Awesome Great Guide!

Gabriel was wonderful!! So knowledgeable and friendly, was even great about our last minute changes we made. Danube Delta tour was ok-stayed at a really nice resort -great pool- but the boat tour was not the best. Would have liked an early morning tour to see more animals and a smaller boat for 2-4 people. When we booked we thought we would be on a more private boat tour organized by the agency but it was a larger boat tour (25 person boat) through the resort which we didn't love but the locals we were with were great! Our favorite part was our guide though!! He kept a steady stream of immense knowledge about all of Romania. Was do nice to hear the pride in his voice about his country .

Delightful guide. A great motorboat. Beautiful nature - a must for every ornithologist. Delicious lunch at a local restaurant in Latea. A pitcher of wine, an unforgettable fish soup, fresh fried fish and donuts. Really worth!

Magnificent and unique experience

A superb discovery of the Danube Delta fauna. A competent and attentive guide. Pick up at the hotel, very pleasant. Fast boat but not very comfortable, No roof, a little rudimentary given the fairly high price.

All was planned for my utmost enjoyment .

my guide, Gabriel , was extremely knowledgable. He procured a small boat with a driver/naturalist who knew how to get the best views on the Danube. The accommodations were great.

Great experience for the two of us with lots of birds

We were picked up on time by our guide at the hotel and were able to enjoy an exciting and relaxing day amidst the beauties of the Danube Delta.
