Languages: English, Italian, German, French
I have over 20 years of proven experience in Romania Tours and have collaborated with prestigious travel guide books. My best selling tour is the Romanian Rhapsody Tour.
With over 20 years of proven experience I tour Romania focusing on the fabulous Transylvania with its architectural heritage, Maramures with an special program there, Bucovina with the Painted Monasteries - UNESCO Sites, as well as the capital city of Bucharest.
My exclusively designed tours focus on culture and local traditions, architecture, World Heritage Sites, recent history & politics and nevertheless, the changes that occurred in Romania since the fall of Communism. I operate Romania private tours both for the independent traveler and for small groups. Most of the tours are tailor made based on the interest, time and budget of the travelers.
Come get acquainted to the beauty of mythical Transylvania with its mediaeval castles, vineyards and pastures, picturesque and colorful Saxon villages and unique fortified churches. Visit the places related to the life and myth of Vlad the Impaler, better known as Dracula. Upper Transylvania, a region known as Maramures is a place of almost unbelievable beauty, unspoiled traditions and marvelous wood architecture and crafts.You will meet with local artists in the homes and local markets, witness traditions and enjoy a home hosted dinner.
Then, the northern area of Bucovina, famous both for its scenery and for the 15th century outside frescoed monasteries, now part of the UNESCO World Heritage, is a must for any traveler to Romania.
The southern province of Wallachia has gems of architecture: monasteries and former princely residencies. It is here that the Brancovan style was developed. Any tour will start or end in Bucharest, a vibrant and cosmopolitan capital of 2.2 million, known in the past as the Paris of the East. Mixed architecture - a reflection of various times and political systems, the second largest building in the world, a great many Parisian aspects and a charming Village Museum are only some of the attractions of this both controversial and attractive city.
As quality is very important for me, I work with hand picked hotels only. I am proud to be able to provide some of the best English speaking tour guides in the country as well as in Bulgaria and Hungary. I have my own transportation, both sedans and minivans. I offer the best value for money on the market.
NO hidden costs to the tours.
Lots of US and International reference to be provided on request.
2017 The Romanian Rhapsody Private Tour - The Original
Latest Customer's Opinions:
We could not have had a better tour! Andrei planned a wonderful two day tour that was the highlight of our 12 day cruise through the Black Sea. We stayed busy the entire time, had the opportunity to try traditional Romanian food, and saw spectacular sights from the Peles Castle to the Palace of Parliament and the Village Museum as well as the streets of Bucharest.
We feel planning private tours offer a much better experience and value than taking tours arranged by the cruise lines which often become the equivalent of herding cats trying to satisfy 50 people on a bus. We see more in less time and it always more enjoyable.
