    Very nice tour to Romania ( Timisoara), the city is very pretty and the museum of the Revolution is a must see. The driver ( George) and the guide Alexander) were amazing and very knowledgeable. We had a great day and had the opportunity to drive through the Serbian countryside. Everything was organized perfectly.
