I stead of the big boats with slow move and croweded atmosphere, i've chosen this yime the private boat. The came and took me directly from the hotels deck (at Nufaru village) and the tour was Splendid !! Worth every penny. Driver name was Ioan but he calls himself Nelo - ask for him!

The trip to Danube Delta is a must-see. At least once in a lifetime you should do a trip in Danube Delta. The lakes are quite and you can observe all kind of birds. Danube Delta is the nature at its most.

We finished our 3 week tour of Romania with 3 Days on a Safca Delta Tour with Ciprian as our captain/guide. We selected Ciprian as a result of previous TripAdvisor comments. We booked five months ahead of our visit and had Ciprian to ourselves for the three days. He arranged two nights accommodation at a very comfortable hotel in the... More

We have experienced the Danube Delta cruising during our visit to St. Gheorghe in late Sept this year as it was included in our Black Sea/Danube river cruise trip. The highlights of this delta cruising trip were birds watching particularly for pelicans and try to reach the Danube River 0 km benchmark meeting the Black Sea. It was really a... More

Tulcea is a great place to start a Danube delta cruise (ours was four hours and included a delicious meal made onbaord). We did not have the nicest of boats. Ours had leaking problems in the dining area. Fortunately they were able to keep things under control.

You really have to take a small boat tour to see the birds and animals in the narrow creeks. I was pleased to come across the father and son company Safca along the quay at Tulcea this morning. Even 'though I had not booked in advance, there was room for me to join the tour out into the Delta, we... More

What a fantastic place if you're a nature lover. Take a speedboat tour which allows you access to parts where the bigger boats don't go. Safca tours - a father and son operation - are extremely knowledgable about the Delta bird life. Walk along the waterfront to find their base. We enjoyed a traditional Romanian meal as part of our...

do not miss this place. very beautiful, with birds, trees and fresh air (it is this thing which you can breath in and you do not feel like you live in a vacuum cleaner). there is so much nature here, that if you want to box it all and send it to some modern western city, you would need to... More

This may just be the top place to go in Romania.... in general the nature in Romania far outweighs the historic attractions in the cities. It is near impossible to find anywhere in the world as much nature as is seen in the delta and some of the forests in Transylvania.

Everyone should visit this at least once in their lifetime. The tranquillity, the birds, the food, the plants make for a unique experience. My advice is to book a whole day. Don't pay more than 750 RON. Our best guide ever was Florin from Pelican tours. He is a biologist, ornithologist, ecologist and knows this inside out
