The 'Wilderness of Buzau' bike tour was a real highlight for us. If you want to get an idea of what life is really like in rural Romania, 'Cycling Romania' provides the best experience ever. Mircea is a great comunicator, a supportive and encouraging guide, and has a real knowledge and passion for Romania and traditional ways of life. We met wonderful local artisans and craftspeople, and rode to places we never would have discovered otherwise. The hospitality of everyone we met was awesome. This has been an experience we will never forget.

Although it was the first time in 12 years that i got on a bike and was a bit nervous it turned to be one great week end. The guide, Iulian, understood that we were not bikers and kept the pace at a comfortable level for us. He is also very passionate about Romania and one can feel that from the stories that he tells. The surroundings are wonderful and the accommodation very good and quiet, perfect after a day of biking. We enjoyed the wine tasting and the home cooked meals. All in all this is a not-to-be-missed experience by both tourists and Romanians!

Taking a cycling trip with Mircea allows you see some of the best kept secrets of Romania. With his expansive knowledge about local culture and tradition, visiting towns/monasteries/vineyards never gets boring. Also, you can get a real cycling workout if you really want to, or you can do it all with leisure. My husband enjoyed a well paved 10-12% grade road, while others took a leisurely route instead. From pavement to dirt trails, Mircea's cycling options will keep all abilities entertained. Food and accommodations were top rate too. I highly recommend his tours.

Cycling in Romania is not to be missed!! It was the highlight of our trip and loved the wild countryside and adventure. Best thing I could have done there hands down. I recommend this to anyone looking to have the trip of a lifetime.

I didn't expect much before the trip but it resulted that it was one of the highlights in my European trip!
Mircea is an excellent guide and has great love and passion for his country Romania. He showed us a lot of great places with stunning views in the area nearby Ploiesti. We cycled in the forest, visited vineyards and some monasteries, tasted some very good wine, tried the best Romanian traditional cuisine and we stayed in a pension which is very clean and tidy and has amazing views overlooking the vineyards.
I am a beginner in long-way cycling but Mircea tailor-made the route according to our level and capability. It is very flexible and relaxing. His friend Iulian was a great guide as well and he took good care of us and took a lot of beautiful photos for us in the trip. We spent 3 days with Mircea and Iulian and they have introduced so much about Romania, in terms of history, culture and current social situation, of the country to us.
The cycling trip was a highlight of my Romanian trip and Mircea also gave us some good tips on touring in other cities of Romania which made our travel very easy.
I would strongly recommend this cycling tour to everyone who wants to have a rewarding vacation. Romania is a very interesting and dynamic country! Hope to visit again!
