What people are saying about Mureș County

The tour was very entertaining and informative. Cosmina was a very nice and competent guide. My wife and I were the only two participants. Therefore very good. However, the meeting point was not where it should have been according to the voucher. This should be changed urgently! Otherwise the tour was very nice and recommendable.

Excellent experience. Our evening walk with our guide through Sighisoara was fantastic. It was only our family and our guide did very well making this child-friendly and enjoyable for all. We received a very informative history of the town and the timing meant we had practically the whole citadel to ourselves.
