A Recent Review of this tour

I highly recommend Silvana as your guide. I was a single traveller and the 7hrs flew by. Lots to talk about & Silvana took an interest in what I was interested in seeing (and not seeing) and the tour was adapted as we went. I really enjoyed her open narrative on Romanian culture, politics and history. I feel like I got a real insight to this complex country and not a tour book summary. The food options give you local food experience and don't disappoint. Tip: don't eat breakfast before you go!
