Our day trip across Transylvania was great! My friend and I really felt like we got a locals perspective on the region thanks to our guide Catalin, who was very knowledgeable about the region and had an answer to all our questions, no matter how off topic they were sometimes. My favorite part of the tour was definitely Sigishoara, just walking around the enclosure was lovely and the clock tower had great views! Additionally, Catalin went above and beyond after I left my water bottle in his car. He took time from his day off to drop it off at my hostel! His kindness was very much appreciated.
The best element of the trip was our guide Cristian. He gave us a broad historical introduction, both related to the places we visited, and to the history of Romania in general. Very, very exciting. Sigishora was a really nice city, with a cozy atmosphere. Brancastel was beautiful and had an exciting history - there was not much vampire / horror atmosphere over the place though, so if that is what you expect you may well be disappointed :) The drive was long, but incredibly beautiful, with mountains, forest, cows on the road and horse-drawn car All in all, we clearly recommend leaving.
Sebastian was our guide. He was engaging, informative, welcomed questions and ensured we were thoroughly immersed in the trip. Highly recommend the trip, Sebastian as our guide and when we return to Romania, we will take several tours with Sebastian of Carpathian Tours.
Very good guide, who was very well informed about the history of the places visited, but also about the social development of Romania and responded to my wishes and questions. I also really liked the places and landscapes.
Christian was fantastic and had so much information. He was flexible and accommodated our wishes brilliantly. Be prepared for a long time in the car but ask g as you have daylight there is so much to see on the journey.
