Testimonial from: Catherine, Sales Director – UK (June 2016)
Florin was an excellent guide, friendly and knowledgeable. He combined a great tour with some corporate locations that we needed to see. He was also super helpful after I fell over a bollard (!) and attended to my cuts and bruises. Very impressed and highly recommend.
Testimonial from: Daniel Frank, Nonprofit Executive – USA (May 2016)
I was in Bucharest on business for a conference and had only one free day to explore the sites. The conference organizer put me in touch with Florin to arrange a private tour of Bran and Peles Castles as well as Brasov. I had a limited amount of time and only wanted to visit to take some pictures. Florin was punctual, a knowledgable tour guide, and helped make the day trip completely worthwhile. In fact, he exceeded expectations — he went above and beyond, took some professional photos himself which he shared, and even led me a a brief walking tour through Bucharest when we got back to the city sooner than expected.
I offer Florin Arjocu my highest recommendation!
Testimonial from: Dominique and Marie Christine Valla, Professor of Medicine – France (May 2016)
Dear Florin, I wanted to tell you what enormous fun we had during this trip with you guiding us. We have been particularly touched by your kind relationship with all the people we met. We were have been fascinated by many of the things you drove us to. We wanted to approach somme essentials about Romania and, may be wrongly, we have the feeling that you did allow us to do it. Many many thanks.

Excellent tour in the authentic parts of Bucharest! I was deeply and pleasantly surprised even though it was so cold, but very sunny… It’s also great to walk in a part of the Tour. Florin, our guide is very professional, dynamic, knows very well how to transmit his knowledge. To resume: a very pleasant tour that you should do.

3. Testimonial from: Rui Mendonça Rodrigues, Medical Manager – Portugal (January 2016)
Very nice trip in Bucharest, well organized and sharing intersting informattion about all the places and monuments visited. At the end, they (n.r. Florin) send us a very complete photo reporting.
4. Testimonial from: Ms. Cynthia McDermott, USA (autumn 2015)
I have traveled all over Eastern Europe so am pretty savvy about what I want to see and do. But this trip we had our 97 year old father with us and that required more skill than I have. After interviewing several guides I found Florin. How incredibly lucky because he is a gem! He is extremely knowledgeable about the history, geography, the arts, architecture and food so we had an amazing time. He is also very generous with his time. For example we were in a small village near the Black Sea and needed a translator. I called him and he kindly helped us out when we were many miles outside Bucharest. I have had many guides in my travels and I can say with great enthusiasm that Florin is without a doubt the best I have worked with! Rick Steves should put him on his show!

5. Testimonial from: Ms. Luiza Popa, Romania (autumn 2015)
I met Florin Arjocu in a circuit throughout Romania that he co-organized this summer and I can say he is a true professional, always well documented and who knows how to maintain the attention of tourists through riddles and legends of the places visited. He has great knowledge of history and geography and is very open and enthusiastic to answer any questions and curiosities when needed. In what concerns his new project entitled „Bucharest.Guide”, he knows how to synthesize and highlight the most important aspects that characterize the city of Bucharest and he is keeping things simple so that anybody can have instant access to the main information. Furthermore, he is always ready to deliver any details whenever they are requested, he is well informed of all the events that take place in the city and highlights the small details that makes Bucharest a wonderful city to visit (as such, I consider Bucharest.Guide to be a good source of information for the persons living in this city as well). I am currently following Florin’s projects with curiosity and interest, as they are great opportunities to discover Romania and all its beautiful corners of history and nature.
6. Testimonial from: Stefania and Adrian Calugaru, Romania (autumn 2015)
We know Florin from a trip we had in the Maramures in 2015 and we can say that we discovered a land with beautiful seeing and interesting history. all these explained and showed by our guide, Florin. He helped us having a great time with stories about the local people or by giving us information about the surrounding areas which were not included in the trip, but which we know not to miss during our next visit. He’s a social person and very communicative which knows how to add a joke among the stories; he makes your trip a very pleasant one.
7. Testimonial from: Ms. Mihaela Cornea, Romania (summer 2015, summer 2014)
I had the pleasure of knowing Florin Arjocu some time ago during a trip to Maramures and I can say that he is an excellent guide (the best of those that I know). After that trip he was our guide in many other trips where he proved professionalism and passion; he always took care that all tourists feel great, he chose and highlighted all the landmarks and created a pleasant atmosphere during the entire trip. Along with Florin, you take part in a wonderful journey in Romania; he gives you the opportunity to meet people, to know places, customs, legends, historical and contemporary details that shape the image of the regions you visit and not only, even the whole country. Well documented, Florin provides interesting and fun information, that you do not easily find elsewhere; you will see him, whenever is possible, talking to local people to find new stories which he shares with you. I learned from him also many new and interesting information even about Bucharest, although I was born here. Moreover, the way he presents all these things is very pleasant – a true storyteller. But Florin is not only a great guide, he is also an exceptional man; it is a joy to spend time with him. I would choose Florin as a guide wherever I travel without hesitation.
8. Testimonial from: Andreea Georgescu, Romania (summer 2015, summer 2014)
Hello! I’m Andreea and I had the chance to meet the tour guide Florin – drumliber.ro & Bucharest.Guide in August 2014, on a trip to the Banat Region – The Danube Canyon, Romania. Although I had read some things about the places I was going to see, Florin, with his passion for his work/tourism, with good knowledge about the places we visited, with his optimism and good-mood, he did know what and how to show us (me and all the group) the beauty of the places and the essence of Romania, their history, evolution in time, all we wanted to hear about. Congratulations, Florin, for all you do as a tour guide, for your passion for Romania and your free spirit! I warmly recommend him for a Bucharest/Romania tour! All the best! *:)
9. Testimonial from: Florentina Nete, Romania (summer 2015)
In 2015 I planned a vacation through Romania, in Banat Region. It didn’t sound very exotic, but it was one of the regions of my country I knew very little about. I am a mountain enthusiast, so there I was on the way! Just before going, I got to know our tour guide: Florin Arjocu, a fantastic guy, a Banat born fellow (I was to find this later), a great young man, with a huge passion for both History and Geography. One that made those far away places with previous little relevance for me, become very interesting. “Now I got home”, he said at some point. “Home” was that place with black Pine trees on top of beautiful rocky mountains, with cold waters which can flow slow and meandering, but easily get speedy; the place where I have seen the most beautiful full moon. You are a true professional, Florin Arjocu! You made the time pass fast and we wish to have this experience again and again!
10. Testimonial from: Cristian Badea, Romania (summer 2015, autumn 2015)
My name is Cristian Badea and I had the pleasure to travel together with my wife, Ileana Drăgan, during 2 trips through Romania in the summer of 2015. Both of them were guided by Florin Arjocu. Having more than 44 years of intensive experience in the Tourism Industry, I can definitely say that Florin, although a quite young man, is a true professional. He knows how to easily be liked by the group, he is very well educated, brings lots of information about the visited places and enjoys creating connections to other tourist attractions or personalities, making the experience a lot more interesting. He is also eager to learn new things and enjoys receiving suggestions or details others are willing to share.
All the above created good connections with tourists and there is no wonder that many of the tourists in our group asked for more getaways having Florin as a tour guide. I wish you have lots of success and hopefully we will share many other trips, ’till you’ll be gray haired.
11. Testimonial from: Mr. Kerekes Gabor, Hungary (autumn 2015)
