  • This trip was awesome! Mihai was an excellent guide - his passion for nature and the environment really came through and made us appreciate the incredible beauty of the areas we visited and hiked through even more. We saw some amazing scenery and learned a lot about the area from Mihai. We're so glad we took this tour and I can't recommend it highly enough. Thanks Mihai! :

  • I had a great trip with Cristian who was great company and knew the area very well. The walk was paced just right among some beautiful scenery. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to get out and see the countryside around Brasov.
