5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

An excellent evening,very well organised and fascinating to see such creatures at comparatively close range although far enough for safetydespite the best efforts of a member of the party to remind us all that bears can climb trees! Cuspin the rangerhope I have spelt his name correctly! was a most knowledgeable guide and enhanced this bear watch immensely.This was intended to be the highlight of my holiday in Romania and did not disappoint! Also the driver who picked me up at the History Museum in Brazovfrom Active Travel Tours was most informative and professional. In short if going on holiday to Romania and Transylvania in particular, don't say you have been without going on the bear watching experience!! Neil

Really great evening watching bears and we saw plenty. Excellent English speaking guide who was really helpful and friendly.
We were driven to and from our villa and treated splendidly by everyone.
Definitely do this trip if you like nature.
Great trip but, remember you have to stay very quiet for two hours. Not for small children.

Great host, brindusa. Picked us up from hotel. Good intro on the wildlife. Short journey to the lodge where after an hour we saw a family of boar and 3 Beas who came to feed individually one after each other. Saw a large bird of prey but couldn't figure out what it was.

Well worth the experience

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

A brilliant and well-organised trip. We saw lots of bears, so we are predictably inclined to rate it highly, but the best event we did in Romania.

This was a great tour if you want to spend an evening in a beautiful forest with a good chance of seeing some bears! Our guide was very friendly and informative, it's only a short journey out of Brasov and then a nice walk through the forsest to the hide. It was very hot so we had to wait a little while for the Bears to appear but in the end we saw 3, one of which was a cub. We had a great evening.

We saw 6 different bears while feeding, including 2 cubs. This was a fun and safe activity, despite watching the bears from a quite close distance. If you want really close-up pictures, take a tele lens for your camera 300 mm. The ranger was knowledgeable, and the driver, Dan Negoescu, was great, too!
