private tour guides by Uncover Romania -- excellent
During my recent trip to Romania, I had opportunity to hire private tour guides with Uncover Romania for the Jewish Bucharest tour and the Communist Bucharest tour. The guides were very pleasant and knowledgeable, and everything was arranged very well.
Jewish Bucharest Tour
We had a very interesting tour with a local woman guide that really knew the theme and took us to all interesting places, unfortunately, some synagogues were closed but we warmly recommend the tour

Laura was an excellent tour guide.. my friends absolutely loved her.. they were so impressed with her deep knowledge of Bucharest and also general wider knowledge and her english was very good.
I and my friends would have no hesitation in recommending her .. moreover.. one of my friends has already asked me for your details so will pass this on.
Thank you for making it a memorable experience.
Amazing and Fascinating!!
We had an amazing and very informative tour and I strongly recommend it to anyone in Romania. It provided a very detailed explanation of a part of modern world history that is not frequently talked about. The itinerary is full of interesting sites and we were able to see so much. All the sites are important to the topic and very interesting to visit. All relevant background information about the topic was given, as well as many touching stories of average peoples experience during Communist Romania. Anyone who would take the tour would strongly enjoy, appreciate and learn a lot from this tour, weather or not they know a lot about Communist Romania before taking the tour. Diana, who was our guide, was very friendly, very well informed and
Peles, Brasov, Sibiu and Horseback Riding in Carpathian Mountains
Diana was phenomenal both in willingness to orchestrate a custom itinerary involving a day of history led by Diana to Peles and Brasov followed by two days in the Carpathian Mountains horseback riding. Diana has an incredible knowledge of history of Romania, definitely more than I could absorb and left me with a desire to learn more about Romania's history upon return home. Peles was amazing an we left early enough that we basically got to tour the castle alone! (A bit of luck thrown in as well to make that part occur.) The two days in the mountains horseback riding was incredible, and a bit more adrenaline than originally anticipated on the horses! The scenery was very beautiful and the family who managed the horses and mountain hut
Does history repeat itself?
My husband and I booked this unique, experiential walking tour of the darker 1980s Ceaușescu-era in Romania's history. Diana was our guide for the day. A keen and well-studied historian, Diana is a fountain of knowledge, as well as continuously inquisitive. She brought the history of Communism to life in this full-day tour, taking us back in time to the embryonic beginnings of Communism in Romania. We were fortunate to begin our tour inside the spectacular Atheneum concert hall, where a music rehearsal was taking place. The importance of the Atheneum, and how its surround of historical frescoes evaded Communist re-painting, was brought to life. I will ensure there are no spoilers in my review, as I want to encourage as many people as
I used this agency to book two, one day guided tours for my family. Both times We got very profound tour guides and tours as we like. Communication was always clear and reply's prompt. I would definitely recommend this agency.

Private tour of castles near Brasov
I highly recommend Uncover Romania. and Diana. In May 2019 I had to go to Brasov for a business trip. I decided to go a day earlier and visit castles around Brasov. It was a private tour which Diana organised just for me. We visited Bran and Peles castles and Sinai Monestry. Beautiful experience, with Diana who was very knowledgeable and professional but also very pleasant and charming.
Walking tour of Braşov - brilliant!
Spent a wonderful few hours walking round Brasov with Carmen. She is extremely personable, and knowledgeable and really brought the history of the city to life. I was a little hesitant about doing the tour with my parents when it was below freezing, with significant snow on the ground, but this was not an issue, and she chose walking routes that were clear and utilized the time we spent inside the Weavers Bastion and Basilica Neagra to great effect. It was great to hear about the research she is doing into everyday life in the medieval city, and Carmen was able to share more detail and provide deeper insights than I have not heard from guides on other tours. In short - it was great!

We went on the Transfagarasan tour and it was amazing! The guide, Diana, was so knowledgeable and interesting to listen to that you could clearly feel how much she loves and cares about her homeland. She is really devoted to her business and a nice person too! She and Radu, who was our driver, answered all our questions about Romania with patience and enthusiasm (even political ones). The drive itself was very comfortable and smooth, so we had enough time to see every beautiful spot we passed. I definitely recommend Uncover Romania to anybody who likes a personal touch or keen on learning new stuff!

Sibiu Walking Tour
Diana was our guide for the Sibiu walking tour. She is very informative and was willing to answer our many questions about Sibiu and the history of the area. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone new to Sibiu or visiting for the first time.
