�our travel agency, Transilvania Tours has been operating in the Romanian travel business as a
tour operator and has been dealing with many incoming travelers eager to discover this part of
the world. The bulk of our clients are coming from Hungary but since 2001 we have started to
promote our tours in other countries, too.
Groups of travelers from Germany, Holland, United
States and Northern Europe are increasing their numbers proving that interest in
the Carpathian Mountain region known as Transylvania has grown from a relatively
naive knowledge of the Dracula inspired legend to a deepening understanding of the rich
living folk-art (traditional crafts, costumes, folk music, dance and theatre) of
this historical region.
�those willing to get acquainted with the natural beauties, history and people of Transylvania,
to discover the interwoven cultures of the Romanian, Hungarian and Saxon civilizations and to follow
the tracks of the high Carpathian mountains.
Our travelers are those who like to travel in order to discover much more than a regular travel guide
would offer; those who are seeking the roots of a nation by understanding its folklore, habits and
mentality; those who by active relaxation and willing to undertake the effort demanded by medium
difficulty hikes are in search of the beauties and wonders of the surrounding nature; those eager
to discover the undiscovered Transylvania�

groups as well as large groups, while continuing to offer the unique opportunity to stay not only
in high class and fancy hotels but also in village homes with local people. We arrange these homestays
with families and in peasant hostels where the hospitality and the local cuisine offer memories hard to

people. This also offers the chance for personal contact with the history of Romanian, Hungarian,
Saxon, German, and Gypsy peoples and cultures and all in an area where ancient Western and Eastern
Christianity meet at the top of the world.

in Hungary and Slovakia, thus giving our programs a complex Carpathian regional feature. All our tours
are unique, tailor-made programs, according to each group's interest.
