Hello everyone, 'salut'!

My name is Diana and I am a professional tour guide.
I have a BA English and French degree and over 10 years experience in teaching.
I work as a full-time guide, accompanying foreign and Romanian tourists across Romania and abroad.

I live in Brasov and I am fond of the local history and culture. With me you will explore the city like a local, getting off the tourist-beaten tracks but without missing the main attractions, thus saving precious time and energy.

I will show you all the interesting corners of the old town of Brasov, the best places to hang out as well as the finest pubs and restaurants. You will also have the opportunity to see some hidden gems that you will not find in any travel book..

Would you like to explore Brasov but you cannot join my tour? Just tell me when you are coming and what you would like to see / do and we shall figure it out. Please send me a message before booking the tour, especially if it is short of notice (for technical reasons).

I am looking forward to meeting you,

Diana,
Your guide and friend in Brasov :)

Description

New in town, eager to explore downtown Brasov and you would like some company? Then this tour is perfect for you: you will see the main landmarks of Brasov, hear the legends of the city, discover interesting things about Brasov and Romania, find out about the best restaurants and local attractions.

The most exciting part of the tour is a walk in the forest behind the medieval walls of the citadel of Brasov for you to enjoy a great panoramic view of the city.

The tour starts in Piata Sfatului, the heart of the old medieval Brasov.

Do you know that Brasov was founded more than 800 years ago?

Who were the Teutonic Kinghts and what does the word ''Transylvania'' mean?

What about the Romanian district Schei and the groups of 'Juni' (young men) who live outside the walls of the ancient fortress of Brasov?

What do the four small corner turrets on the Catherine gate mean?

What did life look like in medieval times in Brasov and what did the fortification system of the city consist of?

Here are just some of the questions we are going to answer together during the tour.

Are you ready?

I will be right here, waiting for you, too!

Wonderful! Do NOT Miss this Tour!
Diana was a wonderful tour guide. She showed us parts of Centru that we hadn't yet visited, explained everything well and in excellent English, and we just had a really, really fabulous time. She customized the tour a little bit for us and was very willing to meet our needs (when we need a moment to rest, she found a great cafe for us; when we wanted to go a little longer, we just paid a little extra; when we wanted to stop for lunch, she helped us with the menu and explained some things about the local dishes). She was very flexible, a kind and informed lady, and we just really enjoyed the experience. Will definitely be doing one of Diana's tours again when we return to Brașov!
