I found Secret Transylvania on Trip advisor having searched for a holiday where I could see bears in the wild. We were not disappointed. We went for the inclusive option where we were taken out on a different excursion each day. On the bear day we saw 10 bears (from a hide), including a mum and baby. The day was finished off by a meal cooked and served by a Romanian lady in her own home - her warmth and kindness was wonderful. I think the accommodation holds a total of 10 guests, so most days you are with other people though on a couple of days we were on our own as the others were doing different trips. We were fortunate to be with a good crowd. We ate our evening meals out about half of the time. We would have preferred an extra one or two at home as Sue's cooking is really, really good. There is a good mix of excursions some of which involve a long drive. These were usually broken up by stops at other place on route. We particularly enjoyed the rural day which was closer to home. In short we would definitely recommend staying here and seeing some of Romania. Bob, Sue Jez and Di are excellent hosts and went out of their way to make our holiday memorable. It was our wedding anniversary while we were with them and they went out of their way to make it special. Many thanks to all of them and they have our unreserved recommendation. Thanks Bob and Sue.
