Outstanding!! Excellent information and flawless English!! Wonderful customized tour of city and surrounding area!! Personable young woman who beautifully accommodated 2 old women with limited walking skills :) Guide plus car is the best way to see the whole city and her flexibility made us wish we could take her with us for the rest of our trips!

We enjoyed taking part in a tour organized by Alexandra for friends.

Although she says from the start she is not a specialist in history, Alexandra understands history very well. History is not only about arms deeds, illustrious characters, economic and urban development, but about the complex life of past generations.

After her tours, many say they have felt tourists in their own city, discovering fascinating stories and unobserved details in the routine of everyday life.

The journey to discover dramas, moments of solidarity or discord of people with different identities, successes and defeats that have occurred between the walls or in the mud of Timisoara is more than a pleasant experience.

Participants in the Alexandra tours are in fact going through a refresher course to become ambassadors of the city, in Timisoara and among the people they interact with outside the country.

A European cultural capital needs as many ambassadors and certainly has only one girl with a red umbrella so enthusiastic to prepare them!

Thank you, Alexandra!

Imagine yourself after a long day at the office. Tired, somewhat bored and definitely with no mood to go out and walk around the city. Luckily, we did not walk alone, Alexandra picked us up, first from the front of the Cathedral and a few minutes later from our bad mood.
We spent almost 2 hours, walking slowly through history and the city's central landmarks. Absolutely amazing how much information and the way she presented it.
Charismatic, well informed, funny. The girl with the red umbrella.
