Why Transylvania?

  • thename of Transylvaniabenefits of free publicity due to vampire legends
  • Transylvania is a place where traditional ways of life are still preserved

Vision and Principles


Seeing the tourist circuits as live shows, will turn Transylvania Live into the leader among tour operators valorising the double valence of Transylvania: legend and tradition.


  • travelling is most rewarding when it involves direct experiences of the characteristicsof the visited places
  • the details make the difference
  • sustainable tourism: both making use and preserving our traditions and mythology

Positioning. What makes us different.

  • The creativity in conceiving the tours, our experience in event organising and our knowledge of Transylvania and Romania allows us to design some of the best itineraries;
  • We are the only Romanian tour operator offering the possibility of enjoying Transylvanian Festivals live.
  • All events are focused on the tourist’s needs based on the principle of interactive shows – we offer special happenings with medieval and traditional themes.

Our Guests

  • For couples tours are designed for couples who would like to socialise, enjoy good quality time together while visiting and discovering a country that proves to begreat for two! The minimum age range for these tours is 20 years old.
  • Transylvania Live hiking tours appeal equally to young people, as well as to middle aged-people, specially to mountain lovers.
  • Our cultural tours are conceived for people who value authentic cultures and immersion in other lifestyles
  • Sightseeing holidays are created for tourists that travel for leisure and to make new friends.

In general our holidays are intended for people who:

    • will appreciate being a living part of the picture
    • are concerned for comfort and security and we setup our arrangement accordingly

…Live Transylvania in all senses as well as to experience Transylvania… Live.

Strategy: professional organizing of events

  • Regional Centres for Preserving Tradition of Maramures and Brasov
  • Community Cultural Centres in Sibiu and Fagaras
  • City halls: The Festival at Prislop, Sighisoara and Jina
  • Wine yards and wine factory
  • British consultancy company

Strategy: transportation

We begin our Romanian experience from Budapest airport because: 

  • It offers excellent low cost travel from UK (the direct U.K – Bucharest flights are more expensive, there’s a difference of more the 150-200 EURO comparing to U.K – Budapest flights).
  •  Is the most attractive way to travel in comfort to Transylvania, avoiding the complication of there being no nearer direct flights from the UK to this region of Romania.  
  •   It provides the possibility of visiting the western Hungary, come in contact with Hungarian  atmosphere and visit the capital – Budapest.

Strategy: transportation

  • For each type of tour, here is how we structured the transportation:
  • Sightseeing Tours
  • for groups of 15 to 48tourists - we can provide a luxury coach which offers refreshments, toilets and the driver will stop when requested to do so – a MAN coach,49 tourist seats, made in 2004, equipped with AC, toilets, foldable seats, video, TV, refrigerator.
  • for groups of 15 to 18 tourists the transportation is assured by a midi bus Isuzu Turquoise–made in 2004– 26 tourist seats, equipped with AC, foldable seats TV, DVD, and refrigerator.
  • for groups of 8 to 14 tourists the transportation is assured by a microbus Ford Tranzit, made in 2004,equipped with AC, foldable seats, TV, video, refrigerator compartment.
  • - for groups of 4 to 7 tourists the transportation is assured by a microbus Mercedes Vito, made in 2003,7 touristsseats, equipped with AC, foldable seats, the guide will also be the driver.
  • - for groups of 1to 3 tourists the transportation is assured by a car – Ford Focus, made in 2001, equipped with AC, in this case the guide will also be the driver.

Strategy: transportation

- for groups of 15 to 18, 8 to 14, 4 to 7, 1 to 3 the same solutions given for sightseeing.


Strategy: transportation

Tours for couples

- from 8 to maximum 13 couples (maximum allowed per tour) tours are done with the same midi bus Isuzu Turquoise – made in 2004,.

-For 5, 6 or 7 couples we use a Ford Tranzitmicrobus

IMPORTANT: These tours are different from the others because a minimum number of 5 couples is required to book the tour (due the socialization reasons);


Strategy: transportation

Strategy: accommodation & meals

  • 3***, 4**** hotels (exception: accommodation for one night in traditional country-inns during some of the tours)
  • we assure the opportunity to enjoy the best in matter of Romanian cuisine
  • special picnics in spectacular places in the middle of the nature

NOTICE: For the adventure tour Conquer Transylvania’s Alps (code Ro6.2RoHi) most of the accommodations will be in mountain huts
