Handcrafted, Private Tours to Romania


You want to do things your way. We get it. MIR has been planning custom, private tours from scratch for over three decades, and we understand just how important flexibility is in travel.

Traveling privately on a custom private tour affords a great deal of flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, to go at your own pace, and to travel when it’s right for you.

How does it work? We’ll connect you with one of our Private Tour Designers so that you can share your vision and expectations with us.

We’ll ask you questions to better learn about your interests: Want to descend some 400 feet into the halls of a Salt mine? How about a private brandy tasting at the home of a local family who have been making brandy for more than three centuries?

We’ll share our extensive experience in the region – and our suggestions. And then we’ll dig into it and custom-craft a private tour itinerary for your review. Give us a call at 800-424-7289 to get started, or click here to be on your way.

Signature Experiences

Below are just a few examples of the signature experiences that MIR can arrange for you in Romania. Let them be a source of inspiration, then get in touch with one of our Private Tour Designers to craft an itinerary that’s uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.

  • Visit a small working Romanian farm, viewing the grounds, gardens, and animals. Learn how their unique dulce de leche sauce is made, and enjoy a meal in the farmhouse courtyard.
  • Celebrate Halloween in one of the world’s spookiest places: Bran’s 14th-century “Dracula’s Castle,” perched atop a cliff high above this Transylvanian town.
  • Attend a pottery workshop in Saschiz and learn about the history of its renowned cobalt blue pottery from a local artisan, observing the 18th century “sgraffito” (scratch) techniques used to create pots, plates, and vases. Then, try your hand at making your own piece.

Suggested Private Tours

And if you don’t feel that a fully-customized trip is what you seek, we’ve got the perfect solution. Whether you’re looking for a compact trip that hits the highlights or something more in depth, MIR offers suggested private tours that can be adapted to your choice of dates. Our itinerary, your dates – it’s a great option whether you’re traveling solo, as a couple, or in a small group.
