Very informative, engaging and fun!

Stefan was very well informed and he gave us a very informative insight into the history and culture of Romania..he never hurried us through the trip and also extended it for us quite a bit! He ended the tour by reserving us a place at Caru cu bere at a nice little spot..I have also booked the Transylvanian tour via him and I think it would be excellent as well!

A really good trip

A very interesting trip in both the city and especially surroundings where you do not want to go. Sympathetic and very knowledgeable guide who spoke a very easy to understand English.

This was so much fun, great explanations and a very friendly guide. Will we book again next time for other tours. Price/performance is totally justified!

Great around the city & surrounding area tour.

Driver & tour guide did an exceptional job. Even presented me a bottle of local wine
