We booked this trip through our hotel for approximately 85 euros. We met our guide Adrian at the Hilton in the old town and from the start he was very friendly and knowledgeable. There was 5 of us on the trip and he took the time to answer all our questions and give us plenty of free time when we needed it for photos and the toilet etc. I recommend having breakfast before you go/taking it with you and some water however there are plenty of opportunities for food and drinks. Adrian knows the best places for street food at Dracula’s castle and it was very well priced and so delicious. The trip is approximately 12 hours door to door but very worth it. So glad we saw these beautiful castles and the fabulous old town. 5* service as you get a bottle of water and magnets as a souvenir from the tour with this company. Thank you Adrian.

This was one of best tours we have done, Soreen our guide was brilliant, very informative we learned such a lot about Romania. Sorren was very polite and funny with his stories, he looked after us and made sure we had a day that we won't forget. Castles were amazing and the snow made it magical. Went to a very good restaurant for lunch food was delicious. Would highly recommend this tour.

Just completed the full day tour to Dracula’s castle, Pelisour Castle and one other stop (can’t recall the name at the moment) with Nico booked through Adriana. This tour group exceeded my expectations! I screwed up and booked the wrong day for the tour and with less than 24hours notice Adriana fixed it for me! The vehicle was lovely and in good repair. Nico was an absolute gentleman and very knowledgeable. He shared the history of the country and his experiences living through communism and the revolution. We set the pace and the conversation, and really enjoyed the day!

Theo was our guide and was brilliant, so interesting and informative but knew when to be quiet (a skill many guides don't have!). we started at 0715 to minimise the traffic and went to Peles Castle which was fabulous, from there we moved to Bran castle, the castle is less wow than Peles but well worth a visit and we enjoyed the market stalls at the base. From there we drove to Brasov where we had a great lunch and thoroughly enjoyed wondering around the city. I was soooo impressed with the architecture and people.

We booked a daytrip to peles castle, Brans castle and Brasov. Excellent service with pick up/drop of at the hotel. Nicu our guide told us so much about the history of the region and our destinations. He also made sure we found places to eat along the way. The only trouble we had was some bad luck with traffic. Thanks for a great day.

Dear Customer, Thank you for making time to give us feedback. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the trip, as well as Nicu's involvement. Unfortunately, August is one of the most crowded months of the year with many tourists visiting the country, so the traffic can sometimes be inconvenient. Still, we hope that your trip was enjoyable. We wish you many more exciting journies! Kind regards,
