Can you recommend a tour operator?

We diasgree with you Warlord. We have just returned from Romania.
We used a local company and not Romanian Backroads Tours.
Best is private guided tour and I can assure you no train/bus option works unless you want some quick view and skip the countryside.
We used a Bucharest based tour company with authentic reviews of travelers who do exist !! and real interesting itineraries and found them totaly decent price wise. We dismiss your comment on tour operators being very overpriced. This is not true if you make sure you use the right ones. I am saying this as future travelers better compare prices and options before they book.
On a self guided tour we would have never experienced, seen, heard and visited some of the things/places we have experienced, seen, heard and visited with our private tour guide. Our tour was custom made and we're glad we managed to get to see Romania at a time of great change before it gets too modernised.
I strongly suggest seeing Romania on a private tour with a guide.
