Adina Camara

Asociat, Director, Ghid

In Explore Romania din 2003

Nascuta in 1979, are studii economice si de turism, vorbeste fluent limbile engleza si franceza. Cam de cand se stie, Adina a calatorit in Romania in lung si in lat, cu masina, pe jos, cu bicicleta sau pe schiuri, asa ca a fost cat se poate de firesc pentru ea sa-si infiinteze propria agentie de turism atunci cand a terminat facultatea.  Pe langa interesul constant pentru activitatile outdoor, respecta si apreciaza foarte mult satele romanesti, peisajul rural si modul de viata al celor care traiesc aici, in stransa legatura cu natura si cu mostenirea lor culturala – unul din scopurile ei fiind sa contribuie la conservarea acestora.  
Se bucura de cate ori are ocazia sa-i conduca pe oaspetii nostri in aceste locuri, incurajandu-i sa experimenteze gastronomia si vechile mestesuguri si traditii din satele romanesti.  
Adina creeaza si ghideaza o mare parte a tururilor noastre.

Maria Andrunache

Travel Manager

In Explore Romania din 2011

Nascuta in 1978, are studii economice, vorbeste fluent limba engleza.
Cea mai mare parte a experientei sale profesionale a fost dobandita in domeniile resurse umane si consultanta.  S-a gandit insa la un moment dat ca ar putea transforma una din activitatile ei preferate pentru timpul liber – calatoritul – intr-o ocupatie full-time.  Are experienta in organizarea de evenimente pentru grupuri, dar si in a lucra cu persoane de nationalitati si provenind din culturi diferite, ceea ce o ajuta in pregatirea de programe personalizate, in functie de interesele fiecaruia.
