We had a great time on the tour with Traian as our guide. The van was clean and comfortable with Wi-Fi access. Traian had a lot of great information to provide about everything from the cities we were driving past to the fortresses that we visited. We would definitely go on another tour with Traian and this company in the future!

Our guide was very polite and joyful! He spoke very well english (and italian at the same time, as we had another pair of people with us). He offered to take us photos and made our whole experience unforgettable.

Florin was an amazing guide ! The view and the castles are a must ! I personally recommend this option for anyone who wants a good quality experience with history and legends!
