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.

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!

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!
