I booked two tours with wild romania, a nature walk and a bear watching tour. I was a little apprehensive about doing these alone as I am a solo female traveller, however my experience has been amazing and very safe. Although I was unlucky and did not see much wildlife on the nature tour, the hike itself was beautiful and Im glad I did it, although please bear in mind that parts of the hike were quite challenging and hiking boots and warm clothing is a must. The bear watching tour was fantastic, I spotted three bears within an hour of being there at about 25 meters away. It was truely brilliant, I highly recommend.

We booked the tour the same day, communication was very clear. Grig was very knowledgable and experienced. When we arrived at the lookout spot, there were already 4 bears present (a female with 3 cubs). We saw the 3 cubs climb high in a tree. Later we saw 2 other males. So all in all, an amazing experience!

Absolutely ones of the most amazing experiences of my life. Can’t believe we saw some bears and in the snow too!! Greg was brilliant, so patient and took great care of us. The drama of walking through the Forrest through the snow and then back in dark was the best.. Thank you so much ❤️

We were extremely disappointed with the short bear-watching experience.

I will admit that we booked the tour very last-minute (same day), but as there were positive reviews from others who had done this we assumed it was a professional organisation that could quickly mobilise.

We unfortunately did not see any bears, but this was not the problem as we fully understand it is not a guarantee - especially at the end of their season.

The issue is that we were left to sit in the dirt on the forest floor, alone, for the majority of the time. Our guide was else where, and gave no explanation for why we could not enter the hide/cabin to watch for the bears. When he was with us, the only thing he did was show us a few videos of previous groups who saw bears.

When it was getting cold, he invited us to sit with him lower in the valley where you would normally be able to see the bears. However, we were only there for 5 minutes before he ushered us away and tucked us in a hidden dip. I do not believe this was because of the presence of a bear, but because of people. Immediately before, I heard a car pull up nearby and a door slam. I also did not see him reach for the bear spray. This makes me think we were hiding from the real owners of the hide, and that we were there “unofficially”

There are also ways to make a trip like this interesting even if you do not get to see any bears. However, he only mentioned a few facts in the car journey and pointed out a bear print or two. I noticed we walked past a few scats, but he never pointed these out.

I would strongly recommend going with another company. I know some organisations like Romanian friend offer you the option to join a second tour if you do not see any bears on your trip. These were our first choice, but unfortunately they did not have availability.

Do not waste your money here. If you want to sit on the side of the mountain in some dirt for 4 hours getting cold, you can sit on Tampa mountain for free.

We really enjoyed this tour. It was easy to book, they gave us 2 meeting points depending if we had or hadn’t a car and the best thing, we saw 2 bears!
The tour guy, Greg, he was really knowledgeable of the forest and where to find the bears. He made us feel safe at all times.

Really lovely tour in nature with a fantastic guide. We saw 5 bears- absolurelly beautiful.

Easy and punctual pick up from brasov and Gregg was friendly and had lots of information. Also recommended other things to do in the area which were fantastic.

It was just me and my friend so no big groups. It involves trekking the forest (no sitting in a hide!)
