Private tours of Romania include the beautiful capital of Bucharest, the medieval town of Brasov, and Dracula’s castle in Bran. Travellers can also go off the beaten track to discover western Romania, Transylvania and the Carpathian regions – see the Unesco world heritage site of the Hurezi Monastery, the medieval settlement of Sighisoara and Corvin Castle, the largest in Eastern Europe.
For a unique experience, travel along the Transalpina road – the highest in Romania – and choose to stay in one of the two Prince of Wales’ properties in the village of Viscri and Zalanpatak.

We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
