Reviews from travellers
We really enjoyed Liviu! He was very personable, energetic and enthusiastic. Nera NP is not to be missed. It was an easy “hike” (more like a pleasant walk in the woods) and the “eye” is something you should not miss seeing if you’re in Romania. It’s like something out of a fairytale!
My trip to Nera-Beusnita National Park was a great day. My guide Liviu was passionate and knowledgeable about Timisoara and the Banat region. The booking process was easy as. I will definitely use Romanian Friend again.
It was an amazing tour! The nature was so beautiful and it was so much fun hiking in the forest. Liviu could always tell us interesting facts and knew a lot about the area. I will definitely go back again to the waterfalls!
The tour was very straightforward to book and everything was confirmed very quickly. We immediately received contact from our guide to explain the schedule and arrange pick up points. We had a wonderful day with Benjamin and learnt so much as he was very knowledgeable about the area and sensitive to what we preferred to do on the day, which was much appreciated. Excellent tour!
