Reviews from travellers
The guide was more than excellent, the tour was very interesting. The explanations given were very good, understandable and helpful. I would sincerely recommend the guide and the tour.
Adela is an excellent tour guide! Her scheduling was flexible for scheduling my tour. She was full of information about Sibiu's history and we visited many more places than I expected - perhaps because we are both fairly fast walkers. It was great to take the tour early in my visit to Sibiu - it helped me to decide which other places I wanted to visit later. I strongly recommend - Adela is the best!
We made contact with our guide Adela by e-mail a couple of weeks before visiting Sibiu, and firmed up the arrangements for meeting a day or so before we arrived. We found her knowledge and enthusiasm to be excellent, and learned a great deal about Romanian history and culture. My wife and I really enjoyed the time we spent with her.
Our experience using Romanian Friend to locate a guide in Romania was fantastic! We found Adela who was such a knowledgeable, interesting, and fun guide, she made our trip totally more than we ever expected! My brother and I spent about 8 days in Romania, 3 1/2 days on tours with Adela, researching our Saxon heritage, and she far exceeded our expectations! We hope to return to Romania next year. We will certainly recommend Romanian Friend to anyone else interested in travelling there! Thank you so much! Karen Konnerth
We were very impressed with the knowledge of Adela. She was able to answer any questions we had about Sibiu, Transylvania or Romania. She was very proud of the city and you can tell. Great tour!
