Vlad fulfilled all his promises and even went far beyond. I got a fantastic sense of Romania as a country and felt like I truly achieved a basic understanding of the culture. We spent 12 hours together and were literally conversing the entire time. He has a deep historical understanding of all of the sites we visited and shared so many details it was unbelievable. He is truly passionate about history and he enthusiastically answered every question I had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Andrew, thank.you for the kind words. I'm glad when guests leave Romania with a good impression. Plus, as i spend all that time together with my guests, why not.to make it a quality time? ;) Looking forward to seeing you again!
Súper recomendado Vlad, la pasamos padrisimo y sus explicaciones fueron perfectas! Nos encanto hacer el tour con Vlad, no se arrepentiran! Tour en español perfecto!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias para tus palabras, Mitzi! A la proxima! :)

We had a very informative tour by Vlad travelling to Transylvania from Bucharest. Vlad is very knowledgeable about the country of Romania and about Constanta, as well. We visited the Black Sea on another day. Vlad's fees were very fair considering the long amount of time we were in the vehicle and the distances traveled. We felt comfortable discussing any travel topic with Vlad. We gained a lot of insight into the culture, history and outlook of the Romanian people thanks to Vlad's extensive knowledge.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tony, thank you for the kind words. It was a pleasure talking to guests so interested and prepared as yourselves!

Wow! What a fantastic tour. Everything went smoothly from initial booking of tour, emails with Vlad confirming tour details and the tour itself was wonderful. Vlad is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and his love for his job and Romania itself shines through. Peles Castle is stunning. Bran Castle is everything we hoped it would be in a breathtaking location. Brasov old town is one of the most picturesque places I have ever visited. My 2 teenage sons and myself had such a great time. Thanks Vlad!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Allan, and looking forward to seeing you back!!!

My daughter and I enjoy very much our 1 day tour. It was very well planned and our time was well spent. Excellent tour. Our guide was well informed and very helpful as we visited the tour sights. Again, excellent guide and tour.

I contacted Vlad in March when planning my visit to Romania. Not only did he advise on a day trip from Bucharest to Transylvania but also managed to obtain a ticket for me to attend a concert at the prestigious biennial George Enescu Music Festival. As expected, he was an outstanding guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm for Romanian history, geography and culture, combined with an excellent sense of humour, made him a great companion. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, thank you very much for the kind words. As i always said, i prefer my guests to see me more as a local friend than as a local guide. It`s been an honor meeting you and i hope to see you again in two years, at the next Enescu Festival :).
Vlad is very knowledgeable guide. He can tell you so many stories about all around you and Romania in general. Tour is interesting but be prepared for crowded lines.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words, Iryna. Well... regarding the lines, it's still high season, plus i hope you'll agree that i helped you "cut" all the "cuttable" lines ;)...

Vlad took us on a Castle tour in the summer of 2017. We absolutely loved the experience and would book him again! He is super knowledgeable about Romania and lovely to talk to. We definitely felt like get got the inside scoop on all of the attractions we went to and left with a insider's perspective on Romania. He can also get us past all of the lines, which is worth it, especially at the most popular attractions. We hope to use him again next time for a longer tour, and highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words, Adelina! Hope to see you guys here again next year, but for a longer journey exploring the beauties of Romania :).

Vlad is extremely well informed about the history, customs and sites in Romania. We had an absolutely excellent time with him. He was very accommodating and made extra effort to make us feel at home in Romania. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone visiting Romania for the first time and looking to get a Romanian experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tank you for you feedback, and you are absolutely right on both you comments, but i never advertised the car as suited for more than 4 ADULTS. The car IS for 4 adults and 2 children, and this is what compact MPV's like VW Touran are designed for. I have had discussions with groups of more than 4 adults i advised renting a minibus... Anyway it's been a pleasure meeting you and your 3 children are very well educated and sweet! Say hello to them for me again :)

Great guy, knows his stuff and a pleasure to have as a guide. Enjoyed this trip and he knew the places we went well. Gave good insight into the things that we saw. Very helpful for me to see it with a guide when I was out of my element in a foreign country.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback, Tony! Hope i raised your interest in coming and seeing more :). Happy New Year!
