Guides and Tour Managers
Highly skilled guides who know how to impart enthusiasm and fascinating information in equal proportions are a vital component in your holiday enjoyment. You will be introduced to little-known features as well as the ‘must see’ highlights of each destination, but also given time and a few useful pointers to make your own discoveries. We endeavour to design trips in a civilised way, allowing space for individual ‘standing and staring’. We very much hope that you will enjoy their company.

Is a forest engineer by profession, but after several years working for the Romanian National Forestry Department he decided that leading tours in Romania and abroad was far more fun than organising large stands of trees! With  more than 10 years experience as a tour leader, Tudor has a great love for his country and all aspects of its culture, history and natural history.
