I'm not sure I understand the question but if you mean is it easy to get to Snagov by bus then the answer is yes. You don't need a tour - it's an easy minibus ride from the Bucharest Bus Station. And Romanians are so friendly that you'll have no trouble at all finding the right bus and then getting off at the right stop. Once you're off the bus it's about a 15 minute walk down the road to the Island. The only thing to consider is the low frequency of direct buses back. Make sure you know the return time table (the driver will tell you) but there's always other buses that just go back by a longer route. All very easy. I did write a review about Snagov in October last year. There might be more information there. Have fun. Romania is a great place to trave around.

There is now a bridge on the north side (Feb 2015). We drove to the bridge, parked and walked across. Appears to be one person living there who collects a small fee, don't recall how much. No tours that I saw. Not sure of when it is open or closed. Long story, we didn't program our GPS properly so it took us to the south side. We were able to ask people and navigate around the lake to the location of the bridge. Since we don't speak Romanian and they didn't speak English well, it was challenging, but fun.
