Hello everyone, 'salut'! My name is Diana and I am a professional tour guide. I have a BA English and French degree, over 10 years experience in teaching and translating. I have been working as a full-time tour guide since 2018, accompanying foreign and Romanian tourists across Romania and abroad. I live in Brasov and I am fond of the local history and culture. With me you will explore the city like a local, getting off the tourist-beaten tracks but without missing the main attractions, thus saving precious time and energy. I will show you the most interesting corners of the old town of Brasov, the best places to hang out as well as the finest pubs and restaurants. You will also have the opportunity to see some hidden gems that you will not find in any travel book.. Would you like to explore Brasov but you cannot join my tour or you want to do/see something particular? Just tell me about it and your wish will come true. In case you want to visit the region, I can also arrange some tours for you but you need to notify me in advance. I am looking forward to meeting you, Diana, Your guru and friend in Brasov :)

About the tour

Then this tour is exactly what you need: you will see the top emblematic places of Brasov, hear the legends of the city, discover interesting things about Brasov and Romania, find out about the best restaurants and pubs, the local attractions and much more.

The most exciting part of the tour is a walk on the alley at the foot of Tâmpa Mountain, for you to enjoy a great view of the picturestique city of Brasov and the snow.

BONUS: guided visit of the Black Church (entrance ticket not included)

IMPORTANT: It is a BOOKING-BASED tour.

For logistical reasons, please book the tour at least twelve hours before the tour starts.

My groups are small and intimitate so the sooner you save your place, the better...

If you are a large group, please warn me and the tour will run only for you (no additional cost). I have had very nice experiences with large families, including kids or large groups of students.

Please be kind to warn me if you cannot show up, you might be the only one who has booked the tour..

The tour starts at the fountain in the Council Square, the heart of the charming medieval Brasov where history harmoniously blends with modern style.

- The Council Square - the most popular place in Brasov with lots of nice cafes, restaurants and pubs

- Catherine Gate - the oldest medieval gate in Brasov, unique in Romania

- Schei Gate - a 9-century old triumphal arch

- the White and Black Tower (in the distance)

- The Weavers bastion (outside)- the best preserved part of Brasov's fortifications

- The alley at the foot of Mountain Tampa for a panoramic view

Do you know that Brasov was founded more than 800 years ago?

What dark secrets does medieval Brasov hide?

What about Count Dracula's legend and his connection with Brasov?

What was life like in Brasov and Romania during communism?

What is life like in Brasov nowadays?

Diana is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide who showed and explained a lot of Brasov. She helped us before, during and even after the tour!!

It was a small group tour, which was the best to enjoy a very customized tour (unlike the massive and famous one happening in the afternoon).

Her English is perfect and has plenty of experience, so would definitely recommend this to everyone visiting Brasov. Thanks Diana!

Thank you a lot, Mauricio! I am glad that I could help. Brașov is a wonderful city and I am happy to show everyone that it is more than the Council Square and the other top rated sights. And yes, the best way to explore the hidden corners of the city is with a small group. You are most welcome whenever you may decide to come back, to see the green forest.. Happy NYE and my best wishes for 2020! Feliz Año Nuevo!

Great experience! Diana is a very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable! Diane answered all our questions not only about the places visited but also about the region, the country, religion and various other subjects about Romania. She spoke very clear and understandable English. I liked that she is a local and could give good advice on places to eat. I would really recommend her to anyone wanting to do the tour. Please note I was under the impression that the tour was only being offered during certain dates in December but once you click the link you are able to book for more dates and times. Book this tour!!! Now :)
