This ended up a good experience but started off on rocky ground. We arrived at 11.00am as per the booking to find no tour guide. We phoned the local agency who said that they hadn't received the booking from Viator, but they would see if they could find a guide and would call me back. They were very quick to phone back and advised that they could have a guide for us by 12.00 which we accepted... and we were so pleased that we did. Ioana was wonderful and very informative on the history of Brasov and many of the buildings that we visited. Without her we wouldn't have seen St Nicholae Orthodox Church with its spectacular interior - a sight not to be missed - which is actually outside of the old town walls. If you want to do this trip I would recommend contacting the local agent the day before.
Our tour guide in Sighisoara was Charles and he was an absolute mine of information on the history of this beautiful city. The tour included everything we had hoped to see including the covered steps to the Church on the Hill. If you want to go into the church there is an added charge of 8 lei around 2.00 and this includes being able to take photos inside. We walked through the cemetery Charles will ask if you are ok with this and down the hill past some of the guild towers. I think this was better than going back down via the covered steps. Charles wasn't in a hurry and even extended our tour as we were so interested in the history. Great experience and well worth the cost.
An excellent experience. Our guide forgot her name, sorry was very friendly and knowledgeable and also a very careful driver - the weather wasn't ideal with rain and a lot of dense fog. She even managed to get us inside the Black Church after closing time we got to Brasov a bit late, which was great. The Castle tour was interesting as was the visit to Brasov. Highly recommended.
The tour was brilliant. Our guide was really friendly and taught us a lot of interesting facts. It was definitely worth booking the trip rather than sorting our own transport. Bran castle was great, amazing gothic looking. Brasov was good, and the black church is very interesting and impressive.
We toured with Marius from South Carpathian Travel Centre. He was engaging and shared his knowledge from the beginning of the tour. We liked the tour as it brought us through different time periods in Romania's history: Sarmizegetusa Regia during the Dacians and Romans, Corvin Castle which is medieval, and Alba Iulia which is a mixture of Roman and medieval. Do note that the tour will be a bit long due to the far distances between each location: minimum of 1.5-2.5 hours driving time between each location. We started off with going to Sarmizegetusa Regia which will give different views depending on which season you visit. We were there in winter and many of the stones were still blanketed with snow - the silver lining was that it offered us with amazing winter wonderland photos. And the sacred zone of the area was still visible like Stonehenge but with timber posts. We then headed to what was our highlight of the tour - Corvin Castle in Hunedoara. It has to be one of the largest medieval castles we have ever seen! Favourite castle in Romania for sure. The tour ended with a walk-around Alba Iulia, which has an interesting star-shaped fortress to witness. Highly recommend this tour but the long drives and also the 1 km hike to Sarmizegetusa Regia will make it a tiring day. Marius was entertaining and even shared with us aspects of Communist life in Romania and told us about the Dacia car.
Excellent trip! We really got the full package of wonderful trips, accommodation and transport and Adrian our local guide and driver was fully experienced and knowledgeable about everything there was to know about the area's history, nature, and hospitality.
Our guide Adrian was superb. He told us more about Romanian history and culture than we had ever wanted to know. But strangely, it left us wanting to know more. He took us to experience local restaurants, featuring local cuisine and musicians who played songs just for us. We toured Bucharest, Romania's capital city, including the massive Palace of the Parliament. In the countryside we toured a fortress dating back to the 12th century. Bran castle-Dracula's castle- in Transylvania was wonderful. Adrian walked us past a very long line of people waiting to get in, making us feel like rock stars. The hotel Acasa la Dracula was excellent and so was the restaurant at the hotel. We walked through the town square in the town of Brasov and Adrian took us to the Black Church, a very ornate church dating from the 1400s. The four of us took this tour for Dracula's castle, but we fell in love with Romania and want to go back.
