An excellent trip with places to hike and see, friendly and helpful people and fantastic hosts and guides. (more)Emma Cowen
The whole trip was memorable but I loved the walk in the snow and rain at the top of a mountain. Brilliant. (more)Julie Topliss
Walking in the Carpathian Mountains was stunning. Watching bear and wild boar at close quarters and visiting the bear sanctuary was definitely one of the highlights. Gaining an insight into the history of Romania by visiting castles, fortified churches and local towns was also fascinating. (more)Alison Mitchell

There were many highlights - the meals together with the guests, the morning tours and the set up of the room. (more)Nehal Vora
the locale was wonderful - very peaceful and a beautiful peek into a different way of life. (more)Ilana Trachtenberg
The peace and tranquillity of this beautiful valley was stunning. All the staff and guides - particularly Gabo - were friendly and knowledgeable, and did their utmost to make us feel comfortable and at home. Just fantastic, we would like to return to appreciate this special place at another time of year, probably spring or autumn. (more)Clio Whittaker

Sighisoara and Sibiu was the highlight. (more)Margaret Garman
Hard to choose! Romania has beautiful scenery, a very interesting history and some of the friendliest people I've ever come across. As a history fan, climbing the 1480 stairs to Poenari Castle (Vlad the Impaler's actual castle) was the highlight. (more)Rebecca Sweeney
Romania walking holiday, Along the Enchanted Way tour
From
£1,945

Memorable parts? The doable yet challenging (for me) walks combined with cultural learning. Experiencing the remote villages, lifestyle and food in local accommodation. Sharing it with two terrific guides and a small group of companionable people. Tips? Pack light, take a hat and a good pair of boots and be prepared to soak up a the traditional culture and the magnificent vistas Romania has to offer. Local benefits? I would like to think it did via the local accommodation... (more)Helen Wildash
Transylvania self-drive holiday in Romania
From
£795

Memorable parts? My kids definitely vote for floating in the salt lakes (which were flooded old roman salt mines) just north of Sibui, Transylvania Tips? Huge benefit in the use of a local guide to walk around Sibui. Be aware that around Brasov (particularly Bran Castle) is very busy and full of tourists during the summer. Local benefits? I hope so! The bear sanctuary at Zarnesti particularly appreciated the support of visitors in order to afford to run their sanctuary for... (more)Vikki Wall

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
A really perfect holiday for us. Snow, countryside, interesting history and culture. Lots to see and do. (more)Vanessa Jefferys
Excellent...The stay at the guest house- amazing! The staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble at all. The tour guides were outstanding. (more)Margaret Da costa

We went for the castles and culture, but it's the people that made our trip, especially our amazing guide Ben. We also loved the accommodation choices - the library in Richis was a highlight. (more)Jo Heaton
Staying at casa Ana and experiencing a traditional Christmas was amazing. Siebel was snow covered and delightful and the walk up to the monastery on Christmas Day through the forest was wonderful. (more)Danyalle Brinsmead
So many wonderful memories, but probably amongst the highest the beautiful panoramic views of rolling hills and valleys in Maramures, staying with local people, marvelling at the painted monasteries, and visiting the Brown bear sanctuary. (more)Lindsey Tester

Having a very knowledgeable and... (more)gillian simpson

Memorable parts? Every day was a new adventure, with both scheduled and unscheduled visits to beautiful countryside, local arts, crafts and sights and fascinating characters, all made possible by our amazing guide. There was never a dull moment. For me, speaking in German to Herr Schaas in Richis, and actually meeting William Blacker (whose book inspired me to visit this beautiful and fascinating country) were the absolute highlights. Tips? Be prepared to go off-piste and have... (more)Hazel Bailey

From
£1,875
excluding flights
The most memorable was sailing on the Danube Delta, Bran and Pale Castles. Very good; it covers a wide variety of activities from the Bucharest Parliament tour to the Danube Delta trip. (more)Matthew Kennon
The homestays, a genuine insight into Romanian village life and much nicer than character - less hotel chains. Good variety of things to see/visit amid wonderful scenery and, in May, glorious flowering trees/shrubs which are a vivid memory. (more)Hilary Way
Visiting the danbue delta was the most memorable. (more)Helene Leis

The evening we sat on a hilltop in the sunshine and watched several bears doing their thing was the highlight. (more)Jon Holland

Transylvania holiday, Romania
From
€1,105
excluding flights
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

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

Discover Transylvania holiday
From
€118
excluding flights
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
