Pleasant Holidays Adds Bucharest, Romania to Its Europe Packagesby Daniel McCarthy /
Pleasant Holidays and Journese are expanding its European offerings with the addition of Bucharest, Romania.
The destination, which is a key embarkation and disembarkation point for Danube River Cruises, marks the 25th country in the Pleasant and Journese portfolio.
The brands already offer some tours, including Private Day Trip to Dracula's Castle, Panoramic Bucharest Tour, Full-Day Bucharest & Parliament Palace, and more coming in 2023, in Bucharest. The two will now expand their offerings.
Pleasant is adding reservations at six Bucharest hotels ranging from 3- to 5-stars, including Hilton Garden Inn Bucharest Old Town, Moxy Bucharest Old Town, and Sheraton Bucharest Hotel. In addition, Pleasant and Journese will now both offer reservations at InterContinental Athénée Palace Bucharest, JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel, and The Marmorosch Bucharest, Autograph Collection.
As part of the news, Pleasant and Journese will also offer land transfers to and from Giurgiu and other cruise ports, as well as to and from Bucharest Henri Coanda International Airport (OTP).
“Bucharest is conveniently close to a number of ports along the lower Danube River and a favorite pre- and post-cruise destination,” said Jack E. Richards, President and CEO.
“Romania also boasts lush river valleys, majestic mountain ranges, historic churches and awe-inspiring palaces and castles dating as far back as the 13th Century. It’s an ideal addition to our Europe lineup at a time when the continent is proving highly popular with U.S. travelers.”
