    There were 5 of us that wanted to go on a tour of Transylvania and the Carpathian Mountains to see what Romania was all about. We didn’t know much about the country, but knew the type of things we would want to see. Marius built a custom plan for us that could not have been more perfect. We wanted to be able to drive a vehicle as well, so Marius led the way with 2 passengers and then there were 3 of us in another vehicle that he provided. We spent the days driving around and taking pictures. We kept thinking that we had seen the best stuff, but then would be blown away the next day with even cooler things. Every night we stayed in fantastic hotels that Marius had arranged, with special meals at a lot of them and a very friendly welcome from the hosts. If you are going to Romania, or if you just want an adventure and are trying to decide where to go, I would definitely recommend this tour. I will never forget it. Make sure you ask him to take you to Little Peter’s cheese farm. That was some of the most fun we had. Organic, fresh made cheese, wine and blackberry brandy were all flowing.

    Bonjour Mr Marius Ciurea Je voulais vous exprimer ici ma gratitude pour l’extraordinaire voyage que vous nous avez organisé. Je vous avais demandé de l’authentique et nous en avons eu au-delà de nos espérances. Votre choix des chauffeurs du minibus, des lieux où nous avons logé et du parcours qui nous a permis de voir la Transylvanie “profonde” furent parfait. Plus parfaite encore était notre guide Elena qui nous a sans nul doute contribué à la grande réussite de ce voyage, par ses explications passionnantes, ses connaissances époustouflantes et sa gentillesse naturelle. Nous avons cru nous promener avec une copine que nous connaissions depuis toujours. En conclusion, nous avons été satisfaits de tout et même du prix. Il est certain que nous ferons à nouveau appel à vos services pour voir une autre partie de ce magnifique pays qu’est la Roumanie et de ses “succulents” habitants. Merci, merci et encore merci.
