We went on a 3 day hike with Iulian to Moldoveanu Peak in September 2021 and we had the best time! Lots of fun conversation and laughs. Iulian is very knowledgeable and has lots of interesting stories. We also felt incredibly safe with Iulian. He is very experienced and we had every confidence that he would get us to the top of Moldoveanu Peak! He was very organised and made the 3 day hiking experience incredibly easy for us….well as easy as climbing a 2544m mountain can be! It rained very heavily on the first day and Iulian was amazing at ensur… (>>>)

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. And the food! That was all such a treat. Thanks for all the effort you put into making it such a spectacular trip for all of us, for keeping that dog away from us, for the debates about heating, Brexit and Cecil Rhodes, for ensuring that Nick stayed warm (and stylish) and for generally looking after … (>>>)

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 … (>>>)
Hi Iulian, Back in Australia now after my European sojourn and a bit sadden to read the news about the unrest in Bucharest. I hope something positive comes from it all.
I want to thank you for not only organizing our tour but guiding it. After 40 odd of years of walking either solo, guiding or occasionally being guided, I guess I know a bit about what makes a good guide and I have to say you are one of the best I have come across.
Your attention to detail, organizational and leadership skills and ability to connect to us “oldies” ensured we had a te… (>>>)
We were visiting Romania with work, and bringing customers with us we wanted to do something on two days we had spare with our group of six. I rarely use a guide, but due to the timescale and wanting everything to go smoothly I found Iulian to assist. From the outset he was a true professional, and through emails back and forth we had a plan, and he’d arranged transfers from our hotel to the start of the walk. The night prior to our trip Iulian contacted me to say that 30cm of snow had fallen on the area of our planned route, and he suggested a… (>>>)
Grazie mille a voi per la perfetta organizzazione: era veramente difficile riuscire a modificare in tempo reale il programma di un viaggio funestato dal maltempo, ma voi ci siete riusciti. E grazie alla splendida guida Horia, che ha trasformato ogni problema in un fatto positivo!

Se si amano natura e cultura, la Transilvania è la metà perfetta! E grazie all’eccellente organizzazione di Iulian e alla ottima guida di Horia ne abbiamo potuto apprezzare tutta la sua bellezza. Il nostro viaggio prevedeva due giorni di trekking nei monti Bucegi seguiti da cinque giorni di traversata nei selvaggi monti Fagaras. Un itinerario meraviglioso che attraversa boschi da fiaba e arriva fino ai paesaggi d’alta montagna. Purtroppo il maltempo non ci ha permesso di coprire tutta la traversata ma Iulian e Horia hanno saputo s… (>>>)
Thanks Iulian for this great trip! We had two fantastic days in the Fagaras mountains, and your expertise, knowledge and thoughtfulness added a lot to our fabulous experience. You set us up for a great challenge, that tested our stamina, but what a great tour we had with you and Nic 🙂 I highly recommend you for others seeking adventures in the Romanian mountains.

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 Eu… (>>>)
