i am one of four who booked with Dan on an extended tour of Romania. Dan turned out to be the best part of almost a month in Eastern Europe and Romania. We had planned a River Cruise on the Danube between Budapest and Bucharest with another couple, and seeing the lack of value the cruises extension to Romania offered we looked into hiring a private guide. We found Dan through a report on the BBC website about Romania and decided to contact him. Dan responded quickly and spent much time crafting an itinerary for the four of us. . A little background. We are in our 60’s and not that much into hiking and although that seems to be Dan’s focus, but after much work by Dan he came up with an itinerary that was suitable for our needs. I can’t emphasis enough how much work he did and time he spent on creating our 13 day experience.
Dan is a great tour guide. He is funny (loves Seinfeld) and very knowledgeable of all things Romania. I was very apprehensive spending 13 days with someone completely at their mercy in such a foreign country but Dan completely alleviated those fears the first time I met him. Dan took care of everything. He arranged for guest houses, tours, and daily activities. Every guest house was comfortable and a good representation of local homes. We never had to even move our heavy suitcases Dan and his driver Adrian took care of us like we were royalty. I can not emphasis enough how much I enjoyed my time with Dan and the wonderful experiences he gave us. From meeting the hat maker to having plenty of Palinka to drink. If you want to have a great time in Romania Dan with Outdoor Activities is the company to go with.
