Great tour but with the unfortunate bad weather in the mountain. However the tour guide made everything he could to show me other places and he was very detailed and knowledgeable. Good english but at little bit pricey for what it was. The only minor complain was that it took me until the very last day to get this tour confirmed, so I was freaking out a bit. It ended up being good. Thank you and recommended!

I combined this tour with my longer 7 day tour and it was amazing! Affordable, not over the top, the guide was professional, kind, went my pace and gave me useful information about Romania with respect to history, culture and the surroundings. There is nothing like being at the top of the Carpathian Mountains!
