Reviews from travellers
We had such a great adventure with Alex exploring this creepy forest at night. Hoia Baciu Is such a unique forest, even more so at night. Luckily Alex knows the forest like the back of his hand. We highly recommend this tour! If your lucky enough to go on this adventure with Alex, ask him about the alien. 5/5, we're glad we found this on Romanian Friend!
We really enjoyed our tour. Communication with Alex was very good and all the information provided was really interesting. The Hoia Baciu forest is truly a special place. I will definitely recommend it to my friends who are interested in this sort of places.
Alex was really great. The night time tour of the forest was not only filled with interesting stories, but also had the eerie/spooky element I was expecting. Alex is really friendly, and clearly has a passion for guiding, so I'm glad I found him here!
Very nice and interesting experience, lots of folkstories and weird stuff!
Alex was an awesome tour guide! Very knowledgeable and friendly. His English was very good and he answered all the questions we had to the best of his ability. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes hiking and scary stuff!
We enjoyed an amazing day tour with Alex. What a skilled and thoughtful, knowledgeable guide Alex is! He gives much information, is very personable and at all times you know that he loves the forest and his profession as a tour guide. The information and insight Alex gave us exceeded our expectations by far and we would most highly recommend Alex to anyone wanting to visit the Hoia Baciu forest. Thank you Alex! Have a wonderful season with nice people! Vanessa and Roland from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Alex is a sincere and experienced tourguide that you will feel peaceful while walking with him in forest. We are lucky that the weather is really nice, full moon with no clouds, only the mysterious round area has snow, just amazing scene, very beautiful. If you come to Cluj, make sure not to miss this.
The whole trip was well organised and very easy to arrange. Whatever your views on the paranormal, the woods are a beautiful place to visit at night and it would not be possible without a local guide. I would recommend anyone visiting Cluj to give it a go!
Our guide was an environmental physisct by education, which made this trip so awesome! He explained the explainable in logical terms and told us about the unexplainable! He was amazing! We had a fantastic time and caught a lot more paranormal photos than I ever expected! Such a great tour, I love when science meets metaphysics, Hoia Baciu is the perfect storm!
The guide was very personable anf spoke wonderful English. He was passionate about the forest and its history. Would highly recommend. Without Romanian Friend I wouldn't have found this tour so I'm glad I booked, thanks!!
