          Thoroughly enjoyable day trip to Transylvania
          Our driver and guide, Daniel, is an absolutely lovely person and the epitome of professionalism through and through. He certainly made our day trip to Bran, Brasov and Peles Castle a thoroughly enjoyable experience. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about all and everything related to Romanian history and most every question you might have along the way, plus he knows the inns and outs of alternative roads and ways to bypass parts of the inevitable heavy traffic. Definitely recommend booking a trip with him and his tour manager company. As for the places we visited, Peles Castle is probably the highlight, with it's extravagance that surpassed all expectations. The town of Bran and the historical military castle was also quite interesting, while having a traditional Romanian lunch in Brasov, and a stroll through the streets of its old town was certainly something to remember.

          Highlight of our trip so far.
          This tour and the company was recommended to us by the hotel we were staying at. And ot did not disappoint. The car was good, but Daniel, our guide, was incredible. Easy going, extremely knowledgeable and friendly. No matter what we asked him, he knew the answer. The tour itself was very good, interesting, and informative. I'm so glad we took this tour and would not like to have missed it. I highly recommend it .

          Great guide and I am certain great tour
          I had the pleasure of interacting with Daniel a lot in his previous role, and know that his extensive knowledge, and friendly helpful attitude could only be a huge asset to someone seeking more knowledge and tours in Bucharest and Romania. I would recommend him to any international (or local!) traveller.

          We had planned to hire a car or travel by train but decided to treat ourselves to a personal guide and we're so pleased we did. Daniel is a great guide (as well as being an excellent driver) - he is so knowledgeable about all things Romanian (and we quizzed him a lot!) and he guided us through some amazing sights and locations including the beautiful Sighosoara, Sibiu and Cluj as well as a monastery and an incredible salt mine. Absolutely fabulous experience hugely enhanced by our easy going guide, Daniel.

          Excellent Tour by Daniel
          What an educational day! Daniel was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide as he drove us to the Bear Sanctuary, Dracula's Castle, and Brasov. My friend and I were a bit surprised at the cold, snowy weather as we arrived at the Bear Sanctuary for our tour. It was a little chilly, but the experience was one of my favorites in Romania - watching the bears and other wildlife here and learning about their stories. Daniel was very knowledgeable about the local areas and easily answered our questions about Romania as well. We also had a wonderful time exploring Dracula's castle and Brasov with Daniel as an informative guide. He took us to a quaint corner restaurant as well with excellent food. On our way back to Bucharest, we were also able to make an impromptu stop at the filming location of Wednesday's castle as well. We had a very memorable and enjoyable day with Daniel as a safe driver and informative guide.

          Last minute birthday treat
          My husband booked this very last minute for my birthday as our original trip had fallen through the night before and we had been let down. I am so glad he did because from picking us up to dropping us off, Alin and Oana were amazing!! They were so friendly and polite, and they made the whole day a fantastic experience. We really could not have asked for anything more. The knowledge they shared with us throughout the whole day was second to none. They really did have us at ease from the first instance. Thank you ever so much for making it a trip to remember. The best day or our holiday by far.

          We spent 2 days in Daniels company, Daniel is an excellent guide with impressive knowledge. He is fun to be around and very helpful. We had an amazing time and only wished we had been there longer. would definitely say he went above and beyond with some of the things we asked for. would definitely visit again and choose Daniel to be our guide.

          Great Full Day of Sight Seeing and Historical Discoveries!!!
          I had a day to spend on my own and found this tour online and read the reviews and took a leap of faith not having done a tour like this before. I can only reiterate what everyone else has said, Bucharest is a place filled with history and is absolutely stunning. But... Daniel really made the difference his passion and adoration for his country is outstanding as is his knowledge about both the poilitcal and historical past is fascintating. Daniel took me on the Dracula Castle and Peles tour and while both sites were breathtaking and draw droppingly beautiful, Daniel chose a great route for us to see the great mountain views and villages on the way. Truly a great custodian of Romania and a fantastic guide. I highly reccomend Daniel for any tour.
