The mural of this church is remarkable being a real treasure dating from 1350. The sculptures on the walls are also very old, dating from 1405.Several towers of defence have been here before, as well as a double defence walls with several levels and a watch-road.  

Our Transylvania uncovered holidays always offer a chance to meet the locals and see cottage industries first hand. Visit a local weaver where you will get to see with your own eyes how the traditional towels are being made by hands that learned this craft from generation to generation.

Next we will drive by car to Alma Vii a charming saxon village. The trip continues by horse drawn carriage through the hills, towards the charcoal maker who lives at the border of the forest. Talking to him, we will find out the secret of his ancient craft.

 Then, a path crossing the forest will bring us back to the village where the old tower of the fortified church offers us the amazing panoramas of Transylvania. We will cross the path by carriage and we will continue our trip by car to Viscri.

Tailor made holidays to Romania truly dont get any better than this!

Day 4: Malancrav – Sighisoara – Breite plateau – Malancrav

Transylvania holidays must include a trip too Sighisoara, the best preserved medieval citadel in Europe (UNESCO heritage). Founded by Transylvanian Saxons during the 12th century, Sighisoara (Schassburg in German) still stands as one of the most beautiful and best-preserved medieval towns in Europe.

Designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this perfectly intact 16th century gem with nine towers, cobbled streets, burgher houses and ornate churches rivals the historic streets of Old Prague or Vienna for atmospheric magic. It is also the birthplace of Vlad Dracula, also known as Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler), ruler of the province of Walachia from 1456 to 1462. It was he who inspired Bram Stoker’s fictional creation, Count Dracula. His house is just one of the many attractions here.

Transylvania holidays Dracula style include the Church on the Hill with its 500-year-old frescoes, the 13th century Venetian House and the Church of the Dominican Monastery, known for its Transylvanian renaissance carved altarpiece, baroque pulpit, Oriental carpets and 17th century organ.

We continue our trip to Breite plateau where we will admire the natural beauty that Breite Ancient Oak Tree Reserve offers to all its visitors. Breite is a typical case of culturally modified forest, unique in Eastern Europe, based on a model brought by the Saxons who arrived here in the twelfth century. It is an integral part of a very original, well defined cultural vision introduced in Transylvania by the Saxon settlers.

Today’s tours in Romania concludes with a drive back to Malancrav manor. Overnight at the manor & time for another delicious tea!

Day 5: Biertan – Mosna – Nemsa - Richis – Malancrav

After breakfast your Romania active holiday really begins; first we will drive by car to Biertan. You’ll visit the medieval fortified church of Biertan, a true masterpiece built in the 16th century by Saxons. 

We will then hop on our bikes to head towards our journey today ‘Rishis‘, our final bike stop. We will pass by unique medieval villages and we will stop in Mosna where we will visit the local fortified church. Due to the settlement’s prosperity, Mosna has one of the most beautiful and biggest churches in the Tarnave valley. 

In Mosna we will visit a local cheese maker. We continue our bike tour to Richis, passing by Nemsa village. In Richis we will visit the fortified saxon church. The church from Richiş is an undeniable treasure which reveals itself step by step to the knowing eye of the visitor.

Its interior is abundant in unique animal and human motives. The most captivating is, by far, the ubiquitous figure of the “green man” seen in various stances, the “little devils” as Mr Schaas calls them. At the church you will be welcomed by Mr. Schaas, one of the few Saxons left in the village. Mr Schaas is the perfect guide; his stories about the people, the village and the church are countless and one day in his company never seems to be enough. Drive back by car to Malancrav. Overnight at the manor.

Active family holidays in Romania find this program delectable as do couples, honeymooners and small groups of friends. Please remember this is a recommended template but we can easily adjust to suit your tastes and interests.

  • About our Holidays

    Q: Who are we?
    A: Vamos Travel has a dedicated department specializing in tours. With 1000s of satisfied customers, and a large portion of our business coming from repeat business and word of mouth, we only rely on our reputation to grow as a business. 

    Q: I can’t find any fixed packages, how do we book with you?
    A: We don’t believe in putting a square peg into a round hole. We tailor make all our holidays to your travel life styles and budgets. We offer a very personal service at Vamos Travel, and one of the main reasons for our high repeat business. All clients are assigned a personal travel manager, so you do not have to deal with impersonal call centre’s. Our expert travel consultants offer informative and impartial advice, designing a bespoke experience for your needs. We can organise everything to the highest standards, because we put ourselves in your shoes. 

    Q: Why do your holidays run so successfully?
    A: We all enjoy creating wonderful tour programmes. Before we offer a city, hotel, activity or even a restaurant, we will experience it ourselves [yes! We have a tough job!]. So everything is tried, tested and loved. 

  • Accommodation

    Q: Will the accommodation be of the requested standard?
    A: We take great pride in our strong relationships with our accommodation partners and in their facilities. Our travel mangers or our long term local representatives will have always inspected & evaluated the accommodation your are staying in. Before making a booking with Vamos Travel, your account manager will have communicated the standard and room type.

    Q: Will the hotel be in a safe & well located area?
    A: Yes. This is one of our main priorities; the hotel will always be in a safe & tourist friendly area. Your enjoyment and safety is our main concern. 

    Q: What types of accommodation do you offer?
    A: Vamos travel offers a huge range of accommodation options to suit every budget and travel life style.

  • Brochures

    Q: Do you have a brochure?
    A: In line with our green eco-policies we do not produce what would be classed as a traditional paper brochure

  • Flights in general

    Q: Can we book plane tickets through your travel company?
    A: Yes. We are a fully bonded ATOL member. ATOL Protection extends primarily to customers who book and pay in the United Kingdom. 

    Q: Can we book our own flights and then book with your travel company?
    A: Yes. It is common for our customers to book their own flights especially with low cost carriers. We will simply help with the rest. 

  • Insurance

    Q: Should I take out insurance before travelling?
    A: Yes. It is extremely important that all travelers booked must have travel insurance, whilst travelling with us. Its part of our booking conditions, as we want your safety to come first.

  • Holiday information packs

    Q: When can I expect to receive my holiday information pack [example: tickets, hotel vouchers, tour information]?
    A: We send your holiday information packs 10-14 days before departure. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your 1-1 expert travel manager.

    Q: What if I have a problem abroad?
    A: For most holiday bookings, we will provide you with an emergency contact name/number, who will be able to help during difficult situations. This is not available for activity, transfer, flight ‘only’ bookings.

  • Protection & financial security

    Q: What protection can you offer us? How can I check, you’re actually a legally running UK company?
    A: Your holiday time is important, so we know there is lot at stake here!  Rest assured, we are a very real & trust worthy company. and not an internet cowboy. We are: Vamos Travel Ltd – our UK address is: Pure Offices, 54, Plato Close, Leamington Spa, CV34 6WE – England. We abide to UK laws and regulations. Make an appointment and visit us! A UK limited company has to be registered with www.companieshouse.gov.uk A legitimate travel firm should be able to provide you a companies house number. Don’t be afraid to ask for this straight away. Our company No. 4378409. Also, legitimate companies will be registered with the ‘Civil Aviation authority’ a government run scheme. Each company registered – has an ATOL number. This number can be checked on the website www.atol.org.uk – Vamos Travel Ltd – has the ATOL number 5927 

    Q: Which is better ATOL or ABTA?
    A: Both are industry recognized, and both enable you the consumer to do your research into a company’s background. Always book a holiday with a company that legitimately and directly holds one of these licenses. Remember some agents might claim they are ATOL or ABTA, simply by placing a logo on their documents! This is largely a scam, and one we keep seeing on pop up websites! Always ask for the companies official number, and check it on the UK government website – www.atol.org.uk 

    Q: Tell me more about the different forms of protection against insolvency?
    A: This is a slightly more complicated question, and it doesn’t help when one company claims that ABTA is better than ATOL (& visa versa). What ‘you’ the consumer must understand is that the organiser of a package holiday must, at all times, be able to show sufficient evidence of security for pre-payments and for repatriation in the event of insolvency. There are 4 methods currently recognized within the industry: Trust accounts, ATOL, ABTA & specialist insurances. 

    Q: How else do we know our booking will be secure, when we are abroad?
    A: Vamos Travel ltd is not only ATOL protected but we pay our suppliers & local staff before you travel. This means all your services are paid in full before you arrive in the country! Also, our company holds no bank loans or takes credit! So unlike the big travel companies [with their fancy TV adverts] going bankrupt, and giving the industry a bad name – we deliver on our payment promises! You are in safe hands.

  • Reviews

    Q: Do customers leave feedback or reviews of your holidays?
    A: Yes, we take great pride in receiving them. Each holiday program has there own review tab, so new customers can hear the voices of our past & repeat clients. Please see the ‘review’ tab button on this page. On the home page of our website, you can also locate the general review centre button.

    Q: How do I leave feedback?
    A: Some holidays we ask our clients to complete a feedback form 

    Q: Can I send feedback directly to a general manager / company director?
    A: All feedback is received by our product managers, not your 1-1 travel consultants. The feedback forms are then used for our staff’s monthly evaluations. The most praised staff during that month receives various rewards.
