A Recent Review of this tour

We enjoyed this tour with our local guide Cosmin. It was much more than a woodpecker tour. We learnt about other creatures in the wild nd got to enjoy the breathtaking beauty of Brasov. Cosmin is knowledgeable and taught us about the plants...animals. We got to see a rare woodpecker and his keen eyes spotted a staff beetle and forest mice. As well we gained insight about the wild boars and deer. He was gracious and funny. It was invigorating and enjoyable experience.
