Bad tour operator choice- Romannian Backroads Tours

Jump to last reply

Just making sure future travelers to Romania elect the right tour operator. Unlike us. The country is superb and we plan to return. The bad part was we elected an amateur tour operator called Romanian Backroads Tours

This is not what is looks to be. They are a strange tour operation with strange tour guides and and even stranger approach to their travelers. Could not understand why we stayed in the cheapest hotels possible, many on the outskirts of the cities we visited despite the "budget tour" concept which should not mean low quality.

Our guide was cute, way too young for such a job and seemed to be overwhelmed when one of our hotel bookings was not taken care of.

We are unhappy withe the outcome of the tour and looking to get a refund. is just promising without being able to honor. We could have spent our short time in Romania in a more fruitful manner. Plan to return though.
