Go Romania Tours ~ TestimonialsSee what clients are saying about their experience with Go Romania Tours...
"My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time in Romania! I have traveled extensively with my work...but our recent vacation was the best trip I have ever taken. We went in August and the weather was gorgeous. Romania had a little bit of everything. We started in Bucharest and worked our way north then came back to the Black Sea for several days.
Mike and Christian set everything up with a local tour guide who has his degree in tourism from an English university, so he was excellent at answering all my questions (I'm a journalist, so I have a lot!). The accomodations were palatial most times and the food is incredible. We toured a Winery called Murfartlar that served a seven or eight course meal.
The people were friendly, service industry stuff was inexpensive, and your experience can range from extremely old-world provincial to modern day convenience.
I can't say enough good things about our experience or GOROMANIATOURS.com." -- Nikki, U.S.A.
"Everything went very well and we enjoyed our tour immensely. Eduard is a jewel. I am very glad it all worked out. Thank you." --
Larry and Janet, Mt. Holly, New Jersey, USA
"I had a great time in Romania, the guide that looked after me in Transilvania, Nicu, was fantastic. He was highly professional, nothing was too much trouble and very proud of his country.
The guide I had for the city tour, I've forgotten his name at the moment, was also very good.
I was extremely well looked after, thanks for the efforts of those involved." -- Scott, Melbourne, Australia
"We really enjoyed our tour. Eduard was very helpful and insightful. We will be contacting you in the near future for more cultural trips!! Thank you for all your help" -- Rosa, Canada
"We had a really good time despite the lack of enough snow for skiing. I must say that Romania had plenty to see and do in the absence of skiing. Our guides Nicu and David were excellent and very gracious hosts as well. We came away feeling like good friends with them and a true appreciation for Transylvania, Romania, and the people. Bran Castle was excellent, Brasov was a very nice city to be based near, and Sighisoara was a great destination with lots of great countryside to see along the way. We also enjoyed our time at Peles Castle and Sinaia. There are so many more things I could have easily (in hindsight) wanted to do such as the citadel of Rasnov, Tepes’ real castle (forget the name but it was on the other side of the mountains from Bran), the Corvinesti castle, and Snagov Lake.
All in all, it was a very nice trip in an area I knew very little about. I am definitely glad we went and saw such a wonderful part of Europe before it gets too overrun with tourists as Romania joins the EU and continues to make strides in its marketing. Thank you very much for helping to set up the entire plan on relatively short notice. I do believe that Nicu helped make our trip a truly wonderful experience with his personal views on Romania, its history, and enjoyment of showing us around. " -- Brian and Rachel, Texas, U.S.A
"Just to let you know we had a fabulous few days. The two city hotels were lovely and very well located. The airport hotel was fine, though seemed uninspiring compared to the other two (this is more a reflection on the two city hotels rather than a criticism of the Tulip). The sights exceeded my expectations, especially Rasnov as we thought it would be closed, so it felt like a real treat. I am glad that Eduard decided to take us there on the off chance!
The wine tour was also a real highlight, as we felt that we got really personal treatment. And Eduard made the trip a lot of fun for us. We both felt the trip represented real value for money and will certainly recommend this tour and Romania to our friends and collegues.
Thankyou for a lovely weekend. " -- Anne - Berkshire, U.K.
"We had a great time in Romania and enjoyed the whole experience very much and hope to return one day.
We found our guide Dan to be both very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Romanian history and culture and we found him to be very friendly and good natured.
This tour opened our eyes and gave us a good taster of the real Romania and not the negative image usually portrayed in the media.
Fantastic trip, hope to explore more soon!" -- Nick and Leanne, West Midlands, U.K.
"Thanks to your wise and efficient planning and the excellent efforts of our guide, Dan, it could scarcely have been better.
We saw much more than could be expected in such a short time, and that was due to Dan's long hours of driving, and encouraging us to go and see what we thought we were too tired to do, but were SO glad we did. He was considerate, thoughtful and kind and took care of so many details.
I would like to return to Romania one day to spend more time and see more of the country, and I certainly expect to contact you for assistance. I do not want to drive those roads myself, although Dan showed that it is possible to do so and survive. I very much appreciate your part in making Romania a part of my round-the-world trip. Thank you! " -- Beverly, U.S.A
"I had a wonderful time in Romania and really cannot thank you enough for putting me together with Nicu. He was an absolutely TERRIFIC guide, and we had a lot of interesting conversations, and I learned so much about the history of the Transylvanian region. Nicu really brought everything into proper perspective for me. He is not only incredibly knowledgeable, he is also very personable and his English is far better than I was expecting. I also appreciated his sense of humor! Honestly, I cannot say enough about my tour. It was a great itinerary, and the hotels were all good choices. Bella Muzica in Brasov was especially nice. I hope Nicu enjoyed himself as well. I feel like I have a good friend in Romania now, and if I return one day, I will certainly look Nicu up. Again, thank you, Mike for setting it all up. I am being completely honest when I say that the tour far surpassed my expectations, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone traveling to Romania.
Consider me a very satisfied customer!!! " -- Laurin -- I.L., U.S.A.
"The tour was very nice. Transylvania was beautiful and we appreciated Irina’s expertise. We had a good time." -- Ellie - Utah, U.S.A
"We had a FANTASTIC time in Bucovina. It, thanks to you, was one of the highlihights of our holiday. Lucy was a perfect host... she kept us well rested and absolutely well fed. Her hospoitatlity was the perfect antedote for the crazy long drive that we did. Our guide was also AMAZING. Honestly, there are not sufficent words to express how wonderful this leg of our trip was. Thank you so much for your service. I will, and already have been reccomending you to everyone I tell about our trip. Many thanks," -- Melissa - Huntington, NY, USA
"We just returned from at fantastic tour on the Danube Delta and in Transylvania.
Everything has been perfect.
Our guides have done a fantastic job, serving us around the clock and loading us with information. " -- Ole -- Denmark
"We had an excellent tour with our guide and driver. We all really enjoyed ourselves- learnt alot about Romania and would recommend the guides to anyone.
There appeared to be nothing which our guide did not know about Romania and the places she took us to visit, She was attentive and very helpful. She certainly made the trip and was happy to answer any questions we had.
The driver too was excellent- he accompanied us to the tourist areas and was very knowledgeable as well as an excellent and safe driver.
We would all highly recommend both yourselves as a company and the guides who truly excelled at their professions. " -- Cheryl -- Bexleyheath, Kent, UK
"Just a quick note to let you know that we had a great time in Romania. Nicu was an extremely hospitable guide and went out of his way to accommodate us. I will most certainly be referring the next group of people from USA to your services." -- Hisham -- Vienna, VA, USA
"Thanks for your help in organizing our tour of Bucovina. Lucy is great at Hide's Guest House. We really enjoyed her place and conversations with her. Uana our tour guide was fantastic. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay.
We just wish we could have stayed for a few more days. " -- Tim and Kathy -- San Diego, CA, USA
"Dan, our tour guide, could not have been better. He is incredibly smart, articulate, and sure knows his stuff. Any question we asked, he had an answer for. He was very understanding with my rather weird dietary restrictions and recommended excellent places to eat based on this.
We could not have been happier with Dan and the tour. We learned SO much from him about the history of Romania and the people. He was excellent and I would highly recommend him for any further tours.
Thanks again" -- Gillian -- Atlanta, USA
"The tour was absolutely wonderful. Nicu is awesome and my only suggestion is keep doing what you're doing now. We will definetely be back for a different tour and we also promote you guys here so much. " -- Norma and Ross U.S.A
"I enjoyed the tour into Transylvania very much and was so glad we decided to extend our time in Romania to include more than the 1 ½ days in Bucharest. We were able to see all the highlights that were planned. As two women in their 60’s traveling alone, we felt very comfortable and well “looked after”. I liked staying on Council Square in Brasov where we had easy access to restaurants, an internet café, and historic sights. I think we made the most of the time we had available. The mountains, castles, and Saxon fortresses of Transylvania were definitely trip highlights. " -- Jean - U.S.A.
"The tour was fabulous. You were right, Dan is a terrific guide and we had a great time. Dan was so accommodating to our needs, he was patient, funny and extremely well organized yet flexible. We changed some of our destininations for sight seeing and he was totally fine with rearranging things. I would highly recommend your company and him to anyone who wants to go to Romania. Hopefully we will be back in a year or two and I will contact you. Thanks so much for your help. " -- Shari -- USA
"You live in a beautiful country. We enjoyed seeing the painted monasteries and would recommend the tour." -- Lee -- U.S.A.
"We had a great trip to Brasov. Ion, our tour guide, was great - super informative!" -- Lisa -- U.S.A.
"The Danube Delta is amazingly beautiful. The birds, the reeds, the willows, and the waterways make the Delta one of the world’s greatest natural areas. I can’t say enough about the natural beauty of the Delta.
Mihai is a good guide in that he has a first-rate understanding of the birds and the natural features of the Delta. He has an uncanny ability to find and identify hundreds of bird species (in 3 languages!). He has great respect for the environment – Mihai saw that all garbage, plastic, etc. were all properly disposed of.
Mihai’s skill in navigating the back channels and byways of the Delta region is remarkable. His new boat is comfortable and quiet, and Mihai handles the craft well.
Two members of our group were French. Mihai spoke fluently with them, explaining what we were seeing and identifying the birds for them in French. His English is excellent.
Mihai’s wife Mirela was cook on the boat. She made delicious lunches for us every day and was very gracious about serving coffee and tea whenever we asked. The food at the guest houses was consistently good, homemade Romanian food. The guest house hosts were pleasant and sometimes generous with their homemade palinca!
I would do the tour again with Mihai because of his exceptional knowledge of the birds and the waterways. I would recommend the trip to others, but with the caveat that the accommodations are sub-standard.
Best of luck to you and your partner for the rest of the tourist season. Thank you for making all the arrangements for what turned out to be a wonderful adventure! " -- Carol -- Seattle, U.S.A.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the services of your company. I am really glad that we extended our stay in Romania and may add that to my "return to" list. Next time--I want to see the Ice Caves. " -- Dee Ann, USA
"Dear Christian, We are all in love with Romania!!! And also with Nicu and Daniel!!! They did just a super job and made our trip so very special. And how nice of them to stop at Dracula's Hotel for us on Halloween Day! The City Center Hotel was especially nice--and they were so very nice to us. And the last night we had maybe the best food of our whole trip, including the cruise on the Danube where the food was super good. It was at the Barraca Restaurant in Cluj. We could have been eating in Paris or London it was of such high quality. Christian, thanks so much to you and Mike for giving us such an extraordinary experience!!! And much luck in your future endeavors at Go Romania! " -- Elizabeth, USA
"Hi Christian. Just wanted to let you know that we had a great day with Dan. He was an excellent guide and really went out of his way to ensure we had a good time and show us as much as possible. I would certainly book a tour with you guys if I come to Romania again and will also recommend your team. " -- Lauren, Caymen Islands
"The trip went very well. David was a marvelous tour director and gave us so much info. We really appreciated him, and should we come back to Romania for another tour, we will most definitely contact you - as well as give a recommendation to travel with you should any of our friends plan a Romania holiday. Thank you so much for all your prompt attention and good planning. Tell David how much we enjoyed being with him. " -- Barbara, U.S.A.
"We are finally back home in Montreal. We now need a vacation after our trip!
I would like to thank you very much for the excellent service you have given us. Everything turned out beautifully.
The train tickets were waiting for us at the hotel in Budapest, and everything on the trains went smoothly.
The Hotel Savoy was just beautiful. I would highly recommend it. The rooms are beautifully decorated, and the location is excellent - you can walk everywhere. The breakfast was just fabulous - the best I had in Europe!
The tour was great as well. The coach arrived at the hotel on time, the tour was very interesting and informative, and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. Looking back on it now, we should have taken the tour as soon as we arrived and walked around the next day - at least we would have known what we were looking at!
Once again, I would like to thank you for arranging everything. And especially for going through the trouble of adding a fourth person at the last minute. I apologize for all the extra work you had to do to accomplish this, and I'm very happy to report that everything went smoothly, and the four of us enjoyed the tour very much.
I hope we can do business with you again some day!
Thanks again," -- Susan S. - Montreal, Canada
"I'm back in Canada now and would like to say that my trip to Romania went very well with mostly fine weather. The guides were good and the trip to the Danube Delta was especially interesting. Romania is a great country" -- Valerie -- Saskatchewan, Canada
