Chris McAlister, Sweden – Qigong Thematic Tour – september 2015

“Advisio is a reliable and professional tourist organisation of the highest calibre. Our group was met by confident and creative staff who took care of or every need. The tour we were given met our personal needs to a degree I had thought impossible. Not only this but the staff were flexible in their planning and could take into account our daily needs, and moods as well as shifts within the group. Our guides were knowledgeable about all aspects of Romanian language,history and culture, in particular the specialities of Maramures. They were also great fun to be with and could communicate on many levels from the intellectual to the emotional and were always ready for jokes, fun and laughter. I recommend them very highly.”

“Dear Alexandra,We can’t stop talking about Maramures. Part of my heart stayed there. My favorite experiences were the priest at the church in Rogoz, then everything related with Pensiunea Marioara (food, owner, and her). Also the Plesh museum and seeing the people walking out of church. Richard’s favorite thing was the water powered complex and the couple working there that gave himAn extensive tour and demonstration. All of this couldn’t have been possible without your help. Thanks for going above and beyond preparing and ensuring we followed the itinerary. I will be forever grateful. If you are ever traveling to the states let me know. Thanks!”

Alexandra & Cornelia were great guides. They both spoke fluent English and were very passionate and knowledgeable about the fascinating Maramures region. They worked out an itinerary for me based on basic requests of stuff I wanted to see and it really was a great experience in a very unique region of Europe. They made sure that the tour was balanced, including both famous and unique sights as well as emphasising the importance of village life and meeting the locals. Cornelia even made sure I got on the right bus when leaving the Maramures region and even jumped onto the ‘about to leave’ bus to give me supplies for the trip I had left in their car. Lovely people. Thoroughly recommended. Kind Regards

Subject: Maramures County
Location: Maramures County, Northwest Romania, Transylvania, Romania, Europe
Title: Gorgeous countryside and warm, friendly people

“I spent several days in Maramures in June of 2012. My trip was especially great, due to my stop on a whim at the tourist office in Baia Mare. Rada Pavel, with perfect English and a great sense of humor, connected me with a guide, Alexandra Nicolici, who took me to see the wooden churches and up to the Merry Cemetery. Alexandra made a special effort to tailor the afternoon to my interests, even taking me to the home of a woman involved in preserving traditional textiles. They also connected me with the Babou Maramures hostel, a renovated barn on a family home in a small town, with the former owner still living on the property, gardening and raising chickens. I was blown away by the beauty of the landscape and the culture. Maramures was the unexpected highlight of my trip to Western Romania.
