Many of our volunteers wish to travel outside of Brasov to explore some of the neighboring towns, castles and caves. We do offer tours to a few of the most popular areas. There is a fee of 50lei per person, and trips last between 2-4 hours.
If you would like to take a tour, it is requested that you communicate with the volunteer coordinator once in Romania (at least a week in advance), as your schedule will then be set and availability varies.
