Superb location

Very good meal, especially fish soup. You can eat other things (chicken), but fish prepared like in Danube Delta is rare to find.
Birdwatching was excellent, I took a lot of photos in this trip (about 800 each day). The guide showed us a lot of places, I estimate we made 100 km in 5h30 each day. We chosed how long to stay in each place, depending of birds we saw.
I was with a group of friends, I recommend this, because boats are for 8 persons (plus the guide). We were in 2 boats.
I recommend visiting Danube Delta at least once, probably you will come back.
I was there in 2018 and 2019 and I will come back for sure.
The best periods are in spring and autumn, you should reserve in advance. It is not a last minute trip, it was planned long ago.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Reserve in advance, there are not many location like this and the trip should be planned.
