Daniel is fascinated by the 4 faces of Romania: medieval, communist, rural and nature and enjoys sharing them with travelers. He likes the off the beaten track experiences, while also being very knowledgeable of history, main tourist sights and social and cultural issues.
Before working as a tour guide he worked on youth development within AIESEC, as well as community affairs and corporate social responsibility for Microsoft. He lived and worked in Brussels, Warsaw, Istanbul and Cairo and travelled to another 30 countries on 4 continents. Daniel studied Management and Sustainable Development and speaks English and bits of all the Latin languages. In 2010, he decided travel should be his way of life, returned home to Romania and founded Via Transylvania Tours.
He is also involved in sustainable rural development projects and actively promotes responsible travel in Romania.

"Daniel had tailor-made a ten-day tour of the Maramures and Bucovina area. The tour would include highlight visits to many UNESCO wooden churches, a steam train ride into the picturesque Vaser Valley, the painted monasteries of Bucovina plus excellent accommodations. Many very special opportunities arose through Daniel's slick planning, one a traditional wedding and another a sheep milk measurement traditional event.
Again thanks for a fantastic time and it will most certainly be one of our all time outstanding tour adventures. Bar none! It did feel like family and a strong bond in such a brief time frame. Wow!" John and Doreen from Vancouver, Canada

"We feel obliged to express our deep appreciation for the wonderful service that Daniel gave us, relentlessly all along the 12 days, from Sept. 16th thru Sept. 27th 2012.
Daniel was both a terrific tour guide as well as a very pleasant companion, presenting an exciting as well as interesting picture of Romania, which really created a taste of more. He is an excellent driver, which always gave us a strong feeling of a fully trustworthy individual.
Daniel made us fall in love with Romania, through introducing us to Romanian history, old sites, history, meeting Romanian families and craftsmen, exciting sites and landscapes, and more." Mike and Shoshy from Israel
