Our guide's name was Serban. He started the day off by being prompt and on time. He was extremely knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating. He was very friendly, had a good personality and was very nice. He had a great sense of humour. Although the trip was long, he kept us informed through out the day. He really knew the countries history and was able to relay the information by weaving the time and events in a historic way, like good story tellers do. The drive showed off Romania in a positive way, the countryside was really beautiful.

We are just back from Romania (two of us travelling) and the trip was made perfect thanks to TravelMaker and our lovely and patient guide Laura. The tour is well organised and well rounded. Laura showed professionalism and shared her knowledge with enthusiasm. She also proved to be an excellent driver as we were blessed with snow which added to the mysterious medieval atmosphere of Transylvania (thankfully the snow did not seem to phase Laura). She also took the time, at our request, to take us to Viscri which was not on the programme and this was much appreciated as we were already running late because of the weather. The drive back through the sinuous roads of the Carpathian mountains was slow but magical thanks to the snow covered trees, a forest of white filaments as the headlights shone on them. I would definitely recommend visiting Transylvania in winter. Nothing disappointed from Brasov to Bran but our favourites turned out to be Peles Castle and Sighisoara (and the street food experience outside of Bran Castle). The hotel in Sighisoara was basic but perfect as its style blended well with the overall feel of the place. There, we also enjoyed a concert of carol and gospel singers as mulled wine kept us warm. We found that the food was better in the medieval fortress than it was in Bucharest. My husband and I have visited many European countries including Central European ones but we were left with the firm impression that Romania should be one of the first countries to visit in Eastern Europe. It has so much to offer. Its treasures are scattered all over the place so unless one wants to rent a car, an outfit like TravelMaker is perfect to take a party of two or several around. I was so taken by this understated country that I am now reading avidly about its history in general and its Saxon heritage in particular. I now understand why Prince Charles - who is related to the Romanian royal family and owns a property in Viscri - is so taken by this unassuming and beautiful country which is well worth discovering, beyond the Dracula narrative. So thanks again to Laura and TravelMaker to have helped us add memorable days to our lives.

Hello, We really appreciate the time you took to leave such a beautiful and thoughtful review of our service! We’re happy you had a great experience with our colleague Laura on the Transylvania Break tour from Bucharest. The Carpathians and Transylvania look even more interesting covered with snow and around the Winter Holidays Season, and we are so happy you could see and enjoy the unique atmosphere. However, there are many other exciting things to see and do in Romania, so we hope to see you again sometimes for another great adventure. Thanks again!

Let me start off by saying I am not the type to leave feedback for employees, unless I receive unbelievably horrible service. I am happy to say this is not the case for this review. I could not imagine getting a better tour guide than Boogie.

I’ve never been on a tour and didn’t know what to expect. Boogie was kind, funny, energetic, inclusive, personable, and incredibly accommodating. He recommended top-notch places to eat, and helped out when I was having trouble with the heater in my hotel room. He even offered to take us to the city center of Bucharest and let us walk around at the end of the trip.

Boogie has set some pretty high standards/expectations for the next tour I do. If you do this trip, ask for Boogie. He will not disappoint!!

Our purchasing transaction for the tour on Tripadvisor was very easy and smooth. When we contacted the agency to get a confirmation on the program, the operator instantly replied back, giving all the required information.

Our tour guide Valentin picked us from our hotel as scheduled – he was very punctual, like the rest of the tour. Luckily, we were the only travelers in the tour that booked for the date, so it was such a VIP experience for us.

Once on board, Valentin informed us about the scope of the tour that was awaiting us. To be honest, I have never seen such a sophisticated and intellectual tour guide before! He was awesome indeed – he has quite a broad background of history, geography, theology, and politics, which we significantly benefited from. He is also a very careful driver.

Our two-day tour was very fun, coming in with lots of new information, laughter, jokes, and wonderful memories.

I would absolutely recommend the “2-Day Transylvania from Bucharest: Brasov, Bran, Sighisoara” tour to anybody willing to have a Transylvania experience!

tour was my Hallmark Fantasy come true!
We had an incredible, absolutely wonderful time with Valentin on this 2-day excursion to the heart of
Romania.
My 17-year-old son and I were so fortunate to have Valentin as our guide. He has such a depth of knowledge about Romanian history and culture and current state of affairs that our trip was enriched way beyond visiting beautiful sights. We were fortunate to have a second guide with us (I'm pretty sure it was Sarah but it may be Laura )
The van transporting us through the snowy winter wonderland was very comfortable and my son also loved the WiFi in the van.
They picked us up by the entrance to Old Town Bucharest and off we went to Peles Castle.
Please remember to pay to take pics with all devices in your group before you enter castle as you will want those pics.
I was in awe of everything- the gorgeous decor, ornate architecture, the library with secret passage, the chandeliers- oh my! Poor Valentin had his hands full with me as I had a hard time focusing on his excellent tour- I think what I wrote in my journal that day sums up my euphoria:
I am on my Hallmark Christmas Fantasy tour! I just plunged into the living, beating heart of all fictional Princes' Fantasy kingdoms and it was beyond my wildest, feverish dreams. It's the freaking Holy Grail. I felt Lacey (Chaubert) urging me to break all kinds of tour etiquette. She literally forced me to walk up and down that royal red staircase and take lots of unauthorized video. I was scolded- in several languages. I just kept sneaking away trying to find the secret passage behind the library door behind which I could hide and never leave. Then Candace (Cameron Bure) said Lisa, the Prince of Your Heart is waiting for you in the ballroom. I ran as fast as I could (in my protective blue surgical booties (which Lacey never had to do) I looked around (while taking surreptitious selfies) and lo and behold, there was my son. Aw- My heart be still.
So fun! After we strolled the grounds and then left for Brasov- with its glorious cobble-stoned main square and huge Christmas tree. We had lunch in adorable restaurant off square and even found a vegan restaurant for my son.
After, we drove to citadel city of Sighisoara and spent the night at a spectacular very European hotel complete with tapestries a lovely wooden antiques and even spa-style bath. Breakfast at hotel was abundant. On way to visit Dracula's home (or is it?)Bran Castle - Valentin pulled over so my son and I could play in the fresh powdery snow. Exhilarating! Valentin was so good with my son who would've been bored out of his mind if he had to hang out with just me. After touring Bran, we had time to pick up souvenirs in market under castle and then we headed back to Bucharest. I was so sad to see the adventure end and would go back in a heartbeat if I weren't banned from Peles (joking) We loved Travelmakers so much we took a daytrip to Bulgaria the very next day with the fabulous Boogie.

Dear Lisa, This is an outstanding feedback, thank you for sharing this amazing experience! I am thrilled to read the short charming part of your journal, you are very talented! Indeed, it is describing a tale from another era, and I personally think that the magical land of Transylvania belongs to it. Special thanks for all the good thoughts you have towards Valentin, our tour guide. His friendliness and good knowledge of the Romanian history help him make an authentic connection, very fast with his travelers. I am so happy to hear that his company brought so many positive vibes around you and your son! Please be assured that I will copy your message to him, I am sure he will be delighted and grateful to hear your kind words of appreciation. We loved to help you organize your stay in Romania, thank you for letting us taking care of it. We hope to welcome you again in our country and to show you more exciting destinations! With gratitude and best regards, Roxana Adam

There we just 4 of us on this tour which was nice, and Boogie was an excellent tour guide - he always arrived on time and was clear about what we were doing and very knowledgeable about everywhere we went. He is a really lovely guy and went out of his way to make sure everybody had a great time.

The landscape was gorgeous with the falling leaves, the perfect time to be there. In Sighisoara the air was so fresh and clear and the scenery amazing - it was like going back in time. I loved the medieval fortress Bran Castle, especially the view from the roof top and the old well. Peles Castle was beautifully ornate and decorated with many styles of woodwork & interesting objects.

Just a note for anyone who needs to know, I am gluten intolerant & a vegetarian, and the breakfast at the Sighisoara hotel was brilliant for me.

Would highly recommend this tour!

Laura Magdan was a very knowledgeable guide, the tour was an amazing experience, bit tiring long route with spectacular views but worthy, practically we rush to see everything, not enough time for lunch taken into account that Romania restaurants services are very very slow.
