I spent 4 days in Romania on a tour organised by Outdoor Activities in Romania with my girlfriend and her parents. From the moment we first made contact with Dan, it was clear that we were not dealing with an ordinary travel agency. Dan asked us questions to ascertain our interests and fitness levels and then put together a custom itinerary to suit us all. All our requests for amendments were met with good humour and expert advice.
On the ground, the experience was faultless and showed us the very best of Romania. Dan is an excellent and expert guide and his choices of what to do and where to stay cannot be faulted. His personality, charm and experience shone through at every stage.
Apart from Dan as our tour guide we were very lucky to have Adrian as our driver. Apart from being an excellent, professional and patient driver, Adrian was witty, helpful and good humoured, further enhancing our trip.
What really set this experience apart, however was Dan’s cheerful willingness to adapt the programme as we went along to reflect the group’s tastes and abilities. This could not have been further from the identikit tour itineraries I have experienced in the past.
We could never have seen so much of what Romania has to offer in such a short space of time without Dan’s expert input and flexibility. From talking to him it is clear that this is down to hours of preparation for each trip. The results of this dedication were clear to see. We were even lucky enough to see bears, which made the trip especially memorable!
This is a truly boutique product at a very reasonable price point. I would not hesitate to recommend a trip to Romania to all my friends and I would suggest they go with Outdoor Activities in Romania, even though I do not normally opt for organised tours.
Remarcabil, as they say in Romanian!0
