    Dan fue un estupendo guía

    As a local I loved to see that Brașov is present on GYG and I was excited to find out more about my hometown while presenting it to my partner. The tour does take you to good spots in town, but I felt that it could have contained even more unique hidden stories about the places we saw passing by. There were some moments of quietness even if we were the only people in the tour. However, we are happy that we took the tour and we are looking forward to even more great stories in the future!
