  • All accommodation 

  • Tour leader throughout 

What's Not Included

Food

All breakfasts, 4 light lunches and 5 dinners included. Romanian cuisine has strong influences from its surrounding countries like Bulgaria, Serbia and Hungary. We get to indulge in some fantastic home-cooked meals on this trip as we spend most nights staying with local families and in guesthouses. Breakfasts will consist of homemade bread and cheeses as well as a selection of locally sourced meats, salad and tea or coffee. The light lunches are prepared by guesthouses. Some days we will have traditional vegetable soup for lunch with homemade crème fraiche and bread. Dinners are usually 2 or 3 courses, centred around pork or beef. Lots of guesthouses will prepare Sarmale cu Mamaliguta which is a traditional Romanian dish made of minced pork wrapped in pickled cabbage leaves and served with polenta and a chilli. It’s not all about the food though; every household makes their own Tuica (pronounced “tsweeka”) which is a spirit usually made from plums and flavoured with herbs from their garden or the surrounding area. This is usually drunk whilst being welcomed into the house and after dinner.

Accommodation

On this trip we stay in 3-star hotels when staying in the bigger cities. In the rural areas, we will stay at family run guesthouses. In some of the guesthouses, we will sometimes have shared bathrooms (1 bathroom for 2 rooms). In the smaller guesthouses, the rooms might be split over several guesthouses close to one another.

Are there restaurants nearby?

"You'll find shops at every temple, if not, then nearby. They sell drinks or snacks, and clothing (traditional clothes for photos). There is a place at Angkor Wat for sit-down food and drinks."

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"Visit a Masai cultural village to learn about their way of life, take a walk along the Mara river and cross the bridge to have one foot in Kenya and one foot in Tanzania! Game drives are my favourite."
