Exclusive Cultural Connections & Programs: a Window into the Romanian Culture
With over 20 years of real expertise in designing and running private tours, we are proud to offer uncommon, exclusive cultural connections and insights into a relatively unknown part of Europe which is now being rediscovered. Meeting with local people and learning about their lifes, the hands-on activities, the off-the-beaten track sights, the visits to colorful markets, learning about life in Communism and witnessing the changes, as well as the handicraft demonstrations and the exclusively organized folklore performances, are all part of our programs. We take great pride in our home visits and home hosted meals which are best way for an authentic cultural interchange.

Our Tour Guides
While they are all licensed and speak excellent English, their mission is to offer an ”insider's perspective” on the places you are visiting. For instance, *life under Communism* is one of the most interesting topics and they are all able to develop on this as they lived through it. We only work with hand picked, experienced and resourceful freelance guides having a deep knowledge of the country, history, architecture and local customs. We feel sure that you will enjoy their company and benefit from their knowledge. All our driving tour guides have a clean driving record.
Are mostly from North America, Australia and South East Asia and come from every walk of life. Most are retired but well traveled and having a particular interest in this part of the World.
Press Reviews & Tour References
For many years we are enjoying excellent tour reviews. We have consulted for both Frommer's and Fodor's. Our recent Travel Channel interview as well as the many travel articles over the past years such as in ITN magazine or Travel Weekly, stand proof of the quality we like to offer.
