How are you ? and How is Vlad ?
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for your hospitality and help during our visit to Romania.
Your knowledge of the history and current events, coupled with your bubbly and outgoing personality left us with a good feeling of the Romanian market.
Thanks you for your time and we hope to see you soon

My first visit to Romania, was made amazing and very memorable by Nico. She is very friendly and knowledgeable. Nothing was to much trouble for her, she is a lovely person, and now I call her a friend. I would recommend anyone to have a tour with her to make your trip worthwhile.

We had a great time and we appreciated all the info you gave us. We've been so busy lately that I have not yet uploaded my photos. As soon as I get them uploaded I'll send your way!
Greg and Olga Grishchenko – USA & Ukraine
Thanks for the pictures. We made it back to the US safely.
Olga and I also would like to thank you for wonderful trip to the town of Sighisoara and other sites. Your historical comments open our eyes on exciting Romanian history and made us go beyond widespread myths about real historical figures. We wish you the best of luck in what you are doing.
P.S. If you ever make it to the US give us a call. We live about 50 miles south of New York City.
All the Best,

On the 27th October we had a sightseeing tour through Sibiu with you as guide. I would like to say thank you for the great day. I learned a lot about Sibiu. You know how to explain History excitingly.

I was also lucky to get on a very short notice three nights at the lovely Pensiunea Chic. I asked the receptionist for advice on how to visit Sibiu.
Half an hour later she put me in contact cu Nicoleta Ocneriu.
She immediately customized for me a one day city tour that included everything I was interested to see and other things about which I knew very little or nothing.
And what a tour this was!
She is the epitome of an insider guide.
Starting with her last name Ocneriu - one that resides in or whose roots are in Ocna Sibiului - where the locals were mining for salt since the second century…
She also matched the description in the attached news clip.
She walked me through miles of streets and centuries of deep history, culture, and nature of this amazing city called Sibiu with which Nicoleta is deeply in love and knows how to show it.
Next day she had an activity she could not postpone - a surprise birthday party in mountains for one of her friends (she has many).
Because it happens to be a Saturday she asked her parents if they want to drive me on the Transalpine.
They agreed and the result was another day spent with lovely people with whom I felt I knew them forever.
They drove me through winding narrow roads through small picturesque villages and the beautiful nature on the way to the highest point and a little beyond of the breath taking Transalpine Road.
Of course they were taking turns on describing and telling interesting stories about the places we were driving by and when about to get hungry stopped on the riverside for a delicious picnic.
I will remember for long time this special traveling experience I owe Nicoleta.
BH&H! Sa fiti sanatosi si fericiti!

We thank you for your hospitality in Sibiu and the huge efforts you tried to please us. We all feel lucky for your presence there.

We hope to meet you in the future time maybe in Greece. We’ll keep in touch.
Many many thanks again from all of us and wish you an unforgettable summer!

I also want to tell you that the tour I took on Monday was not at all as good as your tour. The guide was quite grumpy and I did not really learn anything. I have told my Romanian friend who got married to recommend you as a guide to all her future guests that come to Sibiu!

I had the chance to go on a Tour with Nico - last minute trip. I had a blast, she did not only provided me with historical facts about the region and Dracula, but also she's a fun-powerhouse girl. I recommend to everyone to go on a tour with Nico. It is a life experience! I cannot wait to discover the region more and more!
Katharina with family, Dominican Republic
Thank you very much, for the tour and your beautiful email.
We must thank you and we enjoyed your company very much also.
Have a good day in Sighisoara and take good care.
We embrace you

Nicoleta is an up and coming tour guide, city and mountains. She has an amazing and pleasant personality; my students really liked her! Please consider her when you need to refer people for tours.
Our trip continues to go so well, thanks to enthusiastic people like you. I can't thank you enough!

Nicoleta makes you discover both touristic and less known features and of the area. I spent a wonderful time learning about history, geography, cultures and architectures of many villages and landmarks surrounding Sibiu. Nicoleta knows her business and she will make your day well worth it.
Thanks again !

language perfectionist and to people who prefer lively company to dry presentations of history!
I have been telling a lot of people how we enjoyed the trip thanks to you
Tim Heron – California
Thank you for being an excellent tour guide for our trips to Sibiu, Sighisoara, and points in between. Personally, I learned a lot about your beautiful country and its rich history. Your command of time, dates, and history was impressive.
Here are several photographs for your album.
All the best.
Andrzej Maćkowiak – Poland Group
Thank you for the photos - the group will be very happy to see them.
Your guiding was very good. In my opinion, the best guide is the one who is able to fit into time frames and speak in interesting way. You did both things perfect. So it was very nice to work with you and hope to see you in the future :).
On mountain trekking would be the best. But less possible ;).
Have a good evening
Andrew and Kay, USA
Thanks again for a wonderful day... we will do our best to get you a copy of the best photos including any of the black and white, if cross your fingers, they come out good 🙂
Andrew and Kay
Hope you had a good 2 days away with nice people. You will be very tired, I know.
I'm off on the 1pm bus, and am being met in Brasov. After 3 weeks I go with friends to the Delta for a few days and then I return to my "home" in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Stay in touch please. I want to hear where you have been and how happy you are.
See you next time in Sibiu,
We got to know so much history behind these places and its importance in past. And had so many beautiful view points to see and even so many memories to take back.
Thanks for the whole guided tour.
Brown Family, Arizona
We really enjoyed our trip with you Monday. Thanks so much
In the meantime David just got back from his tour to Bran. It went well and he really liked the taxi driver that you lined him up with.
If you have any pictures from Monday that turned out we'd love to get them.
Elder & Sora Brown
Thanks a lot for the nice and relaxing day yesterday .
I enjoyed the day, because Nicoleta was a really smart guide and person with good knowing of the surrounding and the people and history. We laugh a lot with the other tourist.
Especially a woman Guide for Woman would be a good opportunity.
Best regards, Konny
We really enjoyed our trip last Monday and we have had a lot of laughs for the jokes we made together in the car. How lucky can we be, everything ran perfectly! Hope you may have a lot of nice days like ours!
Thank you for the pictures, those were very nice.
The best regards

Michael, Linda and I are now back in Florida. We were a bit rushed leaving, so I did not have a chance until now to thank you for being our guide on Tuesday to Bran Castle and the monastery.
We really enjoyed our trip. Providing all of the details about the castle's history on the way there was a big help.
We enjoyed meeting you and thank you again for making a memorable day.
Shane Bankier, New Zeeland
We were sad to say good bye at the end of the day but hopefully we will be back in Romania again in the future.
Once again, thank you for everything!
All the best,
Shane & Gemma
Lisa & I had a great day with you & would definitely recommend you to our friends.
You gave us a great service & everything was very, very nice – our feedback to you is 100% positive!!
Paul & Lisa Harding, England
She was punctual, reliable and extremely committed. She was eager to show us as much as possible and had an extensive knowledge of her home region. She was also very flexible and was responsive to all our wishes. We really enjoyed this day and learn many interesting things. We would definitely book Nicoleta again and can highly recommend her.
Thanks for the great tour we had today to the Transylvanian fortified churches. Greetings from all Brigittes!
Sibiu is a tranquil treasure that everyone should visit. Nico was a brilliant tour guide and her immerse knowledge of the history, culture and topography of Romania was superb. She tailor made the tour based on my personality and flexibility. Nico, exposed the gem of Romania by touring and guiding me through the idyllic landscape and the glorious mountains of Sibiu. She also drove through the scenic forests right up to the peak of the world famous Transfagarasan highway. Nico has excellent communication skills and is empathetic to the clientele requirements. She has a keen eye to photography and is eager to support with finding photogenic spots. The trip to the world heritage sites included churches, mountains and monuments. This exposure was refreshing, breath-taking and memorable. Nico complementarily facilitated a half day walking of Sibiu which signposted the most spectacular view of the historic town.

We look forward to a return visit and further exploring the city as well as walking (this next time) in the Mountains.
