Claudiu was our driver-guide for five days through Romania. He was informative, a careful driver and an excellent companion. He was excited and proud to be showing us his country. We visited the painted monasteries of Bucovina: Voronet, Moldavita and Sucevita, drove through the gorges, visited Sighisoara, Sibiu and the fortified church in Biertan and ended with Bran Castle and Brasov. Rain made his planned visit of Peles not doable. I highly recommend him.
