I highly recommend Silvana as your guide. I was a single traveller and the 7hrs flew by. Lots to talk about & Silvana took an interest in what I was interested in seeing (and not seeing) and the tour was adapted as we went. I really enjoyed her open narrative on Romanian culture, politics and history. I feel like I got a real insight to this complex country and not a tour book summary. The food options give you local food experience and don't disappoint. Tip: don't eat breakfast before you go!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words and the wonderful day we spent together, Jody! Till next time, I hope.

A highlight of our trip to Bucharest was our time touring with Silvana. She was quite knowledgeable in the history of the Jewish people of Romania. Our walking tour was at our pace, and she was more than happy to explore our interests not included in the tour. We would highly recommend her as a guide in Bucharest.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you both very much. It was a true pleasure!

We asked Silvana to show us the Jewish quarter and tell us about 20th century history of Romania and Bucharest. She was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and thoughtful. She answered questions well. We were thoroughly enchanted getting to know her. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a private guide experience in this city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Jim! I was just as enchanted to know you & your wonderful family. Have a great holiday!

We had a day tour of Bucharest with Silvana In May 2019. She was a great guide for my wife and I. Silvana was knowledgeable, and clear in her explanations. She was flexible and adapted her tour to our interests(20th Century history). She was engaging and very considerate of our needs(water, rest, etc). We got to know her as a person which made it very special. I can recommend Silvana 100% as a guide for anyone. I should also mention that her English is excellent. Steve and Bev

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Steve & Bev, it was such a pleasure to be your guide for the day! Many many thanks for everything including your wonderful review.

Sylvana led us effortlessly via taxi and foot. Seating us in the Athenaeum, she enthralled us with a modern overview of Romanian history pictured in the encircling mural. Walking through the National Art Museum continued her overview of cultural and social history. Lunch at a beautiful Romanian restaurant and a visit to Stavropoleos monastery church completed our tour. She is extremely competent, aware of her culture and enthusiastic to share it while also eager to learn of others. A fascinating tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Herb & Lois. Have a wonderful time on the Danube cruise!

What a wonderful day we had with Silvana. She put together a full day tour for four people and the tour was split in two. For the first part, we had a walking/public transportation tour of the Jewish Quarter which we thoroughly enjoyed and about 4pm we went to the Old Town area for a short tour and then we went to an excellent restaurant and for a family style Romanian feast. What fun. We spent 3.5 to 4 hours with Silvana enjoying Romanian folk dance and stories. Thank you. You are the best.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Eileen. You & your lovely friends are the best!

Silvana was very adaptable. I only had 2.5 hours and she packed a lot in. I wanted to see both Jewish and general sites and she made good decisions for such a short time that I had. She's extremely knowledgeable, passionate and very nice. I would definitely recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words, Rhonda! I will send you the promised interview & a few film titles related to Romanian history, Roma slavery and local Jewish history. Best wishes!

Silvana is the perfect ambassador for Bucharest. An intelligent, enthusiastic woman that you know and feel loves the culture that her city and country has to offer. My wife and I came away so well informed on the history of this beautiful city, not only hearing but then seeing their gorgeous buildings/sites. Her driver (I'm sorry, :( for the life of me I cannot remember his name) was also a great source of information, as well as very friendly. Silvana was just fantastic, definitely recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Neil & Jessica! It was my earnest pleasure to meet you and show you the best of Bucharest. Till next time!
