Wonderful tour of Romania!
Sep. 2021
From the start, George was very responsive to all our inquiries. He even (unexpectedly) met us at the Burcharest airport and gave us a ride to the hotel. He also proved very flexible when we had to cancel a second country (due to COVID) and extend our time in Romania. He located another excellent guide to take over our extended tour, as his prior tour-commitments forced his early departure.

We were very comfortable in George’s van and impressed with his driving skills. The four of us benefitted from George’s knowledge and experience of living under Communist occupation of Romania, and we learned much from his explanation of the revolution that led to Romania’s independence in 1989, and the progress Romania is making as it transitions to a market economy.

Touring Romania gave us a great tour and excellent service
Aug. 2021
My wife and I booked a trip with Touring Romania for August 2021. We initially booked our trip in March. Of course, with Covid, our plans changed. George reworked our itinerary and adjusted everything for our revised dates. The plans changed again. George revamped the program again.

Throughout the summer George continued to help us. Finally, after over 30 emails, we were ready to go. We had a 9-day private tour of Romania. George had arranged a wonderful personal trip for us. We couldn’t have done it without George, and I highly recommend Touring Romania.

Our first Romanian vist with Beautiful Memories
Sep. 2019
We were a group of 3 who just returned from Romania with beautiful memories and experience of the country. It's our first visit and the entire tour was way above our expectation especially when we had Gelu and Vali as our professional private guide and superb driver.

George has informed us that he could not guide us but he was super patient in planning our itinerary. We could not really make up our minds on the places of interest but eventually George did a superb great job and we had a superb great time.Thank you very much George and we will surely be back again with you as our Guide next time.

Gelu was a our professional guide.He has extremely vast knowledge of Romania and the history. When we visited each city, he recommended restaurants with superb Traditional Romanian food. We really like them. Gelu is also very responsible, patient and polite. On the first night in Bucharest, he accompanied us to a supermarket which was just a few steps away from our apartment. He wanted to stay on with us but we told him we could handle on our own as it was late. He told us to apps him when we reach our apartment. Of course, we conveniently forgot while in the midst of packing our luggage. There were more than 5 missed calls from him.

We also like to specially thank and appreciate Gelu's help in looking for postal services. A big thank you Gelu and look forward to visiting your home in Brasov one day.

Our driver, Vali was a little shy in the beginning of our tour but has his fun side (Nu Nu Nu and eventually Da Da Da) He knows what we mean : ). He is a very safe driver. A big thank you Vali in managing our bulky luggages.

We came home with a deep understanding of the Romanian history and cultures, telling friends the beautiful and humble people we met and great experiences we had. We highly recommend using George's service.

We will be back again.

Romania - beauty and grace with Touring Romania
Aug. 2018 • Family
My daughter and I just returned from a spectacular eight days in Romania with George as our guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about the country's culture and history. We were fortunate enough to spend time in Bucharest, Brasov, Bucovina, Sighisoara, and Sibiu, with all of our accomodations and itinerary planned by George. He went above and beyond in ensuring we had the trip of a lifetime filled with many rich experiences. We enjoyed a traditional Romanian lunch with Maria and Liviu, and went to see Coca create her colored wax patterned eggs. Without his knowledge and planning we would not have been able to see and experience as much of Romania as we did. George was a joy to travel with and we highly recommend hiring George as your guide to tour Romania. We look forward to seeing George again to tour Maramures.

A wonderful tour seeing fascinating parts of Romania, including the painted monasteries in the Bucovina area. Our guide and driver, George was excellent, a fount of knowledge about Romania, its history, the sights we saw. He arranged the whole trip with very good hotels. It was a real pleasure to be with him. If you are thinking of going to Romania, taking one of George's tours is the one to go for!
