Reviewed on TripAdvisor on August 18, 2015 by Vertaroutard from Saint Ouen, France We were 2 and hosted by Irene's hostel (very nice staff by the way) which arranged our trip to the monasteries. It is a one day trip and we were drived by a guide and stopped to the 4 most well preserved painted monasteries, plus the blackware pottery factory, and a very nice romanian specialties restaurant with a charming view on the valley. Everything was wonderful, the colors of the paintings, the views during the road trip, the food, and our guide. and all of this only for 35 euros per person (lunch included but not the tickets to the monasteries, which were about 1 euro per entry). This is such a great offer for such wonderful memories. I take this opportunity to thank our guide, Adrien, one more time, for all the explanations he gave us, for all the answers, for his remarquable knowledge upon the subjects of the monasteries and the religion, but also the romanian way of life. We've learnt so much more during this one day trip than our precedent 2 weeks in Romania. Thank you again Adrien.
