Cristi was an exceptionally fantastic tour guide. He is absolutely brilliant and is fantastic at sharing his knowledge and thoughts with you. I truly believe he does these tours because he truly enjoys sharing his love and knowledge of Romania with people from around the world. His English is exceptional, and he helped translate everything for us since we cannot speak Romanian. I recommend Cristi highly; he will make your trip the best that it can be. We consider ourselves so lucky to have met him!
