour is a very good short insight into Romania- would one day like to return for a longer tour.

Nothing less then amazing !!!

This tour was not only filled with wonderful sites and history but great people. Diana and Christian go above and beyond to make your trip yours and not a cookie cutter trip. They ask about your interests and make the trip more like a vacation with friends then a hired guide. I look forward to returning to Romania and have more time to spend exploring the county with Diana and Christian!!!!
