We had an amazing honeymoon thanks to Silviu! He was so knowledgeable, kind, attentive, and just overall a great guy. He introduced us to so many amazing traditional Romanian food and drinks from Țuica, Pălincă, and Fetească to Mici and Tochitură. Silviu got us a great guide at Corvin Castle that gave us the full history of the castle and John of Hunedoara. It was like a episode of Game of Thrones (when the writing was good). Silviu says we lucked out with her because they aren’t always around to give tours. One of the benefits of going on the offseason is you really get a more personalized experience. Silviu really tailored the 4 days we spent with him to fit exactly what we wanted. The roads in Romania can be tricky to navigate but Silviu is a great driver and we felt safe the entire time with him. We highly recommend booking this tour and if you’re fortunate enough to get Silviu as your guide, prepare for an amazing adventure.
