Overview

Dear Traveller, My name is Claudiu Preda, I was born in Timisoara, and by the time the Revolution happened in “89 I was almost 15 years old. I graduated in History at Babes-Bolyai University, and one of my very very distant relatives was the Mayor of this city in 1929. I am an authorized Tour Guide for Romania and I provide Tour Guide services as an independent registered business. I offer sightseeing tours in Timisoara and tailored made excursions around the regions of Banat and Transylvania. My tours and excursions focus on History, Culture, Architecture, Romanian World Heritage sites, and the changes which have occurred in Romania and Banat since the fall of Communism. Regards, Claudiu Preda.
