Emanuel was a fantastic guide who went above and beyond during this tour. He arrived on time, dropped lots of fun facts during the drive, and even took several photos for me to get the perfect shots for Instagram haha. I definitely recommend any tours given by him, I had a blast!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mo! I also had a lot of fun!

Emanuel was a wonderful guide. We had our 2 year old with us and he always kept her in mind not only in planning our activities but in the snacks he got for the car! It was a great 2 days seeing the countryside outside of Bucharest, and although I wish we could have seen more it was a perfect itinerary he customized for us. In addition to getting to see some places that were not on our initial list, he provided great history and information about the places we visited and Romania in general. Thank you!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Stephanie, I am very happy that the tour was good for you and mostly that it was not to tiring for Gwen. Regards

Emanuel was a great host and a credit to his city. He went above and beyond in every aspect. Despite us initially only booking the tour, he also found the time to pick us up and drop us off at the airport (in the early hours), as well as take us to the football with various tourist stops en-route. The trip itself was excellent with Emanuels knowledge, and friendliness, making it a special day in a lovely part of the world. Thanks for really making our weekend so enjoyable and hope to see you again soon!

I often hire a private guide for at least one full day. It's a risk, not knowing if you've made the right choice by reviewing a short bio and photo online. I met Emanuel precisely at our 7:30 departure time from the hotel. Once he figured out that I liked to have a bit of fun, he adjusted his style perfectly to meet my needs. We had a really great time touring the beautiful Transylvania countryside and he knew exactly where to go for lunch and other stops along the way. He's the best! Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeff, we had a lot of fun. See you next time!
Donald BostonRENO, NV, United States
Emanuel was prompt, intelligent, friendly and spoke excellent English. His knowledge of Romania provided us with two exciting days of touring the Black Sea coast. We visited and participated in many activities which tourists normally don't, visited a local farm with a traditional Romanian dinner cooked at the farm, stayed in a hotel on the Black Sea and saw many of the beaches which Romanian's visit on their vacations. He provided additional insight about Romanian Customs and History around our interests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Donald, all the best until the next time we meet.

Emanuel is an amazing tour not just because he knows the hidden gems and history but also becuase of his friendly personality and flexibility that made the trip really a memorable one.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Hashim, it was great. We had 3 great days with a lot of tracking.
We -a company of three friends- travelled to Romania a few days ago and had the Sinaia,Brasov, Bran tour with Emanuel. We were all very satisfied by the services and the professionalism of ToursByLocals. Most of all , we enjoyed our time because our guide , Emanuel leaded us to the Carpathians with SAFETY, SMILE and his valuable information. We had a great time despite the bad weather! Thank you, and we hope that we will see you again soon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great fun to travel with all of you. Thank you
Maricon A.United Kingdom
Emanuel organised a private one-day panoramic and walking tour in Bucharest. He did not only show me around but also provided information and answered satisfactorily all my questions, historical and current, that helped with my understanding and appreciation of Romania and its people. Pick up was on time and the car was spacious, comfortable, clean. He arranged to bring me to the airport at the end of the tour which was really helpful. Great guide who is passionate of his country. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Maricon for your choice. See you next time
