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.

Romania's Cinderella-region in tourism: Oltenia
West of Bucharest, between the Carpathians, the Danube and the river Olt lies the region called Oltenia. Only few foreign tourists visit this area within their round trips. But Oltenia is quite suitable for sightseeing, especially its northern part, set at the foothills of the Carpathians. There are many old Orthodox monasteries here, well worth visiting because of a type of late-Byzantine architecture, called "Brancoveanu-style"; intricate carvings, originating in the Western Baroque but with a strong oriental note, are typical of this architecture. The most famous place in northern Oltenia is Horezu monastery, included on UNESCO's list of World Cultural Heritage.
