A great day
Thank you for such a great day! We truly appreciated and enjoyed you sharing your knowledge, expertise and passion for Bucharest! We would not have been able to truly appreciate the city without you and the information that you provided (despite the unseasonably frigid temperatures!).

More than a communist tour
My guide Diana went above and beyond what I was expecting of the tour. she was great in her knowledge not just of the city but Romania has a whole, and did not mind answering questions in regards to all of Romanians history and culture. with a focus mainly on the communist era of Bucharest. The highlights for me where seeing Revolution Square and seeing Ceausescu house. and it ending on the balcony on the parliament. Defiantly worth the price!!

Educational, sad and intriguing
A great city to explore. So much history but history that is so recent. You'd only understand this if you have experienced it yourself. Diane was great. Value for money was great. Truly life changing.

Very enjoyable and informative 9-day tour in Romania
My husband and I have recently returned from a very enjoyable and informative 9-day tour in Romania, planned to suit our specific requirements by Diana Condrea. Diana fulfilled our expectations superbly.
Diana speaks English fluently. As she is very knowledgeable about Romanian history and culture she was the perfect guide to the UNESCO World Heritage sites we wanted to visit. She also has excellent communication skills, providing detailed information whenever we requested it, and placing that information in a relevant context to help us understand some of the complexities of Romania’s checkered history. We found this very useful as it added to our appreciation of the various sites we visited.
Brilliant tour of Saxon towns of Transylvania
For any foreigners to Romania, Diana Condrea is the perfect guide. She speaks excellent English and has a deep knowledge of Romanian history, art and architecture. She was a fund of experience and advice about how to make the most of our 9-day tour of Transylvania and Bukovina. She is aware that many Western tourists prefer to stay in rural B&Bs rather than city hotels and that we wanted to see rural life as well as the main churches and towns. Her choice of places to stay and eat was an important part of this memorable holiday. She was flexible about adapting the programme to our budget. She was unsparing in meeting our wishes but left us free when we wanted time to ourselves. The result was an intense, memorable trip which we could

Superb two weeks in Romania
Just returned from a superb two weeks in Romania organised by Diana who was also our incredible guide. I thoroughly recommend Bucharest, Transylvania and the Danube Delta. All our hotels were excellent. Do get in touch with Uncover Romania if you want to see the best of this lovely country.
Friendly and knowledgeable guide
We had an opportunity to have historical tour of Bucharest with Ms. Diana. She was the most learned guide in our tour of 20 days. It was an educative experience to learn about the history of Romania, architecture of city and people. We had almost half day tour with her. She knows everything by heart and to listen to her is a pleasing experience. She ended the tour with lunch at Manuk inn, which was an ultimate place. She also gave very useful advice about restaurants in other cities and we truly enjoyed.
A very enjoyable and informative day spent on the communism tour. Diana is an excellent guide. I highly recommend the tour and Diana.
1 Reviewed July 25, 2017 An authentic discovery of Romania
We had a wonderful trip overall in Romania. The two guided tours we took with Diana were fantastic. Our visit of Bucharest was the perfect way to discover the city and its historical and cultural places. The experience let us see the city and its past through the eyes of a local. We also visited the Rupea Tower and the city of Brasov a few days later. We were charmed by the beauty of Transylvania and its rich history. Throughout the two tours, our guide made us feel at ease by listenning to our needs and by giving us precious advices.
Bucharest City Tour
Diana customized a wonderful day trip in Bucharest. Although the weather turned sour, (cold rainy day) we thoroughly enjoyed the informative and entertaining commentaries of the Cemetery, Churches, Old Town, and Ceaușescu's home. Lunch at Hanú Lui Manuc was great. Traffic in Bucharest is crazy, but Diana's management and utilization of a variety of modes of transportation saved time and was very convenient. We definitely recommend Uncover Romania for a local insight into the country.

The very best way to discover Bucharest
With only one full day to spend discovering the city of Bucharest, I booked a private tour. I thought that an all-day (7 hours) tour might be too much...................but quite the opposite. My guide for the day was Diana Condrea, and I could not have wished for a more knowledgeable guide. Her knowledge of the city, and its history and culture is staggering encyclopedic, but delivered in a way that is manageable for anyone, regardless of what you already know. From the history of the nation, architecture, the impact of Communism and life during that period. I really cannot recommend Diana any more highly.
I took history tour. It was private tour that lasted seven hours. We walk around the city's interesting places, buildings, churches including visit to Parlament house. Learned a lot about the communist era and its dictator. Very informative, I learned a lot about Bucharest history and Romanian history and traditions.
