1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

There is no doubt that the best part of our vacation was that we were fortunate to have Andrei as our guide. He was fantastic and always went that bit extra to make what is a great tour into a fantastic tour. He was friendly, efficient, extremely knowledgeable and was proud to be Romanian so that journeying through the country was a delight. Consequently, there were too many highlights for us to single out any one experience as the most memorable. Every day was memorable and for all the right reasons. However, if forced to name one best attribute of the vacation as the most memorable, it would have to be the home stays and the opportunities it offers to meet the "real" Romanians and some very interesting fellow travelers.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Just hope that Responsible Travel continues to use the same Romanian travel company and request Andrei as the guide. Also, don't be deterred by the prospect of rural home stays. They are a great enhancement to the overall Romanian experience.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Certainly. The home stays put the money in at the local level and provided income for small family guest houses and individuals. Our guide always commented on environmental issues at every place we stayed at.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent.
