I was the only one who had signed up...

I was the only one who had signed up for this tour on this particular day, so it was more of a private tour. My tour guide was very nice and friendly, however, it was a rather long day of mostly being in the car. I would still recommend this tour for the experience of seeing the beautiful Romanian country side, the amazing drive through the Carpathian mountains on the Transfagarasan Road.
