Romania Tours

Our Romania Tours include several Dracula related highlights, as well as important historical landmarks and traditional villages. Choose an itinerary which blends myths and legends with real locations and facts related to our country.

Our Romania tours types range from Vampire Tours, taking place in the summer, to Halloween tours or even Private tours. If you are ready to choose your perfect tour, read on and find out several aspects you need to consider before booking.

When are Romania Tours departing?

Before you start planning your journey, the first thing that comes to mind is when you can go on an unforgettable holiday.

With work and personal issues in balance, finding some free time on your schedule can be quite a challenge. With our varied Romania tours offer, we aim to address this problem by providing several departure dates.

Sighisoara Citadel

If you have enough time on your hands, we recommend one of our best Romania Tours – the Awarded 7-Days experience. We organize this tour between May and October.

If you are looking for an extra treat, choose the Halloween edition of our 7-Days tour, which includes up to three Halloween Parties. Since the departure dates for these tours are different every year, please check our Departures Calendar to discover specific information.

We also organize 3-days Short Breaks, which are basically shorter versions of the 7-days experience. These Romania tours include the most important highlights and, if you choose the Halloween editions, two amazing parties.

The summer editions of our 3-days Short Breaks depart on request, for groups of at least 4 people. On Halloween, we organize two Short Breaks, one departing from Cluj-Napoca and the other one from Bucharest. These editions of our tours are timed to coincide with the Halloween Parties.

If you are unable to travel on tours with a set departure date, you should consider booking a private tour. The advantage of a private experience is that you can depart on any date.

In addition to this, you can travel with your friends and family only, making your journey more intimate. Before booking a private tour, you should know that these Romania Tours require at least 4 people to depart.

What is the Romania Tours experience you are looking for?

Before you decide to book one of our Romania Tours, take a moment and think about what you require from your experience. If your goal is to visit our country and discover the myths and legends surrounding Dracula, our 7-Days Dracula tours are the perfect choice.

If it’s not enough for you, check out our Awarded 7-Days Halloween tour, which includes up to three Halloween Parties.

Halloween Party

If you have limited time to spend in Romania, we recommend our 3-days Short Breaks. You will visit the main Dracula related highlights and, on Halloween, you will enjoy two amazing parties.

Vampire tours, regardless if they are 3-days or 7-days, include our popular Ritual of Killing of the Living Dead. Join our team and help us save an unfortunate soul from the evil ‘strigoi’.

Our 1 or 2-days Halloween tours are perfect if your main interest is having fun at our Halloween Parties. These tours include accommodation, meals and access to at least one Halloween Party.

Socialize with like-minded people on our tours

One of your goals during your Romania Tours is to socialize with other people passionate about Dracula myths and legends? In that case, the best tour for you is one which has a set departure date. These tours usually reunite medium-sized groups, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to meet your fellow travelers.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a more intimate experience, like traveling with your friends or family only, we recommend a Private tour.

Another advantage of this tour type is that you can set the departure date whenever suits you best. Take into account that private tours usually require at least 4 people to depart.

Advice for Australians traveling abroad

According with Australian government the following advice are to be followed:

Before you go

  • Confirm your passport is valid for 6 months from when you think your trip will end. Don’t get stranded.
  • Get comprehensive travel insurance to cover you and your gear. Get insurance that’s right for you and covers your activities in the places you’ll go. Remember, regardless of how healthy and fit you are, if you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel.
  • Consider your physical and mental health. Get advice from your doctor if you’re unsure.
  • See your doctor or travel clinic 8 weeks before you go for a basic health check
  • Check if your medication is legal and available in the places you’re going. Take enough of your prescribed medicines to last the whole trip. Carry copies of your prescription and a letter from your doctor.
  • Tell your bank you’re travelling and check if your cards will work. Have several payment options.
  • If you’ll drive overseas check out the local traffic laws and practices. You’re likely to need an International Driving Permit (IDP) as well as your Australian driver’s licence.
  • Share your itinerary with friends or family members. Give them copies of your passport

Travel insurance

Holidays don’t always go as planned. If you’re going overseas, travel insurance is as important as a passport. Without it, you or your family could suffer financially if things go wrong. No matter who you are, where you’re going and what you’re doing, get insurance.

Travel insurance is especially important if you need medical assistance. Healthcare overseas can be very expensive. Most countries won’t give you free care, or subsidise the cost of your care. You, or your insurer, must usually pay full price.

Travel Advice for Australians visiting Romania

Safety

Keep your personal belongings close. Lock hotel and train compartment doors from the inside.

Drink spiking is an issue, especially in Bucharest’s Old Town. Don’t accept food, drinks, gum or cigarettes from people you’ve just met.

Dating and marriage scams occur.

Only use ATMs in banks, shops and shopping centres, especially at night. Always keep your credit card in sight. Be wary of people you’ve met online.

Local laws

Penalties for drug offences are severe. They can include jail sentences of up to 20 years.

By law, you must always carry photo ID. Keep your passport in a safe place. Carry a photocopy.

It’s illegal to take photos of airports, military sites or other secure locations.

It’s illegal to engage in sex work or have sexual relations with a person under 18.

Same-sex relationships are legal in Romania, but not widely accepted.

Local contacts

The Australian Consulate in Bucharest provides limited consular and passport assistance.

You can get full consular help from the Australian Embassy in Athens.
