Due to the current covid situation, I had a private tour that day, which was awesome. Mathias was a great guide, has a lot of general Romanian knowledge along with historical. This made for great conversation on the way to and from the castles. I highly recommend the tour and would gladly do it again with friends and family in the future.

Very well done & truly fascinating, to still see the bones from the killed animals was really interesting. The caves were huge & very well kept. Also it was very easy to walk through the caves & a guide is included in the very low entrance fee. Please go & enjoy it.

For those that seek a fairytale image of Transylvania, this day trip will reveal the story of medieval villages surrounded by thick forests, of majestic fortified churches, and of citadels that are inhabited to this day. A visit to Sighisoara is perhaps the best way to experience time travel. And no holiday can be complete without experiencing a little bit of the local life. A visit in the heart of a gypsy community will teach us about their traditions and about crafts that have been long gone from today’s world.

We had a great time with our tour guide, Paul!! My boyfriend and I were vaccinated and decided to spend 4 days in Bucharest. We took this tour on a Sunday and due to the Covid season all the locations we visited were pretty clear. I was very appreciative that we didn't have to fight with crowds or long lines to enter the castles. This tour takes you to all the main castles/places in 12 hours. I chose this tour over the other ones offered on Tripadvisor since it gave us a good amount of time at each spot. I liked that we didn't feel rushed & got to really soak everything in. Yes, it seems long but I swear it goes by quick. Expect to walk a lot & definitely pack some easy to eat snacks. Also, don't forget like I did --- PACK COFFEE! The tour starts early and if you're not a morning person, coffee is a must. No more hesitating and just book it. Great price for a quality tour.

Autumn is a great time to visit Transylvania. One of the highlights for me was the mountain roads and seeing the bright autumn colours in the forests. The scenery is spectacular! Bogdan is an excellent tour guide who entertained me with his stories and knowledge of the castles. He is able to explain the history of the region and to answer any questions. Due to COVID, the castles were not crowded and the lines were short. The cold misty weather when I visited Bran Castle added to the spooky atmosphere.

We made the day trip in 2019. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and the car was comfortable and clean. We dealt with Ilona, and she was very helpful in answering all our questions. We especially enjoyed the view of Sighisoara from the City Tower. We would highly recommend Rolandia if you're planning a trip to Transylvania.

Turda Salt Mine it’s probably one of the most important and interesting places to see in Transylvania. According to the top of the most spectacular sights to see out there made by the site businessinsider.com, Turda Salt Mine is situated on the 22nd place. Salina Turda, located in Turda, Romania, is home to an underground theme park that's nestled inside one of the oldest salt mines in the world.  Turda Gorge. The canyon is nearly 3 km long, with 300 m high walls sculpted in weathered limestone. Bring the camera because you will be impressed with the work that a river did inside a mountain in hundreds of millions of years. At first sight, you will see two rocky massifs, which were once one and which were separated by erosion of Jurassic limestone rock by the river

Inclusions: Bottled water, 1 LANGOS, 1 Activity inside the Salt Mine

Exclusions: Traditional Dinner in Rimetea Village
