    Take a break from the ordinary and spend an extraordinary day exploring beautiful parts of Romania that you can only see with vehicles that can go ‘off road.’ The views are spectacular, and you also learn some history about this fascinating country. Marius’ team are professionals and they are dedicated to ensuring you have a unique and memorable experience. This was SO much FUN!

    “We had a 2 day trip and out guide was Marius. We were 11 people with 3 jeeps, we had a mix of ages (big kids 11-15, 5 adults 18-48 and 2 70+). All had an amazing time! We enjoyed the wonderful places Marius took us (Kenyons, Panoramic views, mountains, vallies, water and even a visit to a local farmer). Marius as a guide was very good, knowledgeable and very patient with all our requests. The coffee break spots were without words. The accommodations and meals were great and everybody finished the 2 days with a taste for much much more.

    Thank you Marius for the great time – this was the highlight of our trip to Romania!!”
