Outstanding experience An outstanding experience, starting with the fact that the owner speaks multiple languages (English, French, Russian, Ukrainian), and all very well which for non-Romanians is a gift as few locals do. The boat was extra comfortable—clean, stable, well-protected from the sun. The toilet was very clean. The meal tasty and nicely served. This was certainly an international-level experience. Would wholeheartedly recommend. Suggest also to ask about a small boat tour early in the morning, an entirely different way to see the delta. The tours are complimentary to each other.

Amazing host and guide for a tour of the delta I visited in the depths of winter but Ciprian gave me a wonderful private tour of the delta, demonstrating amazing knowledge of the environment and wildlife. His passion for what he does is clear, and makes for a great experience.

Amazing trip through the beautiful nature of the danube delta. We booked the Tour very spontaneously the Night before easily via WhatsApp and had no problems finding our guide the next morning. Our guide showed us the beautiful landscape of the danube delta, was very friendly and funny all the time and put lots of effort in slowing the boat any time he could Show us something Special. We saw many pelikans and other beautiful birds next to the stunning flora & fauna of the danube delta. The traditional fish meal in the local village (mila23) at the end of the route was very delicious and worth the 60lei. All together we had an amazing trip and got a good insight in the romanian culture. We will highly recommend this tour to Family and Friends and anyone who would like to experience the beauty of the danube delta.

Great Tour and and Tourguide We have booked a 5 hour Grouptour of the delta with an authentic Lunch in Mila 23. We made the booking a day before and he managed to organize us a driver from Mamaia, Constanta to Tulcea. The driver and the Guide were both friendly and helpful. The Delta was a great experience. The nature and the wildlife there is unique. The Guide had a lot of informations about everything. The Lunch was even better than expected.

Thrilling and extradorinary! The whole trip was a thrill! It was exactly as described and ran on time. It was exciting to discover the natural beauty of the delta channels and see the local people fish and enjoy the river. Our captain and guide Ciprian was friendly and really good at proving explanations and making sure spotted the fauna (and everyone got turns riding in the front of the boat). The fish lunch was delicious and there were other options for non-fish eaters. Highly recommended.

Professional Ciprian is no doubt a professional guide and boat tour operators. His English is very good and he is very friendly. He answered my many questions before we meet. Though in the end of the day I realized that the options are limited. The boat was well organized and maybe a bit too clean. In the end of the day all my family were happy and this what is important.

fantastisch! Tijdens ons verblijf in Tulcea hebben wij een dagtocht met Safca Delta Tours gedaan. De boot vertrok 's ochtends om 9.30 uur en de hele trip duurde ongeveer 7 uur. In een gemoedelijk tempo ging het via de zijvertakkingen van de Donau Delta. In de rustiger gelegen en smallere vaarroutes konden wij verschillende vogels spotten: veel zilverreigers, blauwe reigers, zwanen, pelikanen en twee soorten aalscholvers. Maar ook enkele ralreigers (Ardeola ralloides), lepelaars en zelfs twee zeearenden. Op een bepaald gedeelte van de delta zagen wij tientallen ijsvogels. Een warme lunch was optioneel vooraf te boeken. Iedereen van de totaal 6 passagiers had voor deze optie gekozen. Wij kregen als voorgerecht een vissoep en als hoofdgerecht twee soorten vis geserveerd. Alles werd vers aan boord bereid. En de vis was gelukkig wel afkomstig uit de Donau. Na de lunch werden wij in een kleine roeiboot naar een rustig meer geroeid en weer terug naar onze boot. Daarna ging de boottocht verder. De Donau Delta lijkt op een tropisch oerwoud. De enorme bomen die vaak door klimop zijn overwoekerd en de vogelgeluiden zorgen voor een exotisch decor. Het was een comfortabele boot met voordek en een achterdek en een toilet aan boord. De tour hebben wij de vooravond geboekt. Tijdens een wandeling langs de kade van Tulcea was de eigenaar aan het werk en konden wij deze tour ter plekke voor de volgende dag boeken. RON 200,- per persoon inclusief een warme lunch en exclusief fooi was voor ons een prima prijs.

Amazing trip through Donau Delta with great guide The tour was well planned with varying and interesting stops. Passionate guide with lots of information about region and wildlife. There is a possibility to lunch (costs extra) and is highly recommended. Traditional fresh fish with local wine.

Absolutely amazing. Will return. Most Danube Delta tour companies are not active off-season, but Safca is active year-round. My wife and I were the only passengers on this tour, which we consider extremely good service. They guide and crew spoke very good English and were knowledgeable and friendly. They helped us spot birds and taught us about the ornithology, history, culture and geography of the Danube Delta. The hospitality aboard was above reproach. For lunch we were served the famous Danube Delta fish-stew, and it truly deserved its reputation as among the best of its kind in the world. We hotel pick-up and drop-off were smooth. We cannot recommend Safca highly enough. One thing: if you go on a winter tour make sure you dress up warmly. Even though warm drinks and blankets are provided it can get cold.

Amazing service! I did the speed boat tour with some friends and we all loved it! The first thing was to see how nice the Safca are! We arrived and got a very warm and smiley welcome from Safca Ionel and then from Ciprian. The boat was very confortable, and Ciprian was always giving us useful information and doing his best to find bird nests. It was a mix of relaxing and exciting and we finished it wanting more! Thank you very much and really hope to do it again!

We've made 1day trip with Ciprian Safca and we completely enjoyed it. We' ve seen all we've expected and received plenty of explanations, descriptions, hystorical facts and also lots of humour. The trip consisted in several hours through the canals, lacs etc, lunch at Mila 23 (Marcov pension, very good lunch) and trip to Letea.
