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.

You can understand more about the substance of our sightseeing tours and round trips by watching the album on the right side of the page.

Transylvanian-Saxon bacon from the bacon-tower

The Transylvanian Saxons built almost 200 fortress-churches, most of them still dominate the scenery of the respective villages. At many of them, one of the defence towers was surnamed "bacon's tower" – where the peasants kept their bacon "fresh". The custom can still be met, very seldom; by counting the pieces of bacon, one can conclude how little Saxons remained in the village. But: we can taste this bacon (at the former parish house), with fresh onions and home-made bread, together with a small glass of the strong local wine brandy.
