    As seen on Tripadvisor: “Great Day with Adrian” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2014 Once you are in Adrian’s care you do not have to worry about anything. We had an awesome day with Adrian and true to his name … he is The Fixer! He can and will do everything possible to make your tour special. We mixed and matched our day to see the Salt Mine and Bucharest. He is very knowledgeable and eager to share Romania’s rich history and culture with you.

    As seen on Tripadvisor: “Excellent experience!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014 I just returned home from Europe. I was a mother-daughter trip with my 21-year-old, part of which included Romania. We had only a full day in Bucharest. Adrian Rusu. We could not have been luckier that we found him. Adrian is SO knowledgeable about history, about architecture and most importantly about people in general! I have arthritis in my back, which really slows my pace down, and which I can be uncomfortable about in slowing everyone’s pace. Adrian showed himself to be a very patient and caring person, even that after a short time he was already anticipating correctly when I needed to sit for a minute!! I never once was made to feel uncomfortable about my pace. On the contrary, Adrian had me (at 62) and my daughter (at 21) completely focused instead by the sites we were seeing and the stories that went along with them! I was there to see the country my dad grew up in and I must say we both came away with having had a wonderful experience, more knowledgeable about the country and at the same time such a nice time with Adrian. I will definitely call on Adrian again when I return next time with my husband. Visited August 2014 – Layne Dalfen Morris – Canada

    As seen on Tripadvisor: “Totally Recommend Their Tour” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014 I wanted a tour of Bucharest but didn’t find any canned tours that met my needs, until I found Adrian Rusu. He is extraordinarily knowledgeable and amiable, readily tailored an itinerary to match my interests, as well as being eager to showcase the best of the city. A guide is especially helpful if time is a factor. As Adrian drove throughout the city, magically finding parking spaces where few appeared to exist, I saw more, and with excellent explanations and information than I would have seen on my own. Plus, in places where English wasn’t spoken, he was also my translator. The Fixers made me a believer — you want to see a sprawling unfamiliar city, hire a great guide!
