Testimonials

philCame to Romania to ride the Transfagarasan because the Top Gear guy said it was the best road. Along the way discovered Transylvania to be a beautiful place to visit, it’s like France but a third of the price. Both Alex and Claudia are excellent host and doubled as tour guide. And the riding was fun and challenging.
Beside riding the amazing Transfagarasan and Transalpina, we visited lots of castles built by German including the infamous Dracula castle. Crossed a fast-flowing river on a barge attached to a cable. Rode some dirt road on a R1200GS to our hotel. This bike tour exceeded my expectation. Phil N
