The Trip of a Lifetime

Whether you are looking for someone to handle all the details or you would like a tour personalized around your interests, you couldn’t find a better tour guide than George or company than Touring Romania.

"The short and long of it is: if journeying across Transylvania in the care of a friendly, knowledgeable, and unflappable guide who will tailor the itinerary to your every need appeals to you, then you should choose Touring Romania. My friend and I approached George (the guide) with specific interests in traditional life, history, and hiking the countryside, and over the course of three months and 80+ e-mails we put together the two-week tour of a lifetime. If I said, “I’d like to learn how to cook traditional food,” George responded with, “I know a lady in Breb who would be happy to teach you.” When I said, “I’d like to walk between these two villages,” he answered, “The sheepdogs on that route can be unfriendly; let’s have the shepherd drive us in his horse-drawn cart to his sheepfold, and then after a lunch of fresh cheese, bread, and tomatoes, we can have him drop us off at the forest so we can walk the rest of the way.”

When it rained, he had umbrellas; when we were hungry he knew the best places to eat (and the best gelato stands for dessert!); when we explored old cities he explained the history in the clear, storytelling manner of a born teacher. Since I’d studied the history before coming, I asked him question after question – and he always had an answer. (But if I hadn’t been so interested, he would have spoken about something else with equal cheer. I’ve never met a person so able to put anyone and everyone he met at their ease so quickly.) Together we navigated the crowded corridors of Bran Castle, learned how to work a loom, and trekked up a mountain lush with wild raspberries. In every situation, I never saw him anything other than positive, resourceful, and considerate of everyone else’s needs.

Whether you are looking for someone to handle all the details or you would like a tour personalized around your interests, you couldn’t find a better tour guide than George or company than Touring Romania.
