5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

I have been traveling extensively in Europe for two and half years now. I have taken several tours and this was by far the best tour I have been on. This was all due to our tour guide. Nedea was informative, patient, humorous, accommodating and highly intelligent in addition to being extremely charming! My colleagues/friends and I had a wonderful time and Nedea made our weekend in Bucharest a very memorable experience. Multumesc, Nedea.

Fantastic tour! It starts with a long drive to Transylvania from Bucharest. Our guide, Ion, was very friendly and personal. It was like getting a personal tour from one of your friends. We saw Trargoviste, climber 1400 steps up to Dracula's castle and then to a monastery. It was wonderful!
