Adrian's friendly, welcoming personality and energy radiated from the moment he greeted my travel companion and me. He showed up on time. Adrian is very intelligent and knowledgeable in regards to Romanian history, the castles and places we had visited. He was informative, yet listened enough to know when we had enough of history. He was able to answer all of our questions without any hesitation. Throughout the long day, he made sure we were comfortable. In regards to the tour itself - highly recommend.
