What people are saying about Bucharest

Great natural landscape

Had a very nice and informative driver / guide with Rasem. On the long drive (clear at the distance) he knew a lot about Romania. Upon arrival at the Danube, I looked for what I would like to have as a late lunch after returning from the boat tour (fish platter was a very good choice), then I went for 3 hours with a small (can go anywhere) motor boat and alone with the boat captain first on the Danube, then in Canals and later on various lakes before it went back. Magnificent landscape where you can only hear the birds. Many animals (including pelicans, herons, storks, turtles, water snakes and cormorants) have been seen. After the return, the food was ready after 5 minutes (perfectly timed), then eaten comfortably and back to Bucharest. In addition to the tour Peles, Bran and Brasov the tour outside Bucharest that I found best. Many thanks to Rasem for the great tour.

Awesome Great Guide!

Gabriel was wonderful!! So knowledgeable and friendly, was even great about our last minute changes we made. Danube Delta tour was ok-stayed at a really nice resort -great pool- but the boat tour was not the best. Would have liked an early morning tour to see more animals and a smaller boat for 2-4 people. When we booked we thought we would be on a more private boat tour organized by the agency but it was a larger boat tour (25 person boat) through the resort which we didn't love but the locals we were with were great! Our favorite part was our guide though!! He kept a steady stream of immense knowledge about all of Romania. Was do nice to hear the pride in his voice about his country .

Our driver from Bucharest to the Danube Delta area was very knowledgeable and made our long car ride pass very quickly. It was enjoyable learning more about the daily lives of Rumanians. The scenery was spectacular, as was the bird life.

All was planned for my utmost enjoyment .

my guide, Gabriel , was extremely knowledgable. He procured a small boat with a driver/naturalist who knew how to get the best views on the Danube. The accommodations were great.

Very enjoyable day, especially the boat trip near the delta

Very pleasant, informative guide; interesting sights of a variety of bird species at the delta; the pelicans were probably the highlight.
