Hi! My name is Alexandra also known as the "girl with the red umbrella". As a professional tour guide and genealogy researcher, I offer my tailor made tours of Timisoara, Sherlock (ancestry) tours and research, and day trips to the countryside. History, trivia, architecture, tips & tricks, communist heritage, all in a nutshell for you to enjoy during your stay in Timisoara! Extras: I can help out with airport transfers and choosing the right means of transportation to fit your travel arrangements, thus avoiding on-arrival confusion; traditional meals, accommodation and souvenir recommendations, translation & interpretation, pub crawls and guaranteed laughs.
