1 day "out of the ordinary" tour! - visit interesting sites with a local private guide


We visit the Unirea Salt Mine from Slanic - Prahova, the largest salt mine in Europe, located 208 m under the ground. Inside the mine you can find a small history museum, a soccer field, a children's playground. It is breathtaking to be walking inside the mine; there are just a few places in the world where you can admire such a huge underground structure!

Next stop - A very nice winery from Buzau County; short tour of the winery; after that, you can taste some of the Premium and Super-Premium wines of the winery.

Last stop - the Muddy Volcanoes from Buzau County - the largest location with mud volcanoes in Europe!

The tour can be done with a Subaru Forester 2010 (AWD SUV) for 250 Euro. Please send me a message if you want to book the SUV.

The tour can be done with a Mercedes Benz Vito van (4 - 8 passengers) for 296 Euro. Please send me a message if you want to book the van.

I can create a customized tour for you in case you have special requests or if you are more than 8.

A Recent Review of this tour

Adrian gave a great tour of the countryside of Romania. We enjoyed the salt mines and how huge they were. I still can't get over how impressive they were. Michael really enjoyed the winery and can't wait to open up the bottles we purchases. The tour was beyond our expectations. You were an excellent guide. Over all it was a fantastic day.
