This tour was an amazing experience as the tour guide was highly knowledgable and ensured that my experience was first class all the way. I learned so much about this amazing county's history, culture, traditions and sites. Truly the best day of my vacation and I highly recommend to anyone. I attended in December and it was like a winter wonderland when it snowed on Dracula's Castle.....

The Romanian countryside is beautiful - and definitely worth the trip - and the context from the history of the country that was provided throughout our journey. Alex was a great tour guide! He speaks English very well and provided us with the perfect balance of toured places and time on our own to wander. Thanks for the great trip!

This tour was a very worth while experience. Our guide Gabriel was very knowledgeable about all of the locations we visited as well as providing us with intersting facts about Romanian history along the way. While the tour had some set timings it was also felxable enough to allow us to explore.

Well, how could I visit Romania without seeing Dracula's Castle? So, my wife and I did. I couldn't recommend this tour enough. My wife was born and adopted from Romania at an early age. I saw this as a chance to let her see more of the Country and it let me see the famous Castle. Our tour guy was Alex Stan. Let me first start off with him. He arrived at our hotel on time yes, they will pick you up directly from your hotel with his car. He was very friendly! He made the tour less of a tour and more of a history lesson, which i loved. He was extremely smart and and had a lot of knowledge of every place we went. He adjusted the order of the tour in order for us to see as much as we could. We first went to Dracula's castle and he gave us the entire history of both the fiction and the true history. He gave us as much time as we needed. We then went to Brasov which is where he grew up. So, he knew a lot about the area. He walked us around showing us the history as well as the shops. He took us to a great place to eat lunch. Please pay for his meal! He works hard. Brasov was a great place and I wish I could have spent more time there. Again, the amount of history he was able to give us was way beyond what I expected. From there we went to Peles Castle. Again, it was beautiful. The wood working in the Castle was beyond what I have ever seen!

The reason I recommend this tour so much is 1 Because of Alex. If you can get him as your guide, do so! 2 Alex made the tour about us. We could spend as much or as little time in a place as we wanted. There was not stress at all. It is just your group and the guide. 3 Romania is beautiful with a ton of history you may not know. This is a great way to experience it!

Alex, thank you! Unzip Romaina... you have a great guy here with a great tour!

Can't recommend this enough. Our guide Claudia was an absolute delight and the day passed seemlessly. Brasov was an unexpected highlight and the journey to and from Bran was as much part of the tour as the destinations themselves. Enjoy the local cuisine and meeting the friendly people.
Just Do It....
