This was a wonderful trip! Completely private tour you and whoever else you book for with a lovely driver/guide who knows the answer to any and every question you could ask. I would recommend it to everyone

Our most excellent guide tailored the day to our interests-made an additional stop based on a comment my husband made-and gave us a real feel for life of a Romanian. He cleverly avoided traffic and we benefited with a lovely view of the countryside. The itinerary was everything promised and more. I highly recommend the personal touch of the private tour.

Garfield was an awesome guide. Very knowledgeable and willing to share with the group. This was a great way to see these sights and get historical information not just the folklore version.

I think Brasov deserves more time and Bran maybe a little less. We had a private tour so we spent a good amount of time at the Brasov resort for lunch and learned more from our tour guide.The castle in Sinaa is really beautiful.

We had a marvelous trip. Christian was great driver and wonderful tour guide. He was right on time to meet us at our hotel and off we went to explore Transylvania and the Carpathian mountains. He was knowledgeable and told us about the history of the area. Also when he knew that Bran Castle would be crowded, we went to Brascov first after the Pele Castle and then after a fun lunch in the square, we traveled on to Bran Castle. He was patient if we were late and left the timing to us. All in all it was a marvelous day, beautiful weather, and all around a wonderful trip. I would definitely use a private driver again especially for such a long day.

Cristian was a great driver and tour guide. This was a private tour and Peles castle,Bran castle and Brasov were all fantastic places to visit, not only for the history but the culture. Cristian knew all the people at each destination and took us to a great place for lunch. He was punctual, friendly and had a very good command of English unlike our Romanian!. Highly recommended.
