Robert was our guide and was exceptionally knowledgeable about the movement of people over the centuries and the cultural impact on Transylvania.A great storyteller as his use of language was also exceptional as he related the history of the sites.

Best trip from Cluj

Oh my gosh, guys! I just had the most fantastic day trip with Rolandia exploring some of Eastern Europe's hidden gems: the Turda Salt Mine, Corvin Castle, and Alba Iulia Citadel. Our super friendly and knowledgeable guide gave us all the deets on each place's history and cultural importance. The Turda Salt Mine was breathtaking, especially the underground lake! Then, we stepped into a gothic fairytale at Corvin Castle, with its enchanting architecture and spine-chilling legends. Finally, we marvelled at the massive fortifications of Alba Iulia Citadel, which showcased the region's strategic importance. Kudos to Rolandia for making everything run so smoothly! If you're ever in Romania, I can't recommend this day trip enough. Trust me; you'll create unforgettable memories! 🏰✨🇷🇴
Response from Host, Jun 2023

Your recommendation means a lot to us, and we hope that more travellers will have the opportunity to explore Romania and its hidden gems through our day trips. We appreciate your enthusiasm and are delighted that you had such a memorable experience. If you ever plan to visit Romania again, we would be more than happy to assist you in discovering more treasures!

Fantastic your. It was really nice to have a local guide all to ourselves. We were able to ask questions and get a real sense of Romanian culture and history. Andrei was very knowledgeable and (understandingly) passionate about Romania. The tour was a really good mix of old and modern history and we felt we had good exposure to Transylvania. I learnt a lot and gained a new appreciation for the country. This is a great taster trip, and in my case I am determined to go back to Romania to do some more exploring in the future.
I found Alba Julia...

Amazing introduction in Transylvania History

Our tour guide Mihai was wonderful and a great storyteller. He is like a history teacher, funny and friendly at the same time. Both sights are lovely, with a big plus for Corvin Castle.
