Both was really nice, we eat with Simona and Vasile, the fisherman. The fish was fresh, really good and cooked traditionnally.The tour on the Danube was really... More

When I went to the Danube Delta in the second week of May, there were barely any tourists there. Also there were NO mosquitoes! Sadly, because of the lack of tourists, I could only make one "short" 5 hour boat trip into the delta, but it was still very nice and I saw a lot of birds. I used Safca... More

On a par with the Camargue and Coto Donana, but no better in my opinion. Tulcea is a bit of a dump and much bigger than I expected.The main channel of the Danube is basically a canal dug out by French engineers in the 19th century to straighten the meandering river. You have to get off the main track in... More

Great if you are a birder especially on a floating hotel for a few days,lots of birds i think we saw 150+ each day and we saw the rare Dalmation Pelican.the dislike was the cost of wine on the vessel was overpriced for poor quality,not really their fault as the best is exported,but 10E was 3e too much

If you want to get in touch with nature, to get into a natural and wild place, with a lot of wild life to see as well as a wide range of plants and flowers, that this is the place to be. The peacefulness of the place, the sounds and smell, the view and the remote and small canals will... More

We have been in a trip with this company a week ago in a 6-7 trip with traditional lunch included. They serving was great, good fish soup and grilled fish.

Living (in Bucharest) 250km away from this nature's wonder, allowed us to visit it quite frequently. Amazing sunsets, great sceneries regardless the time of year. Countless of bird species, pure wilderness, though safe. Available for all kind of budgets and expectations, from 5 stars hotels to camping. Better to plan and book in advance if is to come in August,... More

If you are in the area you must take a boat trip to the Danube Delta. It's spectacular. Tip: Bring antimoasquite spray.
