It was good! We've ran out of time and have missed the visit the inside of the Black Church and had no time for stopping at the Monastery on the way back because we have to wait so long for the tour at the palace - something Dan couldn't have helped I presume. It would have been nice if there was a schedule for the English tour so that people could plan ahead instead of waiting 30 minutes outside and again 20 minutes or longer once inside. Our trip was prolonged due to the collapsed bridge, but after waiting for an hour, we took a de-tour route and got back to Bucharest very late - tired but safely. Romania is very beautiful once outside Bucharest and we were glad that we took the time to visit the country side. I hope the feed back is helpful!
The tour was absolutely wonderful. Nicu is awesome and my only suggestion is keep doing what you're doing now. We will definetely be back for a different tour and we also promote you guys here so much you should see more inquires towards the end of summer. We also told Nicu when you come on your planned USA visit next year, let me know if I can help with the hotels in the Washington/Philly area and hopefully we can meet then for dinner somewhere. Keep in touch
I enjoyed the tour into Transylvania very much and was so glad we decided to extend our time in Romania to include more than the 1 ? days in Bucharest. We were able to see all the highlights that were planned. As two women in their 60?s traveling alone, we felt very comfortable and well ?looked after?. I liked staying on Council Square in Brasov where we had easy access to restaurants, an internet caf?, and historic sights. I think we made the most of the time we had available. The mountains, castles, and Saxon fortresses of Transylvania were definitely trip highlights.
Dan, our tour guide, could not have been better. He is incredibly smart, articulate, and sure knows his stuff. Any question we asked, he had an answer for. He was very understanding with my rather weird dietary restrictions and recommended excellent places to eat based on this. We could not have been happier with Dan and the tour. We learned SO much from him about the history of Romania and the people. He was excellent and I would highly recommend him for any further tours. Thanks again.
We just returned from at fantastic tour on the Danube Delta and in Transylvania. Everything has been perfect. Our guides have done a fantastic job, serving us around the clock and loading us with information.
I had a wonderful time in Romania and really cannot thank you enough for putting me together with Nicu. He was an absolutely TERRIFIC guide, and we had a lot of interesting conversations, and I learned so much about the history of the Transylvanian region. Nicu really brought everything into proper perspective for me. He is not only incredibly knowledgeable, he is also very personable and his English is far better than I was expecting. I also appreciated his sense of humor! Honestly, I cannot say enough about my tour. It was a great itinerary, and the hotels were all good choices. Bella Muzica in Brasov was especially nice. I hope Nicu enjoyed himself as well. I feel like I have a good friend in Romania now, and if I return one day, I will certainly look Nicu up. Again, thank you, Mike for setting it all up. I am being completely honest when I say that the tour far surpassed my expectations, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone traveling to Romania. Consider me a very satisfied customer!!!
Thanks to your wise and efficient planning and the excellent efforts of our guide, Dan, it could scarcely have been better. We saw much more than could be expected in such a short time, and that was due to Dan's long hours of driving, and encouraging us to go and see what we thought we were too tired to do, but were SO glad we did. He was considerate, thoughtful and kind and took care of so many details. I would like to return to Romania one day to spend more time and see more of the country, and I certainly expect to contact you for assistance. I do not want to drive those roads myself, although Dan showed that it is possible to do so and survive. I very much appreciate your part in making Romania
We had a really good time despite the lack of enough snow for skiing. I must say that Romania had plenty to see and do in the absence of skiing. Our guides Nicu and David were excellent and very gracious hosts as well. We came away feeling like good friends with them and a true appreciation for Transylvania, Romania, and the people. Bran Castle was excellent, Brasov was a very nice city to be based near, and Sighisoara was a great destination with lots of great countryside to see along the way. We also enjoyed our time at Peles Castle and Sinaia. There are so many more things I could have easily (in hindsight) wanted to do such as the citadel of Rasnov, Tepes? real castle (forget the name but it was on the other side of the mountains from Bran), the Corvinesti castle, and Snagov Lake. All in all, it was a very nice trip in an area I knew very little about. I am definitely glad we went and saw such a wonderful part of Europe before it gets too overrun with tourists as Romania joins the EU and continues to make strides in its marketing. Thank you very much for helping to set up the entire plan on relatively short notice. I do believe that Nicu helped make our trip a truly wonderful experience with his personal views on Romania, its history, and enjoyment of showing us around
I had a great time in Romania, the guide that looked after me in Transilvania, Nicu, was fantastic. He was highly professional, nothing was too much trouble and very proud of his country. The guide I had for the city tour, I've forgotten his name at the moment, was also very good. I was extremely well looked after, thanks for the efforts of those involved.
I'm back in Canada now and would like to say that my trip to Romania went very well with mostly fine weather. The guides were good and the trip to the Danube Delta was especially interesting. Romania is a great country, despite its many problems. With best regards and thanks, Valerie
