What people are saying about Brasov

We were picked up punctually from the agreed meeting point. The rangers were very knowledgeable and nice. On the way to the hut we met a young bear. The rangers handled the situation professionally. We received information about the bears and the rangers answered any questions. The view from the hut is better than expected. We saw a lot of foxes. Just before we were about to leave, another bear appeared. Although the time was already over, we stayed until the bear disappeared into the deep forest. It was an unforgettable experience!

We enjoyed our tour to Peles castle , Bran castle and Rasnov fortress with Traian immensely, so much so that we took two further tours with him to watch Brown bears in the wild in the evening, and to visit the Saxon towns and Sighisoara the next day. Traian was brilliant. - he got us straight past the huge queues for Peles and Bran castles, and took us to excellent little restaurants for lunch. Brasov, and our tours with Traian ended up being one of the absolute highlights of our trip through Eastern Europe

Claudio was a great guide - friendly, very informative, accommodating. If you want to do 2 castles, 1 monastery and a fortress in a day without being knackered and stuck in ticket queues, I would recommend this tour!

Amazing activity, we saw 2 male bears and a fox. They were honest and they warn us that it was possible to see nothing. I'm very glad we didn't cancel the tour.

It was really superb! Our guide was really very nice, knowledgeable about bears, their environments and attentive! A superb experience! I recommend
