it doesn't get any better

for a rating it is always helpful if you can say what could be optimized. However, I actually have nothing to do with it. Both the process at GYG and the implementation by the organizer have been extremely professional. A normal constitution suitable for everyday use is sufficient. Our trip was adjusted to the conditions such as weather, personal wishes, transfer, so that an optimal experience was possible and each of us could find his personal highlight.

Excellent experience. Our evening walk with our guide through Sighisoara was fantastic. It was only our family and our guide did very well making this child-friendly and enjoyable for all. We received a very informative history of the town and the timing meant we had practically the whole citadel to ourselves.
