    As a tour leader of the group which took part in off-road trip with Marius I would like to recommend this company and this kind of visiting Romania. Everything was great, starting from the email contact with Mona before the trip, ending with a wonderful adventure on spot.

    8 of us in 4 – 4WD were led by our guide, Adi in his own 4-WD on a 15-day trip of Romania. We started from Bucharest to the Danube Delta to cities, towns and villages in Slanic Moldova and Transylvania and back to Bucharest. We drove through unspoilt n amazing sceneries. Some drives were rugged and very challenging but the views that greeted us at the end were stunning and well-worth the effort. We were even able to have a picnic lunch and coffee breaks, complete with table and chairs, freshly brewed coffee n food among those awesome surroundings. Without the 4-WD, we would have missed them all. 4×4 Tours provided impeccable service. Marius and Adi personally provided transfers from and to the airport – and we were all on different flights – one even arriving at 2am! Adi took very good care of the group acceding to our requests as much as he cld. It was indeed a thoroughly enjoyable n memorable trip. Well planned and executed. We would highly recommend 4×4 Tours for an out-of-the ordinary tour of Romania.

    “We love it when we come across a business that is just managed right and this one certainly qualifies. Right from the planning stage Marius meticulously planned our unguided 4wd camping/luxury experience throughout Romania. He ensured we were provided with high quality camping equipment, something we found was lacking in some of our other off road experiences in other countries and we wanted for nothing in what he provided. He tailored our experience to be flexible en route so we could linger in a region that we liked or sleep in and cut out a couple of spots. Marius also provided close phone support while we were on our journey even organizing a wifi router to help with our mapping and research. We travelled as 2 couples and found 2 people per car with camping gear and your own supplies are ideal for this type of adventure.

    Romania in itself is a beautiful country; the people are kind and scenery spectacular. Being Australian we are used to good wines but must say that Romanian wines are of such high quality you could just do a tour of the wine regions only and be satisfied. Camping is interesting, as you have to cautiously pick your places because of the high numbers of bears in the region but there are always top quality or budget accommodation options not too far away if you want to play it safe. We found that some camping spots were not as remote as we are used to in Australia so we opted to eat and drink by the fire down by the river and then purchase a room each in a Pension (hotel) for about 40 AUD. Oh and stay away from Bran castle, it’s a tourist trap.

    I would recommend this business to anyone who is looking for a different way to explore this amazing, yet undiscovered region of Europe. Marius well exceeded all our expectations and we commend him on a great operation and wish him all the best in helping others explore Romania. Well done mate!”

    Let me begin bottom line – MARVELOUS We traveled with 4X4-tours, with wonderful Marius. We have been 10 persons adults grownups and a child. It had been 8 days tour in April 2017. Marius had picked us up from the airport to the hotel at midnight. The day after, we started the off-road tour. Everything along the tour was excellent: Places we had been, views we had seen, roads we had gone through, guides, hotels accommodation, restaurants, and surprises… Marius successfully made every effort, above and beyond, to make the tour pleasant. He was attentive to our wishes. He sensed our feelings even we didn’t noticed he does. He didn’t leave us, and helped solving problems for us, though the tour is actually over. We had been in Brasov area, Sibiu, Apuseni Mountains, Cluj, Sighsoara, and Bucharest. We made our way self driving off-road routes through amazing views. None of us will ever forget this vacation. Highly recommended. all the best
