Amazing tour takes you to Bran castle in Transylvania

Our guide was Marius, he was very friendly and knowledgeable about all the sights we visited! He picked me up promptly at my hotel and it was a very clean and comfortable van. The tour was amazing Peles Castle and Bran castle are incredible! He recommended a delicious restaurant in Brosov. He’s a very confident driver and handled those curvy roads like a champ! I never felt rushed and he made sure we had a great time! He even handled an incident with another driver who had road rage very calmly. I highly recommend this tour it’s reasonably priced and very organized. Thank you 😊

An Absolutely Perfect Trip

Everything about this trip was perfect! Our guide, Emmanuel was incredibly knowledgeable about everything to do with Romania, and about our specific destinations. The trip was timed perfectly to avoid crowds and to ensure we saw as much as possible in just one day. Every stop, the castles and Brasov were INCREDIBLE!! Each castle is unique, one filled with opulence and one that previously had been a fortress so you got a bit of everything. Brasov was beautiful around the holidays, the Black Church was a must see and we had the opportunity to have traditional Romanian food in the city! I would recommend this trip to anyone and everyone and wouldn’t change a thing. Huge shout out to the best, most passionate tour guide, Emmanuel! He made the entire trip!

Amazing tour, a must do!

Loved this trip so much, its a long day from Bucharest but so worth it. You stop at Peles Castle first which is in the middle of a forest. The day was a frosty but sunny one at Peles Castle the back drop against the blue sky was amazing, it’s so opulent there. Next stop was Brasov, we went to the old town, it was a beautiful little medevil old town, very pretty. The last stop was Bran castle, which isn’t as pretty as Peles but is beautiful in its own right, it’s meant to be slightly more haunting though right? Marius our guide was great, he talked to us about the history of all of the place and was funny too, it was especially amusing when he was musing on the drive about bad drivers :-). In all a great day, highly recommended.

We had a phenomenal time on this tour. It is the perfect way to see some highlights in Transylvania. Andrei is an incredible and knowledgeable guide. We had plenty of time to see everything on the tour and to relax and enjoy ourselves. It was a fabulous day and we highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get out of Bucharest for a day and see a little more of this beautiful country!

We really enjoyed our tour with Emanuel. Pick up was at the time given in advance and we were updated when he would be arriving. Emanuel was very friendly, kept the long journeys both lighthearted and interesting, and wanted everyone to get the most possible out of the tours. Would highly recommend!

Gorgeous sights and amazing tour guide. Essential tour if you're staying in Bucharest!

Andrei was a great tour guide talking us through everything we were seeing from the minibus while travelling. Peles castle was the first stop and it was absolutely beautiful and so worth visiting. Andrei gave us very interesting facts as we went from room to room and later we got some free time to go to a cafe overlooking the gardens. Then we travelled to Brasov where we got a small walking tour and then some free time to explore and visit shops and eat. Draculas castle was up next and then we finished by travelling back to Bucharest. Highly recommend this tour- its very cheap for a full day experience which is absolutely essential if you’re staying in Bucharest. Was the highlight of our Romania trip.
