Amazing! From the first moment in the morning until the end of the trip I felt super comfortable. I enjoyed in every single corner of the zone, the best local meal in town and I learned a lot about the history of the region and Romania. Thanks a lot

We had an amazing trip to Constanta. The city is very worth visiting and our tour guide Valerica was great at explaining the history of Romania. We very much recommend him and the trip.
