Mihai (Michael) picked me up on time from my hotel and we went to Bucharest’s first wine bar. Our host provided lots of information about the history of wine-making in Romania, what happened during the communist era, and what's happening now. He shared his enthusiasm for wine-making with us, and I learnt a lot about the climate, science and economics of wine.

The wines were great and we got to sample many glasses. I bought a lovely bottle of Pinot, though was under no pressure to do so. The traditional sausages and cheeses that accompanied the wine were very nice, too. Totally unhurried and with all questions answered. Highly recommended!

Good cultural tour
The Village Museum open air museum was really good and my guide was very knowledgeable. The timing was good as my tour beat the rush. It was busier at the end. The wine tasting was also really good. I sampled a few different wines with traditional snacks. Again my guide was bvery knowledgeable about the wines and the region that they came from. When the tasting was over, I asked my guide if he could drop me off at the nearby History Museum, which he did.

Carpathian off-road
Great customised private tour through the Carpathian mountains.

The trip included; off-roading through the mud, hiking through a valley next to a beautiful river, walking around gorgeous lakes, meeting locals sheepherders with their animals, snowball fight on top of a mountain, amazing views, exploring the caves and a great lunch!

We had two amazing tour guides that were super friendly, happy and were happy to answer any questions.

Great experience, definitely worth it to see the beauty of Romania!

Taste of Transylvania private tour
A friend and I recently went to Romania for three days, one of which was spent on a tour of Transylvania with Unveil Romania. Our guides were Mihai and Olivia, the founders of Unveil Romania. Both made us feel like we were among friends and were able to give us a truly fantastic experience exploring Romanian culture. Would absolutely recommend!
