Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
We are committed to playing our part through caring for the places and communities that we visit. We will continue to work with our suppliers to deliver a responsible product and quality performance.

This tour offers you a well rounded Transylvanian experience, introducing you to Transylvania’s finest scenery and folklore and providing you with the possibility of getting in contact with the genuine peasant culture by exploring rural areas, the work shops of famous artists and craftsmen, visiting museums or landscapes made famous in the Romanian literature.

Furthermore, our tour guides are well-educated multilingual people who can offer guests their advice about what each of our guest can do, during their trip, in order to minimize the impact for the environment and as an interpreter, offer insights on current regional issues: have a recyclable garbage bag and that the waste will be disposed only on the special arranged areas. Learn a few Romanian words and phrases - included in our pre-trip information pack.

A part of the money that is paid for the tickets, goes towards the rehabilitation of the sites that we are visiting.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Clients are encouraged to support local craftsmanship and traditional methods of production by purchasing handcrafted souvenirs in shops at the Dracula's Castle. These goods are largely wood carvings and textiles.
During our tours we use to make a stop at a local guesthouse which has a small farm for a cheese tasting and/or an eco-lunch with local products. They can visit the farm and/or to participate to the daily activities, as milking the animals or cutting the grass. In this way they have a perspective about the conditions of living in this areas and they understand how important is to respect their lifestyle.

"Before you travel, find out a bit more about Romania’s cultures, religion, history, politics, geography and customs. Read our general information pack and detailed itinerary of your chosen tour destinations. Libraries are also great places to find more information and find travel books for Romania.

Learn a few Romanian words and phrases - included in our pre-trip information pack. For those of you who want to take it a step further, language courses can be ordered from most libraries.

Support the local economies so that the money generated stays in the communities you are visiting: Buy locally made handicrafts and locally produced foods (mostly organic). Where possible (and mostly it is) we advise and arrange for our guests to stay in locally run country-inns or hotels.
