Questions about this Bucharest day trip:

This is one of the most popular day trips from Bucharest and it's a "mass tourism" day trip that you'll find everywhere. But that's not what we do, like or promote. So our tour is private and led by our best guides. We want you to have a good experience visiting these important tourist sights and the flexibility to adjust the pace based on your interests. Since this will be a long day, we care more about your comfort and overall experience than touristy big bus experiences.
As this tour is private you can make some changes to the itinerary but in total only 3 sights can be visited as there is not enough time for more. Possible attractions you can visit instead: Slanic Prahova Salt Mines or Cantacuzino Castle. Please inform the guide when booking of any changes you want to make.
