Frequently Asked Questions
Thinking of booking with Roaring Romania but you have some questions? We tried to answer the most frequent questions we have received along the way. If your question is not answered here, please send us an email or message on Whatsapp.
How do I book my tour?
To book your tour:
send us a message via the contact form of the tour;
send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org mentioning the tour you want to book, dates, and number of people.
How far in advance do I need to book?
It’s always best to give us a week notice for Bucharest Tours and Day Tours, especially in peak season. For Short Tours and Long Tours, the earlier the better so we can guarantee accommodation to the standards we use for our itineraries.
How do I pay?
For Bucharest Tours you will pay in cash to the guide on the day of the tour. For the rest tours that require a deposit, the deposit will be paid upon booking time via paypal or wire transfer. The rest of the amount will be paid up to 24hrs before the tour starts also via paypal or wire transfer.
Can I leave a review for the tours?
Yes, we love reviews and feedback. You will always received a follow up email with the details where you can share your comments on the tour. Our company is relatively young so reviews on Tripadvisor, Facebook and Google help us a lot in spreading the word.
Tours on the website do not fit my dates or itinerary plans. Can I modify an itinerary?
Yes. Our private tours are highly adaptable to your travel plans so send us an email with your dates, number of people on the group and what you would like to see and we can put together an itinerary that fits your holiday plans perfectly.
Who will be my guide?
Alexandra leads most of the tours at Roaring Romania Tours. When she is not available, we have a team of collaborators, enthusiastic guides that deliver our tours in the same fun, relaxed, informative manner as Alexandra.
Who will be the driver?
For groups up to 6 people the guide will also be your driver. For 7+ you will have a bus with a dedicated driver separate from the guide.
We want an itinerary and travel plan but no guide. Is that possible?
You can opt for a self-driven tour. The pre-set tours are not available on the website yet but send us an email and we can put together an itinerary for you. We take care of all the bookings for accommodation and car and you will receive a day by day itinerary with recommendations of what to visit.
If you do not want to drive yourself, you have the option of only booking a driver who will take care of the driving and you will visit the landmarks on your own.
If you are a group, we can plan you a bus tour with day by day itinerary.

Why is there a photo fee for some landmarks?
Some landmarks like Peles Castle and the painted monasteries of Bucovina choose to charge a photo fee per camera which is not included in our tour costs. We are not able to answer why they opt to charge for a photo fee but we can give you an estimate beforehand on the costs if you are interested in taking photos at these landmarks.

Yes. If you want to upgrade or downgrade your accommodation it is possible. This will trigger changes in the final price of the tour.
