Amie and Gav, September 2014

We are back from our Romanian trip and had an amazing time. The whole tour was fab from dealing with James at the booking stage to the guides helpfulness and knowledge of the area. I am sure you are aware already but Marius is an excellent guide along with Cosmin the Ranger and they went above and beyond to make our trip special. The hotels were also lovely and situated perfectly. Keep up the good work
