My friend and I, both senior citizens, booked this trip with modest hopes and expectations. We both are seasoned travelers yet we were totally amazed and in awe of the tour and the TLC provided by a Viator subcontractor named George Panica of Trip2Ro. We traversed over 900 miles in, over and around the Carpathian mountains, through the four major regions of Romania from Wallachia to Transylvania, Bukovina and Moldova, The Transfagarasan Highway reaches a peak of 6700 feet so we could see breathtaking vistas throughout. We visited the Hungarian enclave in Transylvania where we stopped at a restaurant for Hungarian goulash. The painted monasteries in Bukovina and Moldova are considered comparable to Michelangelo's Sistene Chapel paintings --but the monasteries are painted both inside and out with mysterious paint and unknown painters. It is miraculous that most of the exterior paintings have survived over 600 years. Most tourists are interested in Bran Castle of Dracula fame but we felt Peles Castle is far more compelling for the tech advances employed in heating and plumbing and the showcase of the best craftsmanship from around the world. We got a chance to see an illuminated icon workshop, a workshop where carpets and sweaters were made, and experience a model holy man's bedroom where the hay bed and stone pillow both felt like cold cement. As we went through a potato-growing area where sacks of potatoes line the street, ready to be sold, we stopped to see a potato-growing grandma raising her grandson. She invited us in for a cup of delicious coffee and a tour of the summer kitchen, barn, and residence. At each stop there was a surprise and delight, well planned and a great memory. One day we stopped at a pottery studio where the artisan sat at a wheel turning clay that is fired at 1400 degrees and results in black pottery. While in Brasov we stopped at a face/body cream store to purchase some of the special wrinkle-remover cream used by the rich and famous. At every juncture our guide George took us to restaurants that held local and/or historical interest--one such was Vlad Dracul's house in Sighisoara. Because one of us had limited mobility George provided door to door service, carried our luggage back and forth to each hotel, and stayed with us to provide translation services at meals and give us tips on best prices for given items. By the end of the trip we were sorry to say goodbye to our new friend and sad to depart magnificent Romania.

From the city to the mountain passes, all covered in snow, a great experience. Painted churches to Castles and legend of Dracula thrown in for good measure. Happy people with such a rich culture. Feel in love with this country very quickly. Amazing tour guide who was so willing to show and share his beautiful country and their treasures, many thanks to you Panica George Cosmin Trip2Ro. Appreciated the service. To many photos to choose from so will leave you to create your own.
