About
We offer you a well balanced round trip, starting from Bucharest, with a little bit of everything included: breathtaking scenery, fairytale castles, amazing ruins, historical places, monuments and, as much as possible, interaction with the locals. Book this tour if you want to learn what, when, where and why about Romania. We will show you all the must-see attractions, but our speciality are the many sights most other tour operators don't include in their set route. Please note: We don't do shared tours, we only do private tours. If you'd like to travel together with a bunch of strangers, each one with his own agenda, pace and his good or bad habits, there are plenty of other travel agents out there happy to accommodate you. Anyway, a private tour doesn't necessarily mean an expensive tour. Please take a moment to review our prices. You'll find private tours at the price of a shared tour or cheaper!

          Excellent
          I recently participated in a group photography trip to gypsy villages in Transylvania led and guided by Adrian. Beyond his vast knowledge, interesting explanations and understanding of our needs and expectations as photographers, it turned out that he is a man with a broad heart, being supportive and helping each of us with every request and every need. It is with great pleasure that I state that he has a big part in the success of our trip and I wholeheartedly recommend him and vouch for him.

          Photo tour to the gypsy comunity in Transilvania
          Adrian was the tour guide for our photography group. The tour was unusual, it was a photo tour to the gypsy villages of Transylvania. From our first telephone conversation before the tour I knew that Adrian understands very well what we, as photographers, are interested in seeing and that this is not a tourist trip but a tour that seeks to explore the gypsy community in Romania in an authentic way. Adrian had a crucial part in the success of the tour, from choosing the accommodation and meals to his extensive connections with the local community. And the most important thing: the personal attitude to each of the participants and the help of all the tour managers were amazing. I highly recommend exploring and discover the wonderful Romania with the help of Adrian, you will not find another experienced guide like him. Gilad ben shats Gilad.bs@gmail.com

          Absolutely wonderful
          We spent about 10 days with Adrian touring areas in Romania and Bulgaria and the whole trip was amazing. Adrian is a perfect tour organizer and guide. He is so kind and thoughtful, and really adds a personal touch to everything about the trip. He gets to know you and offers interesting and unique experiences that make his tours truly one-of-a-kind. Starting out, he had the van well stocked with bottles of water - still and sparkling - along with tissues and lots of other travel essentials that came in handy. After a few days of my husband ordering Coke Zero everywhere we ate, a stock of Coke Zero showed up in the van cooler. Adrian knows so much about the area and its history. I felt like spending a week traveling around with him probably taught me more about Romanian history and culture than you’d learn in a semester college course on the same topic. Adrian clearly works hard to come up with unique and authentic experiences for the guests on his tours, but does so in a way that is organic and comfortable - not contrived. Not only does he take you to the classic sites (Bran Castle, the Black Church, etc.) he will add out-of-the-way places that fit your interests. We got to see traditional coppersmithing, blacksmithing, and pottery making and went to a jam tasting along with a couple of charming traditional dinners in Romania and Bulgaria. Spending time with locals in their homes were some of the most memorable parts of the trip. Adrian is a truly charming person who goes out of his way to make sure you enjoy your trip. Do yourself a HUGE favor and book a trip with him. My best advice is to be honest about what is important to you and what you’re looking for. He give you just what you’re looking for if you let him know what that is - are you on a budget? Would you rather pay a little more for a more comfortable hotel or better restaurants? How far do you want to walk? How often do you need to stop for food or restrooms? If you are looking for a truly customized experience, look no further! Adrian will be your new favorite guide. You’ll love Romania almost as much as Adrian.

          Incredibly knowledgeable and kind guide that showed me so much of Bucharest in a short time!
          This was a really wonderful tour! Adrian was kind, extremely knowledgeable and helpful, punctual and an excellent communicator. I learned SO much about the history of Romania from him and got to see so much in the short time I had! I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about Bucharest and it’s fascinating past! Adrian showed me sites I never would have known to visit and was incredibly informative!

          A beautiful day at Sinaia
          We had a very interesting day. Adrian's knowledge of the history & the culture of his country is amazing. Well in time to pick us up , safe drive to Sinaia and back. The Peles Palace is very impressive to visit. Don't miss the Pelisor Palace - situated at a walking distance ( 200 m) of the first Palace. Adrian - thanks a lot for this experience.

          Great trip with a great guide
          We have just returned from an instructive and extremely interesting tour to Romania. Thanks to our local guide Adrian's deep knowledge, motivation and connections, we were able to gain deep insights into the rich history and culture as well as daily life. Adrian's ability to always be a step ahead understand, respect and attend to everybody's needs and wishes turned the trip into a unique experience. His professionalism, sensitivity, warm and friendly personality, and witty sense of humor makes him an exceptional and highly recommended tour guide to Romania. Lion Family

          Adrian,excellent tour guide
          Hi. I participated with a group in a trip in Romania last October 2022 under the guidance of Adrian. Adrian is a very professional and excellent tour guide and speaks excellent English. Adrian took care of the whole group and each one individually. He is a listening ear and was always with us. He left a very deep impression on me and the whole group. I highly recommend him.Tsipi,Israel.

          An unforgettable travel experience with a charismatic and unique local guide
          Adrian Ene, our amazing Romanian guide was totally proactive and facilitating: anticipating every requirement of our group and of each and every individual. His total fluency with the English language and his readiness to answer every question, made it easy even for non native English speakers to understand every aspect of each site along the way. But above all Adrian's superb sense of humor and his endless energy, made even the long stretches between visitor sites so much more pleasant. If you plan a visit to Romania, in order to go home; with great memories and delicious authentic tastes on your palate, this is the guide you want!

          We took the trip last month and we had the most remarkable tour with Adrian. Not only everything was perfect, but we felt, in every instance, that he truly cared about us, and did his best to make this trip memorable

          A very enjoyable and successful visit that turned into a unique experience with Adrian's help
          We spent in an organized group with Adrian for 9 nights all over Romania. Adrian has an impressive personality and he is much more than a tour guide. He has deep and impressive knowledge, a professional attitude, social skills and boundless kindness.

          The best way to explore Bukarest (and beyond)
          If you are lucky enough to visit Bucharest, I would recommend you to book a guided tour with Adrian Ene, be it for half a day or several days, but also if you are planning a longer tour through the whole country and would like to have an interested, super friendly and very competent guide with you. Adrian speaks great English, is extremely reliable and when you drive with him through the city, he always has something to tell. I was lucky to meet Adrian when he was escorting international guests around the city for the One World Film Festival. And I look forward to meeting him again for sure the next time I come to Bucharest (and I certainly will!).

        From what I saw on the internet I was not interested in visiting Peles Palace but our guide convinced us to have a look. We were so glad we did. It is a wonderful place with an interesting history. Bran Castle continued the story from Peles Palace with the Royal Family. Brasov old town is a lovely town with some of its 14-15th Century walls and town still intact. We could have spent a couple of days there.

        Adrian picked the 4 of us up at our hotel for the day.
        This trip was about going to Dracula Castle.
        He was there well before the pick-up time of 9am, which was great as he was waiting for us with a smile. This is a full day tour which lasted from 9am - 11pm.
        Adrian spoke excellent English and began pointing out important buildings and history. He had a wealth of knowledge, jokes and a great sense of humor. We stopped in many locations. Had lunch and dinner together.
        The 4 of us had just finished a 15 day river cruise of the Viking Long Boat and we all agreed this was the best part of our entire trip.
        Adrian is very interested in knowing what and where you want to go and he'll make it happen.
        Book Adrian, and you won't be disappointed.

        We had the opportunity for the one-day trip to Sinaia , Sinaia monastery, Peles, Bran and Brasov last September. Andrian organized everything, he was an excellent guide, giving us detailed information about the places we visited, the historical details as well as modern life. He was very interested in making us feel comfortable and enjoy the trip. He was always trying to anticipate our wishes and satisfy them. We had the feeling that we were traveling with a friend. Next time we visit Romania we will pursue to have Andrian as our guide.
