Should you do all the activities on offer, you'll be in for a potentially tiring string of early mornings and late nights, with much of the time being spent on the road. We'd have appreciated it if a little 'down time' had been built in to the week: perhaps a morning or afternoon off. Those in the group who opted out of an activity really enjoyed the chance to sit on the guesthouse's lovely terrace or amble around the village (or, in the case of some who shall remain nameless, amble into a villager's house, believing it to be a pub).
We're also not convinced that the quality of the restaurant in Poiana Brasov justifies the rather long drive to get there. With such delicious, fresh food and excellent catering for vegetarians available at the guesthouse, the restaurant suffers in comparison.
Finally, when it comes to wildlife-watching, there are obviously no guarantees. A very squelchy walk through the sucking mud of the batcave resulted in a few of us fleetingly spotting ONE bat.
