    4.0 - Good

    Trip review Considering the places we visited, it was an ambitious one. I believe Bucharest is a very interesting city, which deserved more than 3 hours visit. And on top of it, the guide tour, was a very mediocre one, he just gave us the minimum info, thank God I have researched it and I was able to take a free walking tour on my own... no comparison. Many of us were very disappointed to flight to Bucharest just to sleep one night and continue without having a real idea of how the city looks like. You should tell us to flight 2 or 3 days prior to star the tour to see this interesting place. The Welcoming dinner at the Hilton Hotel left much to be desired, the dried and tough peace of chicken was uneatable. The Braşov dinner and entertainment for EUR 53 was a rip off, the ribs were burnt, I had to return them, and they did not have more, so I had to wait about 30 minutes to eat after everybody was already finished their meal. I expected real Romanian delicacies because they are really nice, not what they served there. The music was average and no dancing was performed. The hotel in Veliko Tărnovo was Ok considering the area but the bench where they put my suitcase had 3 nails and my loggage was damaged. The shower drainage in The bathroom at the Sofia Hilton Hotel was overflowing and had a hard time taking shower.

  • Leslie3rd September 2018
    It is too bad there is no 6 or 8 star rating available. 5 isn't really good enough for TourRadar. This enterprise surpasses even the most stringent, high-bar criteria for excellence of customer service. These people are consistently, constantly, on top of your tour itinerary, where you are are in the process, your current status and your situation, they answer the phone on the 2nd or 3rd ring, I'M NOT KIDDING, nd when they pick up they already know who you are, what your tour and status is, and they instantly produce precise answers and solutions to your questions or problems in a matter of seconds. I don't know who the competition is for this outfit but my advice to them is, give up. Go find another line of business. You will never catch up with the platinum customer service these people provide.
