We have just come back from 4 wonderful days in Romania with Dan. He listened carefully to what we wanted and organised for us a highly customised and flexible tour combining our wish for trekking, countryside, history, culture, food and rest.
He met us off our flight with a big smile, bottles of water, fruit and a spotless car and drove us straight up to the national park (Piatra Crailui). He’s a good and safe driver and is very disciplined in safety (never answered his mobile, always checked seatbelts were done up) and this matters a lot to me so it made a real difference especially on the hillside roads.
We spent 2 nights in the national park and one in Brasov. In the national park we went for a day hike which Dan chose well for our level and we had a delicious lunch in a wonderful mountain hut with a view. He gave us knowledgeable but informal tours around Brasov and Bucharest and took us to two castles.
We had a lot of fun with Dan and he gave us plenty of space when my partner and I wanted to hang out together, but also was great company when we were together. He looked after everything and thought and planned ahead so we didn’t have to worry about anything. Nothing was too much trouble and he adapted almost before we had asked.
He’s knowledgeable about Romanian and world affairs and we were able to talk about the country and region from all angles, which meant that we really got an insight into Romania, its history and its direction. He’s a great ambassador for his country and perfect companion for a short trip to discover Romania.
I would thoroughly recommend Dan for his amazing customer service and responsiveness and likewise his company in general. Some of the places we visited can also be visited with his company on day trips from Bucharest. I definitely recommend combining castles, towns and trekking to get different views of the Transylvanian countryside. We’ll be back! Thank you.
