Our Day With Dan
mjkar2017
, Oct 2019
We have spent 5 days in Bucharest and have very much enjoyed this beautiful historic city but the highlight of our stay was our day with Dan. He was knowledgeable, polite, fun and very accommodating to our requests. He was willing to change course so we could see some villages and local life including a wonderful festival .It was a wonderful day and exactly the "get out of the city" kind of tour we love. Thank you so much. Mary and Karen

Nothing was too much trouble for Mircea, who picked us up from our hotel bang on time, and delivered us promptly back in the evening after a full, knowledge packed day in Transylvania. He was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and ensured that we got to see everything on our trip despite some delays due to overcrowding (not his fault at all) at Peles Castle by efficient time keeping. Can highly recommend this guide and tour - thank you again Mircea!

On a raining day, this tour is an excellent idea. We were welcomed in our hotel by our private guide, Angelca. She was marvelous. Excellent knowledge about her country, good driver and very nice person. Thanks again, Angelica for an excellent day.

AWESOME TOUR!!! This tour was definitely worth it! This private day tour was the PERFECT way travel from Bucharest to see Peles Castle, Bran Castle and the town of Brasov! The tour company owner, Mihai, contacted me prior to the tour date to let me know the details and who our tour guide would be. Mihai also offered to start the tour 30 minutes early to try and beat some of the traffic that we would encounter on that Saturday morning. Our tour guide, Dan, was awesome! Dan picked us up from our hotel on time and provided us with bottles of water for the ride. He spoke perfect English and was professional, friendly, and informative during our tour. We started off at Peles castle, toured and ate lunch in Brasov, then finished off the tour at Bran (aka Dracula's) Castle. We ate at a wonderful Romanian restaurant in Brasov that Dan recommended. The great thing about this private tour is that it gave us more flexibility with the schedule and what we wanted to see. We enjoyed this tour so much that we booked a day tour of Bucharest for the next day with Mihai!! I am so glad that I chose this specific tour...great tour and great people!!

Being the first time I had organised a tour in a foreign country from Australia I was a little nervous about how it would go. Shouldnt have worried as we were in really good hands! Mihai couldnt do the tour personally so he arranged for Florin to pick us up at our hotel in Bucharest at 8.00 a.m. We arrived in the lobby about ten minutes early to find him waiting for us. Florin spoke very good English, was a non-smoker, the car was clean and comfortable, he provided bottled water and off we went. Florin provided a great commentary throughout the journey. We learned so much about Romania. The scenery was beautiful and we were lucky to see a shepherd with his flock of sheep and maremma dog crossing the road. Being a public holiday in Bucharest the highway was very busy but Florin knew where to divert to avoid the traffic and we had a great side trip through a lovely mountain village. We visit the beautiful Peles Castle and then the Sinai Monastery and stopped for a coffee and delicious Romanian cakes at a nearby cafe before heading off to Bran Castle. At each stop Florin explained the history, the architecture and the significance of the buildings. We had a late lunch in Brasov where Florin encouraged us to try some Romanian foods which we thoroughly enjoyed. Brasov was also well worth the visit. It was a wonderful days touring and we didnt arrive back to our hotel until about 9.00 p.m. The beauty of a private tour meant that we could be flexible with the schedule and with what we wanted to see. Id have no hesitation in recommending this tour and this company. Our expectations were very much exceeded and the three of us were very satisfied customers!

Our original guide with Viator was unavailable so Adrian was our guide for the day. On the day the snow was really bad , we didnt think we would be taking the tour but at 8.00 am prompt Adrian arrived. Adrian is a mine of information, polite and courteous. We would definitely use Adrian again when we return to Bucharest.

An amazing trip from Bucharest to Pelisor Castle, Brasov, and Bran Castle. Our guide Mihai, whose English is excellent, was extremely knowledgeable and shared wonderful information with us. Nicholaus, our driver, was safe, very pleasant, and also knowledgeable and eager to share information with us. The larger Peles Castle was closed for the month of November, but we enjoyed the smaller Pelisor castle. This was a long day trip, due to traffic, and we arrived in Brasov after dark. We loved the trip, however, and would recommend it to others.

Mihai was reliable, his car was very clean, his driving was excellent and he had a very calm manner. He was knowledgable and able to answer all our questions about the area and the history behind everything we were seeing. He spoke excellent English and he was patient and we never felt rushed. He kindly had us rest while he went to get his car, he gave us time to shop, and then offered to carry our purchases. He selected a restaurant with wonderful Romanian food and we had a leisurely lunch. We spent about 12 hours together and had a wonderful day. Mihai would be my first choice if we need a guide to take us on a 1 or several days trip - if we ever return to Romania. You cannot go wrong and I would highly recommend Mihai to my friends and family.
