We asked Cristina for a custom 4 day 3 night tour of Transylvania with specific criteria we like to travel by. Cristina was just great to work with in creating the complete custom tour. The tour was busy but crammed with such very interesting and diverse hotels to stay at, places to visit and people and places to see! We got what we asked for plus. It turned out to be a number of firsts for Cristina but it was a great experience for both of us. Cristina was always helpful,informative and professional
