Dear Alex, Thank you for taking the time to review us.You did great on the tour, I am glad you and the kids enjoyed it.
The help that we received from Eniko was excellent. She connected us with the tour we wanted and with accommodations that were close by. The riding experience was exactly what I was looking for and the outfit was top notch. They took great care of their horses and their clients. The emails were responses and in English for us non Romanian types. I will definitely use their services again when I visit. 5 Stars!!!!
Dear John, thank you very much for your kind review and you are welcome back anytime in Transylvania and in the Carpathians.
All the best,
We contacted Carpathian Escapes before going to Transylvania looking for activities to fill up a three day stay in the area. Eniko got back to us quickly with recommendations and plans.
The first activity we did was a full day of horse riding in the Hasmas Mountains. Our english speaking guide, Istvan, met us and took us to the farm in the mountains where we started our ride. The horses were very well trained, and was matched to our experience levels (one experienced rider, two intermediate and one beginner). We had a fantastic ride up the mountain, riding along trails through meadows and old forests. When we came back to the farm we were treated to a fantastic home cooked meal before we left.
Our guide was very attentive and had a lot of information about the areas history and wildlife. You can really tell that Carpathian Escapes have a strong connection to the area.
The next day we were picked up by Istvan again. We were supposed to do a gorge walking trip, but due to the unseasonal rains the route that was planned wasn't the best option anymore, so instead we went for a canyoning trip far into the mountains. I think that we got lucky, because this trip was the best canyoning trip we have ever had. After a drive into a remote area (the last village we passed got electricity 10 years ago) and an almost two hour long hike we got to descend 15 waterfalls in a river canyon with our guides and another three person group. After the descent we hiked back to the cars and were treated to a rustic dinner in the meadows with ham, bread, cheese and tomatoes, before driving to sleep at a rural mansion that CE had recommended.
We rounded off the trip the day after with a mountain carting session.
We are very happy with the stay that CE arranged for us in Transylvania, and would recommend it very much!
Thank you very much for your detailed review, it is very much appreciated. You and your family are always welcome back in the Eastern Carpathians.
I went horseriding for 5 days through the Carpathian mountains. With great well taken care of horses we rode through the beautiful nature of Romania. The guide was very experienced and gave a great feeling of comfort. Really once in a lifetime experience, with raw untouched nature and ultimate freedom on the back of a horse!
Thank you for taking the time to review us! We are happy that you enjoyed your trail ride in the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania. You are always welcome back for anotther tour or another ride.
The tour was great and we where really alone at the bear hide. Our guide knows a lot about bears and took the time to give us our experience. We saw a big male bear. He didn't notice our presents. We loved it.
Many thanks for taking the time to share your experience with the rest of world travelers here. Thank you for choosing and trusting us for your private brown bear watching tour. We would love to have you back here to join our other tours.
