Excellent organization and very knowledgeable guide. Mattina is an Italian guy who is driving in this moment of covid. Very well-prepared and very intelligent person, he combines both professionalism with extreme sympathy and cordiality. I was hesitant to book through this site, now I recommend everyone to do so. Well done

A marvellous trip. Our guide, Alex, was very engaging and knowledgeable. A lot was crammed in to the 12 hours we were out and about. There is a fair bit of travelling involved between stops but it's well worth it. Seeing these places was something I'd longed to do and I'm so glad I did.

Mattia, our guide, is really prepared for everything and available. It made the trip enjoyable and the tour, overall, perfect! Too bad the small inconvenience with the bus (broken microphone and a little unpleasant driver). Fortunately Mattia managed to solve everything in the best way and make us forget everything else. The only flaw was the telephone operator who initially had separated us from our friends (different reservations but I had called specifically to ask to be together), but the day before I resolved with the contact person in Romania. Transylvania is a place that should definitely be visited! I highly recommend the tour !!!
