    Our, guide, Andrea, met us early at the agreed upon meeting point next to the statue in the square. She first sat us down and gave us a remarkable history of Cluj dating back to the year 200 AD to understand the evolution of the culture and heritage of the city. We then proceeded to walk all over the most important places with in depth history and stories about all of them. Andrea was so knowledgeable and fun to be with we hated to part with her at the end of the tour. We highly recommend Andrea to anyone visiting Cluj Napoca.

    I booked as did another party of 11 people for entrance to the Banffy Palace, National Museum and Botanical Gardens on 30 Sept 2019. The party of 11 had not received the information to meet in the Square, so the lovely guide and I hung around the Square for over an hour waiting for them to arrive. Everyone in the group thought we had booked for the Banffy Place tour, it turns out the Banffy Palace and Museums are not open on Mondays, however our tickets stated Monday 30 Sept and the attractions we were to see. The group of 11 left the tour after an hour. I emailed Viator the same day and yet to receive a response. This was an expensive tour and the tour guide was very nice and knowledgable, however, it is not what I paid for.

    I can say that we really enjoyed this tour. It was quite smooth, interestingly connected and sufficient with details and information. All this is because of Roxana, who is very professional nice guide, who surrounded us with her attention and warm attitude. Thank you!
