Lucy and Seetal, September 2014

We just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our Transylvania experience this week. We had a warm and friendly welcome from Cristina and Flavius was an excellent tour guide, friendly and helpful and knowledgeable, not to mention an excellent driver (The Transfăgărășan was an experience and a half!). Everything went so smoothly that we wouldn’t hesitate to book with you again!
