Our friendly English-speaking staff will hand out free maps and show you how to get to the main sites of both Bucharest (the Paris of the East, as they say) and
Romania (Draculas castle in Bran, the medieval cities of Transylvania - such as Sighisoara, Brasov
and Sibiu, the monasteries of Bucovina and the hippie Black Sea resort of Vama Veche).
Avoid the very expensive tours others offer and explore the city and the country yourself with our help.
