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 Saxons of Transylvania and their fortress-churches

The Germans of Transylvania – the "Transylvanian Saxons" and their heritage of monuments, are important within the round trips of Romania. But there are not many Saxons left here after the big exodus in the early 1990's. In our tours of Transylvania we visit some of the impressive Saxon "fortress-churches", like the one in the picture above, in the village Şeica Mică (Kleinschelken). Mister Draser, one of the remaining Saxons, explains with a lot of passion the history of the village and his people. After the visit, we'll have a simple wine tasting at the former Lutheran parish house; Kleinschelken was one renowned for its good wines.
