    "I reviewed a range of Romanian operators before deciding on Romanian Motorcycle Tours (RMT). Once I had spoken to Maria it was clear that she was professional and dedicated to the success of her business, i.e. happy customers. It was her passion for riding and her attention to detail that finally convinced me to go with RMT as my choice. It has been a trip of a lifetime, very well planned and executed and with a team of people who share Maria's passion. Every day on the ride as filled with some type of highlight which exceeded whatever "WOW" we experienced the day before."

    "This was truly a trip of a lifetime. We knew very little about Romania prior to this adventure, but had seen a picture of the Transfaragasan a few months before and the idea was borne. I found the tour company during a web search and I am so glad I reached out to the owner Maria. Maria was helpful and reassuring from day 1. We booked the flights but every other detail was taken care of, from bikes to accommodations to meals. We didn't even have to worry about transferring to and from the airport. Every minute of our day was taken care of....meals, riding, sites to see, evening activities. We did the Best of Transylvania 7 day tour. Adi was our leader and Alex (Alexa) followed in a car with our luggage. We would show up at the prearranged hotels and the luggage would be waiting in our room. They both acted as guides, translators, and problem solvers. Alex took photos the whole time and I am still going through the more than 1000+ photos that she downloaded to a memory card for me to take. That's priceless."

    "My wife and I did the last Carpathian tour of the season in 2014. The 800cc BMW was great for the two of us and handled well on all the many hairpin bends. The organisation was excellent and the varied accommodation was great fun, especially the Manor & the Winery. The scenery was fantastic and there was so much to see we wished we had come in summer with longer nights! The people were welcoming and the preservation of history extensive. This corner of Europe is still not well known so we would recommend visiting now before it becomes "discovered"."
