“This was undoubtedly one of the best trips I have ever been on. We saw so much in the two weeks which would have been much more difficult to do without an organised tour. Our tour leader Dane was exceptional -very knowledgeable and friendly. ”

“The 'Transylvanian Tales' tour was very enjoyable and interesting having a small group of 14 'travellers' made for good travelling companions. Dane Penstone our very knowledgeable and affable guide made the early starts and constant travelling bearable.”

“I thought this tour was a real surprise as the places we visited were so interesting and so much more than I ever expected....the only down side was the backpack and the fact that most of the accommodation is up many stairs and most without lifts..”

“Had a fantastic time. A great group of travel buddies. We were lucky to have mini vans for the Romanian leg of the tour...didn't mind catching trains and coaches but the local buses and metro's were a bit of an issue at peak hour.”
