Romania is such a beautiful country! I was mesmerised by incredible landscapes, so varied and enchanting. Can't wait to go back to explore more!

Thank you, Cornelia, for taking our wish list of things to see and do and organizing them into a wonderful private tour. Your professionalism was greatly appreciated by my sister and myself. The accommodations with their variety in style and amenities were all very lovely and comfortable.

Our driver/guide Robert Terebesi was outstanding. His commentary was so interesting.
He selected amazing restaurants for their atmosphere and delicious food, as well as their beer and wine selections. He included additional points of interest, an extra art gallery for my sister, places for me to take pictures of wildlife. He even found a place to repair my glasses.

This tour provided us with beautiful memories of Romania's scenery, wildlife, history and culture.
As a birder, the Delta was a dream come true. The return to the Saxon villages of my parents' birth was very sad, yet they were special moments. We look forward to another visit to explore more of Romania.

Thank you very much!

Thanks so much for being such a great guide.

We had an absolutely amazing time and loved the villages in Maramures. We can see why you fell in love with the place. We have done the same.
You were so helpful and made everything easy for us.
In the rush to get the tickets for the train and being dropped off myself and Sophie forgot to give you something to show our thanks. Is there anyway of getting a tip to you?
I hope so.

Many thanks mate

Hi Andre,

We wanted to thank you again for the wonderful week we spent with you in Romania -- especially in Maramures! We have included the link to our blog if anyone is interested in reading about our impressions and seeing our pictures.


All the best,

Dear Cristina,
Nice to hear from you!
We were a bit disappointed not to meet you in Cluj to thank you for your collaboration and tell you about how our trip developed. Anyway we thought about contacting you once in Spain. I came back to work yesterday and I had you in my mind.
As I told Andrei, everything was perfect in our trip. We especially liked the guesthouses that I remember you recommended us so much. The food was delicious there (you were right) and we really appreciate the contact with Romanian people as we could ask them plenty of questions about the country. The owners were really kind with us; we did not expect that Romanians are so talkative and open; it was really a very nice discovery. Your Latin roots are evident โ˜บ
We liked very much all the places we visited (landscapes are wonderful). We were shocked about the number of tourists in Sinaia!
We definitely enjoyed very, very much the Monasteries in Moldavia (by the way, the guesthouse in Vama was perfect), the Saxon villages and fortified churches, and Sighisoara and Sibiu which are magnificentโ€ฆ
To sum up, we came back absolutely enchanted with Romania and now when I talk to my friends and colleagues about our holidays there, many are planning to visit you.
Thank you very, very much to make us discover in such a nice way and without any incident a part of your country.
Itโ€™s been a pleasure to meet you personally and you can be sure that we will recommend Pan Travel whenever someone decides to visit your place. I have the feeling that I work for the Romanian Tourist office in Albacete, many people have now Romania as an option for next year holidays โ˜บ
Be sure that we will come back to you if you decide to visit Romania again and please contact me if you ever think about visiting Spain. I will be delighted to help you in the same way you did.
Kind regards,

We spent a really nice week in Maramures and Bucovina in a guided tour with Andrei of Pan Travel. We could enjoy the beautiful landscapes of these regions, the architecture of its houses, churces and monastries, but on top of all we apreciated the proudness of the people, still close to their traditions.
I will definitely recommend you as guide and Pan Travel as travel agency to anyone who may be interested discovering your Country (= Romania simply surprising).

Thank you and Cornelia again for everything.

Dear Andrei

Good to hear that the two โ€˜sausagesโ€™ reached you safely, we do hope that they survive longer than your previous examples
Our trip to Romania already seems some time back, Clive is now in Crete until mid September and I have to return to work for a few more weeks although, we have many happy memories as well as enlightening times learning so much of the European history that alluded us in our school history classes all those years ago.
Thank you for all your patience and insight, making our trip so vibrant and full of vitality, just a pity we didnโ€™t have the time to venture further into the north, perhaps next timeโ€ฆ

Kind regards

Hello Cornelia,

I know it has been awhile since our trip, but I just realized that I never sent a thank you note. Paul and I had a wonderful time in Romania. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery, medieval towns, and monasteries. Everyone we met was very friendly and we enjoyed the home-cooked meals at the pensions. We wanted to let you know that we found your company to be competent and efficient and were very satisfied with the services you provided.

Thank you again,

Dear Cristina

We have arrived back home after a wonderful holiday in your beautiful country.

Thank you for organising an excellent and well planned itinerary which enabled us to see so many different aspects of Romanian life and culture in a 10 day tour; each day brought us new and interesting experiences and the distances between destinations allowed us sufficient time relax and enjoy the attractions.

The hospitality we received in each guest house was superb; our hosts were all very friendly and helpful. The guest houses were all located in beautiful countryside with lovely views; we could not have found them without your help. In each place we stayed we had a lovely room and enjoyed splendid meals. Please pass our thanks to all of our hosts; unfortunately we did not have the language skills to convey our appreciation as we would have wished. We would particularly like to thank Maria and Yon in Botiza. Maria is first class chef and many of the ingredients she used were fresh from their wonderful garden. We had the pleasure of eating all our meals in the garden and were treated as if we were members of their family rather than paying guests. Yon was most friendly and helpful, he even washed the car for us! We enjoyed his company and had some interesting conversations in a mix of English, French and hand pictures.

We made one variation to the planned itinerary by travelling on the Transfagarasan mountain road on our return journey to Bucharest; We would recommend this route; the scenery is stunning and the engineering achievement of its construction most impressive.

Please also thank Andrei for his friendly and helpful advice.

We would recommend Pan Travel to anyone considering a visit to Romania.

Thanks again

Best wishes

Dear Geta,

I can't find words to say thank you enough!
You are the most organized and efficient person I ever met in the tourist agencies field.
We found all you promised fulfilled, and it seems you thought about any possible detail.
The hotels reservations where made carefully.
The cruise was set, and my family enjoyed it very much.
The singer's voice in the folk show was beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚
The reading materials from the travel file you collected kept us amused in long driving times.
The driver was ready for our tight schedule and showed remarkable ingenuity, which helped him to take us to the unusual places we seek for (of course the maps you got for us helped with that also).
And most important โ€“ all my family was so happy with everything all the time.
I found your help much more useful than I thought I could expect, and I will definitely recommend you and your company to any friend who goes to Romania, and I know my family members will do so two.

Please send our thanks also to Andrei who met us and made sure we will get all we need in the first night.

Best regards,
Anava Getzov, and all the family members.

Andrei, thank you SO MUCH for your great service, knowlege and sense of humor as you showed my wife and I the sights of Transylvania, Walachia and Bucharest in June. We truely had a WONDERFUL time seeing the country, learning about its history, meeting people, sampling the food and enjoying. Also, our accomodations were spot on and we really enjoyed the guesthouse nights in the villages. Also, thanks to the PAN team in setting everyting up. To sum up...Romania: Simply Surprising. Thanks!

Buna ziua Andrei!
Thank you SO MUCH for an incredible four day trip through Maramures earlier this month! It was an experience that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. As I describe my Romania trip to friends and family, the portion I continually describe with the most enthusiasm is Maramures.

So many guides simply drive people around and say things along the lines of "here's this building, it was built in...." You brought so much more to the trip than that. It was obvious that you enjoy people, and especially the people of Maramures. As you now know, I can be quite shy, your outgoing nature allowed me to experience SO MUCH MORE than I ever could have on my own. Meeting people, talking with them, being invited into homes - that was amazing.

Thank you again for such a positive experience. I can and will heartily recommend your services to anyone else headed to Romania.

Dear Geta,
I am sorry for not getting back to you sooner. We just came back straight to work and other obligations. Now at the weekend there is some time to write.
We enjoyed our tour in Romania very much. Everything was well planned. Only on the last day we did not have enough time for Sibu and the open air museum.
The accommodations were great. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere in the villages, and the beds and the showers in the more modern ones (at Rashnov, Rimetia,etc).
Our driver George, was excellent. He was very polite, nice, friendly and helpful. We have only good words to say about him. He was especially helpful finding the places we were looking for, the Jewish cemetery in Borsa, the house etc.
Thank you again for everything.
All the best,
Edna and the families

Dear Mihaela
We have all arrived home safe and sound having had a wonderful time in your beautiful country, pity about the weather because we did not really have the correct clothes, it did not seem to worry the members they all said how much they enjoyed themselves.
Cristian was such a good guide he looked after us all so well the whole 10 days, please do thank him from me he made the trip interesting and enabled us to see so much even the mad idea when we wanted to visit a supermarket!
Also I must thank you so much for the gift of the book and plate that was very kind and the book especially will help people who took photographs in the Merry Cementry in Sapanta to find out what was written on the grave, I promised them I would check in the book.
I do have one comment to make that I hope you will not mind but we were really offered too much food (for British people I should add). Most of us would only have a small snack at lunch time when at home so felt terrible that we were sending plates back to the kitchen with only half the food eaten. I am sure we must have upset the cooks and we are very sorry.
Thank you also for all the trouble you took to arrange the tour.
Best wishes

Hello Geta,
Our holidays were great!
We had a great time in all of the Guesthouses and the landscape is beautiful. I was surprised how fresh the air can be so near to Cluj ,)
Everything almost everything went like it was planned, we got picked up for Chiscau, found all the busses with your description and the help of the hosts without problem.
Only on the 2nd day after Pestera Ursilor we couldn't catch a bus before 18:30 but we just enjoyed on a second hand market for the waiting time. So we missed Cheile Ordancusii this day, but put it spontaneously the next after the Ice Cave, a very adventurous day.
It was relaxing and exciting and we really got so many new impressions.

Dear Julia,
Just a quick note to say many thanks for arranging my weeks travel. It all worked perfectly and gave me a pretty good overall impression of some of Romania. The accomadation was perfect and Brasov worked well. I got back to Nicoresti for 5.30.

Thank you again, and please pass my thanks on to Andrei for all the fetching and carrying.
Best regards,

Hello PanTravel,

You were the only one who could arrange a guide for caving guiding in Apuseni Mountains! It was great and we've seen beautiful caves, landscapes and a gorges. Thank you very much!

ByeBye Charlie and Michele

Dear Andrei,
We are home safely, and we are just beginning to sort through our happy experiences in Romania. Thank you for helping us experience such a range of adventures in your beautiful country. I'm attaching some of the pictures you requested. I hope you are enjoying a few nights of sleeping in your own bed.
With all good wishes, Dan and Susan

Yes, we enjoyed the country and your company's services. It was the right choice for us. For me personally, the highlight is seeing how Rumania is progressing, after so many terrible years of communism.

So there you have it, a snapshot of my impressions, and of my best wishes to you and your colleagues for providing an excellent travel service. Your team is really top notch, and I won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone travelling in Rumania. As a tourist operator myself, I can truly say you took great care of us, and you do a great job. Thank you !
