Explore Romania, Danube Delta, Dobrogea and Maramures county

We returned for our second consecutive summer in Romania visiting the Danube Delta and also the Maramures region in the north. It was the perfect combination of bird-watching and hiking.
Iulian’s local knowledge is extensive and his enthusiasm for local food and culture is contagious.
The accommodation provided involved a variety of quality hotels and homestays and we will always remember the hospitality of Ion and Maria in Botiza. Botiza provided us with the opportunity to witness the last surviving peasant culture in Europe, which appears to be thriving.
The hikes gave us glimpses of the bucolic charms of the Romanian countryside with grassy meadows full of wildflowers and rolling vistas. Birdwatching was also a first for most of our group and was another highlight of the trip.
Iulian also enlists local guides who are similarly infected with an enthusiasm for wildlife, history and people.
Iulian genuinely attempts to tailor his tours to the specific demands of each tour group and on both trips, he was always flexible and responsive to our needs.
It seems that in Europe now, many travel destinations are inundated with tourists during the summer season. Romania is still flying under the tourist radar and it is a pleasure to travel to this exceptional destination.
