This tour was absolutely fantastic! Lucien and Diana were wonderful tour guides and I left the tour feeling that I truly learned so much and was able to enjoy the sites thoroughly. I would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone interested in learning about the histories of Romania. Peles Castle is like a fairy tale castle, Rasnov Fortress has an absolutely beautiful view and Bran Castle was everything I had hoped it to be. They took us to a small restaurant across from Bran Castle to eat lunch and gave suggestions on traditional meals for Romania. At no point did I feel rushed or that I wouldn't get time to fully enjoy a site. When we needed to stop for anything they were very accommodating and at the end of the tour I felt I had two friends in Romania if I came back again. Definitely recommended!

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.
