I am taking a day tour to 3 castles from brasov. I understand that tips is expected for the tour guide. Coming from country where tipping is not the norm, can someone advise how much should the the tip be. I dont want to offend the guide by giving too little or "offending" me by giving too much :)
arriving by cruise ship, heard that Constanta is not worth doing a walking tour, city is not very nice to visit, is that true? Other option is doing a ships tour.
after organizing several international paragliding events in Romania, we have put together the answers to the questions our competitors asked us about Romania and some other info and issued the 3rd edition of our Independent's Traveler Guide to Romania which, we think, might be very useful to people interested in traveling in Romania, especially because it contains a lot of info and hints that you are not going to find in other/conventional guides.
You can download it for free from the homepage of www.logisticpartner.ro
Will be living Minreva hotel to Otopeni airport on November 27 flight scheduled 06:00 AM gruop of 4. Therefore need a taxi at 03:00 AM. Is it a problem order cabs by night from hotel? Night fare?
My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to Sinaia to see the Peles castle and watch the beautiful scenery, and was thinking of maybe going in January. However, I am a bit worried that it might be freezing at that time of year. Does anyone know what the temperature and wind conditions are likely to be in this area in January?
I would also be grateful if anyone knows wether it is suitable to explore some of the surrounding area by foot, or if one needs skis.
We are a group planning to spend a week in Sinaia in February.
We are interested in activities like snowmobile ride, snowshoes walking and also wish to take private ski lessons.
Unfortunately, I was unable to find sufficient information on your site.
Can you please help getting some info about all these things?
Thanks a lot!
I have a flight outof otopeni at 2pm mid december(cant miss this). I plan to take a train from brasov 7.10 arriving bucharest 10.04 the same morning and then take a bus to airport. I know no one can predict the weather on that day but in general how reliable is the train on this route in december? Would I be better off taking an earlier train (It's at 5.10 arriving bucharest 8.30) or is there a bus that goes direct from brasov to otopeni?

Leaving for Romania, is it fairly easy to find authentic local crafts to bring home?
I am about to relocate in Bucharest and I am looking for any links to rent a flat without using a real agent.
I have been reading about how dishonest Bucharest taxi drivers are and I wonder if Sibiu drivers are as bad. Two of us need to get from the train station to the Hilton (and back), and I would like suggestions on the best, and cheapest way to do that.
I have read numerous articles about transferring from Bucharest AP to downtown, but I am totally confused. I need to transfer 2 people from the Airport to the train station (express bus 780), and then back from downtown to airport (express bus 783). What ticket/tickets do I need (one or two each direction?), how do I get them, and can I pay by credit card? Please be as specific as possible as I understand nothing is in engish.
I understand that 783 and 780 are "express" busses, so do I need to buy a special ticket for them and if yes from where and how much is it?
We will be staying a couple of days in September at Athenee Palace Hilton. does anyone have any recommendations of reasonably good, reasonably priced restaurants within easy walking distance.
What are some of the local products as far as foods..drinks..cosmetics that are good to buy for souvenirs and own use?? I try to steer clear of very touristy stuff.
Also can bottled water be easily found out and about? I do not know if they have kiosks on streets with water and as we do here in Athens.
Where can stamps be found besides post office?
r there x rated strip clubs there

I find contradictory information about the bus 783 going from Otopeni to the centre of Bucharest. Some sites say it circulates from 5am to 23.30pm, but the link at the airport site says it circulates all night. I arrive at Otopeni at 1.30 am, shall I presume there will be 783 bus at that time or its better not to count on it?
I cannot find any romanian website about their trains and schedules in English. I wonder how long the trip will take and how much it's going to cost. I would really appreciate any help! From Bisericani I'd like to go to Bran near Brasov, so it's not just about one train. :)
