FAQ

CAN YOU DO A PRIVATE TOUR FOR 1 OR 2 PERSONS?

Yes, we can – feel free to contact us with your requirements to enable us to give you a quote.

DO YOU GO IN BAD WEATHER?

The tour will continue unless extreme weather conditions make travel too hazardous. However, we may adjust the route as necessary after discussion with the participants.

CAN MY WIFE AND I GO ON TOUR IF SHE IS PREGNANT?

It is definitely not advisable for pregnant women to join an offroad tour, and we would not recommend any travel during the latest stages of pregnancy.

CAN CHILDREN GO ON TOURS?

Children are welcome to come along, but we wouldn’t recommend bringing very young children on offroad tours.

CAN I RESCHEDULE, ONCE I HAVE BOOKED A TOUR?

We would make every effort to reschedule your tour to a mutually convenient date, without additional charge.

HOW BIG CAN GROUPS BE?

Normally we tour with a maximum of 7 vehicles (including up to 2 Guide vehicles). Should the group be larger, we would split it and run the tour staggered by 1 or 2 hours to reduce the impact of the convoy on the environment and keep it more manageable.

DO YOU OFFER ANY DISCOUNTS?

Yes we do – please have a look at the Pricing page where you will find various discounts for different situations.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE OFFROAD TOUR AND SIGHTSEEING TOUR?

Offroad tours, in 4X4 vehicles, spend at least 80% travel away from metalled road surfaces. Sightseeing tours in air-conditioned vehicles travel mainly on metalled roads plus some classified minor roads and tracks. For more information please check the Tours section.

WHAT IS THE STANDARD TIP IN ROMANIA?

When visiting bars and restaurants it is normal, but not obligatory, to tip around 10%. The staff in these establishments are normally earning a salary of little more than 200 euros a month (full time working) and their tips are a huge part of their income. Please be careful not to say “thank you” when they take your payment if you are expecting any change. The “thank you” is generally considered to be the end of the transaction and whatever change is left is their tip.

HOW DO I BOOK A TOUR?

The Booking link on the Pricing page will navigate to a booking form which asks all the relevant questions to ensure we can take your booking. Alternatively call or email us with your requirements.

ARE THERE ANY PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS?

Offroad tours travel over very rough ground so can be quite painful for people who have, for example, a bad back condition. Otherwise, if you are physically able to get in and our of your vehicle and believe you can cope with the rigours of rough ground, you may wish to experience the freedom of offroading.

CAN YOU PICK ME UP FROM MY HOTEL?

Yes, we can collect you from anywhere in Romania on the same pricing schedule as airport transfers.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING ON MY TOUR?

Please check the Info page which contains a list of the minimum equipment you should bring.

HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL GO IN A VEHICLE?

For your comfort we normally only have 3 people (plus driver) per vehicle. More can be seated together should you wish.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OFFROAD TOURS IN OUR 4X4 VEHICLE OR YOURS?

The tour itinerary is exactly the same, but if you bring your own vehicle there will be a price reduction as shown on the Pricing page.

WHAT CURRENCY DO YOU ACCEPT?

We can accept payment in Pounds Sterling (GBP), Euros (EUR) or Romanian Lei (RON).

ALCOHOL ON YOUR TOURS?

We do not have an anti-alcohol policy on our tours. However, you must consider the following:
In Romania there is a ZERO blood alcohol level tolerance by law.
We will not allow anyone to drink and drive on our tours but do like to enjoy a few drinks each evening while relaxing together.
We would recommend that passengers who can drive should also refrain from drinking during the day in case they are called upon to drive.
