Full description
Explore some of the most important sites in the legendary Transylvania region of Romania on a 3-day package tour from Bucharest. With bed and breakfast accommodation in a 3-star hotel, you will explore the city of Sibiu, once ranked by Forbes Magazine as “Europe’s 8th most idyllic place to live.” Visit medieval castles and monasteries, and explore the fable of Count Dracula. Day 1: Depart from Bucharest and visit the Moorish Monastery of Curtea de Argeș, built by the ruler of Wallachia, Prince Neagoe Basarab, in 1514. Continue to the small Cozia Monastery to discover one of the most important monuments of national medieval art in Romania. After a break for lunch in a traditional Romanian restaurant, drive through the stunning Translyvanian landscape to Sibiu, historic capital of the Principality of Transylvania. The former German medieval citadel, with documentation dating back to 1191, is one of the most beautiful towns in Romania, with many historic buildings that you will explore on a walking tour of the Old Town. In the evening, enjoy a traditional Romanian dinner, with overnight accommodation in Sibiu town center. Day 2: After breakfast, depart Sibiu for the Biertan commune, where you will tour one of the most important Saxon villages of fortified churches in Transylvania, including the largest fortified church in Transylvania, built between 1490 and 1524. Continue to the medieval citadel of Sighișoara, which dates back to 1280 and is home to the only medieval citadel in Europe still populated. During a walking tour, visit the city’s landmark Clock Tower for panoramic views across the ancient houses. After lunch, head to Brasov, surrounded by the Southern Carpathians. The first documented evidence of the medieval citadel dates back to 1235. Birthplace of the Romanian national anthem – and briefly renamed “Stalin City” during the Communist era – Brasov boasts beautiful Gothic churches, medieval buildings, and the narrowest street in Romania, which you will explore on a guided walking tour. Day 3: Following an overnight stay in Brasov, start your day at the city’s Black Church, built in 1383, and the most important tourist site in Brasov. Then, drive to the legendary Bran Castle (Dracula’s Castle), perched on the border between Transylvania and Wallachia. Marked as the home of Bram Stoker’s Count Dracula, explore the castle grounds and museum, before a traditional lunch. Continue your tour at Sinaia, a lovely mountain resort in the Prahova River valley, and visit Peleș Castle, built by the first king of Romania, Carol I. Tour the exquisite Neo-Renaissance building, built between 1875 and 1914, and end your tour of Transylvania’s architectural delights at Sinaia Monastery, founded by Prince Mihail Cantacuzino in the 17th century upon his return from a pilgrimage to Mount Sinai. After exploring the Old Church and the 19th century Great Church, drive back to Bucharest for the end of your tour.

We had a wonderful guide—Boogie—who showed us places of interest and even modified some days better to suit our needs. We loved the tour and believe that we saw and learned a great deal about Romania in those 3 days. The hotels were great and the places chosen for lunches delightful. We could not have asked for more or gotten anything better. We highly recommend this tour and this tour company.

What an amazing experience! Valentine, our tour guide was outstanding. His knowledge of the areas visited (and all other things Romanian) was beyond expectation and he made the places visited 'come alive'. He really knew his stuff-from the best places to eat, the history of Romania and so many interesting facts that it was impossible to remember everything. The castles, towns and scenery were beautiful, hotel accommodation very good and the distance covered was broken up well with short breaks and lunches so it didn't feel as though you were travelling for long periods of time. I highly recommend this tour for adults- young children may not appreciate the beauty and history of the country

Had the best time. I didn't realise it was a private tour until my arrival. It was great to do everything at my own pace. Accommodations were all fabulous. But the best part was my guide. Matei was able to provide me with lots of information for each site without making it boring. We got along great. I would definitely ask for him for any tour I did in Romania.
