Recommendations for driver/guide for Bran Castle day trip?

Family of threee looking for recommendations from anyone who has used/hired a private car/driver/tour guide for a day trip from Bucharest to Brasvo, the Bran Castle, Black Church, etc. Peles Castle will be closed during the time of our arrival and that is why I mentioned the Black Church. Are there alternatives to using the tour companies? We will be arriving the first week in November and have only two and a half days to spend in Bucharest. I've researchd the tour companies and am trying to find a more economical way to visit Brasvo, etc. Thanks in advance.

I used a very nice young man to drive me and my buddy around Romania for several days...Bogdan Balasiou...who was a complete gentleman, well spoken in English, and knowledgeable about Romania. He stayed with us from 8 am in the morning until sometimes into the early evening. I would recommend him very highly. He has a very congenial demeanor as well. I don't think you could do better.

The advantage of using the car and driver is that you can set your own schedule and not be dependent on public transportation plus you will not have a guide to explain things as you go along. It depends on how complete a tour you wish to take.
