Tours and Tickets by Romania Private Tours
Overview
My name is Cezarina. I'm a world traveller, a hopeless Epicurean, a dedicated mom and a people lover.

My travels taught me that it's the people who make or break an experience and if you are lucky to meet the right people, your journeys will turn into fond long-lasting memories.

As a born and bred Romanian, passionate about her country, I'm here to offer you just that: a warm long-lasting memory of your visit to Bucharest. You'll be joining my family for a 3 hour dining experience that includes a 3-course meal, paired with local wines. You will sample a rich and humble Romanian cuisine that is blissfully unaware of global food trends. Expect to learn and talk about food, history, traditions and anything in between.

The dinner starts at 6.30 PM and, depending on the flow, it finishes around 9.30 PM. I can cater to most dietary restrictions, provided I am made aware in advance.

So looking forward to meeting you! :)

My husband and I recently traveled through the beautiful country of Romania with Romania Private Tours. We are experienced travelers who frequently plan our own trips and explore on our own. However, after a serendipitous recommendation to this little company, we found ourselves exploring a country we knew so little about and fell in love. Cezarina spoke with us several times to understand what we look for when we travel. For us, it’s all about getting off the beaten path and finding unique, authentic experiences that showcase the local culture, people, and history. Cliché, I know, but this is something difficult to find in today’s tourism industry on any budget. She delivered exactly this in a truly customized 11-day tour from the capital city of Bucharest to mountain hikes, villages, monasteries, castles, and back again through the Transfagarasan highway. Each night’s accommodations were visited and hand-picked prior to our arrival. The activities and meals planned each day were better than the written itinerary could describe. The people! The people we met each day were the hidden gems. This trip allowed us to connect and converse and learn something from each person even with the language difference. Romania Private Tours delivered a private, one-of-a-kind experience that will always come to top of mind when asked about our travels. Cezarina has a passion for life, travel, hospitality, and her country; these passions radiate through her small tour company.

Dear R&R, This beautiful and heartfelt review is one of the reasons we do what we do against all odds. And, God knows, all odds have been against us with the pandemic and now the Ukrainian-Russian conflict in the region. I'm humbled by your words and I reminisce often on the journey we took together in Transylvania, for you see, every one of our guests' journeys becomes ours through the human connections we establish and the lifetime memories that are born. Hugs from sunny Romania! Cezarina

One of the best organized vacation. Cazarina planned everything so well. I felt like traveling with a friend. She carefully crafted itinerary to suit my requirements. In fact, she made it extra special by adding so many experiences. Be it her excellent driving skills, well chosen properties, amazing food experiences…. Everything was just perfect. She takes her job very seriously and her passion to give you the best experience and impression about the country is commendable. Even though it was my 70th country to visit, it will remain one of the best. All thanks to Cazarina and Romania Private Tours

Dear Harshana, Thank you so dearly for this heartwarming review. Yesterday I was contemplating the photos and videos from our journey together in Romania. It's amazing how transformational travel is in so many ways. You discovered that a country many people know nothing about can be a truly pleasant surprise and I discovered through you that human nature is essentially good and kindness beautifies everything it touches. I know you are a world traveller and Romania was your 70th country to visit, so I wish you smooth journeys ahead and I hope my country will keep a special place in your heart forever. Hugs! Cezarina

We were fortunate enough to travel to Romania last year, amidst this crazy pandemic and we are reminiscing on those day even now. We are not experienced travelers, but we wanted to go somewhere most our friends didn’t to avoid all the: go there, do that, when we were there … etc. etc. We initially thought of an Arab country, my husband picked Morocco, and later on I thought of Eastern Europe and Romania seemed totally unspoken of. So after a short debate on a Forum here, we’ve made our mind and bought the tickets to Bucharest. We searched for a private tour company, as we are no longer in our prime and keeping up with a mixed group of people wasn’t what we wanted to do. We looked and looked, read plenty of reviews and even more blogs and we stumbled upon Romania Private Tours and Cezarina, in particular. We liked very much their/her approach to travel and, despite their offer being a bit higher than the average, we committed and let them lead the way. I wrote a more detailed review here, as a promised feedback to the TA community that helped us choosing our destination. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g1-i13626-k13594403-o20-Morocco_vs_Romania_Which_one_do_you_prefer_Travel_advice-Senior_Travel.html But I wanted to give all the credit for the mind-blowing journey we had to this small company that organised not only a perfectly balanced trip, but found a way to make us fall in love with this beautiful country we knew so little about a year ago. Now, many of our friends are, all of a sudden, interested in the destination and we might join them on a tour of Maramures and Bucovina, now that we have already become so intimate with Transylvania. :) Romania is a safe country you can explore at ease on your own, but if you are short on time and confused about where to start or if you are of a certain age (like we are) or simply don’t want to bother with the logistics and simply enjoy the ride, then send them an email and you’re in for an awesome experience. I wish you all happy travels in this new year!

I unexpectedly found myself in Romania with a few days to myself. I did not know very much at all, except that the story of Dracula was set in Transylvania. I am ever so pleased that I found Cevarina and Romania Private Tours. Within a day she had put together a last minute 2-day tour, which was far more than just going to Bran castle. Cevarina's knowledge of the real history of Romania is exceptional. Her ability to go off the beaten track and be adaptable and make last minute adjustments is much appreciated. I had two wonderful days, and cannot recommend Romania Private Tours enough.

Dear Moira, I apologise for this late reply. I owe you my gratitude for your review and for the experience YOU offered me as a person and a companion throughout the short journey of discovery in Transylvania. We strongly believe that everything happens for a reason and at the right time and this is what happened during our trip. I've been following your travels on FB ever since you left and I admire the courage and strength you display at all times. You are an inspiration for us all. Hugs, Cezarina

Cezarina and her family are so warm and welcoming, that I didn’t feel even for a moment that it was the first time meeting them. They’re open, fun and extremely easy to talk to about any given topic. In fact, although I’m Romanian myself, talking to them had me learn quite a few new things about my country. I believe it’s because Cezarina is really passionate about her roots and has taken the time to visit and discover Romania properly. She’ll tell you what no guide book can, with a hearty dose of humour. It goes without saying that the food was finger-licking good (and I’ve tasted my fair share of Romanian dishes). Truly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn about Romania, try some staple dishes or simply have a delightful dinner with some wonderful people.
