What people are saying about Brasov

A really great experience. Experiencing the bears in the wild is really a highlight. Definitely recommended. We really should have asked more about how to behave when encountering a bear, because the next day we ran into a bear weighing about 100kg while hiking.

A super father experience. Better than I expected. Learning from wildlife specifically from bears is a very good thing. Visiting the Castle and knowing more about the history of Romania is great and Ramse was spectacular at all times.

A very good day out! Our tour guide, Mr Rasem, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about everything and he made this a fantastic experience for me and my partner.

Mr Rasem is very patient and kindly, also very knowledgeable about the local history and culture. We had a very memorable day.

Our guide Mr. Mihai has seemed very friendly and professional. Without a doubt, a highly recommended experience.
