What we believe in...

"Better Places to Live, Better Places to Visit"

We Provide Experiences To You

We aim to provide our guests with a holiday experience they will never forget. We believe that this can only be achieved through proper planning and implementation of our tour packages. Our goal is not just to meet our guest’s expectations but to exceed them.

Community Engagement

We contribute to improving the quality of life in the community – not just locally, but on a national scale, by continuously and actively recognising the role that our business plays in society.​

Together We Contribute to Economic Improvement

By operating our business on a reasonable financial basis of profitable growth, we provide several career opportunities to the local community and offer benefits and rewards for all employees. This is something that we consistently achieve.

At Beyond Romania Travel, we are always looking for new and creative ideas to accomplish our mission whilst upholding deep respect for people – regardless of whether they are part of the community or not.​


At Beyond Romania Travel, we consider everyone to be like family. We recognise that each of us has a role to contribute and these roles must be performed well. We value everyone and always treat each other with respect.


We constantly strive to improve our service and never allow the quality of our service to be compromised. Our goal is to exceed our client’s expectations – something we have undoubtedly already achieved and will always be proud of.​

Responsible Tourism

Travel isn’t just about having a great time with friends and loved ones. It also encompasses a deeper relationship between the visitors and the locals to promote economic, social, and cultural growth while preserving the natural environment. 

We believe tourism can be a means of giving something back to the community while having the time of your life. With this in mind, our visitors get a chance to immerse themselves with the locals and experience all the wonderful, unique things that Romania has to offer. 

The goal of Beyond Romania Travel is to promote responsible tourism throughout the country by providing tours that we selected, created, and reviewed carefully ourselves. We conduct thorough research when creating the tours, to ensure we choose activities and experiences that will be financially beneficial for the local people in the places we visit, while ensuring our guests have an amazing time too of course!

Some examples of how we conduct our tours with responsible tourism in mind are:

  • Our team has extensive knowledge in the regions of Romania where we offer our tours.
  • We encourage our guests to engage with the locals such as villagers, craftsmen and farmers
  • We promote local businesses by introducing our guests to warm, hearty (and delicious!) local cuisines that reflect the culture and tradition of Romania.

Behind it all…

You might be wondering why we feel there is a need for us to do this. Romania is filled with beautiful and traditional regions that are not yet fully developed. This country has shown endless potential that could easily surpass neighbouring countries and we want to help. Beyond Romania Travel strives to preserve the beauty of the country, so we support the communities by presenting economic opportunities via tourism.

About me

come as a tourist, leave as a friend.

gabriel murgu founder beyondromania

Gabriel Murgu


With over 13 years of experience in the hospitality, tourism, and travel industry, [you] were always passionate about providing travelers with unique and meaningful experiences. In 2010, [you] took a bold step and moved to the UK to pursue a Master’s Degree in Sustainable Tourism Management in Cambridge. After my studies, I had the opportunity to work with the Leeds Beckett University on consultancy research projects in responsible tourism marketing, events, and digital marketing.

However, I always felt a deep connection to my home country, Romania, and its untapped beauty and rich heritage. In 2019, I came up with the idea of BeyondRomania, a travel business that would offer travelers a different way of experiencing this beautiful destination. I cashed out my savings, took a loan, and secured EU funds to launch my business.

After months of hard work and planning, BeyondRomania finally opened its doors to travelers in 2019. I was thrilled to be able to share [your] love for Romania and provide travelers with unforgettable experiences. However, just 4 months after launching the business, the world was hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, and [you] were forced to temporarily close down BeyondRomania.

Huh, that was taught! But is live, unpredictable things happens.

Despite the setback, I remained optimistic and determined to overcome the challenges posed by the pandemic. I used the time to reflect on my vision for BeyondRomania and decided to pivot the business. Today, BeyondRomania is no longer just a travel business, but a comprehensive informational resource about Romania, dedicated to showcasing the beauty and richness of this incredible destination to the world. Through my firsthand knowledge and passion for Romania, I aim to provide travelers with all the information they need to plan a memorable trip to this beautiful country.
