Such an amazing tour! we visited several places, each with a meaningful historical background for the country, specially about Vlad Tepes legacy. Tour guide was very friendly and kept a nice conversation and profesionalism, even when Poenari castle was closed, he filled the time with other nice places around and the oportunity to try traditional food, I learnt a lot thanks to his knowledge of every place we saw.

It was a pretty awesome day with my very so knowledgeable and professional guide Alex. Alex was great explaining the history and culture of the visited places and the most memorable thing was spotting brown bears 11 times and enjoying a Romanian lunch after reaching the summit

Adrian was a great host and had lots of knowledge to share. Made sure I was comfortable and enjoying the experience the whole day. Would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see more of this beautiful country.
