Excellent 3 days tour in Transylvania with your personal guide and private car


'Transylvania is in the midst of the Carpathian mountains; one of the wildest and least known portions of Europe. ' -Bram Stoker "Dracula"

'I visited the Saxon Villages area of Transylvania and I was deeply impressed by the natural beauty and cultural richness of what I saw' -Prince Charles of Wales

'Transylvania, one of the least known cultural treasures of Europe', 'the lost past of Europe'

This private tour takes you in the heart of that legendary Transylvania, to discover and appreciate it beyond myth, for what truly makes it unique: a remarkable survival of the traditional rural landscape and historical architecture, and the unspoilt natural beauty.

A Recent Review of this tour

We asked Cristina for a custom 4 day 3 night tour of Transylvania with specific criteria we like to travel by. Cristina was just great to work with in creating the complete custom tour. The tour was busy but crammed with such very interesting and diverse hotels to stay at, places to visit and people and places to see! We got what we asked for plus. It turned out to be a number of firsts for Cristina but it was a great experience for both of us. Cristina was always helpful,informative and professional
