a must do booking if you are looking for a most inclusive taste of the Romanian countryside, with both castles, and a darling visit&lunch in a typical quaint city of romania...do not fret the length of the tour, the time is used most efficiently, and even if you feel as though you are not a big 'touristy' type of traveller, as we, this compact yet soulful day is not to be missed...

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are welcome and any time!

Claudiu was an excellent guide, companion and driver for this very full day tour away from the city of Bucharest and out through the countryside. His knowledge of the area and the pleasing presentation made the castles and old town of Brasov even more interesting. He was also very good about giving us a bit of free time to stroll on our own. I would certainly recommend this tour and Claudiu as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for joining my tours. It was a pleasure to be with all of you these days. I hope to see you again!

Claudiu was such a pleasant and informed guide for our city tour. There is so much history to know about Romania and Claudiu was able to give first time visitors just the tight amount of information to whet our appetites for another visit. He was so flexible in our tour, making travel with a 7 year old very easy.

Although Claudiu sent a replacement guide, he was excellent. The tour was excellent. The countryside in Transylvania is beautiful. Peles Castle is not to be missed. Dracula's castle was also very interesting even though the name comes from Bram Stocker used this castle in his book as Count Dracula's castle. Brasov is a terrific city. Be sure to allow enough time to explore it.

Everything went as expected. Claudiu was informative and helpful. Stopped for pictures and recommended locations for the best picture possible. We had a great lunch at his recommendation and found some time to stop at the "Old Town" area of Bucharest for a quick souvenir shopping trip not on the original schedule.

Claudiu was a fantastic guide, he arrived right on time, kept the trip running smoothly and provided us with a tour combining factual information with a personal touch that I do not feel would have been possible to find with many, if any, other tour providers. No part of the tour felt rushed and everything was covered in great detail whilst sparing enough time to take it all in. We would not hesitate in returning to Romania, it is a beautiful place and we would be sure to book again with Claudiu.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lee for spoiling me with your kind words!

Claudiu had a transportation problem getting back from wherever to be in Bucharest when our tour was to start so he arranged for Stephen to take us on this tour. Stephen was outstanding. The tour could not have been better. He provided us a level of service greater than expected. And the sites to be seen were super. Great great day. Thanks.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for understanding the situation. I am glad you had a nice tour. Best regards, Claudiu

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: In the unusual case where a guide can't personally deliver a tour, the traveler is notified in advance and given the opportunity to cancel or accept the substitute.

Claudiu was a very good tour guide. Due to my very disorganised nature the tour was organised at very short notice, but Claudiu still organised everything so that we had a good overview of Bucharest in the sadly short amount of time that we had a available. Very satisfied.

Claudiu was a laid-back tour guide who knew much about his country and was willing to share his knowledge with me and two other travelers as we toured the beautiful countryside of Transylvania. He had a clean car and drove sanely and patiently, despite some traffic snarls. He was pleasant company, and I felt completely safe and confident under his kind tutelage. Highly recommend him.

Can't say anything bad re tour and guide...I am more disappointed with the country itself...The Sinaia monastery and Peles Castle were good...the Black church and Bran castle certainly did not meet the hype it has attained over the years...Can't say enough good things about Claudiu as he certainly kept my husband entertained ... Would i recommend tours by locals again...Most certainly yes but maybe not in Romania

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback! I know there is a lot to do in Romania, but this is why so special and different. Thinks you probably can not see happen from long time in your country are still commune here. It is not the place to look for modern. It is that place you could get the feeling of traveling back in time. This is Romania, a country of contrasts!

Claudiu gave me a wonderful tour. He arrived well-prepared with a list of neo-Romanian buildings and well-informed about their architects. I got to know an aspect of Bucharest that I would have otherwise not have seen. Claudiu made a conscientious effort to show me as much as possible in the time available. His energy was inspiring! I am very pleased that I tried Tours by Locals and will definitely think of this service in future when I am planning a trip.
