The guide was excellent.

There were initial problems with communication leading to a mix up re: the meeting time and place - but these were sorted out with a phone call and the tour proceeded very well. The guide was very knowledgeable, spoke excellent English and wove an interesting and entertaining yarn.

Florin was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Sibiu. He gave us a locals view point and perspective which made the whole experience so much more interesting than blandly reading about things from a guide book. He brought the city to life for us! Thankyou.

Excellent Tour! Our guide, Alex was exceptionally knowledgeable and engaging and was able to tailor the information to the audience based on their knowledge of Transylvanian and European history. Well worth it and definitely recommended.

Chris was great - came out in the cold and rain, very informative. Great English and sense of humour - I recommend to everybody

Chris informed us very well about the history of the city and answered our questions. The tour is really recommended.
