Romania at first sight

A 10-day suggested itinerary, starting at 220 EUR/person/day

Romania’s story with you as the hero

This 10-day itinerary is going to set you off on a becoming journey across Romania, to rediscover yourself through the wisdom of the old, the generosity of the rural people and traditions that make even the bitterest life’s milestones taste sweet. Travelling from south to north, you’ll traverse some of Romania’s most bucolic regions, where nature reigns and people sing its tune. You’ll learn from Romanians how to whistle in front of adversity and tie fate’s shoelaces as a joke. Who says that life has to be taken seriously, when it can be taken with a pinch of salt and turned into the most delicious bite?

Together, we’ll taste the fruits of Romania’s land and sip its spirit at the wineries from Dealu Mare, Europe’s new old wine-growing district. Beware! As any hero, you’ll face your fears as Dracula’s fangs will close up the past and get you closer to present-day Brasov. You’ll venture in fortresses, recollect at wooden churches, discover the buzz of urban modernity and reward your weary legs and senses with decadent local dishes. Another round please and another and another and then…let’s go! As Romanians say, the road fits the traveller best.

FAQ

We caught the travel bug at a very young age and we were travel junkies before becoming travel professionals. We experienced the highs and lows of this “addiction” and we’ve learned what ropes to pull to spike the ups and ditch the downs. Besides, Romania is our backyard: we’ve breathed it, known it, loved it since we were born. What makes us experts is the combination of both. We put ourselves in your shoes and we use our insider knowledge to make them fit. 

You certainly can, if you have the time and you don’t mind the little imperfections. In theory, anyone can do that, just as anyone can fix something to eat to ease his hunger. But planning a fabulous trip, in perfect harmony with your time, budget, interests and expectations requires expertise, timing and time. If you’re short on any of the above and don’t want to risk blowing your trip, then hiring the right people is the best investment. 

If you’re a family (ideally smaller than Ziona Chana’s) or a group of friends, the answer is yes. Just tell us the group size and what your interests are and we’ll design a memorable journey.

To ensure a smooth and uneventful tour we’ve learned that it’s paramount to be in control of all ingredients, hotels being one of them. That being said, we will offer you several options, if available, leaving you the final call. 

Unfortunately not. All of our tours are private and tailor-made. 

Booking flights is not our area of expertise, but we can gladly advise you on the best way to get to Romania or refer you to a specialised agency.

We recommend that you seek the assistance of a qualified insurance broker in your country of residence.

Planning Your Journey Begins with a Conversation

First, we’ll discuss your needs and expectations, then provide an approximate per-person per-day cost for the journey.

Questions to Consider
  • How many people are you traveling with?
  • What are your special interests? (e.g., wildlife, trekking, visiting cultural sites)
  • What are your comfort and style requirements?
  • Are there any special considerations that might affect our planning? (e.g., financial or medical, a special celebration) etc.
Itinerary Development Fee

After our initial conversation, if you would like our team to proceed with planning your trip and creating a customised itinerary, we will require receipt of an Itinerary Development Fee of 200 euros. Because of the time and attention we put into handcrafting each journey, this fee serves as an agreement that you are dedicated to working with Romania Private Tours. This fee will be credited toward your final balance, but is not refundable should you decide to cancel.

Once we have received this fee, we can fine-tune each detail of the adventure to your heart’s content.

Itinerary Proposal

After we have received your itinerary development fee, we will propose a specific itinerary with the dates or date range based on your availability. We will be ready to discuss itinerary details and will continue to make adjustments based on your feedback. Once you have approved the proposed itinerary, we will reserve space at the chosen hotels and provide you with an exact trip cost. We can still continue to fine-tune until you’re completely comfortable with the itinerary.

Confirmation, Deposit, and Invoice

Once you have approved the itinerary and price, we will book all your arrangements with an additional per-person deposit (30% of trip cost). We will then send a detailed invoice to you.

Final Payment

Sixty (60) days before departure, the balance of the invoice is due. After we have received all payments, your final itinerary, trip briefing will be sent approximately three weeks prior to departure.

Cancellation policy

Cancellation instructions from you must be in writing (email or post) to us and will be effective on the day we receive them.

  • Over 61 days prior to trip start date – Deposit only 
  • Between 31 – 60 days prior trip start date – 70%
