Tudor is a great guide, we did everything in the schedule but without unnecessary rush. Even though I was alone the trip was not cancelled.
Many kudos !

Our guide Tudor was exceptional. Very interesting story, passionate and curious. It was a pleasure to be in the tour. In addition Tudor put some effort in choosing the hiking path that is not a classy touristic one, which I enjoyed a lot. Tour was well organized, safe and comfortable. We got water and local chocolate :) and felt very welcomed. Strongly recommended.

I had such a great time, our guide Tudor had heaps of knowledge and charisma and you could really see his passion for sharing his beautiful country with others. The tour took us to many different places which I wouldn’t of seen otherwise and it made the experience unique and fulfilling. I was also grateful for the hike to get the exercise and the view. The whole day ran really smoothly and we enjoyed all the locations without any pressures on time so it felt relaxed. Highly recommend!
