Florin was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Sibiu. He gave us a locals view point and perspective which made the whole experience so much more interesting than blandly reading about things from a guide book. He brought the city to life for us! Thankyou.

Excellent Tour! Our guide, Alex was exceptionally knowledgeable and engaging and was able to tailor the information to the audience based on their knowledge of Transylvanian and European history. Well worth it and definitely recommended.

Alex was amazing! Knew so much about Romania and shared so much knowledge and history. It was only myself in this tour and he did a great job all around. Plenty of time in Bran Castle and Brasov!

We were the only ones, so we had a private driver all to ourselves.

Excellent guide made the history of the place come alive
