Top Attractions near Cluj: Turda Salt Mine, Alba Iulia Citadel & more The tour was fantastic and a great way to start my holiday in Romania. Florin was extremely knowledgeable about the area we visited (Alba Iulia, Turda Salina and Rimetea) and was never short of fascinating stories, anecdotes, and history. Was very good company and helped me gain a good understanding of the areas we visited. There was never any awkwardness or pressure to move on, and the pace was absolutely perfect. Would definitely recommend. As an aside, I absolutely loved Romania as a whole and will definitely return. Fantastic places, and people - thanks Romanian Friend!see more
Photography Tour of Romania: Traditional Villages & Local Life My son is a keen photographer - I’m more interested in people and places and the culture. Both of us thought this was the best few hours we’d spent in a long, long time. We walked for hours through breathtaking scenery, meeting local people and getting a feel for life in the Romanian countryside. Vlad is a wonderful host and the trip is absolutely the best thing we did on our trip. Don’t miss it - and go ahead and book if you are even vaguely considering it. Places are scarce and Vlad takes only small numbers each time. Thank you again Vlad for a simply wonderful afternoon and to Romanian Friend for recommending this trip based on our interests!see more
Vacaresti Natural Park: the Newest Urban Delta We had a wonderful and informative tour through Vacaresti Park with Carmen. She was an enthusiastic guide and clearly loves the area and appreciates the natural world as much as we do. We very much enjoyed looking at the plants and wildlife and hearing about the park's rich history. It was also lovely to visit this part of Bucharest that's off the beaten tourist path with a knowledgeable and friendly Romanian guide. Definitely recommended!see more
The Best of Danube Delta Tour: a Living Natural Wonder We worked with Romanian Friend to organize a private tour of the Danube Delta, which we really enjoyed. What we liked about Romanian Friend is their role as a curator of interesting, high-quality Romania-related experiences as well as the brokering with the right tour companies. The tour itself was well organized. We were able to see beautiful wildlife as well as explore the inhabited parts of the Delta, and we were well taken care of throughout. Highly recommend!see more
Tour of Transylvania's Countryside: Sighisoara Citadel & Fortified Villages Tour was great. Relaxing. Easy enough and informative. Florin was amazingly helpful with whatever we needed. Even pointing out to us some amazing swimming zones and lakes. Romanian Friend helped us plan the trip for our group even with short notice., thanks! Will be back to Romania ;)see more
