Testimonials about the tour

“Excellent knowledge and very helpful”I had a wonderful time in Romania and Transylvania which was all arranged by Eniko at Carpathian Escapes. The sightseeing and the arrangements all worked well and I absolutely loved Transylvania. So much to see from amazing scenery, old Castles and ancient towns and the people were so friendly. It was nice to go somewhere that was not so packed with tourists and as a solo female traveller I felt totally safe. (Tania from Australia, 2018)
