A conversation with a Romanian taxi driver in London a few years ago put Romania on my travel radar. He enthusiastically described the beautiful scenery and many hiking options available in his home country. From the beginning of our correspondence with Iulian, he was prompt and efficient in dealing with our enquiries which gave us confidence in his professionalism. The outstanding feature of Iulian’s company is that it genuinely offers tours which are tailored to the specific needs of the group and the itinerary is flexibl… (>>>)
We are 4 Israeli Bikers who have been on two previous European Bike Trips. We have been riding for 15 years and have a lot of experience. But this last week exceeded it all by far. From the minute that we were met at the airport until the last drop off back at the airport, a week later, it was all about personal attention, responsibility and true caring that was displayed by our amazing guide Horia. Behind the scenes a lot was going on in the logistics department but up front it as all about great food,superb riding and a lot of fun. We truly learnt … (>>>)
Habitués des raids à ski nordique ou alpin sous (presque) toutes les latitudes, nous souhaitions cette fois explorer les Carpates roumaines. Nous n’en connaissions guère plus que les créatures fantastiques qui peuplent notre imaginaire collectif quand on évoque la Transylvanie.
Il nous fallait donc trouver un guide local. Nous avons découvert ton site, cher Iulian, et avons été séduits par le professionnalisme qui s’en dégageait. Après quelques échanges efficaces qui ont confirmé notre première impres… (>>>)
Ciao Iulian, grazie per la bellissima settimana (10-16 luglio 2016) che con gli altri amici del Club Alpino Italiano abbiamo trascorso con te in Transilvania. Luoghi meravigliosi, ospitalità cordiale e, specialmente, la tua ottima capacità di condurre il gruppo e di provvedere ad ogni nostra necessità, con una disponibilità e un’attenzione davvero eccezionali. Spero si possa combinare per qualche altra avventura insieme, ancora sui Carpazi o magari sul delta del Danubio. A presto dunque, buona montagna e buona vi… (>>>)
4 jours de ski de randonnée en mars 2017 avec Iulian Cozma ont été une expérience merveilleuse. Iulian est un vrai pro que ce soit pour la logistique (transports, hôtels, refuges en montagne) mais aussi dans son métier de guide de montagne : Iulian connait ses montagnes et il connait la neige. C’est aussi un joyeux compagnon qui étonne par la connaissance de son pays et l’affection qu’il lui porte. A refaire absolument avec Iulian !

Grazie di cuore delle foto che giro a tutti gli altri, la vacanza è stata bella ed è piaciuta tanto a tutti. Ti ringrazio ancora tantissimo e di cuore per la splendida ospitalità e la disponibilità che ci hai dimostrato, siamo rimasti tutti colpiti da quella bella terra e dalle sue ricchezze. Speriamo di tornare presto a trovarti nella tua bella Romania e di vedere altri posti belli. Un abbraccio forte e buona vita a te! Lorenza, CAI Mirano Italy, July 2016 – photos here… (>>>)
We were a group of 6 friends from Luxembourg that originally were very reluctant to go hiking in Roumania. But thanks to Julian, our guide, we finally had a wonderful time in the Carpathians Mountains. Julian went out of his way to please us with our different needs. He was flexible enough with any change of program and destination. Thanks to him, with his perfect knowledge of the country, we were able to fully admire the country-side, in all its beauty. Not only were we pleasantly surprised by the landscape, b… (>>>)
Hello Iulian. Just a short note to say how much I enjoyed my time in Romania, and especially on the Fagaras Trail with you and Jon. Thank you very much for guiding us so well. You struck the important balance between making our trek enjoyable, challenging and safe. The walking tested my fitness and my kit and we certainly experienced a full range of changeable weather conditions! A sense of humour, in-depth local knowledge, and an awareness of what is safe in the conditions are all important on the mountains and you demonstrated all of the… (>>>)
Thank you Horia and Iulian for two awesome days in Brasov and Piatra Craiului National Park! When I arrived in Rumania with my car and my bike the only thing I was sure about was that I want to explore some parts of the Carpathians. After a challenging experience on my own I decided on Monday afternoon to ask Iulian to guide me for the next two days: Thursday and Wednesday. I was very lucky! Iulian and Horia made it very spontaneously possible to ride some excellent trails and to have two outstanding days around Brasov! Horia was choosing perf… (>>>)
I would highly recommend this company. Iulian provided for us a personalised itinerary of hiking through the Transylvanian mountains and villages. The scenery was picturesque and the tour was very well organised and run. Thanks again Iulian!
