CARPATHIAN CULTURE AND WILDLIFE

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

There were many moments, but I will always remember seeing the bears when we walking to the bear hide.  Three bears were coming down the hill towards the hide and I didn't know whether to be worried or not!  It was also very interesting to see the way the shepherds still lived the way they have for generations.  The scenery was spectacular and provided many 'Heidi' moments!

What did you think of your group leader?

Cosmin was a brilliant guide.  He was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions.  He even found us a tearoom when we least expected it!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

We found the walking fairly challenging at times, especially as the weather was very hot.  However, it was well worth the effort.  Just don't believe Katerina or Cosmin when they say you are 'almost there', there is still a long way to go!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I would certainly recommend this holiday.  The guest house was perfect, as was the food. We had a good group of people - what more could we want!
