Private Tours of Romania (13 Replies)
My mother and I have been planning a trip to Romania for over two years now and finally managed to take it in August of 2006. Contrary to some posts and exaggerated opinions we found Romania to be a lovely place, very authentic, a true corner of Old Europe at least in the sense that some of the elderly Americans (with roots in Europe) would have seen it. It is a safe country and that goes for Bucharest too. The highlight of our trip was of course Transylvania which we did not know...More

So I was going to email them tomorrow to book it, BUT i'll look into the hotel a bit more first. I may choose the more expensive hotel as you have given a good reason why the others are so cheap. I did find another website which i can book those hotels and they given a better rundown of the services, but you...More

Does any know of any good private tour companies for a 2-3 day trip from Rome to Pompeii. Most organized tours seem to spend just a half day in Pompeii and we would like to do more Pompeii and Herculanium

Do you require a company that takes care of everything, or would you be open to making your own arrangements for travel and accommodation so you can focus your funds on a private guide at each site (as opposed to a group tour)?
