Romania Tours and Bulgaria Tours

Welcome to Balkan Trails!Romania tours, Bulgaria tours

Our names are Vlad and Zoe Trestian, and we have been working in the travel industry for over 10 years, leading tours to Central & Eastern Europe and in particular to Romania and Bulgaria. Over the last few years, we have welcomed many travelers, and the fact that at present, about 50% of all new bookings for our tours to Romania and Bulgaria come from referrals from former clients is a testimony to the quality of our services.

After organizing and leading hundreds of tours in Eastern and Central Europe, we firmly believe that taking a private tour is the best way to travel and discover a country. The  itineraries of our Romania and Bulgaria tours are fully customizable, you enjoy the personable service of a knowledgeable private guide and private air conditioned transportation, and the whole tour is built around you and your travel companions. Visit only the sights you are interested in, spend as much time as you want to visit them, and enjoy the flexibility only a private tour can offer you.

Over the last years, we have often been on the road ourselves, looking for places and features that would offer you unique experiences that would offer a “behind the scenes” experience during your trip with us. As a result, we are proud to say that our tours of Romania and Bulgaria offer you discovery experiences that are difficult to offer on regular bus tours, such as visits of local markets in remote villages in the countryside, opportunities to meet the local people and have a genuine experience by enjoying home hosted meals in various regions of Romania and Bulgaria, and also opportunities to meet local craftsmen and artisans, which add a lot of cultural value to your traveling experience.

Eastern Europe has just reopened for travelers, after being cut off from the rest of the world for 50 years in the 20th century, due to the Communist rule. Joining us on one of our tours of Bulgaria and Romania will allow you to discover a unique culture and history, since this area has always been at the crossroads between Central Europe and Byzantium. Beautiful nature, impressive fortresses (such as the Tsarevets in Veliko Tarnovo, or the Suceava fotress), astonishing monasteries (among which the famous painted monasteries in Bucovina, or the Rila Monastery in Bulgaria) and quaint, small villages where time seems to have stopped.

Looking forward to showing you our part of the world!
