  • Very long day, for was interesting, Sibiu was very good

  • Absolutely incredible! I can't give an adequate review because of the character limit. The tour guide was way beyond anything I expected. He actually took us to other spectacular places that were not on the agenda. It was a real look at Romania that will always remain in my memory. Well done!
