Adrian gave a great tour of the countryside of Romania. We enjoyed the salt mines and how huge they were. I still can't get over how impressive they were. Michael really enjoyed the winery and can't wait to open up the bottles we purchases. The tour was beyond our expectations. You were an excellent guide. Over all it was a fantastic day.
Nice person, knowledgeable, efficient. (Has a lot of very interesting stories)
Romania is my native country but without booking a tour I will not know the hidden treasures which is hidden. Adrian was just the perfect tour guide, full with knowledge and I would recommend him with no hesitation..

For us this was day 3 with Adrian and another fun day. The salt mine is unbelievable, the wine superb and the muddy volcano the "Old Faithful" of Romania. These are not places you would get to see on an ordinary tour but add to the flavor of Romania. Another 5 star day for Adrian, a wonderful gentleman who truly loves what he does.

The BEST wine tour I've ever been on, and I live in Italy! ;-) Wines were great, hospitality was amazing. Highly recommend!

We had a really lovely day. The salt mines were a real experience and I enjoyed travelling down in the lift as the workers would have done.I did not think the mine would be bettered but then we went wine tasting a truly amazing time. The weather was a little unkind, but our guide Adrian, thought of everything and supplied Wellington boots to wear at the mud volcanoes part of tour. All in all a great time. Would recommend everyone to try this tour and company.

We traveled to Bucharest for a conference and were fortunate to book a tour with Adrian. It was our first visit to Romania (but likely not our last!) Adrian shared his knowledge of Romanian history and culture throughout the day. All three sites (the salt mine, winery, and mud volcanoes) were fascinating and well worth a visit, and the transit between was filled with pleasant and interesting conversation. Romania is a beautiful and complex country, and we HIGHLY recommend Adrian as a guide.

It is not possible to go wrong with Adrian as your tour guide. When we went to the winery, it was an extremely wet and rainy day. We got stuck in the mud, not before some excellent driving and attempts to make it up the hill though! He calmly called the winery and they brought the tractor to pull us up the hill. The winery itself was state of the art and I learned so much. The salt mine is amazing, as are the mud volcanos. If you have a free day in Romania, you do not want to miss this tour.

We were advised by the hotel not to take this tour(not because of Adrian)but because of the areas we were visiting. The hotel was totally incorrect in their advise. Adrian was very knowledgeable and pleasant to be with. He is an avid photographer and took numerous pictures of the sites we visited and was kind enough to email them to us. The tour consisted of a wine tour and tasting, the salt mines and the lava like mud flows. All were very interesting and Adrian communicated the history eloquently

This tour was awesome! The salt mine was such a unique tour and it was beautiful. Many of our friends who have traveled to Bucharest were surprised to find out that a tour to a salt mine was available. I have since referred them to Toursbylocals. Adrian was the best tour guide ever. He was punctual, very courteous and knowledgeable about the area. He made contact with us prior to our tour to find out if we needed anything. Not having been to Bucharest before, it was great to have someone there to help.

Adrian was a great guide and, more importantly became a friend by the end of our trip. He is insightful, flexible and will to persevere to ensure a great experience in Romania - a country he is clearly and justifiably proud of. In our case, he catered to our desire add additional wineries in place of the mud volcano and went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we got what we wanted. In short, we will return to Romania in the future and will definitely be in contact with Adrian!
