We recently completed a 15 day Romania & Moldova private driving tour organized by Rolandia Travel, an incoming tour operator based in Iasi, Romania. Our tour began and ended in Bucharest, but focused on the regions of Transylvania, Bucovina and Maramures. We also added in a very interesting and worthwhile visit to the breakaway region of Transnistria.

Nicu Apostle was our Rolandia tour manager. Nicu helped us with pre-trip itinerary suggestions; they were good, well-informed and made our trip more enjoyable. We (4 of us) travelled Romania in a very comfortable, clean and air conditioned new model van. The quality and location of accommodations (we chose, based on Nicu’s excellent input and help) were overall topnotch. We especially enjoyed the charm and quality of the pensiuneas in the beautiful regions of Maramures (Breb) and Bucovina (Voronet).

Marcel was our driver and guide, and he made our trip especially enjoyable. Communication skills were great; he was personable and we all quickly bonded very well with him. Marcel provided us complete and interesting historical & cultural information for the sights & places we visited. He also provided many legends and personal stories that added to our understanding of Romania and its people, history & culture. Marcel was exceptionally patient, accommodating and sensitive to our needs and wishes; very willing to adapt the itinerary along the way, never cutting corners. He included several special cultural “experience” stops (not in the original itinerary) that added greatly to our enjoyment. Marcel was also a skillful and careful driver; we felt safe and confident at all times.

It is clear Nicu takes the well being of his guests seriously to ensure they have a great experience. He even took time to greet us in Iasi (Rolandia and Nicu’s hometown) and personally showed us around the city. Rolandia Travel (Nicu) was reliable in all ways and we highly recommend them as an excellent and reliable tour operator for travelers wanting to visit the beautiful country of Romania.

My wife and I are just back from a tour of Romania of two weeks and were surprised that very few international tourists were around. Probably the covod-19 may have something to do with it. However, personally I do not know people who have been visiting Romania and it is a pity as Romania has a lot to offer from an historically point of view. Indeed churches (of various types) are the focal points of history and art, with paintings inside and outside. Our itinerary was outlined by myself but all booking (guide, car and hotels) were made by Rolandia Travel of Mr. Nicu Apostol. Hotels, all three or four stars, were very good with some beyond expectations. The guide and driver, Mr. Gelu Zavada, spoke a wonderful English and was very knowledgeable on the history of the country and interpretation of the numerous paintings. During the tour Nicu was behind the scene, checking that everything went smooth. A very memorable vacation, thanks to Gelu and Nicu. To summarize: go to Romania ... with Rolandia.

Just back from a wonderful two weeks in Serbia and Romania organized by Rolandia. I contacted several travel agencies and Rolandia was consistently the most responsive and provided the most value for the cost. They took care to meet all our needs and requests. The guides/drivers were knowledgeable and professional and provided an enriching experience. When one of the countries no longer allowed Americans to enter, Rolandia quickly helped us make arrangements in another country. They added some unique extras during the trip. I would highly recommend them and we have extensive travel experience…over 90 countries.

Trip across Transylvanya walking in the South Carpathians (Bucegi National Park, Moeciu de Sus/Fundata/the foothills of Petra Craiul mountains around Peshtera/Magura), Saxon villages (fortified churches at Prezmer and Viscri), Transylvanian countryside (remote villages of Miclosoara and Valea Zanlalui), city visits to Sighisoara and Cluj.
Highly recommended. Rolandia was able to create the perfect tailor made itinerary (guide Laurentiu was highly knowledgeable of the histrory, geography and rural traditions of Romania, including Romania’s rich gastronomic traditions). This tour is to be recommended both as a standalone and for those driving across Romania from Bulgaria or Greece on their way to Central Europe. Suitable for dog owners. Rolandia was able to identify dog friendly accommodation everywhere. Thank you for a highly enjoyable experience. I hope to return as soon as possible!

I had a great weekend thanks to my guide Marcel, who told me many interesting stories, legends and provided information about places we visited. He was very patient and stopped the car more times, so I could take a lot of very beautiful photos that would not otherwise be available to me. I recommend this tour to all travelers who want to see the most beautiful cities and landscapes in Romania. This country is not yet sufficiently discovered as a very interesting destination and it deserves to have many visitors.

Rolandia organized a 28 day tour of Romania for us, beginning after a week in Bucharest on our own. Throughout the planning Rolandia was attentive to our wishes and interests, often making suggestions that greatly enriched the trip, but never forcing anything upon us: never did we feel we were following an itinerary determined by others. Hotels were always ideally located, comfortable and offering the services we needed, as well as impeccably clean. Best of all, we were provided with a personable and knowledgable guide, whose love and knowledge of the country were clearly evident; the guide also easily adapted to changes that inevitably happen during travel. Behind the scenes, Rolandia took care of details that might otherwise have consumed a great deal of time and diminished the joy of the trip, such as transfers and making initial arrangements for the required PCR test to return to the US. It was an almost carefree holiday, filled with pleasant surprises and opportunity to see Romania beyond the recommendations of a guidebook. Working with Nicu and his attentive office staff was a pleasure. Joe P

I contacted Nicu about a 3 day customized trip through Transylvania. We started in Sibiu to Sighisoara to Brasov and ended in Bucharest. Our guide/driver was Mircea; he went above and beyond making us feel comfortable and safe. We learned many things from him about the castles, fortified cities and Romania . This trip was a dream of mine for years and I was not disappointed!! Romania is a beautiful country with friendly people.

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.

I advised Nicu want my wife and I wanted to see and he was excellent in organizing the tour and making suggestions . Nothing we requested was too much trouble for him and he was prompt in replying to all of our questions. Alex was our Guide and we could not have wished for a better person or travel companion. He was knowledgeable ,able to answer all of our questions and also patient and caring. We were not as fit as we had thought and Alex helped my wife who struggled at times climbing and walking up steep stairs. If you are going to Romania contact Nicu at Rolandia and you can't go wrong.

Just got back from an 18 day private tour in Romania put together by Iulian and Adelina at Rolandia. What a great trip! We had a guide/driver (Traian) who was excellent. He was very flexible, very knowldgeable and gave us a bunch of good restaurant recommendations - none of which failed!! They put us in some great "heritage" hotels such as the Georgius Krauss Hotel in Sighisoara. Built in 1513 and just 100 yards from Vlad the impalers birthplace! We changed the itinerary on the fly and ditched a wine tasting for a day trip to Moldova. Romania was a surprisingly great place to visit. Great food all round. Lots of history including fortified churches, amazing palaces and castles, a visit to the Black Sea and more. So kudos to Iulian and Adelina for putting together a great trip and being reachable the couple of times we needed help.
