Testimonials

Your input is important to us. Please provide your valuable feedback. Here are some testimonials from our clients:

I sent Gabriel a note via this website when I had already arrived in Brasov to see if he could take me to Bran Castle and see some of the countryside for a daytrip. He responded very quickly and accepted the tour on short notice as well. Gabriel is an excellent tour guide! My BIG mistake was in not finding him earlier in my trip and arranging more tours with him. He has a tremendous depth of knowledge and pure love of Romania that will keep you entertained, informed, and certainly impressed! I travel all over the world as a blogger & photographer and Gabriel is the top guide I have had. Bar none! Do not miss out on his expertise... Gabriel - Thank you SO much for your tour and your friendship! Cheers, JourneysofJim

Abbiamo fatto un tour di un giorno con Gabriel da Brasov fino a Bran e Peles e Sinaia, è stato molto interessante. Gabriel ci ha spiegato in italiano la storia passata e recente della Romania, con grande disponibilità. Grazie Gabriel della bella giornata!

Ivan was a great, funny and knowledgeable tour guide.
We had a fantastic time on our three castle tour.
He picked us up outside our apartment and made the whole process very easy and enjoyable.
Thank you very much, we will be back :)

Hi Gabriel
I am sorry I am so long in adding my testimonial.
I decided to take a train & a bus to get to Bran castle. At the completion of my 3 hour train ride I discovered I still had a 45 minute bus ride. Gabriel approached me & said he would take me, as a 64 year old woman travelling alone, it caused me great concern but I either went with him (I had received feedback not to trust taxis) or went back to Canada without visiting Dracula's castle. Gabriel was great, he waited patiently for 45 minutes while I took the tour. I greatly regret not have more time to spend in the area.
It would certainly not hesitate recommending him or call upon him again should I find myself back in Romania.

If you are planning a trip to Brasov, Gabriel is the perfect guy to call. We booked 2 days tour and he arranged everything according to our needs and preferences. We wanted to stay and see more of Transylvania but due to time constraints, we have to shortened it to 2 days. Even for the short amount of time, Gabriel made everything perfect. Only positive words to describe to such an amazing experience we had. We will definitely recommend Gabriel to others and will booked him again in the future.

Happy with the tour Gabriel offer!
Well, I did not stay in the hostel but booked for a day tour with Gabriel, visiting Bran & Peles Castle, Rasnov Fortress and Sinaia Monastery. I run into Gabriel in the train station and he show me which bus to take, how to get ticket and to find my hotel, not knowing I will give him any business… he also give me info of the tour company he running. After settle in my hotel and walk around the old town, I desire to have Gabriel help me plan my trip the next day to see the surrounding areas. When I was in the hostel, I notice that the place was very clean and the staff was really friendly. We settled with the itinerary and fare ( which I think is fair ) Gabriel pick me up in front of my hotel the next morning, he was on time. Everywhere we go he seen know it and the people very well. He is a good driver, he give me enough info of where we going to visit (not overwhelming, I won’t be able to remember all the year, date, name, size…like some tour guide does) He is flexible with time… when I need more time for lunch or stay longer in some site.
I will recommend Gabriel to my friends when visiting Romania. In fact, I already recommend Romania to some of my friends, I have a good time there.

We are a group of friends from Hong Kong and booked a tour from Hostel Gabriel. He is our driver and tour us on the day trip to Bran Castle - Rasnov Fortress - The Real Dracula's Castle Poienari. He speak very well English, nice, funny and professional. He gave us a lots of information about Romania. During the trip, one of my friend was not very well and couldn't climb to the fortress at the top of hill, he made another suggestion and see sighting in the areas. The monastery is very beautiful and we had a very wonderful day with Gabriel. And we highly recommend their day trip tour to everyone want to travel in Romania, it is value for money.

On our first night in Brasov we learned that Gabriel offers tours of Transylvania and with a last-minute notice he was more than happy to give a tour the following morning. He drove us to four locations: Peles and Bran castles, Sinaia monastery, and Rasnov fortress. Along the way he shared history and fun facts of the area. Gabriel has a wealth of knowledge and a great personality to provide an exceptional tour to remember for a life time. We also observed how friendly and caring he is with anyone he encounters.

Gabriel, thank you for a wonderful experience of Brasov, its culture and history. We look forward to touring with you in the future. Cel Mai Bun Gazda!

Gabriel was a great tour guide. He accommodated our rather short stay in Romania, and took us to a lot of sites within the 2 days, all for a very reasonable price. He was cheerful, knowledgeable and proficient in many languages. I highly recommend using him as a tour guide..we certainly will book again with him if we return to Romania to visit the Poenari castle and Transfagarasan highway. Thank you Gabriel!
