Why travel with us

Option 1

From Arad we can easily visit Timisoara, the city where the 1989 anti-communist revolution started and Europe’s Cultural Capital in 2021. By visiting it you will get a sense of the spirit and history of the place and how its multi-cultural background helped the city develop.

Near Arad there is one of the only 4 catholic minor basilica (called Maria Radna) which was recently renovated and it is very interesting place to visit in the Western Romania.

Between this basilica and Timisoara there is the only circular village in Romania called Charlottenburg. Its German-sounding name will raise some questions and during the tour you will get your answers.

In this private day tour from Arad, in Oradea you can visit the imposing star-shaped fortress, the baroque palace, the many different kind of churches present in the city: a catholic minor basilica, a synagogue, the biggest Baptist church in the country, the church with the moon and a rich variety of Secession and Art Nouveau architecture.

Traveler’s Reviews

Jeroen from the Netherlands 

Me and my group had a private day trip which was flexible in every aspect. The guide was passionate and had many detailed background stories from the area, and made sure everyone got a rich experience from the trip. I can recommend their day tours to everyone visiting Romania. They will guarantee an experience you will not forget soon.
