Brilliant tour!! Our driver Andreas was great, full of information about Romania and the places we visited, we were taken to the front of the queues at both Peles and Bran's castle and had tour guides at both sites who were both great. We were also taken to a lovely Romanian restaurant and given free time in Brasov, the tour was perfect and fitted a great deal into one day, would not hesitate to recommend!
We had a full day visiting the 2 castles and the black church in Transylvania. The tour guide Serban Rigawas was knowledgeable, informative and very keen on his job. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to visit Burcharest and find out the full history of this unexplored wonder.
We had a great time, our guide, Valentina was very good and caring. Places we went to were interesting, we had plenty of time to eat and take photos. Our small group was of 12 people, though it's not clear in advance how small are the small group. Overall we had a fun trip.
We had a great day exploring castles in Romania! During our trip to the Bran Castle we were even shown some secret rooms. I'd definitely recommend this tour for anyone short on time and wanting to see a lot!
Excellent guide! Valentina kept providing useful information and entertaining the group
Excellent way to see three attractions in one day. Our guide Andrea and driver Gabi were very co operative. The area is beautiful and Peles Castle is very grand. We really enjoyed our trip. Just wish we had more time to explore Sinaia area which appeared lovely.
when in romania this tour is Highly Recommended
The tour was just the right amount for a day. I was very tired from travel, but Valentina was a great tour guide and kept us all very interested in what was all around us. She had an excellent understanding of the culture and history. It was all so fascinating and she really made a connection with us. I loved the tour and the amount that I learned about Romania.

This tour was spectacular! The castles are absolutely worth going to see as is the opportunity for relatively comfortable and care-free travel through Transylvania and the Carpathian Mountains. Peles Castle a Germanic castle built for King Carol I is as impressive as any I've seen in Germany or Austria. The interior is well preserved and restored and the tour guide very informative. Bran Castle is less impressive, but perhaps more interesting historically as it is on the site of a much older fortress. It is also tangentially related to Bram Stoker's version of the Dracula myths, so some people might find it interesting. There certainly isn't a larger collection of Dracula-themed souvenirs than in the village surrounding it! It requires climbing several flights of stairs, but is absolutely worth seeing top to bottom.
The rest of the trip was, again, relatively comfortable. The Coach was air conditioned and the group numbering 27 stayed together pretty well. Our couple hours in Brasov were nice, including a great meal at a restaurant serving somewhat traditional Transylvanian food.
The highlight for me, for a few reasons, was our tour guide: Valentin. First, he did an amazing job keeping the group together and on time. Second, he was interesting and, quite often, funny. He had amusing and insightful commentary on the way and between stops. He was knowledgeable when we had questions and he was incredibly helpful in advising travel around Bucharest and the rest of Romania. Third, he obviously cares about customer service something we miss sometimes living in Austria. I left my mobile phone on the bus after the day was finished at 8:30pm and made it all the way back to our hotel 20 minutes away. We called him and he had not only already found the phone, but he hand-delivered to me at my hotel within a half hour. He didn't ask for a thing. He was truly amazing.
This trip is highly recommended for the sites, the comfort, and especially Valentin.
Well organised. The guide Daniel was great. Peles Castle in particular was excellent.
