Me and my husband didn’t feel very well on the day of the trip, but Andrei made sure he made our day brilliant. He has a lot of knowledge, and so happy to share with us his knowledge. Is worth for the money you pay to have a private car take you everywhere around. Highly recommended to choose this trip with Andrei. Thank you so much for the wonderful time we had in Romania!

Absolutely fantastic all round experience!

One of the best tours we have ever been on. Everything ran smoothly and we had a fantastic guide who was very informative, and friendly. The driver was also very helpful and would stop whenever we wanted photos. Overall we seen some breathtaking views, tasted quality local food and would recommend booking this tour 100%.

It was a pretty awesome day with my very so knowledgeable and professional guide Alex. Alex was great explaining the history and culture of the visited places and the most memorable thing was spotting brown bears 11 times and enjoying a Romanian lunch after reaching the summit

Adrian was a great host and had lots of knowledge to share. Made sure I was comfortable and enjoying the experience the whole day. Would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see more of this beautiful country.

Great day with a very nice guide who adapts the day according to our wishes! Incredible landscapes! To recommend without hesitation!
