The four of us really enjoyed our tour with Claudiu, who was very knowledgeable with all aspects of Transylvania. He answered our many questions with lots of detail. Well Done!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!

Claudiu was an excellent guide, companion and driver for this very full day tour away from the city of Bucharest and out through the countryside. His knowledge of the area and the pleasing presentation made the castles and old town of Brasov even more interesting. He was also very good about giving us a bit of free time to stroll on our own. I would certainly recommend this tour and Claudiu as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for joining my tours. It was a pleasure to be with all of you these days. I hope to see you again!

Although Claudiu sent a replacement guide, he was excellent. The tour was excellent. The countryside in Transylvania is beautiful. Peles Castle is not to be missed. Dracula's castle was also very interesting even though the name comes from Bram Stocker used this castle in his book as Count Dracula's castle. Brasov is a terrific city. Be sure to allow enough time to explore it.

Everything went as expected. Claudiu was informative and helpful. Stopped for pictures and recommended locations for the best picture possible. We had a great lunch at his recommendation and found some time to stop at the "Old Town" area of Bucharest for a quick souvenir shopping trip not on the original schedule.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback! Best regards, Claudiu
Claudiu was punctual, knowledgeable and accommodated our every wish for breaks, meals, etc. It was an excellent tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your message, Janice! Any time. Best, Claudiu

Claudiu was a fantastic guide, he arrived right on time, kept the trip running smoothly and provided us with a tour combining factual information with a personal touch that I do not feel would have been possible to find with many, if any, other tour providers. No part of the tour felt rushed and everything was covered in great detail whilst sparing enough time to take it all in. We would not hesitate in returning to Romania, it is a beautiful place and we would be sure to book again with Claudiu.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lee for spoiling me with your kind words!

A great experience. Claudiu is knowledgable and friendly. His English is perfect. His car is new and immaculately clean. The tour exceeded all of my expectations and I highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking my tour and for visiting Romania!
The tour was fantastic and Claudiu has been a very competent guide, willing and friendly. The travel was very confortable and relaxing, Romania is a fascinating country and I think I chose, with Toursbylocals, the best way to get over it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Enrica! Hope to see you again. Best regards, Claudiu

Claudiu had a transportation problem getting back from wherever to be in Bucharest when our tour was to start so he arranged for Stephen to take us on this tour. Stephen was outstanding. The tour could not have been better. He provided us a level of service greater than expected. And the sites to be seen were super. Great great day. Thanks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for understanding the situation. I am glad you had a nice tour. Best regards, Claudiu
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: In the unusual case where a guide can't personally deliver a tour, the traveler is notified in advance and given the opportunity to cancel or accept the substitute.

Claudiu was an excellent guide who was not only very knowledgable but also very entertaining and made the trip extremely enjoyable. Transylvania was a real highlight and Brasov was a joy to visit. I would highly recommend this trip if you are heading to Bucharest for the weekend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the nice words about me and about your trip to Romania. It was my pleasure to accompany you on the trip to Transtylvania. Best regards, Claudiu
I would like to say thank you for the 2 days of tours in Romania we had with Claudiu. What a knowledgeable guide with a lovely, kind personality. My husband and I had a wonderful time sharing Romania with Claudiu. We highly recommend him - FIVE stars for a job well done. Janice & Claude, Ottawa, Canada
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! I hope to see you again.

Claudiu was a laid-back tour guide who knew much about his country and was willing to share his knowledge with me and two other travelers as we toured the beautiful countryside of Transylvania. He had a clean car and drove sanely and patiently, despite some traffic snarls. He was pleasant company, and I felt completely safe and confident under his kind tutelage. Highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking my tour and for your feedback!
Can't say anything bad re tour and guide...I am more disappointed with the country itself...The Sinaia monastery and Peles Castle were good...the Black church and Bran castle certainly did not meet the hype it has attained over the years...Can't say enough good things about Claudiu as he certainly kept my husband entertained ... Would i recommend tours by locals again...Most certainly yes but maybe not in Romania
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback! I know there is a lot to do in Romania, but this is why so special and different. Thinks you probably can not see happen from long time in your country are still commune here. It is not the place to look for modern. It is that place you could get the feeling of traveling back in time. This is Romania, a country of contrasts!
Carla Brauer-LalezariUnited States
Claudiu was an excellent guide, very knowleadgeable. The Peles Castle is absolutely beautiful. Bran and Brasov were also worth visiting. We highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Carla! I hope to see you again. All the best! Claudiu

Tour guide was great. My only complaint was that Peles castle was closed on Monday, and this was not mentioned when booking online.
