Maramures Tours

We live here, it is our back garden :)

We specialise in tours of Maramures.

We have learned that some people like to visit the Village Hotel with all things included and organized well in advance. This means you don’t have to worry about anything when your on one of our tours or what the best things to see or experience, it’s all taken care of. Having lived in Maramures now for seven years we know our way around. We have discovered little gems of life, tucked away that no one else knows about. I have put all my knowledge of the region into five different tours that I think bring out the best of the region. Our Transylvania Tours are tried and testing and run 90% as planned. For example on our Dancing with the Gypsies tour, you never quite know who will be around in some of the villages we visit to learn how to dance. This is the wild part of Romania after all and why you are interested in visiting the region.

You will not meet people in the tourist businesses dressed up to look like locals in traditional costume. You will spend your time with locals working the land, with real Gypsies and old people from the villages that live the same way as there ancestors did many years before.

They work to a different mentality which is all part of the experience. Our Transylvania Tours include all costs apart from: your flights, any tipping you may choose to give (not recommended) and any bar bills you manage to tot up around the country. All alcohol consumed whilst in Breb is included in the cost. You do not have to pay or worry about anything for your entire stay. You are met at the airport and we make sure everything goes as planned until you catch your flight back home. Make a booking enquiry
