Company Reviews

Cristina has helped us experience the warmth and hospitality

Cristina has helped us experience the warmth and hospitality, and the beauty that Romania has to offer.

From the beginning, I felt, because she’s local, Cristina will be able to give insights and extra little tips around the country. My instincts were right!
She is meticulous and realistic in planning out the routes and sights to visit – distance traveld each day, actual drive time, time allotted to meals, etc. She’s patient with all our queries, indecisiveness at times, and she strives to help meet our requirements and preferences.

Thanks again, Cristina, for a memorable holiday!
