cornelica Hello! My name is Cornelia Lupsa. I am a licensed tour guide and travel consultant, speak fluent English and would like to WELCOME you very warmly to Maramures!
I was born in Baia Mare, Maramures County in September 1978, the oldest of three siblings. I am married and have a son. My parents also come from this beautiful part of Romania and as a child I spent several weeks of the summer holidays in the countryside every year. I am very grateful for the opportunity I had to enjoy the delights of that simple life: eating fresh, healthy food, participating in farmstead activities and learning to appreciate life from a different perspective.
I studied music at the Baia Mare School of Art and law at University. I worked for several years in my husband’s telecommunications company and then ran my own baby store. For as long as I can remember however, I have wanted to work as a tour guide, so I finally obtained my license several years ago and started working as a tour guide.
Working with people is a source of true inspiration for me and I feel enriched after each experience. I love to learn about their art, language, habits and lifestyle. They make me feel like a friend, not just a guide providing them with information – they learn from me about Romanian culture and I learn from them about their culture, which fills me with happiness and a deep sense of accomplishment.
So far I have worked with guests from Argentina – Patagonia, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Greece,Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, New Zeeland, Nederlands, Norway, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the UK, Uruguay, the USA and others.
My mission is to make your holiday here as enjoyable as possible. I am available to be your private guide on your trip and if necessary your driver. I can also arrange practical matters such as accommodation, airport transfers and restaurant reservations.
I am proud of my origins and would like to help Maramures achieve the recognition it truly deserves. I am sure that once you encounter our wonderful Maramures you will also fall in love with it!
