    4.0 - Good

    The Transylvania Tale tour was fantastic. The destinations were all wonderful and the group was great (although it helped that it was a small group of only 6 people). Romania is one of the best places I've visited, but Bulgaria is also very beautiful. Even the 7-hour bus ride at the end to Istanbul didn't seem that long! The hotels were mostly very comfortable and in good locations. Some of the local drivers we had were questionable but the transport was smooth and comfortable.

      Your website was very simple to use. I was able to find exactly what I wanted and when I wanted my tour. The price was also a big factor in choosing your company. As I have done a Cosmos tour before, I knew it would be good value for the price.
