Not far from Bucharest (aprox. 170 km), perfect destination for a day trip, the ruins of Poienari Fortress (built by the ruler Vlad the Impaler in the XVth century, on the site of an older fortress) wait you to discover it and to admire the breathtaking view from the top of Cetatuia Mountain. Only one condition: to be able to climb 1480 steps of the stair which leads to the ruins.
As a bonus, same day we are going to visit Curtea de Arges Monastery (built between 1512 - 1517)  and Vidraru Lake & Dam.

the trip described above is just a suggestion and includes some of the most important landmarks of Arges County. All our short trips & tours are customizable, according with your interests: museums, architecture, landscapes, jewish heritage, etc.

*According to your party size, special requirements, extra meals.

*We don't do shared tours, we only do private tours, so the price is influenced only by the size of your group.
If you'd like to tour Bucharest or Romania with a bunch of strangers, each one with their own agenda, pace and good or bad habits, there are plenty of other travel agents out there happy to accommodate you.

*We don't do "free" tours, we only do private tours at fair prices. With us you can enjoy the comfort of an air conditioned vehicle, while visiting many more attractions than during a walking tour.
Anyway, a private tour doesn't necessarily mean an expensive tour. Please take a moment to review our prices. You'll find private tours at the price of a shared tour or cheaper!
