Alina is an outstanding tour guide. She is not Jewish but has taken it upon herself to learn about Romanian Jewry, the Holocaust, customs, traditions and history of the Jews. She is intelligent, well-educated, speaks a perfect English, bubbly, funny and charming...everything a tour guide should be! She responds immediately to questions or concerns. I highly recommend Alina, especially for this tour.
