Alexandria has done a fantastic job in tracking down Romanian documents and information on my Hungarian grandparents and great-grandparents. It is not an easy task and I really appreciate her tenacity and enthusiasm. I highly recommend using her reasonably priced research services . I am looking forward to visiting Romania in 2022 and taking her "red umbrella tours"!

I booked Alexandra for a genealogy search for her to go to Perjamosch(Periam) to search for some of my family in some of the records and cemeteries within the town. I cannot make it to Romania right now since I live in the US and travel is not the easiest during a pandemic. She was very open, honest, and very professional to work with. She was easy to communicate with regarding her target date to go to the town and was very prompt in her report back to me. She took quite a few photos, found several records, and overall found more than I expected after the 70+ years since my family has lived in Perjamosch. When I am finally able to travel to Romania and the Banat region to visit my ancestral homeland, Timisoara Tour Guide and Alexandra will be the first I will contact for guided tours. Thank you!

Awesome experience. We are from Timisoara and even though we know a lot of thing about the city's history, Alexandra told us a lot of interesting stories. A lot of small secrets, about the revolution, about the buildings, about the hidden treasures, owners, stories, architecture and history. She is a well of knowledge and her willing to share it with anyone is delightful. Thank you for an awesome trip, and experience.

In a time when I've been isolated at home for more than I can take, and in a time when I've pretty much had it with this city, and thought it won't come back to life, like it's used to be...I decided to join Alexandra's tour. I give myself a pat on the back for doing so. On a rainy day, we actually had fun and I learned new things I had no idea about, although I've been living in Timisoara all my life, and she managed to make me see my home city with better eyes than I have lately. That little spark made the difference. I definitely recommend her tours. :)
