Exploring Romania with a Food Tour

Rich in traditions. Diverse. Delicious. These three words best describe Romanian cuisine. Nicolae Klepper, an American author who has published non-fiction books on Romanian cookery and history wrote in his book “Taste of Romania”: “The central characteristic of the Romanian cuisine is its great variety. It is a cuisine influenced by repeated waves of different cultures: the ancient Greeks, with whom Romanians traded; the Romans, who gave the country its name; the Saxons, who settled in southern Transylvania; the Turks, who for centuries dominated Romania; as well as Slavic and Magyar neighbors. All of these influences gradually blended into the varied and delicious Romanian culinary tradition.” So, a wide spread saying that the most fruitful way to the country’s heart is through its stomach is absolutely true of Romania.

Offering Private Tours and Shore Excursions in Constanta, Varna, Nessebar and Burgas – Our First Year Anniversary in these Ports

Launching private tours and shore excursions in Constanta (Romania), Varna, Nessebar & Burgas (Bulgaria) late 2014 was quite a risk. Those who are in the travel industry know that most cruise lines cancelled Black Sea sailings for 2015.

With the first year of operations now being over, we can say with complete confidence that we coped with the risks. More so, succeeded. “Exceptional response to email reservations, no deposit required, great transportation, superb guide, diverse tour, & delicious food. YES!..” “The food tour in Constanta, the first of this kind they had offered, was a resounding success…”. “We had lots of laughs, and I saw and experienced many interesting things. Victoria was very knowledgeable and her driver was experienced and safe”… These are just a few of the customer reviews we’ve got throughout the year.

Having called at Constanta (Romania) and Varna (Bulgaria) a week ago, ms Prinsendam (Holland America cruise line) closed the 2015 cruise season in the Black Sea. So, it’s now time to sum up its results.

How did this season go for us? Honestly, much better than the last year’s. While we certainly missed all the 100 cruise ship calls, which we used to get in 2012 and 2013, we were thrilled to welcome those few, which called on Odessa, Constanta and Bulgarian Varna, Nessebar and Burgas this year. And we tried to make the most out of the situation both for the travelers and ourselves.
