If you don’t speak Romanian hire Ciprian
Reviewed on TripAdvisor on June 3, 2015 by woffordwise from Washington DC, District of Columbia We hired Ciprian (Chip) to give us a guided tour of the painted monasteries in Bucovina and the wooden churches of Maramures. Ciprian picked us up from our pensiune and treated us to breakfast at his favorite cafe in Suceava (the name escapes me, but it was pretty good) and talked to us to get a better feel for what we wanted to see. He clearly listened and we departed for the tour.
