Our guide, Laura, was enthusiastic, personable, knowledgable and spoke excellent English. She was open to our questions, and very informative. She took us to a Jewish theatre and Synagogue where we met some very interesting people who were old enough to remember a lot of the Jewish history of the last 50 years. We also toured the neighborhood where Jews lived but are gone today. Laura had a great attitude and excellent English. We were sorry when the tour ended because it was so enjoyable.

Together with my wife, I operate small group tours for Australian clients under the Tripwired Tours label. After a comprehensive reconnaissance tour of Romania organized by Diana Condrea of Uncover Romania in 2019, we had a tour group booked for spring 2020 but owing to border closures we had to cancel. Diana has been an absolute jewel throughout this tough time, keeping in touch, keeping us up to date and best of all she has managed to return 100% of the deposit we paid through her to various hotels in Romania. This is a stellar performance, and the kind of measure that restores confidence among travelers in this time of uncertainty. As soon as we are able to take a group to Romania we'll be back there, it's a part of Europe unlike any other, and of course we'll be organizing our tour through Diana.

During my recent trip to Romania, I had opportunity to hire private tour guides with Uncover Romania for the Jewish Bucharest tour and the Communist Bucharest tour. The guides were very pleasant and knowledgeable, and everything was arranged very well.

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 very helpful. She explained the background and context of relevant political events very well. She explained the relevance of each site we saw very clearly and with great detail. She answered all of our questions very well, helping us to know a lot more about the topic. She also gave very helpful advice about directions, and good lunch dishes where we went for lunch. This trip would have been amazing with anyone but she made it even better.

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 were warm and welcoming and prepared delicious meals for us upon return each day.

Highly recommend booking with Uncover Romania, really great experience.

Hi Michael, Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts about your tour. It was a pleasure and lots of fun spending time with you. For sure, I will remember how completely empty the castle was. I'm sure the horses remember you as well :) Best, Dana

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 possible to take this unique tour. From there, it was on to Revolution Square and environ, as Diana took us through the steps leading up to the 1989 Revolution. Included in the tour itinerary was a visit to the home of the Ceaușescu's, only opened since 2016. From there, it was on to the Militar neighborhood, where we visited the living-museum experience of Ferestroika. Originally, we had hoped to visit the Palace of Parliament - Ceaușescu's gargantuan megalomaniac construction project - but it was closed for private meetings. So Diana offered us the substitute of the Ferestroika tour (for which you can also read my review here on TripAdvisor). This whole day was one I will carry for the rest of my life...it was so deeply thought-provoking, emotionally and viscerally connected, and intellectually stimulating. Couldn't help thinking at times - given how the political climate is shifting around the world at this moment in our own history - if we, as humans, might not be learning from our past. Highly, highly recommended! If I could award this more than 5-stars, I definitely would!!

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.
