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.

Skyline of Bucharest, with Ceauşescu's "People's House"
Bucharest lies in southern Romania, far away from areas of major interest for the tourists. For many Romanians the capital city stands as a symbol for corruption and bad management. This might be partly true, but Bucharest offers more than just luxury and un-orthodox governmental bureaucrats: the culture is thriving and the "alternative" scene is similar to that of many Western cities. Bucharest is definitely worth a look also for its architectural contrasts: the Neo-Romanian houses of the interwar period and the newer, cosy office buildings of the last decade are both topped by Ceauşescu's "People's House", the gigantic bulwark of the Romanian communism.
