The Carpathian Mountains and citadels create the skyline playing host to Bran, the gothic fairy-tale castle associated with Prince Vlad Tepes.

Then see the Black Church, the Citadel of Brasov, Ecaterina's Gate, the White and Black Towers, the Bastions of many traditional craftsmen, and Rasnov Fortress. Enjoy an unmissable taste of Old Romania!

Marian took us on an invigorating hike with gorgeous views that photos do not do justice! It was just us two, and we are avid hikers, so he was able to take us on a longer hike as per our request. It was physically demanding but not too difficult or dangerous, and every few minutes the views just got more breath-taking. After 3 hours in the mountains, we descended into a quaint village in the valley, passing grazing cattle & sheep and smelling bonfires in the distance. We felt so refreshed and alive. We ate lunch at a guest house, and he was able to arrange our family-style lunch to be all vegetarian, and it was very hearty and filling! To finish, we had a long but easy walk back along country roads, and Marian told us about how his tours are designed to be eco-friendly and give back to the local villages, which we definitely appreciate. Afterwards, we were pretty tired but so grateful we had booked this tour. It exceeded our expectations and was the best day of our trip by far.

We were picked up punctually from the agreed meeting point. The rangers were very knowledgeable and nice. On the way to the hut we met a young bear. The rangers handled the situation professionally. We received information about the bears and the rangers answered any questions. The view from the hut is better than expected. We saw a lot of foxes. Just before we were about to leave, another bear appeared. Although the time was already over, we stayed until the bear disappeared into the deep forest. It was an unforgettable experience!

Our guide Ckaudio was excellent. Kind .. with very extensive knowledge. Responds to every request and question..recommended other things..and all with unusual comfort and ease

It was really superb! Our guide was really very nice, knowledgeable about bears, their environments and attentive! A superb experience! I recommend
