Sightseeing tours in Romania
round trips, group travel with focus on
culture, land and people
Romania: history, monuments, but also a sort of genuine naturalness. The dramatic past, as well as the traces of different people and cultures ensure a rich basket of captivating places. After 2005 we have noticed a growth of the sightseeing travel of all sorts in Romania – and hence the significant improvements of the infrastructure. The other side of the coin: an increase of mass tourism "industry". We consciously avoid this, so our guests can sample first-hand experiences about Romania and its people.
Our sightseeing tours are almost exclusively customized tours. Past experiences with round trips and cultural tours help already with the planning and preparation stage. We recommend: small groups (up to 20 guests), with focus on smaller areas (instead of the whole country) and not visiting xx must-see sites per day; it is advisable to include time for exploring and meeting local people, such minor things will eventually become lasting memories.
The customers of our sightseeing tours are tour operators, travel agents but also (directly) private groups of guests (associations etc.). Starting from a direct request we can arrange together the matching tour package for you or your customers.

The joy of living, in Eastern Europe: pleasure from music
The region of Maramureş (Maramuresh) in northern Romania is known as a travel destination mostly because of the countless wooden churches and, generally, for the wooden architecture and the traditional way of living of the local inhabitants. But if the tourists only visit a few churches here, they don't get much of this traditional living. This is the reason why we try to meet all sorts of interesting, gifted people of the Maramures. Gheorghe Opriş in the village Sârbi owns an old production facility based on water power: a corn mill, a fulling mill, a threshing machine and a distillery – all running smoothly. And after a glass of plum brandy with the guests, we may discover his passion for singing.
