Adrian gave a great tour of the countryside of Romania. We enjoyed the salt mines and how huge they were. I still can't get over how impressive they were. Michael really enjoyed the winery and can't wait to open up the bottles we purchases. The tour was beyond our expectations. You were an excellent guide. Over all it was a fantastic day.
