Traveller's Journal

We want to hear about YOUR travel experiences in Romania: the places you've seen, the people you've met, favourite local dish or a travel memory to remember! It may be a great photo, a thank you note for your local Romanian Friend or a couple of words for other soon-to-be travellers to Romania.

A small journal to show others the good times you had from your visit to Romania!

We don't want you to get lost in hundreds of reviews about the tours and trips on Romanian Friend - we already know they're good because we're locals who know the best spots and things to do in Romania and found the best guides to take you there - it's how Romanian Friend works. We only ask that you trust us :)

Instead, we'll let others tell you about their experience on tours selected by Romanian Friend:

We had a fantastic day with Florin exploring the Turda salt mine and Alba Iulia citadel. Florin was an ideal guide - super friendly and welcoming, very knowledgeable, and passionate about Transylvania and its history. The salt mine is really something else. We had been looking forward to the installations inside but the really amazing thing is the mine itself. Alba Iulia is an extraordinary piece of work, and Florin could point out to us a multitude of details. All topped off by a drive back to Cluj through beautiful scenery. We hope to be back in Romania again and use Romanian Friend to find another great trip and guide!

My recent 2 day trip through Maramures with Florin was spectacular. Florin's knowledge is boundless, his enthusiasm contagious and his well planned itinerary excellent. The Maramures region is packed with wonderful scenery, wondrous wooden churches and a center for maintaining century's old traditional lifestyles. The staff at Romanian Friend couldn't have been more helpful or courteous. The entire experience was A+ and I can highly recommend joining Florin for a trip through Maramures.

The Food & Drinks in Local Markets and Hidden Streets tour was very nice and I enjoy it a lot!! I have to say it would be difficult for people not enjoy this tour because you the food is great and with lots of alcohol. And the first beer started at 11:30!! The guide was also very nice and after we finished he sent us email about all suggestions and tips we asked. Not only that people in the group were also very nice. Thank you!!

Romanian Friend made it possible to book a tour in Bukarest for me and my two oscillating kids with only a few hours short notice! So we had a great tour with our guide Elena to the important points of The Communist Heritage: Megalomania & Weird Names in Bukarest! She shared all her accumulated background knowledge about the revolution in 1989 and the former communistic regime and answered patiently all our questions. Our tour through Bukarest was much longer than planned because of the interesting facts she told us.
Thanks for supporting us in such an uncomplicated way!
