Tours in Transylvania!

Toursylvania might be the best thing that you are looking for if you try to mix Tours and Transylvania. This is not a big touristic company, but a one man business. I am based in the unofficial capital of Transylvania, the city of Cluj Napoca. My passion is to design adventurous, unique tours for small groups (1-4 people). My motto: “From Cluj-Napoca into the legends”.

My Idea of exploring a country is to do it on my own: no schedule and no fixed routes. If I feel like stopping on the side of the road for a great landscape to just do it. Also sometimes I like getting lost a little to embrace the new experience. But when vampires are supposed to haunt my destination … I might need a friend with me, one that knows the surroundings.

Toursylvania is not all about tours in Transylvania, it is about exploring Transylvania along with a friend. I have a small car that can comfortably carry me and 2 to 3 other people. If necessary I rent a bigger car. I also enjoy driving a lot, I think this is my second passion. More about me here.

How about you? Either you want to learn more about communism, or you are interested in old citadels, or nature and wilderness, or maybe you want to explore some of the traditional life-style in the countryside. We can plan it together. If you have something in mind do not hesitate to send me a message.

If you need some inspiration, please check my Things to see page, you’ll see some nice places to visit in Transylvania.

Arm yourself with good shoes and good vibes and let’s start the adventure.

About me!

Hi, my name is Alexandru Dan, but my friends call me Alex. In 2015 I got my official travel guide certificate.

I am 35 y.o. and I am fascinated by the surrounding world and its legends. I managed to graduate physics and psychology, up until I found my true passion: to be a storyteller 😊

So here I am in pursuit of my life-dream. My first project is Hoia Baciu Project  My friend Marius and I started it in the winter of 2013. We are so proud of it 😀 especially when we read the reviews on TripAdvisor.

The Guardian“, “The Independent” and more recently “ABC News” promised to make me famous 😲, and even if that happens, I will always answer your messages.


Corvin Castle, Deva Citadel, Alba Iulia day trip! My boyfriend and I booked a day trip online to visit Corvin Castle and Alba Iulia Citadel. We had no expectations as we had not read any reviews. What a fantastic risk it was… a wonderful trip and attentive host. Alex is a chilled, easy to talk … Continue reading Amie K

Spooky, awesome night tour! Booked this on very short notice, so I was really happy to get in, the tour itself was highly informative and scary (in a good way. Alex knew ALOT about the place and it’s history, and was the perfect guide to keeping my overly imaginative mind in place, Highly recommended
