Testimonials – words from our guests

Jocki from Gemany, hiking in Bucegi mountains!The best advertisement is a happy customer, and we have a continuously growing list of the kind.

We are guiding people in the Romanian mountains since 1999 – be it for hiking, trekking, mountaineering, ski-touring and freeride skiing, and – in the more recent years – mountain biking. All in all they were a few good hundreds, and some  of them were kind enough to write testimonials about their experiences in Romania. You can read their words and thoughts in this section of the website.

Follow the links below to see the full archive of testimonials, or the archives for testimonials by activities with samples from the most recent ones.

But we are full of memories of Romania and the wonderful time we had, so expertly guided by you.  I’d seen the photos but hadn’t appreciated the big skies and enormous trees: those are the two images that have really stuck with me… (>>>)

חזרנו זה עתה, קבוצה של 20 אנשים, לא צעירים במיוחד, אבל מלאי התלהבות ורצון להכיר את רומניה. עבור אללה שכבר ביקרו כאן, בחרנו הפעם מסלול פחות תיירותי שכלל את השפך של דנובה והאזור הצפון- מזרחי של רומניה ( בוקובינה ומולדביה). זאת הייתה משימה לא קלה : … (>>>)

For all the mountain lovers from everywhere in the world: you can trust Iulian and his team-mates to make you live an unforgettable experience in Romanian Carpates. Me, and 9 of my French friends, asked to Iulian a 1 day hiking tour in snowshoes. His knowledge of the mountain and his good feeling with people made us having a perfect day. He knows how to adapt the route to the fitness level of the participants. He succeed to delight the most sporty people of the group, but in the same time the less trained from us. The contact and the reactivity to plan the tour was perfect. The material that we rent was good also. And small extra: he made very nice pictures during the day to make it really unforgettable. So once again, from me and my friends, thank you Iulian!

חזרנו זה עתה, קבוצה של 20 אנשים, לא צעירים במיוחד, אבל מלאי התלהבות ורצון להכיר את רומניה. עבור אללה שכבר ביקרו כאן, בחרנו הפעם מסלול פחות תיירותי שכלל את השפך של דנובה והאזור הצפון- מזרחי של רומניה ( בוקובינה ומולדביה). זאת הייתה משימה לא קלה : 2 אזורים מרוחקים זה מזה ומאוד שונים מכל בחינה שהיא.
לא קל למצוא מדריך או מורה דרך שיקח על עצמו משימה מסוג זה, אבל בעזרתו של יוליאן ושל הוריה, הדבר תפס עור וגידים ויצאנו לדרך.
זכינו בגדול בנופים מדהימים, מקומות לינה חלומיים, אוכל אגדתי, מזג אוויר נפלא. בקיצור חוויה של פעם בחיים.
יאמר לזכותו של יוליאן שארגן את כל התוכנית הלא פשוטה ללא דופי שטיול כזה אתגרי : האוטובוס שהסיע אותנו, הסירות שחיכו, הכלי רכב החילופי, הגשת הארוחות במקומות שונים, הכל עבד בצורה מושלמת.
על כל אללה נגיד תודה גדולה ליוליאן, בתקווה שזו לא תהיה פעם האחרונה שמטייל בארץ נפלאה זאת.
