First off we’ll head to the city of Târgoviște, the former capital of the Wallachia region, and visit the old Princely Court from where Vlad the Impaler ruled. We’ll learn more about his life from the exhibition housed in the Chindia Tower.

Our next stop will be in the town of Curtea de Argeș, situated at the bottom of the Fagaras Mountains. Here, we’ll visit one of the most remarkable monasteries in Romania.

We’ll then continue to the northern regions of the Argeș county and venture into the marvellous mountainous landscape. We’ll make a stop at the foot of the Fagaras Mountains to explore a stronghold built by Vlad the Impaler himself: the Poenari Citadel is a mighty fortress on a high hill, dominating the entire area.
We will only see the fortress from the valley as it was closed due to bears attacks

From here we will reach Vidraru Dam Lake and stop here for pictures and to enjoy the view

Finally, we’ll return to Bucharest and drop you off at your accommodation.

Great tour and great guide!!
Stellar tour!!
This tour is amazing! I had limited time in Bucharest and decided to get to Bulgaria while I was closeby. SO happy I did! My tour guide, Constantine, was extremely knowledgeable about Romanian and Bulgarian history and the UNESCO sites we visited. I asked a million questions about Bucharest and the sites we visited which he so nicely answered. I could not have asked for a better day or tour guide! I would recommend this tour for small groups and individuals.
A unique look at Romania’s Communist past
This tour provides a great chance to learn about Romania’s Communist past by touring the Parliament building and the Ceaucescu residence. Alina was terrific and provided good information about these buildings and other sites within the city.
