This was a really fun 2-day-tour with Ovi. He was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. I would say Peles Castle is a must ..we were blown away. Also Bran in contrast was really cool too. We also visited the towns of Brasov, where Ovi recommended a restaurant. We visited the restaurant and sat in the sun and enjoyed a delicious lunch. We also visited Sighisora and the clock tower. Also last but not least, Sibiu where the houses appear to have eyes. A truly lovely tour and we would highly recommend. Lewis and Rachael.

We had a wonderful guide—Boogie—who showed us places of interest and even modified some days better to suit our needs. We loved the tour and believe that we saw and learned a great deal about Romania in those 3 days. The hotels were great and the places chosen for lunches delightful. We could not have asked for more or gotten anything better. We highly recommend this tour and this tour company.

We spent 2 days on a trip around Transylvania, a beautiful region, great culture, rich history, thanks to the courtesy and professional approach of the guide, Mr. Andrei, we had a very pleasant time, moving in comfortable conditions and learning about the historical and now Romanian history - we recommend it very heartily!
