private tour of Romania - would you recommend Carpathian Travel Center?

Jump to last reply

I have never taken an organized tour in my life, and never thought I would want to. But I have been traveling on my own since January, and at this point am just exhausted with planning. I also have a dear friend who just returned from Romania and did not feel safe there traveling alone at night.

I've already booked a flight in/out of Bucharest for April 12-21. I know that I want to explore other areas, but as I said, I am exhausted with travel planning and have not done anything with figuring out trains, hotels, etc.

So, with that as background ... I can get a private tour / guide from Carpathian Travel Center (www.visit-transylvania.com.ro) for 8 days (includes driver/guide, hotels, breakfast & dinner each day, entry fees where applicable). The cost is $1200.

If anyone ever used this company before, I'd appreciate any feedback on them. Or if you have other recommendations for guides.

Oh, the tour itinerary (headlines only):

Day 1 (Tu.): Arrival in Bucharest - City tour in Bucharest (50 km)
Day 2 (We.): Bucharest - Ploiesti - Sinaia - Brasov (190 km)
Day 3 (Th.): The Middle Aged City Brasov and Citadels of the Bârsa Land (60 km)
Day 4 (Fr.): Fortified churches and citadels in the Carpathian Arch - the gateway to Moldavia (310 km)
Day 5 (Sa.): UNESCO-World Cultural Heritage in Bukowina: Humor - Voronet - Sucevita - Moldovita (210 km)
Day 6 (Su.): Gura Humorului – Bistrita – Sighisoara (270 km)
Day 7 (Mo.): Sighisoara - Biertan - Medias - Sibiu (110 km)
Day 8 (Tu.): Sibiu - Bucharest

So, feedback on the company or on the itinerary would be appreciated. Thanks!
