2. Private Trip in Romania- BRAN/ Dracula’s Castle

Arch Of Triumph Bucharest Private Trips

We Romanians are often amused that 80% of the hundreds of thousands of tourists that book Tours of Romania and come from all across the globe to see the Castle of Dracula, or more accurately, the Bran Castle, leave with their history lesson learned and forget about Bram Stoker’s fiction. 

Once you see it in person, you will understand why this castle is one of the most expensive venues in the world and why it has become a symbol of Romanian tourism as the most visited tourist attraction in Romania.

If you want to learn more about this fairytale castle, you can see details about The Dracula’s Castle and book your private tour here , and also you private guide. 

3. Private Trip in  Romania- Brasov City Tour

Are you looking for a different urban experience through which you can explore history, culture, and rediscover the beauty of nature, all at the same time? The city of Brasov is the ideal destination for lovers of history, music and culture, adventure, good food, winter sports, hunting, hiking, and even romance. It is the quintessential mountain adventure. 

The city of Brasov will be the highpoint of your trip – quite literally. Even though its average altitude is 625 meters, because its structure includes the Postavaru Peak, it is the highest city in Romania. Brasov is also the only city in the world that contains a natural reservation, the one on mount Tampa, which has earned it a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

Whether you opt for the Brasov one-day tour or for the two-hour tour, it would be a shame to miss the Black Church in Brasov. Not only is it the largest gothic house of worship from Southeastern Europe, but it is not every day that you get to see a building that miraculously survived a devastating fire, like the one in 1689.

Its walls turned black from the smoke, giving which is how it became known as the Black Church.

With construction finalized in 1477, over 540 years ago, the parish church of the Lutheran Evangelic community has always been one of the most visited tourist attractions in Romania, as well as the largest church in Romania, measuring 89 meters in length and 38 meters in width, which means in can host up to 5000 people.

5. Private Trip in Romania- Sinaia Monastery

Peoples-House Ceausescu Romania

In the most beautiful mountain resort, a place where many kings and important figures came to unwind and reflect, Sinaia Monastery is where you have the chance to escape reality and taste the simplicity and richness of orthodox spirituality, beautifully expressed in the artistic representations of this house of worship. 

As soon as you pass the massive door of this fortified monastery, you will step into a place of absolute peace and tranquility, bestowed upon by the divine spirit, where even time has stopped to enjoy it. With the help of your private guide you will have the chance to better understand the history of Romania. 

The orthodox establishment is over 300 years old and it is dubbed as “the Cathedral of the Carpathians” due to its positioning in the most beautiful mountain resort in Romania surrounded by a stunning mountain scenery. It was also the first construction in this territory, founded by Prince (Spatarul) Mihai Cantacuzino. He decided to erect the house of worship following a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, with its name inspired by Mount Sinai..

Frequently Asked Questions

The questions below are in most cases extracted from our correspondence with our clients. Have a look, maybe the  question forming in your mind right now has been answered already, and you haven’t even had a chance to ask it!

Where do the tours start?

Our tours start in either Sofia (Bulgaria) or Bucharest (Romania). Both cities have well-connected international airports. However, we can also customise the tours to start in a different city, if that better suits your flight arrangements. Alternative airports include Varna or Burgas (in Bulgaria) or Sibiu, Cluj Napoca, Iasi and Targu Mures (in Romania).

What are the departure dates?

We do not have set departure dates. All our tours are private and organised on request. The dates when you start and end the tour are entirely up to you.

I like one of the tours, but I’d like to make some changes to the itinerary. Is it possible?

Of course. All our tours are customisable. We can make changes to one itinerary, join 2 itineraries together, or you can just tell us about the places you want to see, and we’ll make a whole new itinerary just for you! Customising a tour comes at no extra charge.

I would like to change some of the hotels that come with the tour. Can I do that?

Definitely. The hotels are always up to you. We can upgrade the standard selection of hotels, or if you are on a budget, we can also offer cheaper accommodation options.

I see that in most cases, only breakfast is included. Why is that?

Having meals included means that you would have to be at a certain restaurant at a certain time just so that you don’t miss a pre-booked meal. This takes away from one of the great advantages of a private tour: flexibility. Not having a restaurant pre-booked gives you great freedom to set your own pace each day, add or skip some sights as you go, etc.
To ensure maximum flexibility throughout your trip, meals are usually planned as you go. Your guide knows the best restaurants in each area you travel through and will make suggestions based on the kind of meal you’d like to have.
The meals we include are the ones that come with an important cultural element: home-cooked meals where you can interact with locals, lunches at homes of artists where you learn more about a specific form of art, or refreshments such as the ones offered during the home visit with the Gypsy family.

Do your tours include any insurance related services?

No. We recommend to all of our clients to carry a medical insurance that would cover any health-related costs that might incur while on the trip. Insurance for trip interruption and lost/stolen luggage is also recommended.

Do I have to pay for the guide’s meals?

No. The guide will have a meal allowance, which will cover his meals. Furthermore, the guide will only join you for meals if you ask him to – if you’d rather be on your own for lunch and/or dinner, that is perfectly fine.

How about changes of itinerary on the fly? Can we do that?

Changes on the fly can be done to a certain extent. You can always choose to skip a meal or a sight, or swap for a totally different sight altogether. Alterations of itinerary that imply hotel changes are subject to rooms availability. Also, please note that in the case of last minute hotel cancellations, sometimes the hotel may charge late-cancellation penalties which can be up to 100% of the reservation cost. Additional costs generated by on-the-fly changes will be billed separately.

The Trip MAP

This itinerary is indicative and subject to change over time, so please consider the reference which you will receive in the offer, after you have requested tour or excursion that.

We say this because, so the trip to the caves, and walk on Transfagarasan are accessible only certain months of the year.
