Tour Overview

Standing amid the nuns who live in the Romanian monastery of Voronet while they carry out their daily routines, we will come to appreciate our level of involvement we have in our surroundings during this tour. Having the opportunity to wander the corridors of Bran Castle, believed by some to once have been the home to the infamous Count Dracula, is not a usual kind of opportunity we would have during a typical vacation. These are only some of examples of the experiences we will be taking full advantage of. Not only will we be living out the most memorable moments of our lives, but the majestic Eastern Carpathian Mountains will also be serving as the backdrop to many of our excursions. The lakeshore, open- aired museum in Bucharest, or the churches built on the lush hillsides of Transylvania are all aspects we will surely love Romania for. Why not take part in an adventure that offers so many experiences that don't come by often?

This trip was *action-packed*! I enjoyed every excursion. Day 1, with Bran, Peles, and Pelisor Castle was a whirlwind full of beautiful architecture, gorgeous views, and the monasteries at Gura Humorului were simply stunning. Those days stand out, but Sighisoara, on its own is simply lovely. It s hard to pick, honestly. I cannot say there was an excursion I didn t enjoy. Our local guide Cristian was an absolute joy, both as a guide, and in down times to chat with, or at meal times for discussion. English was always impeccable and they were excellent. No complaints of any local guide. Our bus was roomy, comfortable, and our driver pleasant, nice, and professional. The restaurants were always charming, had excellent service, and I always enjoyed my meals. Ondrej was great! Both personally and professionally. He has the perfect combination of humour, je ne sais quoi, and the ability to keep his charges in order when necessary. We were able to enjoy his company over several meals, and on a personal level. We enjoyed this tour--and Ondrej--so much that we have amended our travel wish list to include tours that Ondrej might specifically lead in the Eastern European region. All the guides we, and I, have had with Ad-Abroad have been excellent, but Ondrej is just the right combo for us.
