Has anyone been to the Danube delta??? How did you get there?!?
I'm having a hard time trying to find out how to do it. Any advice on acommodation and tours would be fantastic too. Tours seem quite expensive. I wonder if I just turned up could I get a local guide/tour or something for a fraction of the web-advertised costs?
I see that you need some help for your trip. Well I'm in a hurry now so I'll just say just a few things, if you have some specific questions I'll be happy to help you. The cheapest way for you you trip is on your own, avoid travel agencies.
You can find good deals for accomodation at "pensiuni"( www.pensiunideltadunarii.ro), from 10-15 euros/night.
You can get there by train (from Bucharest - to Tulcea) and by boat from Tulcea - to Sulina (E 10).
The locals will be happy to give you a tour especially if you rent one of their boats for a tour - which can be negociable...
As I said, if you have more questions - contact me.
