  • Amazing. Great Service. Amazing tour guide. Excellent.

  • This tour is not to be missed. Just be sure you have guide Alex Stan. We were a demanding group--six adults, three in their 30's and three in their 60's, one of whom has lived off and on in Romania for many years. We other five knew very little about Romania and Transylvania. We came away from the tour wishing we could plan another trip with Alex and perhaps we will. First, Alex made sure to discuss everything with us so we could decide as a group where to spend our time. For example, he drove us through back roads rather than the main highway to one of the sites this allowed us to see current Transylvania as well as the historic small towns as they were--this was of special interest to us and made the trip much more than driving down highways to well-known tourist sites. He suggested certain less well-known places to see, which made the trip more than a tourist visit. He brought not only significant historical and current knowledge of the sites but also personal and family experiences which enriched our understanding of this area of Romania. We ate exceptionally well, enjoying the local food and wine. The van was comfortable even with the seven of us. We had some rain but with Alex's help we planned around it and saw everything we wanted to see. Alex was especially helpful in getting us in to the really touristy sites ahead of the crowds so we did not have to waste time standing in lines. He provided information of specific interest to us as an add-on to the more general tour information provided at the various sites. We were able to make good use of our time so we saw the well-known places but were also able to spend time in some sites that were less well known but, to us, more interesting. And it was not exhausting--we had time to split up when we wanted to do different things and time just to sit and have a drink and enjoy our surroundings. There is no question we would all do this tour again and absolutely recommend it to anyone wanting an authentic visit to Transylvania.

  • Transylvania is a must visit area in Romania. This tour covers most of the towns especially Sighisoara. I took the tour because of Sighisoara and had no regrets even after many many hours of driving. It is beautiful. We were a little worried that we will have to spend 4 days in the car with a stranger but our guild Alex Stan was wonderful from the time we met him in the lobby and when he dropped us off at the airport. He was very friendly, chatty, accommodating, knowledgeable and most importantly he was very concern of our safety and comfort. Request for him. We had a spacious mini van for 3 adults with 3 suitcases and carry ons. Be sure to check which hotels for the first 2 nights not very good experience but the 3rd night we stayed at Double Tree Hilton which was a very good property with great food.

  • excellent and changed my perception of Romania to a psotive one. lovely people and helpful. Great guide in Diana who is so accommodating and tryly informative. of course we shall not forget Marius who made sure we arrived to our destinations safely
