We had an private 3-day tour in Transylvania and were pleased with everything: the advice during the planning stage, the impeccable organization and timing, the cozy hotels, the comfortable car and the reliable driver and our greatest Romanian discovery - our guide Gelu. We saw a beautiful countryside, learned about its past and modern history, discussed current affairs and had a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Gelu and his team turned it into our most memorable trip ever. Skirma, 05/2020
Gelu is a complete professional. Punctual, funny and has amazing knowledge about his country and its history. We left Romania after our time with Gelu having a deep sense of satisfaction. Highly recommended. Janice & Jim, 5/5/2020
His knowledge of Romanian history was second to none due to his experience and interest in history and journalism of Romania and overseas. I wouldn’t know as much or have had such an enjoyable time in both Bucharest and Braşov if it was not for meeting him. Thank you Gelu, I’ll not forget you or the experience you provided soon.
Dear Gelu, We have had such a perfect tour of Transylvania with you! Your knowledge of history, religion and culture have brought your country alive. We now can see the beauty of Romania through new eyes. We will always remember our 3 days exploring with you! Thank you! Peggy and Jerry 11/10/2018
