          Marcel, our host, for our 4 day trip, gave us a fantastic experience. Nicely paced, extremely knowledgeable about history and also a good sense of humour. Great company combined with a beautiful & diverse country made this a most memorable trip.

          Unforgettable Transylvania tour
          We had an amazing bespoke tour of Transylvania with our fabulous guide Traian. We visited Bran Castle, Brasov, Sibiu, Cluj, Sighisoara and the salt mines at Turda. We stayed in hotels in Brasov and Cluj. The one in Brasov was absolutely beautiful. Traian took us to great places for lunch (two of which we had outside in the sunshine - in February), and made some superb recommendations for restaurants in the evening - even managing to get the four of us into one of the best restaurants in Brasov on Valentines night (which we had completely forgotten about). The trip was absolutely fantastic. One we will never forget. And for four days tour (including admittance fees), three nights accommodation, very comfortable transport, and a local and knowledgeable guide with perfect English, we felt the cost was really excellent value for money.

          Personalized journey to Transylvania
          Nicu Apostol and Iulian Aruxandei arranged a four-days trip around Transylvania for me and I can only praise their efficiency and professionalism. Visiting Transylvania's castles and medieval cities is something I wanted to do since a long time, but my vacation days are limited, so travelling solo by train, for example, wouldn't have allowed me to see so much in a few days. My guide was Marcel and I was blown away by his knowledge of history, culture and infinite fun facts, not only about the main tour destinations but also about places we were driving through. We also had to deal with the weather and winter-schedule limitations, but if we couldn't make it somewhere, I was proposed an alternative, which was at least as nice as what was initially planned. This way I visited places I would'nt have seen otherwise and had the opportunity to exchange with local people. In summary: Rolandia is great if you want to visit Romania, you can fully rely on their team to organize the tour of your dreams.

          Exceeded Expectations on Every Level
          The tour company is outstanding. Everything was excellent from Airport transfers to our guide Marcel. The company was extremely helpful prior to the trip; answering promptly and completely and securing an extra night for us at the end and ensuring we could stay in the same room. Airport transfers were extremely smooth, even our 3 AM pick up for our return flight. The drivers were polite, the car was spotless and they were on time. The itinerary was amazing showing us the beauty and diversity of the country, from natural wonders, castles, churches, small villages and beautiful historic cities and towns. A perfect route and selection of the many of the best things to do and see. The tour is packed with sights, views and beautiful drives. The only downside is that you are only in a hotel for one night but it is the only way to see as much as we did in 10 days. The hotels were 4 star, unique and located in the perfect location. Our guide, Marcel Ene is a gem. He made the trip perfect in everyway. He was knowledgeable, funny, courteous, helpful and engaging. He told us personal stories to help us gain a deeper understand of the culture, the people and the country. It was like touring with a friend, which he was by the end of the tour. The company and guide pay attention to details to make sure that everything about the trip is memorable and perfect. Romania and Rolandia should be on your bucket list.

          One of the best tour in Romania.
          What a trip. Small group tour. Only 7 of us. The guide/driver Sebastian is very friendly and informative. The view will last forever.

          Highly Recommended Rolandia for Romanian Travels
          We did the 'Eight days tour of Romania starting from Budapest to Bucharest.' We decided on this tour because after doing our research we felt this provided a variety of experiences within Romania to experience the geography, history, and people. Between the initial booking and the tour start, we had to make some changes which Rolandia responded to professionally and promptly. Our guide for the 8 days was Traian and he was absolutely wonderful. It seemed there wasn't a question he couldn't answer and he has so much knowledge about Romanian history and geography. We felt so safe driving with him and made the trip special. He was also able to help us feel at ease and handle the process for border crossing and hotel check-ins. Even for busy roads or traffic jams he made the journey fun. The private tour costs a bit more but if you are going with a partner, family, or small group it's well worth the consideration. Romania is quite a wonderful destination and if you go, seriously look into Rolandia.

          Bucket list tour
          Absolutely a “bucket list” tour for sure! Our guide Ann spoke perfect English, was prompt every morning picking us from our comfortable hotel and was professional and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of all castles, monasteries and villages! Driving from one scenic location to the next was comfortable in our air conditioned sedan. Can’t thank Ann and Rolandia Tours enough for a trip which certainly is a highlight of all our years of travelling. Will recommend to anyone we know to travel through Romania with Rolandia tours and request our fabulous guide Ann if available. Truly grateful for a fabulous 4 days done perfectly right

          Worth doing this 4 day tour!
          I cannot be more satisfied with this tour. Impecably organized but at the same time our guide Traian gave us the chance to make choices according to our preferences. Very intense tour due to the variety of activities, nevertheless Traian stayed always with us, something that I cannot say happened in other tours I have taken. Furthermore: what an awesome driver he was!!! All in all, it was a beautiful experience that I recommend wholeheartedly with Rolandia. Nicu will answer all your questions promptly. If I have to advise the readers I would say "take your time, and do the 4 days Transylvania experience . Immerse yourself into the culture, the landscapes, the tradition. It is so worthy!

          Amazing tour of Transylvania
          First time travelling on my own and first time in Romania. I wanted to see some of the country and could not have selected a better tour, It was a full on 3 days and I got to see some amazing parts of Romania. This trip was fantastic. From historic monuments to beautiful natural sights, this trip had it all. Tavi our guide was excellent and I also got to meet some other amazing travellers. Cannot recommend this tour enough. Don’t hesitate, book it!

          Great experience in Romania
          Just 2 of us on the tour with our excellent guide Emil who was passionate and very knowledgeable about his country, it's history and culture. He made sure we had a great time seeing all the sights and even made a couple of suggestions which we did in addition to the planned itinerary. Seeing bears on the last day was an unexpected and very memorable bonus!

          Our guide, Diana, was super. She kept in communication with us and was on time for the tour. We enjoyed both castles, and Diana translated for us when needed. She was happy to take photos for us and was flexible with the tour. Wine tasting with the Carpathian Mountains in the background was spectacular!

          “Dracula Beyond the Legend” Tour Highly Recommended
          We cannot speak highly enough about how great our Rolandia “Dracula Beyond the Legend” tour was with our guide Marcel in July/August 2023. Marcel spoke incredible English and was immensely knowledgeable about Romanian history, culture, religion, traditions and its flora, fauna, wildlife and geography. He was also an excellent driver and knew exactly how to make the most of every sight and location. We cannot believe how much we saw and experienced; Marcel was dedicated, excited to show off his country’s impressive culture and landscapes, and absolutely indefatigable in terms of energy. We had an absolutely wonderful time and we highly recommend Rolandia’s tours to anyone and everyone. We felt most privileged to see Romania through Marcel’s eyes and cannot imagine any better way to experience this beautiful and richly cultured country. In addition to all the spectacular sights (Bran Castle, Peles Castle, and Sibiu were among our all-time favs, but honestly there are too many highlights to name), we also got to see brown bears up close in Transylvania! Highly recommended!

          Memorable trip, highly recommended
          We had a lovely time in Transylvania and I would highly recommend it. Emil was a great guide, very knowledgeable and very considerate. He kept us on schedule throughout the trip and tried to accommodate any additional requests. Transylvania is absolutely stunning and Emil suggested we take the cable car ride over the Carpathian mountains since it was open. Then we saw the bears on the way down the mountains. The trip is quite intense with time in the evenings to either relax or go exploring. The hotels we stayed in were also really lovely. Rolandia also allowed us to book a family room for 3 of us and gave us a small discount on the price. The only thing I would say is food was alot more expensive than I would have expected because we were in tourist areas so maybe do a bit of research before hand if you need to keep costs down.

          An Eye-Opening Wonder
          We had a wonderful adventure on this tour, with our excellent and friendly guide, Laurentiu. We never saw so many sunflowers in our lives and the Carpathians were breathtaking. As we wondered, our knowledgeable guide brought the history of the region to life, helping us picture what life was and in many cases, still is like there. We particularly loved Sighisoara and Sibiu -- they are living, breathing medieval towns -- vibrant and fascinating. From the ruins of Vlad's court in Targoviste, to the amazing Black Church in Brasov, to Corvin Castle, Romania was an eye-opening wonder for us. In addition, the people that we interacted with were open and kind, with a good grasp of English, and we enjoyed the European ease of dining whenever you want, and everything was fresh. It was a fabulous trip!

          Romania is truly amazing
          This trip delivered far more than we expected. We had a private tour of 3 couples and would highly recommend travelling this way. Email and phone Communications with Iliuan were excellent. All of our questions were promptly and professionally answered. Our guide - Laurentiu was fantastic. He had a great sense of humour and great wealth of knowledge and clearly very proud of his wonderful country. Nothing was too much for Laurentiu. We had a private transfer to Sibiu to catch an international flight after our trip. Our driver Radu was also excellent - he took us to Sibiu to explore, to save us waiting for hours at the international airport. Our only regret is that we did not have longer to explore. We hope to return to Romania very soon.

        We booked a private 8 day tour of Romania with Rolandia Tours and they did a fabulous job of making sure we had the best time ever!! They lined us up with a Tour Guide name Laurentiu. He was fantastic!!! He was extremely knowledgable of all the places we visited throughout Romania. It was all natural for him and it was not scripted and he knew the history of each sight. He was very laid back and was never in a rush. He had a great personality and a good sense of humor. He made our entire trip fun and interesting. He took us to all of the main sights on our itinerary, as well as some off the beaten path sights. We got a true understanding and feeling of what life in Romania is all about. The hotels they booked us in were all conveniently located to all of the main attractions and were all unique boutique type hotels. Lauentui knew where all the great restaurants were along the way and we ate like kings and the food was excellent. Romania is a vast and beautiful country. Everything ran smooth and was perfect. We had the best time anyone could ever ask for. We would highly recommend Rolandia and Laurentiu for all your travel needs throughout Romania.

        We were traveling to Romania for our son’s wedding and wanted to learn and explore as much as possible the week before. We took the small group Classic Romanian Tour and we would highly recommend this tour. It is a well-organized fast paced tour covering a lot of the country but you are never bored with interesting stops, beautiful scenery and a wonderful tour guide -Alex-who is kind, incredibly knowledgeable, great driver and willing to put up with our endless stream of questions. The hotels were perfectly situated for exploring and comfortable with good breakfasts. Romania is a beautiful country with a long and complicated history this tour is a great introduction and you will be in good hands with Rolandia.

        My teen son and I had a wonderful time on this tour! The other group canceled, so we actually got a private tour. Our guide, Marcel, did a fabulous job of explaining the scenery and culture of the country. He also had really interesting information about the different regions of Romania and how they have been influenced by the varying historical influences. I would highly recommend a trip to Romania, the group Rolandia and our guide, Marcel

        This was our very first time visiting Romania. My husband and I are from the United States and we only speak English so this trip was definitely out of our comfort zone.

        We first booked our tour for September 2020. We found the perfect tour, it was incredibly easy to book and the price was amazing. I studied the itinerary and it had everything we wanted to do. Between the summer of 2020 and our actual tour in August 2021 we had to reschedule twice due to Covid-19 and travel restrictions. Rescheduling was made so easy and we never had to pay more to reschedule. Everytime I had questions or concerns about traveling to Romania from the United States my emails were answered within 24 hours.

        We were provided with transportation to and from the airport. This was a pleasant surprise since we arrived four days before the tour and left five days after the tour ended. The hotels we stayed at were perfect. They were very nice hotels with large comfortable rooms. We even changed our hotel in Bucharest for our last five nights to the hotel we stayed at on the first day of our tour. That's how much we loved it.

        The places we visited on the tour and the activities that were planned were even more amazing that i could have ever imagined. It was the small details that made our trip to Romania so memorable. I have so many magical memories from our tour but these are my top 5:

        The amazing dinner we had to celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary. We had a table under the stars where we experienced a little bit of rain (the only rain we had in 15 days) for luck on our marriage and they had a band come in and play. The music and songs were so beautiful. We saw a traditional dance and my husband and I were asked to join. Between the delicious food and drinks, music and dancing, and the great company it will be a night I will never forget.

        Going to the Turda Salt Mine was an experience like none other. The first time you see it will leave you breathless. We walked down into the main area where they have different things you can do. Then we walked down even further below to see the lake at the bottom of the salt mine. You can even rent a boat to take out on the lake. We rode the Ferris wheel and it was the perfect way to see all of the salt mine.

        The different churches and monasteries we were able to visit were so full of history and beauty. They really show off the history of religion throughout the country. The art and décor is absolutely stunning.

        Peles Castle was by far my favorite. It is absolutely breathtaking. It is so beautiful and it is still fully furnished. You are able to tour the castle and really imagine what it would have been like to live there. You could spend all day wandering from room to room just looking at everything. The outside of the castle is just as stunning.

        The tour of Bucharest was so informative. We were shown so many important locations throughout the city and learned so much about Romania's history. We got to take a walking tour where more of Romania's history was explained to us. The tour did a great job setting the tone for the rest of our tour.

        I can't say enough good things about this tour. We learned Romania's history, we met the most amazing people and created memories that will last a lifetime. After this trip Romania will always hold a special place in my heart.

        Florin was our tour guide. I don't think there is a word that can truly describe how amazing he is. I like to think of him as the Dream Maker because he makes dreams come true.

        He is so knowledgeable, pretty sure he knows everything, and will always answer your questions. He is so passionate about what he does and it shines through him. Florin was always willing to share what he knows with us.

        Florin always had great stories about the places we went and things we saw. He made taking in all of the information interesting and fun. Every single day I always had a huge smile on my face because he made sure we were always having fun. There was never a dull moment and he made us feel very comfortable the whole time.

        I told Florin I had always wanted to see a brown bear in the Carpathian Mountains and we saw 2! Florin made it possible for me to watch a cow be milked and her newborn calf fed. He took us to a blacksmith where he was able to speak to the blacksmith to have a special item made for me that I had told Florin I really wanted. I will never forget the 'Penguin House' or the great stories on 'the Bridge of Lies'. He told us about Electric Castle and we were able to experience that concert for free.

        I could write a book on our trip and all of the information that we learned. Rolandia and Florin made my dream trip come true. Anyone who has the pleasure of taking this tour and hitting the jackpot getting Florin as a tour guide you will not be disappointed and your dreams will come true.

        The Classic Romania tour that I joined in June 2019 was one of the best travelling experiences I've had. There was a group of 8 who, together with Claudia (who was just the best guide imaginable), laughed and drank our way through Romanian towns and villages and forests for 8 wonderful, sunny days. Perhaps we were lucky that we were all so relaxed and well suited; perhaps it was that Claudia was such a knowledgeable and outgoing guide; perhaps Romania is just such a beautiful place; perhaps the accommodation was so well chosen and the food so good; perhaps it was all of those things and more. I recommend this tour without reservation. I'd do it again.

        Five of us were looking to do a pre-cruise tour of Romania. After searching the internet, I took a chance on Rolandia Travel and made an inquiry. I received an immediate response from Ioana with answers to our questions. Over the next few weeks, she continued to provide information and instill confidence to book the Classic Romania tour. Throughout the process Ioana was very responsive, friendly, and professional but most of all she ensured that our needs were met.

        We asked that Val be our tour guide and were very pleased that he could accommodate us. We found Val to be very knowledgeable, informative, professional, and extremely helpful. If you truly want to see Romania this is the guide for you. He kept to the schedule and made sure we didn't miss a thing. He also brought us to the unexpected. We viewed honor guards with exploding cannons, experienced special tastes at local markets and saw an operational still producing the local palinka.

        Please note that some of the drives and the days are long but well worth the effort. We enjoyed stunning views along the Transfagarasan highway and of the beautiful Romanian country side. If you would prefer a more leisurely pace I would add an extra night along the way. We selected four star accommodations and overall they were very good. We found the food to be plentiful and delicious but a bit heavy. I believe we won the lottery with Rolandia as the Classic Romania tour was an exceptional experience and value.

        In a nutshell ROLANDIA is THE BEST - liaise with Ioana and insist on VAL. Do this before everyone else finds out! Went on a private tour with four close friends following the itinerary of the The Classic Tour. Requested upgraded hotels. Everything and much more delivered. Looked after very well and have had one of the best holidays ever; was really sad saying goodbye to VAL. Every day a memory and Val tried to help us all the time eg we needed a trip to the supermarket one evening so he came with us and helped us translate, etc. This is an arduous trip as described, but Rolandia will accommodate changes as requested - ie just tell Ioana you need a slower pace or want to concentrate on certain things and she’ll sort in your itinerary before finalised. I’d recommend a couple of days in one spot near the beginning and near the end tailored to the kind of place you like. Romania is fascinating, interesting, safe and comfortable with Rolandia. They’ll deliver.

        We had a wonderful time in Romania. Even before our trip Ioana assisted us every step of the way from the initial booking and answered all our queries promptly big and small right to the end. Our group included my husband and I together with a family of 3 from USA. Our guide Cristi is very knowledgeable about the history of all the places we visited. He took care of our various needs and introduced us to the cuisines of the different regions of Romania. He showed us little secret places which big tour companies are not likely to bring us. Romania is a beautiful country well worth your time. Thank you very much to Ioana and Cristi for your wonderful Romanian hospitality!
