Family trip to explore heritage
Reviewed on TripAdvisor on May 15, 2015 by fgw60 We met Cip the owner by accident through his friend who drove us to Suceava. He met us in the lobby and was quick to understand our needs. He was flexible understanding and accommodating. He was punctual and honest.

“Excellent Experience”
Reviewed on TripAdvisor on August 6, 2015 by KenEs from USA The tour I took of the painted monasteries was fabulous. The guide was very knowledgeable and she provided a good balance between telling us about each monastery and giving us some time to walk around freely to take photos. I would definitely recommend Hello Bucovina Tours, it is run very professionally. The tour of the four monasteries was from about 9:00 until 17:00. The lunch on the tour was also very good, but if you order dessert (cheese pancake?), be aware the portions are quite large--consider sharing. I also stayed at the new hostel run by Ciprian, the owner of Hello Bucovina tours. The hostel was very centrally located in Suceava and it was quite clean and comfortable. Since I was spending three nights in the hostel I was even picked up from and dropped off at the train station.

“Very interesting trip around the Bucovine’s monasteries”
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.

Weekend in Bucovina

Untouched, extensive forests. A mysterious blue prevailing in UNESCO-listed monastery frescoes. Ancient black pottery techniques. Mouth-watering dishes and spit-fire shots. Egg painting. Crazy dances and a captivating vibe.
