This trip has exceeded my expectations due mostly to your thoughtful guidance and warmth. 

Thank you for sharing yout knowledge and passion about your wonderful country and for treating us like family. 

During my recent holiday to Moldova, I was lucky enough to have Miss Victoria Odobescu as a guide and driver on two occasions.  One day we went to Orheiul Vechi, and another to Soroca, the XV fort guarding the Dnistre river crossing.  Miss Odobescu speaks very good colloquial English, her range is wide and is a confident and safe driver.  Victoria, was exceptionally well-informed about the history, culture, and people of Moldova. In addition, she was very sensitive to my needs and wants. I highly recommend the services provided by Victoria Odobescu. I am sure she will have success in her career in Tourism. 

This is just a brief note to let you know how much my wife, 10-year old son and I enjoyed our 5-day trip through Transylvania last week with Ms. Victoria Odobescu as our tour guide. The trip was a wonderful experience - thanks largely to Ms. Odobescu's meticulous planning, organization, and creativity. 

We have been on many tours in the past, but this one was by far the most delightful and educational. We will remember it for a long time to come. Ms. Odobescu is a consummate professional and deserves to be recognized as such. I will certainly recommend your tour company to friends and family.
