Chris, is a very knowledgeable guide, pleasant, punctual and flexible. My brother and I had a wonderful day in her company and came away knowing so much more about Bucharest, its history and architecture. I recommend her. Her English is fluent and excellent.

Cristina provided us with tremendous insights about this city and the country that can only be told by someone who has lived through the time of communism as an adult and the changes that have occurred since its fall. She is very knowledgeable and was able to tailor our tour to suit our interests and the added challenge of my spouse's use of crutches due to a recent injury. We highly recommend Cristina if you want to truly know the Bucharest of today and it's history.

Christina was a delight. She took us all around Bucharest and showed us the areas that tourists would rarely see. She is so knowledgeable on the history that I hope I can retain most of it. Wonderful tour guide.

Cristina showed us all the places related to past and current Jewish presence in Bucharest and talked openly about the problems Romania is currently facing. It is especially impressive that she took time to study and research the subject although Jewish history was not open to public or studied in schools until 2004!

We asked Cristina for a custom 4 day 3 night tour of Transylvania with specific criteria we like to travel by. Cristina was just great to work with in creating the complete custom tour. The tour was busy but crammed with such very interesting and diverse hotels to stay at, places to visit and people and places to see! We got what we asked for plus. It turned out to be a number of firsts for Cristina but it was a great experience for both of us. Cristina was always helpful,informative and professional

Cristina created a tour around our included pre-river cruise tour of Bucharest. As a result,we have a very good understanding of Bucharest and all of its facets. It is obvious she has a commanding knowledge of the subject matter. We also know just how much the fellow passengers missed out on.

Cris is amazingly knowledgeable and flexible, much more than a standard local history guide. We were researching family history in Bucharest, and Cris did a lot of research prior to our arrival, then created a personalised tour that took in both her family-related findings and additionally the history of Bucharest. Cris put a lot of extra hours in for us, both beforehand and on the day, and did it all willingly and without rushing us at all. Without her we would not have found out anywhere near as much.

We had a great time walking/driving around Bucharest. You will learn a lot about the history here, and you might already know more then you think. If you need a restaurant recommendation just ask Cristina and she can set that up. also ask her about other sights to see on your own.I try to use TBL in every new city that I go to, and they never let me down. They guides always know their stuff.

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of Bucharest with Cris. I had wanted to tour the Palace of Parliament however, the week before my visit the government stopped tours for an unknown reason. Cris had excellent communication and let me know it was closed and came up with alternative options for our tour. We had a wonderful time walking around Bucharest and I learned so much! I highly recommend booking a tour with Cris.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Transylvania with Cristina. She was courteous, informed, and flexible. She did a great job of answering all of our many questions about Romania, and did her best to make our day enjoyable. Her car was comfortable and she knew exactly where to take us on each stop along the way. The whole day was a pleasure thanks to Cristina. We especially enjoyed talking with her and getting to know her a bit personally.

Cristina was a wonderful guide. She had prearranged everything that we had told her we wanted to see. She then amplified what we wanted to see with ideas and places all along the way of our 3 days with her. Her knowledge of everything we saw showed great preparation and she was always flexible to meet our wants and needs. She introduced us to wonderful local and specialty restaurants and to many new versions of Romanian foods. We certainly recommend her to people coming to Bucharest......

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much David for your kind words of appreciation! I truly hope to see you and your wife again in the future and I look forward to the next time we can enjoy the Romanian food together! Warm greetings from Bucharest, Cris

Cristina's tour was the highlight of our visit to Bucharest. The emphasize on the history of communism was most informative. Without this tour we could never have appreciated what Romania experienced under Communist control. Of particular interest was "The Memorial to the Victims of Communism and the Resistance. This small independently operated museum is a must. On a personal level, Cristina's a genuinely very nice person. is well informed and obviously enjoys her work.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Robert, Thank you very much for your kind words and appreciation, and for taking your time to leave a review for me, it is the best reward I can receive. I am happy you've enjoyed your tour, especially the Sighet Memorial. Thank you also for your useful suggestions, I will surely pay more attention to both issues! Warmest regards, Cris

Cristina is a lovely person who cares about giving you information about Bucharest. She arranged getting us a driver to take us from the cruise ship to Bucharest for the day who also was very nice and a safe driver. She did all that she could to take us to areas that would interest us providing lots of information. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to do this tour.

Cristina showed to be an extraordinary guide with deep and broad knowledge of Romanian history. We came away with a much deeper understanding of Rumanian society and how it have developed during different regimes, some visible in the capital, other's not so much. What also added positively is that Cristina herself experienced life under Ceaușescu and listening to her telling how things were left a big impression on us all. I give Cristina my warmest recommendations.

Date: Oct 27/12

Christina was a good hostess during our tour. She was knowledgeable about the history, open with her opinions and added interesting color and information to the sites we visited. She took us to a lovely winery for lunch which was quite relaxing and enjoyable. The only reason I am not giving her a higher rating is that her driving skills in the mountains were inadequate and upset the passengers and the other drivers. On top of that, her low beams were not working after dark which was dangerous!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the words of appreciation, and I am very sorry for the stress I caused. The low beams went off unexpectedly that day and I failed to deal with the situation. I tried to have the bulbs replaced by a mechanic at a gas station but had not because the person did not manage to do it and I was convinced it was a much bigger issue. I should have fix the problem by any means before continuing on the tour, and this is a lesson learned for me.
