I'm not personally a fan when reading reviews by accounts with <5 reviews as it gives the apprehension that the account is fake, and since I tend to give many reviews from my various trips I guess other readers will hopefully see...

I travelled a few days to Brasov alone in November and did two day trips with Bogdan. I wasn't sure how else to get around and was really happy to come across him while looking for tours. It was such a great way to see Transylvanian, which is beautiful by the way, and couldn't ask for a better tour guide!... More

He arrived at our hotel in Bucharest five minutes early to pick us up in his van for the start of our four-day tour. The tour took us to Sibiel (Village), Sighisoara, and Brasov. Some of... More

On Sept. 17, 2016 I made this half day tour with Traian Bichea as a guide. I was really able to maximize my time, since we left from his office at 2 pm (with 2 other Swedish girls) and visited Bran Castle, Rasnov Fortress and also went to Paiana Brasov, very famous ski resort. Traian is an excellent guide, highly... More
