Transylvania holidays

Spurious Dracula links distract from a region you really will want to sink teeth into. Transylvania holidays wonderfully combine spellbinding nature with rich traditions combining Romanian, Hungarian and Roma influences. The distinctive ranges of the Carpathians create a hiking paradise of alpine meadows and amazing karst geology, while towns like Brasov, Sighisoara and Sibiu are vivid medieval time capsules oozing vibrant cosmopolitan charm.

Transylvania winter holiday accommodation
The peaceful ambience was the thing that will stay with me - although there was also so much excitement of course on the tours, new year's eve party etc. For a city dweller it was the perfect way to unwind and 'get away from it all. (more)Tom Cooper-Jones

Absolutely excellent, awesome experience, briliant hospitality from the local agent and excellent guiding. Very good accomodation that exceeded our expectations. Very friendly group of travellers that really gelled through the holiday. Will certainly be considering other holidays from this operator for the future. Our 16 year old daughter had a brilliant time too. (more)Stephen Miller
An excellent holiday, a good destination and range of activities. One of the best group holidays I have been on, everyone got on well from the start... I would say that the holiday was sensitive to the environment and local culture and gave a good insight into rural Romania. (more)Sheila Knight

Halloween tour in Transylvania
Memorable parts? We felt that the whole Transylvanian experience was memorable, especially seeing the Castles and also the Halloween party was amazing. I have never experienced a Halloween quite like it ever before, just wished more people had dressed up . Tips? Just to go with an opened mind, Expect a lot of travelling and not a lot of free time to yourselves , but experience an amazing country with fantastic scenery, lots of culture and history. Having a very knowledgeable and... (more)gillian simpson

There were 3 distinct parts to the holiday - first the Saxon Villages & Churches in Transylvania (staying in Viscri was a highlight), then to beautiful Maramures with the wooden Churches (Popica Farm was another memorable place to stay) & finally to Bucovina with its stunning painted monasteries. (more)Caroline Bott

Family holiday in Romania, tailor made
Memorable parts? To quote my son, when asked the same question... I liked all of it!! However, if I have to chose particular moments... Getting a feel for the rhythm of village life on a glorious spring morning in Biertan, taking an evening stroll alongside the locals in Brasov and making it to the top of the 1426 steps (my younger son counted!) to see the view from Poienari Citadel. Tips? We went to Romania in Spring and I would recommend going there at Easter (which is a little... (more)Jo Murray

Cultural tours to Transylvania, Romania
Absolutely amazing. The company who ran the tour were incredible- friendly, helpful, they bent over backwards to make sure I had everything I needed. My guide had incredible knowledge and was so friendly and helpful... I could not recommend this more highly! (more)Shellie May
I enjoyed all of it, I have to say. In particular, visiting Sighisoara and Sibiu brings back nice memories. Sighisoara for the medieval experience and the luck of arriving there in the middle of a festival. (more)Roxana Radulescu
From 1090 - 1398 excluding flights
Romania holidays, Transylvania to the Danube Delta
Memorable parts? Discovering the countryside of Romania. We travelled with a very knowledgeable guide who loved his country and had a great wealth of knowledge. As we did mostly homestays we felt we had a real insight into the country. Very memorable was picking enormous mushrooms from the fields and our guide cooking them for us that evening. Tips? There is a lot of travelling but it is worth it. Expect to have great experiences, good food, excellent wine, heaps of history and... (more)Susan Groves

Transylvania walking and nature holiday in Romania
The most knowledgeable guide I have ever had the privilege to meet, the stunning natural beauty, and the complete detachment from my day to day city life. (more)Paul Kearney
It was wonderful. I was able to explore the scenery, the history and even meet some of the local people. The small number of people made the tours feel much more personal and the staff were warm and friendly. (more)Elizabeth Long
There were several very memorable aspects to my holidays. The walks/hikes and scenery in Romania was absolutely fantastic. I have never seen anything like it before.The scenery was stunning and the wild life even more stunning. (more)Sue Jennings

Transylvania holiday, Romania
Memorable parts? Romania is a very beautiful country and it was exciting to visit it in spring when everything was in bloom and the landscape was turning to green. It was also wonderful to be outside of Bucaresti and we feel that we got a better picture of everything because we were able to see places like Sigisoara and Sibiu. Tips? You must be prepared for both the poverty and the astounding amount of garbage and rubbish that is everywhere. Hotels were generally good although the... (more)Anne Letain
From 995 - 1480 excluding flights
Discover Transylvania holiday
Memorable parts? The hike to the ridge to see the shepherds. Tips? Stay for as long as possible at Zalanpatak, which is the most remote location but has the best food and the most helpful staff. Miklosvar is also a good location but one got the feeling that the staff were not really that "interested". Horse riding is only possible for older / experienced riders. Local benefits? Conversations with our guide certainly improved our awareness of some of the conservation issues.... (more)Nigel Kieser
