Based on our past positive experiences with "ToursByLocals", we hired Liviu, for a 2 and 1/2 day tour of Transylvania. The tours included (1) Brasov-Probably the Best City in the World, (2) In-the-Footsteps-of-Vlad-the-Impaler-Dracula, and (3) Sibiu-European-Capital-of Culture. Liviu's commitment to excellence was met in all areas. We highly recommend this local high school teacher if you want a wonderful experience in his country.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Despite being a short first meeting, it was already a pleasure to show you around Brașov, and a promising moment annocing better experience.

Liviu is a skilled guide who provided an excellent orientation to Brasov. He cleverly started the tour in the museum of the Weaver's Bastion where there is a great model of the entire 16th century fortress. This helped us have a better understanding when we saw the actual walls and structures that are still in existence, and painted a very clear picture of what Brasov looked like all those years ago. Liviu is very knowledgeable, friendly, and entertaining, and his English is excellent. Highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is a piece of cake to guide tourists who really know why they have come to a destination, and that is to experience as much as possible of what it can give them. Good tourists generally get what they deserve, and then it is natural to thank such tourists because they exist. It is you who make guides good, and get us inspired. All the best to you and your gracious daughter, hoping the rest of your journey was at least as good.
Liviu was a very helpful guide who showed us places, that were even new to people of the group, who have been to Brasov before. The whole group (25 persons) was very impressed by his expertise and very friendly kind. Liviu war ein sehr hilfsbereiter Fremdenführer, der uns an Orte führte, die selbst für Reisende neu waren, die nicht zum ersten Mal in Brasov waren. Die komplette Gruppe (25 Personen) war von seiner fachlichen Kompetenz und freundlichen Art sehr angetan.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is great to show German people around to places that have had so much to thank the German influence in the past. I am glad if tourists could tell others to come and see for themselves. Es ist toll, deutsche Touristen an solche Orte zu fuehren, die wegen des deutschen Einfluesses so viel in der Vergangenheit gewonnen hatten. Ich freue mich, wenn Touristen anderen Leuten erzaehlen koennen, damit sie hier kommen und alles mit eigenen Augen sehen.
Liviu was an excellent guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable and entertaining. He was also able to graciously accommodate us even when we were delayed for our tour due to a long border crossing We had a wonderful tour and would highly recommend Liviu. Tamara Tatuch - Premier Ukraine Tours

Liviu was an excellent guide. He had planned the trip well with the sites that we had agreed upon. Very knowledgeable about the geography and history of each area. Excellent English and very personable to talk to throughout our day together. The last stop that I had requested was a bit off the beaten path with not the best signage or roads, but he was persistent in getting us there before dark and I was able to see and photograph the mud volcanoes. I highly recommend Liviu as a guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind comment and welcome back here to enjoy the many more or less off-the-beaten-path attractions still waiting to be seen!
The services offered by Mr Liviu were great. He devoted himself to us completely. Spent 1/3 more time with us then he was supposed to. Organised the trip, customised it. He was kind and extremely patient. He shared his knowledge and experience. Had enormous ability to find a way to do what we asked him to do. The guide not only did what he was hired for but also helped us a lot with our kids who had some digestion and motion sickness problems. We would like to recommend Mr Liviu for anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I wish I could have as many tourists, willing to absorb news about all places seen, as possible. I enjoyed this experience, and I'd like to think you did, too.
