Great job by Alex! Bring 50 Lei cash per person for Peles, and expect to pay for Bran castle online, but that website was kind of show.

Lovely sites but you are in a car all day, and the vehicle they provide is far too small for such a day of traveling. Price is decent but you will also still pay additional for all sites.

Dear Megan, Thank you for your review. We take into consideration all reviews in order to improve all of our services. We use only brand new minivans (2022) as mentioned in other reviews by our guests and they are designed to have more legroom than a standard sedan or a coach/bus. Additional payment for entrance fees is stated on description of our trip. We are balancing the time spent at each location and we are managing to get more time at the locations than in the minivan, even with heavy traffic during holiday season. Unlike other companies that provide the same trip with coach/small bus (30 seats) we manage to finish this trip in 11-12 hours compared to 14-15 hours with the bus and offer more time at the locations this being the reason why we provide the trip with a maximum of 8 guests. We wish you safe travels!

Fun Historical day trip to get out of the City. Beautiful castles/stops

Such a great Trip! our tour group was 6 (3 x 2s) so not too big. our tour guide Ovi picked us up really close to the hotel in Old Town Bucharest and was a brilliant guide the whole day. Gave us a full course in Romanian History, and was very knowledgeable with facts and stories about all the different castles and stops on the visit. It made the day very fun and social. Small detail, but his English was perfect as well. We were in Bucharest but would highly recommend doing this day trip for anyone staying in the city. great way to spend a full day and completely different to the Eastern Block communist history of Bucharest!

Thank you to Andrei for an excellent tour of Peles Castle, Brasov, the Black Church and walking tour of Brasov, and Draculas Castle! We greatly appreciate Andrei’s outstanding organizing, driving, and information through out the day. Andrei is an excellent tour guide and driver! He was so helpful and pleasant all day long and was always going above and beyond to make sure our experience was the best! Our tour exceeded our expectations thanks to Andrei! The one day tour is a great way to enjoy Transylvania and the Carpathian Mountains. It is a long day but definitely worth it especially with our outstanding tour guide Andrei! Thanks for everything Andrei! Ann Marie, Bud and Jacqueline

The tour guide did a no show and played innocent the hotel receptionist was there to witness, this was a scam

Dear Ian and Patricia Kennedy, Thank you for your review. We take into account each review in order to improve our services. Your review comes as a shock considering that we received an e-mail on July 20th from certain 'Ian' although we had Patricia K as a lead traveler on the booking, stating that there are two eldery parents on the booking with no acces to email or WhatsApp and if we can send a SMS Text about the pick-up time on provided phone number +35366*** which we did and we also e-mailed 2 days before the trip about pick-up time but in the morning you were a no show with no answer on the provided phone number and as it happens we had 4 other guests from same hotel who were precisely on time. We then received a phone call at 8:31 from a phone number +35386*** stating that you are Patricia Kennedy on the booking and that you have been waiting from 7:30 at the hotel and no one came to pick-up although the minivan was there at 7:40 am and did not miss the other 4 guests plus waited for 10 minutes to try to get you on the phone number that was wrongly provided on your email from July 20th. Upon receiving your phone call you stated that you are at the train station to go to Brasov and that you want a full refund which we offered in order to settle the matter. We also noticed that on your booking at special requirements you have stated 'We need to be dropped in Brasov when the tour is complete as are staying in Brasov that night' . It takes a lot more than 30 minutes to reach the train station from your mentioned hotel, have the train ticket bought (usually they are fully booked days before) and board the train at 8:30, therefore we deduct that it was your intention not to join the tour. We have e-mailed 2 days before with pick-up time, sent text message and phone called several times from different phone numbers. If tour guide was a no show, then how did you know that he played innocent as well as how did the reception of the hotel knew the same, if said tour guide was not there. We wish you safe travels!

This tour was definitely one of the best I've ever had. Bogdan did an amazing job explaining all the historical facts and curiosities about the places, but above all he made the trip so chill and easygoing, it almost looked like we were just a bunch of friends hanging out on a road trip, it was fantastic and I would definitely recommend him! We had so much fun and learnt a lot about this beautiful country.

Our tour guide, Bogdan, was super knowledgeable, friendly, and very funny. Our group really enjoyed the Peleș Castle the most. It is filled to the brim with history and intricate details. It’s truly a once in a lifetime experience! The town of Brașov was the perfect place for lunch or a quick stop at the Black Church. The final destination, Bran Castle, was equally enjoyable in its own way. It’s filled with both historical and mythical scenes. I highly recommend this tour. Their new van was also well air conditioned and very comfortable for the 8 of us on the tour.

Great Small Group Tour at a Great Price!

Great price for a great tour. Bogdon was a personable and informative guide. Both castles were interesting and Brasov was a very lovely stop for lunch. The van was clean and comfortable and our guide/driver was top-notch. I cannot begin to express how much I appreciate the small group tour opportunity that this option provided. The description of this tour truly reflects what you experience.

Emanuel Rules
Colleen_M
, Jul 2022
Emanuel was the actual greatest. He got us to Peles before all the crowds and it was an excellent tour with no lines. The group size was definitely great, just 6 of us and he says he usually doesn't have more than 8. He had lots of awesome info about the castles and Romanian history. The countryside and moutians that we got to see were beautiful. I would a million percent recommend this tour to anyone, especially with Emanuel.
