A nice, informative tour!

Angelina, our tour guide, picked us up from the hotel on time and we met Constanta with an American guest. We got a lot of background information and were accompanied by Angelina. In Mamaia we had free time and could go for a walk on the beach. Overall, it's a nice trip! Thank you very much, Angelina.

Beautiful discoveries, the visit on the Danube top, Constanta really to discover. The only downside was the choice of the hotel. André is an excellent guide, benevolent, discreet, very attentive. He is also a very good driver, careful and respectful. Which is rare in Romania! We recommend André +++

totally beautiful the 4h boat tour in the Danube Delta

I would recommend this excursion to everyone, because you don't see so many fascinating pelicans, cormorants and herons every day. The romantic passages through the forest are also unforgettable. Water lilies at their best

Our guide, Razvan, was very helpful and flexible to meet our needs. We opted to spend more time at the beach and less in Constanta, which worked out really well on a hot summer day.

Lovely trip from Bucharest to the Black Sea. Learned a lot from our guide Andre. Long ride but worth it
