Traveler to Romania, walking and culture

End of June offer the possibility to enjoy a tour through Transylvania, Maramures and Bucovina counties, Dracula castle, wooden churches and painted monasteries. It was a long tour, almost 2 weeks, and during those two weeks weather was quite challenging. From high temperatures in Bucegi mountain to zero Celsius and  snow up in Fagaras mountains, and good weather for walking in Maramures county, we had them all. Was a tour for those type of persons who are really interested to see as much they can during those two weeks, and they enjoyed. Of course, was not missing a lunch serverd on my grand mother house in Ucea de Sus village, and the visit to the village distillery.

Testimonials

Thanks for the photos. It took a few days to physically return to my time zone, but all is well now and I’ve labeled all my photos with a caption. Looking at the photos brought back both laughs and memories we had during our trip.
I had a fabulous time hiking and seeing the sights as well as meeting people in a new culture. Although we didn’t hike at Balea Lake, it still was one of my favorite experiences contending with hail, sleet, fog and snow at the end of June. Our passage on the twisting Transfagarasan Road up to Balea Lake could only be appreciated after stopping and looking back down the valley to see it. I’m glad we stopped for a photo before the fog set in. Your itinerary appeared to cover a huge area of Romania giving us a good feel of life in Romania, especially in the small villages. Maria and John in Botiza were so warm and hospitable with the best ever appetizer of bread with melted cheese inside. I can still taste it. Thanks for introducing us to Romania with the crazy side trip into Ukraine.
All my best,

I enjoyed our tour with you. The food and accommodations were wonderful. You were able to change your plans to meet the challenges of poor weather, and our wishes to change plans as we went. The area was beautiful, the climbs tested our resolve, and the history/geography lessons were enjoyable. I will not hesitate to use your services again,

Our trek through the Carpathian Mountains was outstanding in every way.  Going off the beaten path, hiking along ridgelines and down into villages provided so many rewarding vistas that you could never experience from the road.  The historic and cultural sites, including Peles Castle and Voronet Monastery were very interesting.  It was also wonderful to experience the people, food and culture by staying overnight at pensions in the towns where they were available.  In the beautiful small city of Brasov where we stayed in a hotel, you selected a perfect location along the main square.

Your overall itinerary, hiking the Bucegi and Fagaras mountains, visiting many cultural sites, walking the towns & villages, and enjoying local food, was beyond my expectations.  I know this reflects your experience and skill as a guide, your love of nature and of your beautiful country.  I will highly recommend your services.

draga iuliane, din nou mi de multumiri pentru frumoasele imagini care ma tin legat de romania si sa nu uit, amicii care mai sant amici!
intradevar vremea in ultimii ani este tare nesigura, la fel si pe aici, furtuni locale, cu grindina de zici ca acum te ia!
dar vorba ta , totul este bine cand se termina iar cu bine!
noi am fost sase zile la roma ( un vis de demult) am ramas coplesiti de ce am vazut si mereu cu intrebari la acei artisti si arhitecti care au realizat aceste minunatii!!
iti doresc pe mai departe vreme frumoasa si linistita , sanatate si voie buna fam, si sa auzim numai de bine.

Multumesc mult pentru imagini/link-uri. Turele facute sunt demne de invidiat.

Zilele trecute am facut si eu un periplu(organizat) la cetatile dacice din muntii Orastiei. Dealungul drumului dus-intors am putut vizita si alte obiective naturale,istorice si monahale.
Avem o tara cu “obiective” minunate, cu drumuri proaste si o organizare/promovare turistica deficitara.

Inca o data felicitari despre modul in care reusesti sa promovezi “plaiurile romanesti” unor turisti obisnuiti cu alte standarde.

Sanatate, mult succes si veme buna !

Cu stima,
Radu M.

excelent!
toate turele se pare ca au fost intr-adevar frumoase, iar oamenii ghidati,
ca sa zic asa, raman cu sufletul acolo, ceea ce nu-i putin deloc.
excelente fotografiile, arata ca-n povesti 🙂 la ale tale ma asteptam deja,
dar mi s-au parut impresionante si cele facute de Horia Marusca. da, si cele
facute de Mihai Constantenec sunt foarte interesante. voi aveti un adevarat
club foto acolo, ai pus precis o conditie ca nu poti sa faci parte din
echipa daca n-ai talent si chemare la fotografii :)))
multumesc mult!
bafta mai departe,
Michidutza
