The Gothic landmarks of Transylvania are dark, dramatic, and dispersed throughout the region’s mountainous landscapes. Travel with ease between three Transylvania highlights, including Peles Castle and Bran Castle (Dracula’s Castle), on this private full-day tour from Bucharest. Delve into legends of Dracula and Vlad the Impaler, and visit Brasov’s Black Church, an imposing 13th-century church. On this private tour, hotel pickup and drop-off in Brasov are included.
On the morning of your tour, board a private vehicle at your Bucharest hotel and discuss the day’s itinerary with your personal guide. During the 2.5-hour journey towards Transylvania, you’ll pass through the unspoiled landscapes of the Prahova Valley to Sinaia, home to Peles Castle.
On arrival at the Neo-Renaissance wonder, built in the 19th-century for the Romanian royal family, explore some of the castle’s 160 rooms, all of which are adorned with luxurious upholstery and antique furniture. Admire an array of styles, including Gothic, Baroque, and French Rococo, before you proceed to Bran’s Castle.
Arguably the crowning architectural feature of Transylvania, Bran’s Castle boasts rusted-red turrets and imposing stonewalls. As you explore, hear of how Vlad the Impaler was incarcerated in the dungeons and learn of the castle’s associations with Bram Stoker’s legendary monster, Dracula.
Then, continue to Brasov to visit the Black Church, a medieval landmark constructed in the 13th century. Hear of its resilient defiance of attacks before you return to your private vehicle and relax during the journey back to your Brasov hotel.
Florin from Rolandia Tours was fantastic! He promptly picked my daughter and I up from our hotel at 8am. He sent me a confirmation email before the trip to confirm details. We took our tour on New Year's Eve, so I was surprised that the tour was offered despite the holiday. Florin was a wealth of knowledge. He truly knows his material. He allowed us to make changes spontaneously, which we appreciated. It was really fun taking the tour with him. Not only was he an excellent guide, he was a nice person to spend the day with.
Ask for Florin, you will not be disappointed!
I didn't realise when I booked the tour it was truly a private tour. Stefan took the two of us in his car and was a wonderful tour guide. He proactively rearranged the sequence of sites so we would be able to see all the sights listed on the itinerary. He shared useful information about the locations and about Romania and Bucharest. If I could give more than 5 stars I would due to Stefan's personalised tour. If you get the chance request him for your private day trip, you will not be disappointed.
Some confusion about pick up at hotel....our guide Val , was fantastic very informative, funny and took our safety and comfort as his 1 priority. Would highly recommend
