      Tailor-made Tour _ Romania with Transylvania Tours to Return Once Again! Our experience with Transylvanian Tours was exceptionally well-prepared. Our mountaineering group has particular wishes. Gelu delivered what we wanted but added much more to our experience and helped with all the extras needed during our travel. I will certainly be going back to Romania!

      Awesome Awesome and wonderful trip in Romania with Gelu and our Driver. Our itinerary was well planned, food recommended by Gelu was superb. We also shared photography skills. Our first trip to Romania but not the last. We will definitely come back. We Highly recommend Gelu. He is a kind, considerate and patient man. He even helped us at the post office to send our stuff home. Really appreciate him.

      Romenia's Mountains and Cities I loved my recent Transylvania adventure with my friends and to have an advice from Gelu was a great decision. There are many beautiful places to visit in Romania, even for a trip of 12 days. We really need to choose the best tours and activities and we found the right person to support us - Gelu’s became a friend because he exceed our expectative with all support in touristic cities tours and hard mountain treks. The time spent in each place was perfect and also the ratio between price and quality. I recommend you all to visit Romania with Gelu’s assistance to enjoy the culture, mountains and forests, monuments, restaurants, hotels and for safety (he help us to decide the treks) and economic reasons. My feeling is that I’ll come back one day :-)

      Romenia Mountain adventure and Tourism Gelu designed a fantastic program between mountain trekking and cultural visits. We were able to experience a lifetime experience in 11 days. Gelu´s availability allowed us to change/adapt our program according to weather conditions or last time resolutions. I totally recommend Transylvanian Tours and Gelu for your next adventure holidays in Romenia!

      Amazing mountain trekking and historical visit to Romania Last year me and a group of friends had the idea to do some treks in the mountains of Romenia - Fagaras, Bucegi, Piatra Craiului. I contacted some possible guides and then we decided to do the trip with the support of Gelu. He was amazing. He helped us to have all the reservations done on mountain huts, the accommodation in the cities we visited and also the transportation to go around. Sim he trip was fantastic with a mix of hard mountain treks and also historical/cultural visits. The weather in the mountain and other issues (like a team member loosing its passport) make these trips challenging and Gelu always had a plan B or C but hat were align with the team objectives for the trip. He was part of the team for sure. I clearly recommend Gelu for any trip to Romenia he has an array of tools that will help anyone that wants to go and visit that wonderful country

      Amazing! Romania is diverse and unique at the same time. Much to discover, between cities, mountains, castles, ... and people (who are very hospitable). Gelu, our Guide (initially), after 12 days, became a Friend. Always in a good mood, very polite and tireless in responding the most diverse requests. Under his guidance, we got to know the different corners of his country in depth. I want to go back!!!

      Excellent service We had to change our route in the Fagaras mountains due to thunderstorms. Our guide was tireless in securing unscheduled transfers and accommodation.

      Experiência fantástica. Fizemos um misto de turismo e travessia de montanha. Foi fantástico e Gelu foi espantoso no seu esforço para que tudo corresse pelo melhor. Experiência e repetir com menos neve.

      Wonderful and unforgettable experience Transylvania was a fantastic experience. Geru did everything he could to ensure that our experience was memorable. He went above and above. One instance was when we wanted to go to a shopping mall and he took us there and after shopping he came back to show us the bus stop we needed to take even though this was not on our itinerary. A very down-to-earth person. Keep your excellent work. Thanks
