Mihai is an excellent tour guide, very flexible and responsive to all our needs. He is well organized and has great insight into the areas and sites we visited. Mihai was very prompt and courteous and helped make our Romanian tour a very memorable holiday. His recommendations on places to visit and stay were memorable and inline with our expectations. We did some walking as part of our tour and the walks he helped us find were a bunch of fun and very pretty. A couple of the adhoc experiences we came across like the "singing tile maker, George" really gave us an insight into the everday life of rural Romanians. We would definitely recommend Mihai to others looking for a great experience.

Thank you David for the nice words and I have to admit that I have enjoyed all the hiking trips during our tour. I always like new challenges and it sounds that all of your group enjoyed the whole experience while in Romania. Wish you all the best and happy travels!

It is hard to overstate what a great tour guide Mihai is. We went on a 7-Day tour of the countryside and visited many of the famous sites. Driver safety was followed at all times and we were never at risk. the best time we had was in small villages where we got to meet the local folks, mihai made fast friends with all of them and enabled us to feel comfortable with them. The food was universally excellent, and really unique. Mihai was always polite, prompt and professional, and I feel like he is a good friend now. Do not hesitate to make a reservation with him for any of his offerings!

Scott, Kim, I enjoyed all the experiences we have had in the villages as much as you did. Even I go there more often, it is the tourists like you and the locals in these villages that always make me happy to come back. I do hope some part of your family shall come to visit their "roots" like you did and I am sure they shall enjoy it as much as you did. Wish you all the best and happy travels!

We had an amazing day with Dan who was extremely knowledgeable and so nice! While the whole day was lovely one of our favorite parts was him showing us local Transylvanian street food by Bram’s castle.

Our guide, Florin, did an excellent job of showing us both the Castles and Brasov on the Saturday before Orthodox Easter. There were a large number of people who were out and touring and we were so glad to have Florin as our very personable, private guide and driver. We would never have had such a great experience with any other tour. So much to see and quite a long drive from Bucharest but absolutely worth every minute! Loved Peles Castle! Bran Castle had a number of extremely narrow, steep stairways so bear that in mind (they could use handrails). We had just arrived from the U. S. the day prior so chose to skip the monastery but really enjoyed Brasov as well. Had lunch there in the square with our guide and got to taste and share three popular dishes and a fabulous dessert. Many thanks to Florin to a great day!

Mihai was my tour guide for 2+ days from Bucharest into Transylvania at the end of March. He made me feel at ease and comfortable traveling alone for a couple of days. Mihai was very helpful beginning the day I contacted him to try to arrange an itinerary and continued to make recommendations and adjust the itinerary due to unexpected weather (snow) and my flight delays. He was polite, prompt and loved sharing information and knowledge about his country. His discussions on the history, culture and his experiences made for an interesting and rich experience in learning about Romania. I would definitely travel again with Mihai and wholeheartedly recommend his tours to other travelers.

Thank you Stacy for the review. Indeed it was a pretty challenging task to still have the tour on the such a snowy unexpected weather for late March. But I am glad you accepted to still go and discover part of Transylvania. Wish you all the best and happy travels!

We (myself, my husband and 3 kids (ages 9-15) had a wonderful time on our trip! Ionut was a wonderful guide and we were very comfortable with his driving and communication. He laid out our day for us and we had an amazing visit to Peles castle first. We had to go on a Saturday and it was busy but Ionut got us into the castle and through it smoothly--he gave us interesting facts about the rooms as we passed through and he got us around the larger groups to take great pictures! This place is gorgeous and not to be missed! Then we went to Brasov where we explored the town and then he introduced our kids to chimney cakes! They were so delighted this treat and I appreciated him making it fun for them. We finished off with a trip to Bran castle which we reached late in the afternoon after many of the tourists had left. This place is unique and beautiful and we loved meandering through the palace and reading all about the real history of the castle and Romania. We had great luck with traffic and didn't have any real slowdowns! It is a little bit of a drive from Bucharest but well worth it! Thanks for a wonderful trip Ionut!

Even you hoped for me to be your tour guide for the tour, I am glad you accepted to go in the tour with my good friend Ionut, who is a great tour guide as well. And I am glad your husband mentioned his interest in visiting the Black Church in Brasov which Ionut was able to fit in the schedule for you. Wish you and your family all the best and happy travels! And if you come back to Romania, I shall do my best to be your tour guide for that visit;)

Mihai was our tour guide for this day trip and he was excellent. He contacted me before the trip to give some suggestions. He picked us up early in the morning and got us out to peles castles early. He was well informed and the tour was worth the trip let alone the next castle we went to. Brans castles was nice but the food they sold outside the castle you have to try. The return trip from the castles we paid more attention the mountains and it is an impressive trip through them( Carpathian Mountains). I recommend this tour and ask for Mihai

Thank you Alvaro for the review and I am glad to know you both enjoyed the private tour. I just did my best to suggest you how we can avoid some traffic jams which are popular in the area for a Sunday evening.
