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.

Top day in Bucharest
We were in Brasov as part of a motorcycle tour from the UK. On our 'rest' day we wanted to do a walking tour of Bucharest's Old Town and visit the Palace of Parliament. Diana made it very easy to do business with Uncover Romania. She quickly organised a bus and a guide, at reasonable expense, and we had a very good experience. Emilia, our highly knowledgeable guide, was an absolute star. Even though many of her responses to our questions began with the caveat "it's complicated" Emilia provided us with thoroughly entertaining and detailed explanations of the city's, and Romania's, rich history.Happy customers? Yes! Recommended? Highly!
Retezat Mountain Hiking
Prior to our hike:
Diana was extremely efficient, quick to respond, resourceful, and helpful. I would say we were a little high maintenance during this phase of the booking, but Diana endured us and was very professional.
Florin our guide met with us the night before and went over our hiking options. What we really appreciated was how bespoke it all was - he waited until the last day to determine best routes based on weather that weekend.
During our hike:
Florin was extremely knowledgeable and I felt we learned as much about Romania and Romanian history and culture as we did about our immediate landscape. He was very good at "reading" us both and accommodating our fitness/ levels
Private Walking Tour
We sent a fantastic time with Diana on a private walking tour of historical Bucharest - really informative, we learnt the history went thru old quarter viewed the parliament- Diana has a wealth of knowledge which she shared in a friendly way - highly recommend
