Book in advance
Why is important booking in advance? Most of the tourists in Timisoara are searching information about trips only few days before the arrival or even after. In this conditions is difficult organizing groups in such short notice. A small group means bigger price for tourists. Sometimes, when some tourists want to join a small group already formed, they can’t do it because there is no availability for van in short notice. So, booking in advance is best for everybody.
