Our day tour with Adrian was organised late, however Adrian was very professional, accommodating and flexible replying to queries promptly. He provided us with the very best experience of Romania we could have had in the little time we had. Adrian was very polite, friendly and is a very knowledgeable guide, explaining wonderful insights into the history about the places we visited. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Adrian and would highly recommend him as a guide. We hope to return to Romania some day

We spent 5 days with Adrian on a tour of Bucharest and northern Romania. It was a delightful experience. He is a very knowledgeable guide with an endless inventory of interesting and instructive stories about the sights, the country, the people and the politics of Romania and it's neighbors. He is very attentive to all the details all of the time. We highly recommend Adrian to you as a guide in Romania.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your generous review. It was a pleasure traveling with you all. Best wishes, Adrian

We had a wonderful 2-days with our private tour guide with Adrian. Not only was he knowledgeable of the tour, he had a broad wealth of knowledge of many things including history of Romania. Adrian made all 6 of us feel comfortable, well-informed. He would go above and beyond to make sure we were all taken care of. His English is fluent and with almost no accent. He had a sense of humor which made our tour even more enjoyable. I highly recommend Adrian as your tour guide if you visit Romania.

I very much enjoyed Adrian as my guide. I was lucky enough to have him for two tours, and both were very interesting. Adrian is full of great information, historically, culturally, and can answer most any question you may have. I thoroughly enjoyed my tours and hope to meet with Adrian again in the future.
Luther AabergeUnited States

Between time of booking our tours with Adrian and actually meeting him there passed between us many emails. At all times Adrian was very helpful with my queries and when the time came to do tours with him it all turned out beautifully. Adrian was very knowledgeable and our group of four also had lots of laughs with him. No point in getting the facts if they are told in a dry, boring way. In actual fact could not fault Adrian in any way and would definitely recommend him as a guide.

This is late in coming, but Adrian was an absolutely marvelous guide from Bucharest, over the Carpathian mountains to Transylvania and back. He even made dinner reservations for us in Bucharest as we returned there at the end of a long day. I highly recommend him to anyone visiting Bucharest: intelligent, knowledgeable, very funny man.

Touring with Adrian was like having a close family friend guide you. He struck the perfect balance of guiding while also allowing us our own space as a family of 4, and adjusted the schedule around our particular preferences. He has amazing stories about his travels, and hanging out with him is always fun! As a vegan, he was easily able to accommodate dietary restrictions while still suggesting superb local fare. We have traveled to over 20 countries and Adrian is one of the best guides we have ever had!
Steven StartUnited States
Very flexible, we changed the itinerary on the fly.
Peter GrimmUnited States
Extraordinarily knowledgeable individual with whom it was a pleasure to spend four days!! First class experience from pickup at the airport to delivery at our river cruise ship. Adrian was careful to avoid "tourist traps" and showed us the best of Bucharest and Transylvania. I can not give Adrian a higher recommendation. His restaurant selections, for both lunch and dinner, were exceptional. This is an individual with whom you can not go wrong.
Minaz AsariaUnited Kingdom
We had a fabulous time in Romania and Adrian was very knowledgable and helpful plus punctual at all times. There was flexibility in the itinerary which was important when travelling with children and frequent changes of mind. Overall the trip went very well and Adrian was with us for four days which included day trips top Constanta and Sinaiha.

Adrian is an extremely knowledgable guide. Highly recommended. Thank you Adrian.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Melissa, Thank you for your feedback and our great time together during the tour. I left a message with Daniel, too. He will tell you about it. I will also try to send it to your phone. Best wishes, Adrian.
We thoroughly enjoyed our-five day individual guided tour of Romania organized through Tours by Locals. Our guide was very professional and demonstrated a deep knowledge and love of his country. Although our itinerary was arranged ahead of time there was a lot of flexibility to modify it keeping in mind that we needed to reach a destination point and our hotel each day. A very interesting and educational trip with some spectacular scenery along the way. We highly recommend it. A.
Adrian is one of the best guides we had. very prompt and thorough in email responses, he managed our expectations very well. on tours, he provided very practical recommendations, and is very conscious on how to maximize the tours and sights so that we can we get the most of our visit. He is well versed in history as well. Highly recommend Adrian!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your generous feedback! Best, Adrian.

Thank you for two days of wonderful touring. You were so informative, kind, patience with my slowness in walking, and helpful. Great guide.
Susan K.Ottawa, ONTARIO, Canada
Adrian took four of us on a very interesting two-day discovery of Transylvania. The arrangements for the tour were clear and thorough, and he delivered on each commitment. His vehicle was perfect for our small group. He made sure that we saw as much as possible and his commentaries in the car were most interesting. When we stopped he guided us, made sure we saw as much as possible and gave us in depth information. Thank you Adrian for your attention to detail and for introducing us to Transylvania.
Anna TheofilopoulouUnited States
This was an excellent tour from every point of view. It even exceeded our expectations. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informed about all the sites we visited. He made excellent suggestions for additional sites. He was punctual, courteous, considerate of our wishes and always very helpful. We came away with a good knowledge of Romania and its people, not just Transylvania, which was the focus of our tour. We would not hesitate to ask Adrian to be our guide again.
James WilkinsWildwood, MO, United States
Adrian was simply outstanding. His professionalism and knowledge made us quite comfortable in such a large and congested city such as Bucharest. We were so glad to have met and worked with him...we gained insights and knowledge that no travel book or brochure could possible provide. If there was a six star rating than it would apply to him.
Cristina de LeonPhilippines
Very nice tour. Our guide was excellent, and very patient. We travelled with our two young boys (soon 5 yrs and 2,5 yrs) and it was very tough. Probably not recommend travelling with children at that age on a tour like this, but the tour itself was very interesting. We have only nice things to say abour our guide.
Romania is a lovely country but when you have a great guide like Adrian Rusu the experience would be exceptional!!! Adrian tailor made a 6 day tour for us and included the highlights of Bucharest, Brasov, Sibiu and Sighisoara as the main stays whilst exploring other places on our way. Would recommend this guide to anyone visiting Romania as he is extremely well informed about anything!!!
