  • Absolutely fantastic experience! Diana is knowledge, friendly and a lot of fun. Traveling with her was like traveling with an old friend or with a new best friend. She shared history, little known places and great local food and beer experiences and tailored the day to my needs on the fly. Her English is flawless. I would definitely like to do a longer Romanian trip with her in the future and would give this trip a 10 if there were more stars!!

  • Our guide was wonderful! Plenty of knowledge about Romania. Great day!

  • The guide was very good!
    But the coach chair was very tide. It was worst, when the font sheet was reclined. My leg were cried!
