The day was excellent from start to end. The bus arrived on time and both our guide and driver did welcome us. Our guide was excellent, providing information about Romania, its history as well as its current state. Was funny and happy to answer any questions we had. Not only did he suggest what we could do in our free time, but also what to avoid, which we found very useful.
Despite the relatively bad weather was snowing all day long, the driver was very careful and we felt safe all the way to the castles and back. Peles castle and the village around it are very nice. Can't say the same for Bran castle though..a bit of a disappointment although our guide had prepared us but it does worth the visit, as you cannot visit Romania without visiting Bran castle. Brasov was very beautiful and has a traditional city centre. We would have liked to spend a bit more time there but the weather did not allow us to stay any longer!
It was an excellent tour and a great way to see some of the countryside and try some local foods.
Safe and knowledgeable driver/tour guide. Excellent tour! Long trip but plenty of stops for photos and bathroom breaks. Oversize van is very comfortable and it has WIFI all the way. Highly recommended.
If you fund yourself in Bucharest, take this trip. Excellent from start to finish. We all loved it. Keith from Cyprus
A fantastic tour that is not to be missed. The tour guide was accommodating and informative. We had plenty of time to look around and take photos!!
This tour was great, fun, relaxing, fascinating. Even though the rained, it was not pouring too hard during the times we were outside exploring. I learned a lot about Vlad the Impaler. Very interesting town of Brasov and beautiful castles! Tour guide, Marie, and driver were very welcoming and kind.
We had a great day on this excursion.. Our guide Mary was very knowledgeable and interesting.. The snow fell and it made the trip more beautiful. We got some lovely photos..The scenery on the way was fabulous. It was very safe at all times and we were picked up and dropped at our hotel.. Long drive home
Our tour guide was Roxanne and she was excellent. The trip was a very long one but most enjoyable. Would have been nice to had a little more time in Brasov but difficult to fit in everything in the day. Just one issue to report - the coach had a toilet but I was told it was broken. As we travelled several hours with limited stops, the comfort of being on a coach with a toilet would have been good. This view was also shared by several other travelers.
Everything was great,especially the tour guide , apart from the restaurant he recommended at Bran.
Excellent tour all around and I have been to many different countries. Use Viator whenever available as they never let me down. Tour Guide was very good and knowledgeable. Time was managed well. Sites are must see when in Romania. Highly recommended tour.
Excellent tour through wonderful countryside of Transylvania. I was a little disappointed with the castle as it was a little too pristine for my liking and I suppose my preconceived perception was that it would have been more of a rough and ready castle than somewhat the inside of a stately home. It was still an awesome experience though, to visit the home of the legendary Dracula nonetheless and the views out and back from Bucharest were breath taking. A must see castle when in Bucharest or surrounding area.
Wow...what an awesome experience! Our guide made the whole experience engaging and easy - would do it again!
This a an excellent snap shot tour of Peles and Bran castles and the Brasov. Emilia is knowledgeable of the places and I learned a lot even if I did some readings about the areas and people, i.e., Vlad the Impaler and the legends of Dracula, history of Brasov, etc., prior to joining the tour. Emilia is also responsive to the group and she did a great job of being a lead and facilitator like showing where is the best spot to take pictures, a good or alternate place to buy memorabilia, etc. Considering the distance of the places from Bucharest, it could have been bettter if we convened earlier like 7AM so that in case there is late comer, we can still leave at 7:30AM and be at the place earlier. Overall, this is a great tour that I would recommend to anyone visiting the country. I believe these places are part of the heart and soul of Romania and this tour is an excellent way to get acquainted with those places. Keep up th great job Emilia and Mr. Tripp. A. Ellis C.
Great day trip from Bucharest. Definitely, a must if you want to get out of the city. The tour guide Emilia was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Our tour guide was awesome! He was very knowledgeable, entertaining, ensured his group was organized and together, and even gave us recommendations on the local cuisine! Had an awesome time and made my trip to Bucharest so worth it despite the rainy, cold weather.

Great day tour of two historic castles and Brasov! Tour guide Roxanne has great knowledge and interesting stories to tell throughout the day and knows what information is useful to us! Recommend this day trip from Bucharest for a snap shot of beautiful Romania.

Amazing tour. The guide Emilia confidently took us through the places and the castles are stunning, especially Peles. I liked how the tour company confirmed pick up time by email well in advance. only downside is the castles are extremely busy but that is just the way it is, not the tour company's fault.
