Our guide was personable, polite and extremely knowledgeable. We had a lovely tour or Peles Castle and did a drive by of Bran's Castle (really, a drive by is all you'd really want - too touristy). We had a nice lunch at a private home in the mountains, and spent much of the day hiking some spectacular trails through the hills. It was the highlight of our trip.
