"Sitting comfortably in your seats, you, the tourists will discover how, the local area has developed from a simple peasant village at the outskirts of a town to an international tourist attraction.From the beautiful Codrii Vlăsiei, that no longer exist, to the lovely Bucharest Therme, that frees your spirit and your wallet, to the road kills that happen accidently not more than 12 times a week, to the Snagov Palace that hosts weddings and baptisms every other week, we will discover how this rich heritage contributes to bringing Romania into a green and sustainable future, making her a key player among the most developed countries in the world. Hold on to your keys and sunglasses and join her on the road of time and land travel!" The Bus Guide
