3 day trips from Bucharest, a guided tour of Bucharest, a trip to Transylvania for 2 days, and a trip to Bucharest for 4 days. The longer tours in Romania can be seen in the corresponding “Romania Tours” category.
Depending on the available time, it will be easy to choose one or more day trips from Bucharest or a multi day trip to Transylvania or Bucharest. The best way to visit Romania in a short time is by taking one or more of these guided tours.
First, the day trip to the castles and Transylvania, in the mountain area. A must do activity in Bucharest during your stay. No doubt, the most efficient way to discover Romania during a tour by car, with tour guide and tickets included (no queue to get them). You reach the Carpathians and visit the Peles Castle – royal residence in Sinaia, Bran Castle – known as Dracula’s castle and, optionally, Brasov – “the Crown city”. Moreover, there is the opportunity to extend this one day trip to 2 days, enjoying more time during the visits and spending the night in the beautiful city of Brasov.
Next, the Bucharest tour is an excellent alternative to the already mainstream free tours. The included transport allows for a complete panoramic visit and during the 4-5 hours of the tour, two important attractions are included: the Village Museum and the Palace of the Parliament. The latter can also be added to the walking tour version that takes about 2 hours. In addition, two other versions of the Bucharest guided tour are offered: the night tour and the different tour.
A second important day trip is “Bucharest Surroundings”. It takes you near the city and introduces you to the mystery of Vlad Dracula’s death by visiting the Snagov Monastery. It also explains the history of the country and of Bucharest through a visit to the Mogosoaia Palace. Both attractions are surrounded by beautiful nature. In the version with Therme, it is possible to enjoy this modern, extensive and highly appreciated wellness center that uses thermal water resources in the area.
On the other hand, you can take advantage of Bucharest’s location to visit a neighbouring country, different from Romania and with a unique heritage. The day trip to Bulgaria is a great opportunity to discover Veliko Tarnovo – “the city of the tsars” and Arbanasi – a beautiful typical village.
At the end, we propose two trips to Romania that you should definitely consider. The 2-day trip to Transylvania includes, in addition to the castles and Brasov, two UNESCO attractions that you shouldn’t miss: the charming city of Sighisoara and the Fortified Church of Prejmer. While the 4-day trip is the perfect Bucharest getaway, with everything included at an affordable price: airport transfers, overnight accommodation, a Bucharest guided tour, and a day trip to the castles and Brasov.
All Bucharest Tours are organized in English, with an English-speaking guide, transportation, visits, and the option to include the tickets to the attractions. Other languages upon request.
The 1-day trip to the castles and Brasov (optional) can be a private or shared tour. The other day trips and the Bucharest tour are generally private: just for you and your partner, family or group, except when a shared tour is possible and you haven’t opted for exclusivity.
The trip to Transylvania and the trip to Bucharest are generally private as well: you decide the travel dates and how to tailor the program.
You can also choose which type of overnight accommodation you prefer and make some suggestions. The final price is based on the number of participants, and the chosen services and options. Flights are not included but we can help you find the best option.
Each Bucharest private tour or trip can be slightly customized or it can be a draft for a tailor-made program made from scratch.
