Home Base

Our home base while in Romania was Brasov. A very picturesque city in the foothills of the Carpathians. From there we hired a guide with a car to drive us to several of the spots that are shown here; Rupia, Bran, Sinaia and Sighisoara. Hiring a guide was the best way to see this area of Romania because we were able to see precisely what we wanted. In terms of exchange, the cost was reasonable.

What a great idea, to hire a guide! Did you make arrangements through your hotel or a travel service? How did you find the right person?

We used a travel agent that was at our hotel in Brasov. They
recommended someone to us and he turned out to be quite helpful
although his english wasn't the best. Apparently he learned english
with a dictionary, no formal training.

I'm sure that made for some, um, interesting conversations! :)
