D. Donahue (United States) – May, 2024

We had a wonderful three days in the Transylvania region of Romania with Emanuel, our guide from ONEExcellence tours -- he is wonderfully knowledgeable, full of historical details and stories that really bring the sites that we visited alive. The tour provided excellent hotel accommodations (we especially liked our hotel in Sebiu) and a varied menu of places to visit and learn about -- from the luxury of Peles Castle and the drama of Bran Castle (loved the strands of garlic and the box of wooden stakes and mallets!) to the beauties of the old monasteries and churches we visited. Emanuel's guidance on the local restaurants in Brasov and Sebiu (where we overnighted) was right on the money. Loved it!

We want you to know how much we enjoyed our 3 day tour starting October 31st, 2023. Emanuel was truly thoughtful and has such a wide breadth of knowledge about history and any other subject that we continuously inquired about. He was patient and kind to us and because we happened to be the only two who had booked this small group tour, we felt like it was such a luxury to have a private guide. He is a very accomplished driver and we always felt very safe with him at the wheel as he is so experienced and knows the roads so well. Our only disappointment was the hotel in Brasov, Hotel Bella Muzica which is only a 3star property instead of the promised 4star accommodations. It was not a comfortable room and the wifi was very bad. However, that didn’t ruin our overall new love and appreciation of Transylvania that Emanuel instilled in us. We are very grateful!
