Personal description
My name is Andrei Brebulet, and I have decided to open my own travel company because, in my years of experience as a tour guide, I have realized that many of my guests, coming from big groups (such as cruise ships or bus tours), always were searching for an easier, but more exclusive way to visit my great country. My travels through Romania have taken me to some unique places, offering some of the last places in Europe where one can admire natural beauty, time old traditions, while benefiting also from 4 star hotels and restaurants.
Professional description
I have vast experience in tours of Romania, in all regions of the country. During these years, I have assisted the Chinese prime minister and the American Secretary of Defense during their visits, acting as their personal interpreters. I have also assisted a film crew from the Croatian National Television in making a documentary of two regions of Romania (Moldavia and Bucovina). To this, some of my former guests have also recommended me to other travelers, and you can also find reviews about me and my services on Tripadvisor as well. You can also find great pictures of my country if you follow me on Facebook. Recently, in between my tours, I also write on a blog about Bucharest.

Looking forward to hearing from you and to spend a great vacation in this wonderful country named Romania.
