The two castles and fort were all really interesting in different ways, and all worth the visit. Unfortunately doing all three at the peak of tourist season meant long drives stuck in heavy traffic at the hottest time in the summer. Our tour operator did not seem to understand the impacts of time on our schedule. No time for lunch stop... and limited time at each site. During the peak season I wouldn’t recommend this. Better to see them each individually than trying to cram them all in. They are all worth a visit.
After more that three years doing this Castles Tour, in all seasons and all conditions, with all the nice and sometimes more than kind reviews of our guests, we will be the first to admit that a tour did no go well, nobody's perfect and it is always room to improve.
But this time we will not agree with your "poor" rating, even if we respect all our guests reviews.
Indeed, we faced unusually heavy traffic on our way to Peles on a Friday, so out of our control. But despite that, we have managed to enter the Castle in time and allow also 20-25 minutes for sandwiches on the terrace, as we usually do. If not for the traffic, it would have been 30 minutes or more, but we consider seeing the Castle inside is really important.
I would like to mention that in both other stops ( two hours in Bran and more than one hour in Rasnov ) we have allowed free time and you have also bought snaks - kurtos colacs and sandwiches at Peles Castle.
Now, this is the opinion of the Spanish couple who sat close to you, they were kind enough to let me use it here:
"Excelente, el guía puntual, atento, simpático y además habla español a la perfección." I guess they are way too different for the same tour, even without translation.
We strongly suggest next time you do not book a Three Castles Tour for a very easy day. We and TripAdvisor Experiences also offer Two Castles tours and great culinary tours with private transfers.
We would like to remind you the free services you have received out of courtesy before, during and after the tour, services you were supposed to pay for, and that the AC system of the van was working well to keep out the heat of the Transylvanian summer.
To close this, we strongly disagree with your "poor" rating, even if we admit it was a longer than usual day due to out of our control traffic issues.
My husband and I had a wonderful time on this tour. Our guide, Florin, was very interesting and informative. Though we saw three attractions, we never felt rushed and had a good amount of time in each location. I have to say that Bran Castle was my favorite of the three, but Rasnov and Peles were also great. I highly recommend this tour!
This tour delivered in every way that we had hoped, and more. Our guide, Florin, was knowledgeable about so many elements of every destination, and was a joy to tour with. We would enthusiastically recommend this tour to anyone planning on spending time in the area.
This was an outstanding tour. The communication with Florin was excellent before the tour. He informed us by email of additional details regarding our tour and by phone he informed us where we should meet.
The tour itself was excellent. He is a very knowledgable and informative guide, he speaks excellent English and all aspects of the tour were very well organised and fascinating. He also gave us a really interesting insight into life in Romania, past and present.
I would strongly recommend Florin and Flip Flop Tours for this or any other tour from Brasov. I understand that he conducts tailor made tours at clients request. If I had more time I would definitely have arranged a further tour with Florin.
I cannot recommend this tour enough! Florin is incredibly bright, personable, and professional. He is the owner of Flip Flop tours and made a point to make us comfortable and educated. One person cancelled at the last minute, so my fiancé and I had a private tour with this passionate guide. He is easily our best tour of our trip.
Floren took us to visit the castles and it was such a fun day. The beauty and history of these are phenomenal. We even had authentic, delicious, wood-fired pizza on the way back. A must for anyone visiting Brasov.
We had the best day thanks to such a wonderful tour and a super nice, extremely knowledgable tour guide! Much thanks to Flo for his informative and fun tour of beautiful Brasov and surrounding area! There is no better tour guide anywhere! Flo met us on time and we enjoyed getting to know him throughout our day. We had done our research before visiting Romania, but to hear first hand experience about what it was like to grow up in this country, made this tour extra special. At each place we visited, we learned more about the specific place and the whole country. Flo seemed to know people everywhere we went and was greeted warmly. We felt like we were in company with a local celebrity and it was obvious that he has friends all over. We went first to Bran Castle so we could avoid the weekend mid-day crowds. That was a perfect suggestion as it started to get busier as we left. Our second stop was at Rasnov fortress. We walked to the top and had the best view of the surrounding mountains and forests. Lastly, was the impressive Pelles Castle. Having lived in Europe for 8 years now, we have seen a lot of castles. But there was something extra special about this one. Flo was so knowledgable about each place and went above and beyond to teach us about where we were. When the day was finished, Flo recommended a restaurant that he has no affiliation with but is a personal favorite and we had the best meal of our entire trip at that restaurant. Thank you for a fabulous day! Viator is fortunate to have such wonderful tour guides such as Flo! He made our day very special for us!
Our guide Florin was fabulous, just as entertaining as knowledgeable about this tour. Great people's skills, we felt welcomed and well taken care of. We wished we could've spend more time at each site, especially Peles Castle, but there is so much to see and do in one day with this tour, it was certainly very well planned and timed perfectly. Their little bus is very comfortable, and we felt safe at all times. I highly recommend this tour and tour company, Flip-Flop Tour, if they are available, they can arrange other tours for you in and around Brasov. If you get the chance, take advantage of it, we weren't able to but wish we could!
El guía privado fue muy agradable y atento en todo momento con un idioma español perfecto, dejando un amplio margen de movimientos y tiempo suficiente para hacer fotografías y comer.
Las visitas a los castillos de Bran y Peles y la fortaleza de Rasnov resultaron muy interesantes, a parte del interés propio de los castillos, disfrutamos de las expléndidas vistas de las montañas de su entorno.
