    Great trip with Serban
    , Nov 2021
    Myself and one friend did this tour with our tour guide Serban. He was very knowledgable and friendly, and tried to accommodate everyone on the trip all day with different requests people had. I would definitely recommend this trip to people looking to see Transylvania and the castles there.
    The best, most personalised tour, love it.

    I couldn't fault this tour in the slightest, our tour guide made sure we had everything we needed and continued to provide more when she could. She had the greatest knowledge of the history of the castles etc and even when we asked questions she wasn't hesitant to answer... some things we knew from Google she proved wrong so couldn't fault her performance. The timing was perfectly on point so was never late and there were no tourists in the majority of my photos which was great although this was November. Our group only had three people and me and my boyfriend took up two spots but it allowed us to ask more questions which was essential. Stefania we love you your amazing. xxxxxx
    We enjoyed and was happy with this tour

    Tour guide was 10/10 and locations were beautiful. Don't make me write more to fill out a 100 characters minimum
    A long but fulfilling day in the country
    , Sep 2021
    The two castles and the beautiful countryside were wonderful as was Braşov. Our guide, Stephania, was personable and extremely knowledgeable. Although it was 14 hours long, we highly recommend this tour!
    Great Experience in Romania
    , Sep 2021
    Loved exploring Romania outside of Bucharest. This tour gave us a small, but enjoyable taste of what the country has to offer. Stefania was an amazing guide who had an extreme amount of knowledge. I would recommend her as a guide to anyone.
    excellent day tour
    , Jul 2021
    A unique experience that you should not miss during your visit to Romania. relaxing trip to beautiful places. the tour guide interpreted the story in an interesting way and gave meaning to our visit. I highly recommend it
    Outside Bucharest
    , Mar 2020
    Fabulous trip with our guide Mathew. Even with all the castles closed we got to see different parts of Romania and learn its history A small group is great as you do not have to wait around to go to your next destination
    2 castles with one ‘crazy’ guide
    , Feb 2020
    Boogie our driver and guide certainly had the gift of talking. He included us in all the jokes and stories. At the end we were all singing to his favourite tunes. Time was tight at both castles (less than advertised) but time at Braşov was longer for time to get a meal and a stroll around this lovely town. A very pleasant and memorable day trip. Would recommend TravelMakers team.
