Reviews – Romania Photo Tours


Before Romania Photo Tours was launched in 2019 with the help of a EU grant we have been organizing photography tours, as well as other types of tours of Romania under the names Via Transylvania Tours or True Romania Tours starting with 2011.

During that time we have consistently received positive reviews which you can check on our TripAdvisor page.

Reviews of our Group Photo Tours of Romania

Ralph from Chicago, USA (photo tour leader): “I’ve worked with Daniel and his tour operator company for 5 years now, and each trip has been better than the last. I can’t recommend their services enough. And Romania as a destination should be on everyone’s radar. It’s stunningly beautiful, has wonderful cultural experiences at every turn, and the food is outstanding. And I can’t say enough about the hospitality of the Romanian people. If you’re looking to do a tour of Romania, you can’t do better than to use them as your local operator and guide.”

Nina from Michigan, USA: “I can’t say enough good things about the two weeks I spent with a small group of photographers in Sept. 2016! Our guide is probably one of the best guides I’ve ever had anywhere. Not only is he a walking encyclopedia about everything Romanian , he went out of his way to be helpful even when he should have been taking a break or being allowed to go to bed after a long day! He was totally adaptable to our wandering ways as photographers, keeping an eye on us as we scattered like cats after photos, giving us all the time we needed. He found the best restaurants and lodgings wherever we went. He is a dedicated, capable and totally delightful man and I hope I can return some day and see even more of this lovely country with him!”

Gianni from Italy: “I took part in a photography tour Daniel organized in rural Romania. Excellent knowledge of local history and culture! We visited off-the-beaten path places with practically no tourists around. Daniel certainly knows some of the best view points in the country, and he tailored the tour since we were a group of photographers seeking for some good landscape views, as well as people photography. One more thing to add: Daniel is a very responsible tour guide. He never interfere the privacy and comfort of the locals. Always spoke to them with a great respect and interest, so we felt we’re not intruding into anyone’s personal life. Highly recommended if you want to see real Romania!”

Enis from Turkey: “I am a professional photographer and I heard about Daniel’s tours over the Internet and I booked it right away after visiting his website. What convinced me about booking his trip was his unique approach to tourism and the promotion of rural Romania – which in my case was Transylvania region.The tour I booked was a photo-tour with other photographers around the world and I am still in touch with both Daniel and the participants since then. Daniel is a person who has intensive knowledge about history and culture of Romania. During the tour he was always interested in making the trip excellent. I highly recommend Daniel to anyone who is interested in seeing the real Romania and who is willing to experience rural living style in Romania.

Reviews of our Private Photo Tours of Romania

Linda from Canada: “Travelled for a little over two weeks, from the northern most mountain villages, zigzagging south to Bucharest. We were a small group of diverse people with a shared passion for photography. Our guide was a wonderful ambassador for his country as he showed us everyday life of the colourful Romanian people. He brought the country to life with his insights into daily life and the places he arranged for us to stay and eat. What a fantastic experience awaits you if you book with this company!”

Patrick from Hawaii, USA: “They coordinated the most amazing travel experience for my girlfriend and I. We did a 4 day cycling tour, a 3 day photography workshop and a visit to the Danube Delta and stayed with a local fisherman. It was an incredible, culturally enriching experience and we both said it was probably our favorite trip we had ever been on! Our travel agent was extremely helpful, courteous and even took the time to meet us in person. He took care of all the travel arrangments and hotel bookings. We simply told him what we would like to do and he took care of the rest! I can recommend them extremely highly for anyone that would like an authentic experience, wonderful people and come away with photos and memories for a lifetime! Thanks again so much for everything!”
