Geta is absolutely amazing, extremely knowledgeable, kind & easy to travel with. She tailored my three day tour through Romania to squeeze in as much in as possible (per my request). Absolutely 5 stars She made this trip very memorable for me - so grateful to have had her. Will recommend her to all my friends visiting the Romania area.
