  • See the best of Transylvania without having to arrange car hire

  • Letting someone else drive allows you to focus on the scenery
  • Receive personalized attention in a small group of eight
What to expect
  • Wandering through the medieval towns of Transylvania, it’s easy to forget what century you’re in. Begin your tour back in time in central Brașov, where you’ll meet your guide and climb aboard a car or minivan for the trip north. During the scenic 1.5-hour drive, listen to interesting facts and anecdotes about Romanian history from your guide. Your first stop is the 14th-century village of Viscri, built by Saxon colonists. As you approach, admire the impressive whitewashed walls and red-roofed towers that surround the village, designed to protect early inhabitants from invading Turks. Wander the rustic streets of the town and visit its UNESCO World Heritage-listed church (own expense). Continue on to the remarkably well-preserved Sighişoara, so rich in history that the entire village is a UNESCO site. Hear about the medieval town’s legendary former resident Vlad the Impaler, a Wallachian prince and warlord who inspired Bram Stoker’s fictional character Dracula. Enjoy free time to explore Sighişoara’s cobblestoned streets, bell tower and citadel on your own, and visit a café to purchase lunch if you wish. Finally, visit the hilltop Rupea Fortress, which was built for defense in the 1300s and later repurposed as a Saxon village in the 18th century. Head inside the walls for a guided tour (own expense), and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding countryside before the return drive to Brașov.

Great day with a great guide
Dec 2019 • Couples
We discovered Rupea, Viscri and Sighisoara by a snowy December day and it was very beautiful. Charlie, our guide, was very knowledgeable and also very friendly. He was happy to share memories and knowledge about his region as well as travel experiences with everyone in the group. He is also an excellent and cautious driver.
Overall, this was a great immersion in medieval transylvania with a great guide. Multumim frumos!

A memorable tour
Nov 2019
This was our first time in Romania, we were travelling as a group of 4 adults. We wanted to see the “real” Romania. Our guide Gabriel certainly gave us the experience we were looking for. Gabriel spoke excellent English, was very friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating, he let us set the pace of the tour and took us to get some Mici when we were hungry. We had considered doing this tour on our own but were so glad we did it with a guide, we would never have learnt about and understood the Saxon village of Viscri and the old town of Sighisora.
Highly recommended tour, thank you Gabriel for a great day and our treasured memories and photographs and thank you Marian for arranging this trip at late notice.

Dan took me on an unforgettable tour through Transylvania, providing me with history, insightful commentary, entertainment, and humour. Viscri in October was a real highlight for me—beautiful fall foliage in a seemingly untouched land. Sighiasoara was incredible as well, traversing through the town and cemetery in the rain. It's a lengthy tour but really worth it and a great way to feel like you are seeing the real Romania.
