Would you be so kind to send me more details about your reservation! Why? Because only once for this season we experienced an issue: instead of 6 pm (not 4pm, as you wrote, by mistake I hope) my guide arrived at 7pm (the minibus had a technical problem and we had to replace it). We apologized at that moment and the clients understood the situation (thank you a lot for this)!
Fabulous Experience

An amazing opportunity to watch bears close up. Exceptionally well organised. Superb guide, Tiberius. The highlight of my trip to Romania. Worth every penny.

Our guide, Tiberias was brilliant. Knowledgeable, friendly, easy going. Time went quickly, saw a bear within 5 mins, foxes, then 3 more bears. Loved it. The rangers are doing a great job protecting the bear population.

We saw 4 bears, great, passionate guide Tiberius who speaks English well. The bear hide is also a comfortable place to stay for a few hours, not cold at all. Definitely advised if you want to watch wild bears from a safe distance but still close enough to photograph them.
Sustainable, comfortable and informative

Our guide (think his name was Tiberius) was very friendly and knowledgeable. Mostly out of luck, the two of us were the only ones on the tour, so we had a private experience. The pick up was on time, and the car was comfortable. Drive was about 30mins into the mountains, and we walked for about 15 minutes after that to get to the bear hide. The last part was up a relatively steep incline, so best for people who are relatively fit or have done average hikes before. The hide was comfortable (not sure about if touring in winter), with about 8 seats in front of the window. Depending on the size of the people, it might have been a squeeze if it was a full tour. You have to stay quiet and still for the whole time (1.5 - 2 hours) to not scare the bears, so maybe not best for young children. We saw local birds, bears, foxes, and an owl on the journey back. Feeding points are about 50m away, so binoculars are useful, but not vital. Throughout the watching, our guide told us a little bit about the bears and their activity, but not so much that we couldn't just quietly enjoy the bears. They monitor the bears diet as much as they can (but they are wild), and feed them a mix of their natural diet (berries, nuts, some meat etc). They are not just giving them as much nice food as possible to guarantee a sighting. We always felt safe on the tour, and our guide was happy to answer all our questions. We would definitely do this tour again if we came back!

I really recommend this trip. It is organised by people from the NGO that is responsible for the forest. We saw 5 bears, a great little expedition
