Just returned to Sacramento, California with great memories about my one week guided trip to the Delta of the Danube. Our guide was Iulian and from the moment we landed to the moment we left, everything was perfectly organized. Not only we had best of everything but it was organized in a such manner that everything was fun as well. While this was not my first trip to Delta, I can say without hesitation that this was the best! From accommodation to food to places to visit and to every single detail associated with the trip was totally perfect! … (>>>)
Have you ever experienced a perfect trip?? Well… I just did. From the beginning (arrival at Otopeni), throughout the entire Danube Delta, till the end (farewell lunch in Bucharest) = everything was just perfect. Iulian is the best organizer/guide one can have. Iulian and Ionut made us feel just like home (I’m still dreaming of the delicious fish dishes cooked by Nuti) and took us through almost all channels and lakes. Our amazed eyes got to see lots of flowers, beautiful waterlilies, birds, the Danube’s entrance in the Black Se… (>>>)
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… (>>>)
