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.

Cosmina was highly knowledgeable in all aspect of the history of Sighasoura and Transylvania. The evening tour is a fantastic choice especially in this heat. There was a lot of time to ask questions and visit all the sights at a nice pace. We highly recommend her tour!!!

A great city tour that goes hand in hand with great attention to detail. We have learned so much that is worth knowing about Schäßburg. You should definitely book this tour. Many Thanks.
