Christi is an awesome guide. Punctual, friendly, and very informative. He is very knowledgeable and needs no hand written notes to describe the tour as we travel. We were a group of 5 seniors with some mobility and other challenges, and Christi was able to accommodate all those issues. Christi was very flexible in his schedule according to the needs of the group. We would highly recommend Christi as a guide.

My husband and I had a great day with our guide Cristi. He was prompt with our departure and delivered a great over all touring experience. Cristi is very knowledgeable, friendly and made sure we had the day we wanted to experience. Something you can't get on a tour with a large number of people in a group setting. The value for us on a private tour was well worth the time and money spent, and will definitely consider "Tours by Locals" for future. I would encourage everyone to make their own comparison.

We had a wonderful time exploring Bucharest with Cristi. For the first part of the tour, he drove us to various places in the city like the Village Museum and the Palace of Parliament, explaining about the history and culture. Then we spent the second part wandering in the lovely Old Town. Cristi chose a great place for lunch which served authentic Romanian food. Cristi is very knowledgeable and easy to understand.

Our tour to Transylvania was amazing, and I'm so thankful that we had Cristi as our guide. Cristi is a great ambassador for Romania--he loves his country, is very knowledgeable, and his English is excellent. I very much appreciated all of his attention to detail including his punctuality and his choice of restaurants and activities. The food was so delicious! I'm still dreaming about it. :-) I would highly recommend Cristi if you will be touring in Romania. You won't be disappointed.

We enjoyed our "Day at the Black Sea" tour with Cristi Stan very much. Cristi is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide and he has an excellent speaking voice. He took us to interesting places in Constanta such as the archeological museum, the minaret at the King Carol mosque (where we climbed to the top), and the old Casino of Constanta. Cristi also took us to the Mamaia Sea Resort where he gave us time to have lunch and then dip our toes in the Black Sea. We highly recommend Cristi and this tour.

Date: Jun 20/18

I booked 2 tours with Cristi during my stay in Bucharest. He is timely, knowledgeable, personable and professional. This tour was interesting for the history. Veliko Tarnovo is a charming town with a very old citadel, and the rock church was fascinating. The restaurant recommendation was excellent (your cost), and Cristi even showed me places shop where the owners were making the items themselves. If history is not your thing, choose Cristi for a different excursion as he is a great guide.

Tour: 3 days in Chisinau, Bucharest, Romania
Date: May 15/18

Cristi was fantastic. He is intelligent, geopolitically and historically informed. He agreed to drive us to Transnistria. His driving ability was the best. He is intellectually curious. The drive was about 1000 kilometers over 3 days. An absolute pleasure. The side trip made the whole trip a much richer experience. The winery in Moldova was an experience in and of itself. Others should consider doing the same itinerary but I might suggest 3 nights 4 days instead of 2 nights 3 days

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi James, I am happy that you enjoyed the tour. It was a pleasure and a very nice experience for me as well. Thank you for your review and tell me how is the wine and the cognac. All the best, Cristi

Christi is an outstanding local guide. Our tour was booked on a local holiday when some of the areas to be visited were not open, but his knowledge of the area made it seem as if we had not missed anything. We would definitely book his services again if we visit Bucharest in the future.

Cristi showed up at our hostel on time. Conversations were easy. He was friendly and informative. Throughout the long day, Cristi made sure we were comfortable. Overall, Cristi was a good tour guide. In regards to the tour itself - highly recommend. Especially if you are looking to do something outside of Bucharest. It's a long day, but, you do get to see a lot.

First time user of Tours By Locals and will use again based upon my experience on this tour. Asked Cristi to start an hour early and he did that no issue. No question I asked was unanswered and he understood what we were looking to do - for example we are not shoppers and he didn't bring us to a lot of shops. Restaurant was great that he chose and he paid his own tab - on other tours the guide expected us to pay without even asking. Nice touch. His car is comfortable as well. Thumbs up to Cristi

Cristi was an excellent guide. He was prompt and met all established time constraints. He is very knowledgeable and provides detailed explanations of the sites and locations, often with a humorous story or local legend. There were some minor schedule adjustments that needed to be made due to access to locations and some changes we requested; Cristi handled them with ease and scheduled alternate events that were interesting and informative. We were extremely happy with Cristi, he is a true professional.

Christi was a wonderful tour guide. Due to no fault of his, we made it all the way to the salt mines only to discover that they had closed for the day due to a problem the previous day. After thinking quickly, Christi took us to a nearby salt pool resort where he recommended some lovely Romanian dishes for us to try. Once that was over, we went on to the wine tour. We got to see the whole order of operation, which we had never seen before! Definitely with bookings. Christi was a wonderful guide!
