We first planned to stay 3 days in the Fagaras Mountains part of a one week trip in Transylvania. We were looking for easy trekking as we traveled with our 2.5-years old daughter and my husband had to carry her (over 13 KG). I contacted Iulian via his web page and agreed with his advise to spend 3 days in Balea Lake region. As soon as we met with him, our daughter adopted him, which is the best sign! Iulian advised us “easy” tracks and help us a lot to climb the first day (he also carried part of our belongings). This day was just fantastic, nice weather, kind stop at a shepherd house tasting “illegal” cheese. The arrival at Balea Lake was magic. Iulian took us out late afternoon for a 2 hours walk to the other mountain side, to show us the trekking we would have the next day. This was a very good idea as next morning after a sunny breakfast the weather changed and we had strong rain. We decided to wait and had nice talks with Iulian on Romanian country, politic and social life. Around mid-day Iulian advised us to change our plan and to go back to Brasov one day earlier. This was really the best option.Iulian arranged the transport down and helped us to re-organise our plan (we re-booked the night in Brasov for one day earlier and spent one night in Sighisoara, which we did not regret). In Brasov the weather was nice and we had the possibility to do some trekking there. I hardly recommend to use Iulian’ guiding services, he knows the region very well, is open-minded, flexible and is able to arrange the right trip for any kind of people. You will not regret it! Do not hesitate to ask me for more information
