If you want to plan your holiday in Romania and you are not sure what to choose, here are some frequently asked questions that can help you make a better choice.

What is the best way to travel in Romania?

There are many ways to travel in Romania and enjoy this experience to the fullest. But whatever you choose, it is good to pay attention to certain aspects. If you choose to book a guided tour, make sure that the travel agency that organizes it complies with the legal requirements (to have a travel license issued by the Romanian Ministry of Tourism, to have valid insolvency insurance and to work with authorized guides). If you decide to explore Romania with a local tour operator (as we are), you can choose to go on a private tour with guide or on a self-drive tour.

Private tours with guide in Romania

Our private tours in Romania are guided tours in which you will be permanently accompanied by a guide-driver. He will help you with check-in and check-out at the hotel, will tell you stories about the places you visit, will accompany you inside the tourist attractions to give you more details about them and will make sure that you have the best possible experience. Private tours are suitable for those who need flexibility and someone to take care of the whole trip. Basically, in a private tour, your only concern is to enjoy the trip. The itinerary can be customized from 0 and can be easily adapted. If you want more free time on certain days or you want to visit certain attractions that are harder to reach, the itinerary will be adapted to your needs. Private tours are also very popular among those who want to combine a vacation in Romania with discovering the places where their ancestors lived. On a private tour, you can include both the well-known attractions in Romania, as well as visits to isolated villages and talk to locals so you can discover your Romanian ancestors.

Self-drive tours in Romania

Driving tours in Romania are self-guided tours, meaning that you will not be accompanied by any guide. Yes, you can rent your own car and you can plan your trip to Romania alone, enjoying a successful vacation. What we offer through these driving tours is that you can enjoy the flexibility of a trip on your own, without the hassle of planning and researching in advance. Our self-guided tours in Romania include car rental, accommodation, a detailed itinerary and assistance before and during the trip. This means that we do all the planning and include in the route the attractions you want and those that we agree upon, tips and tricks to visit them, important notes and information (that you can find only on Romanian language sites), restaurant recommendations and self-guided walking tours that you won’t find anywhere else. Also, once you start the route you can contact us for assistance. Another advantage is that they are cheaper than private guided tours. All our tours can be booked as both driving tours and private guided tours.

Group tours to Romania

For those who prefer to visit Romania with a guide, at a more affordable price, we sometimes offer escorted tours to Romania in small groups. These are group guided tours, with fixed departure dates and include accommodation, transport, guidance, tourist attractions and some meals. Escorted tours are suitable for those who prefer standard tours. Departure dates and routes cannot be changed and therefore these tours do not offer the same flexibility as private tours.

What is the best time to visit Romania?

Summer in Romania is from June to September. Temperatures can be as high as 40 degrees in big cities, but on the other hand, it is also the most popular season for traveling in Romania. Winter is from December to February, quite cold and in some areas with snow. The Christmas period is suitable for those who want to experience the local Christmas traditions and the food cooked then. Spring can be rainy and quite capricious, with average temperatures or it can be sunny and warm. Spring is suitable because all nature is green and you can have warm days, perfect for long walks in the cities. Autumn is usually sunny from September to November. Now you can fully enjoy the unique colours of this season and the natural attractions in Romania. No matter which month you choose to visit Romania, you will surely find the right vacation for you. More details about the best month to visit Romania can be found here.

How many days do you need in Romania?

In order to fully enjoy your vacation and to discover the main tourist attractions, you need at least 7 days in Romania. But if you have fewer days, you can start with a day in Bucharest to which you can later add 2-3 days in Transylvania. More time means more places to visit. The itinerary can be adapted depending on the time you have available. After you saw Bucharest and part of Transylvania you can continue with Maramures, Bucovina and the Danube Delta. When you plan how many days to spend in Romania, you must take into account that although the distances do not seem long, sometimes the lack of highways makes them be travelled in a long time. For example, a plan to visit Transylvania and Maramures from Bucharest in 3 days is unrealistic. Another example of an unrealistic tour is a day trip to the Danube Delta or Sibiu from Bucharest.

Is the food in Romania expensive?

No, the food in Romania is not expensive. For 25-30 euros per person, you can enjoy a full wine&dine meal. Also, if you don’t want to sit in a restaurant, you can buy sandwiches or other street food to go for 5-10 euros. We usually don’t include meals in our tours in Romania because it depends on every traveller’s choice if he wants a take-out or a restaurant meal.

What part of Romania is the most beautiful?

That is a tough question. And probably the best answer to it is: it depends. All those who know Romania will recommend you to visit Transylvania: beautiful landscape, rural life and amazing castles. The party people love Bucharest due to its many pubs and clubs. The Danube Delta is a unique place you can visit if you like to admire the wildlife. And I could go, but as you can see it depends on what you are looking for.
