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.

Voroneţ, one of Bucovina's famous "painted monasteries"
There where always many monasteries in Romania, and nowadays they are blooming once again: some 500 monasteries are active throughout the country, about a quarter of which have been opened in the last 20 years. For the cultural sightseeing tours, the monasteries of the sub-region Bucovina (northern part of the Moldova / Moldavia region) are of key significance. In the XVI-th century, there was a trend of covering the outside walls of these churches with vivid frescoes, intricate paintings depicting religious scenes. Voroneţ belongs to these "painted monasteries"; it is very advisable, not to hurry up the visits here, it takes a bit of time to get a grip on these genuine displays of medieval art.
