Overview

Book
From the beautiful Baroque churches of Budapest to the haunted castles of Transylvania, this ten-day journey across Hungary and Romania provides a fascinating insight into an intriguing region. Learn about the failed Turkish invasion of Eger and take a wine cellar tour in the Valley of the Beautiful Women. Become acquainted with traditional Romanian culture and customs in Maramures. Tour the medieval churches of Brasov, dine with a local family on an overnight homestay in Viscri and visit Bucharest's 12-storey Palace of Parliament. This jam-packed journey makes for a perfect introduction to two Eastern European treasures.

Highlights

    • Sample the famous Hungarian 'bulls blood' in Eger, the wine that supposedly gave the Hungarian army supernatural strength during their battle against the Ottoman Empire
    • Experience peasant life on a full-day tour through the countryside of Maramures, Romania's most traditional and colourful region. Don't be surprised if you see horse-drawn carts along the road
    • Learn spooky stories while travelling through beautiful Transylvania, famous for its medieval fortified churches and as the birthplace of the inspiration for the world's most famous vampire, Dracula
    • A home-stay with a local family in the Saxon/Roma town of Viscri will expose you to Romanian hospitality and some finger-licking home-cooked grub
    • Delve into the communist past and the thriving, artistic present-day vibe of Bucharest, a city often underrated by travellers

This was my 9th trip and I am looking toward my 10th with a big discount! I have travelled alone and with friends. This particular group was very congenial and cohesive and I really enjoyed them very much. It made the trip great fun. It has so many destinations to choose from that it makes me want to run off and discover somewhere new every month but of course I can't. Keep up the good work.

I loved this trip and would highly recommend it for anyone interested in history or the charm of Eastern Europe. Vlad is an incredible guide and I'm so thankful for getting to travel with him.

A study in contrasts: castles and medieval towns; rugged stone churches and dazzling monasteries; pristine landscapes of Rocky Mountains and rolling hills; towns stepped back in time, with overloaded horse drawn carts sharing highways with speeding cars; cities with hidden. Gardens and quirky cafes, where rows of regal ruins stand side by side with gleaming new office buildings.

The whole trip was amazing! Romania in particular was my favorite. Make sure you give yourself a few extra days at the end in Istanbul because there's A LOT to see and do.

The tour guides are the agency's greatest asset. They have extensive knowledge of the local language and culture so you are really getting to travel with a local. There is a great mix of planned activities and free time, and knowing that the logistics are taken care of leave you more time to enjoy your travels.

They take you to some unique, enlightening, and delightful places and they handle of all the complicated logistics for you. That alone is a good enough reason to recommend them, but they also seem to hire very competent and personable guides, so I can emphatically recommend them.
