A great trip. Our driver Alin was informative, incredibly knowledgeable, but also fun! The day was great, starting at Peles Castle, on to Bran and then a late lunch in Brasov. We are both so glad we did this trip - and cheers to Alin for making it a memorable experience!

This was a last-minute trip to Romania so I really had no expectations or time to plan. This tour was the perfect way to have everything taken care of, get out of Bucharest, see a bit of the countryside, and visit some important sites. The castles were actually very cool and Andrei our guide was great. Recommend.

We where picked up on time and brought to our first stop. The magical and hugely impressive Peles Castle. After a informative tour around the castle we continued our itinerary. We visited Brasov and finally reached Bran Castle to rub shoulders with Dracula. Brilliant day all round and an only made better by our brilliant guide/driver Andrei. I would highly recommend this tour! It’s a long day but totally worth it!

Highly recommended for a day tour of some of the key tourist attractions accessible from Bucharest! Super responsive tour coordinator, a friendly and knowledgeable local guide on the day of (Andrei was great!) and great sites to visit throughout the day. While it's a long day (13 hours) and half the time spent on the road, you won't regret this. Great way to spend a day and better understand the areas you can spend more time at later on.

The trip was a delight. Our guide, Emanuel was well informed, humourous and accomodating. The vehicle was comfortable and the trip itself surpassed my expectations. I wish we could have spent +0.5 hour in each destination but it was already a big trip.. All in all, I wholeheartedly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Bucharest!

Good tour

This was a good trip. Peles castle and Brasov were much more impressive than Bran's castle. We had lunch in Brasov. However, due to traffic we were in the car for 4 hours driving home. You spend half the day in the car driving, and half the day seeing the sights.

Dear Ankita, Thank you for your review! We always take into account all received reviews and we are glad that you chosen our company for your travels to Romania. Unfortunately on weekends traffic is intense around the mountains as locals are travelling but we rely on the fantastic views thru the mountains as move from location to location. Your date of travel was on a sunday when more people are heading back to Bucharest. Distances between locations can go as far as 125 km and we try our best to reduce your time in the van but we not always succed. However the views in the mountains as we go up or descend are fantastic and it's hard to escape all traffic around the ski resorts. Thank you,

Peles Castle was most impressive. The rest = not so much. Brasov was Ok; nothing special. Bran Castle, likewise, nothing special.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Dear Jeremy, Thank you for your review. We appreciate and always take in consideration all received reviews. The guide reported that you didn't enjoy the Bran and Brasov as much as you did the Peles. Tastes are not subject of debate and we try our best to deliver a great tour. Thank you for choosing our company for your travels.

I cannot rate this tour more highly. Andrei was a first-rate tour guide and his passion for history, culture, and his country was infectious. The places are really beautiful and the tour makes it easy to go between them. The drives are long but Andrei made them fly by recounting stories of Romania and the points of interest we passed. While on the tour I discovered I needed a last minute PCR test before boarding my flight. Andrei was able to recommend and book me a fast test and even helped me chase the results the next day - absolute hero!
