Adriana es una verdadera apasionada de la historia y pone mucho empeño en ofrecer una visión objetiva de la información. El tour ofrece una perspectiva única de la ciudad y de la historia de Rumanía. Es además un excelente complemento para aquellos que hayan visitado o planeen visitar otras ciudades y monumentos. Adriana es además muy flexible y va mucho más allá de lo usual. Fue un privilegio compartir varias horas con ella. Por eso, no solo recomiendo con ahínco su recorrido sino que animo a remunerar dignamente su trabajo. Como diría el poeta nacional de Cuba José Martí: “honrar, honra”.
