          NICE TOUR
          Nice tour, well organized. Pelisor castle was great to visit, interesting and with many details if you like to make photos. We cannot say the same for Bran castle, which is super fake. On the other hand the tour guide recommended delicious meals to eat so we enjoyed also this part. The last part was Brașov, also very nice city with beautiful architecture. The only recommendation is to be more precise or to explain that the tour could easily last longer than what's written in the description (we came back around 21:30, no accident, only traffic).

          Great day trip from Bucharest
          Wonderful day crossing the Danube into Bulgaria. Veliko Tarnovo⁩⁦ was well worth a visit, churches scenery and learning history and tidbits from Eugen made the day very memorable. Fun group random companions in the van made for lots of laughs as well.

          Amazing day trip!
          Very informative and organised day trip. Tudor was a great tour guide, and the castles were both extraordinary with lots to do and see. Would 100% recommend!

          Best tour to know about Braşov and Sinaia
          Our guide Tudor was very helpful and explained the history of Romania to us in a very clear way. All the places we visited were amazing and made me love this country more. Thanks also to the bus driver for making our trip so safe.

          Great day touring and learning about Dracula
          A 7.15am start for a full day touring - our guides name was Vlad - he was quite a character and did a good job of introducing us to Transyvania. First up we had a tour of Peles Castle. A stunning neo-renaissance palace in the royal domain of Sinaia. Bran castle sitting high atop a 61 metre cliff in the middle of Transylvania. We had a brief walking tour of Brasov, which we ditched partway through to cover a bit more ground. Fabulous little town.

          fascinating exploration
          Dracula's Castle Full-Day Tour from Bucharest was an absolute thrill. The day-long journey provided a fascinating exploration into Romania's rich history and the legendary tale of Count Dracula. The tour commenced with a comfortable ride from Bucharest, allowing for scenic views of the Romanian countryside.

          Between good and average
          A trip to take 12 hours saw us back at the hotel after 18 hours. Delays through traffic jams, queuing times at the three castles en route and a police control at 22:30 at night saw to that. Bram castle was great and fun to look at, peles castles was ok, but way too busy to really enjoy. Oute tour guide, while willing, still had a lot to learn. Our driver was great!

          I would give them -5 if possible
          Rude and unprofessional. Arrived late to the meeting point and even though we paid for small tour of 8 people, they put us on the full bus and said they can't do anything. Absolutely terrible experience, please never book anything with this company.

          Wonderful day trip
          fantastic day trip with wondeful POI. We had enough time to explore on our own after the tours. Our tour guide Vlad was very helpful and good with clear instructions before and during the trip

          Tour company and guide good. Tour wasn’t great, wasn’t terrible.
          Good communication by the company before the tour and during the tour with Vlad our tour guide. A few issues with the tour… 1)I was under the impression that they pick you up at your hotel, but really they have you meet at a meeting point nearby, so be prepared to need a little extra time. 2)The bus seats are tight and fairly uncomfortable. This matters because you’re driving for a large portion of the day. Peles castle had extremely long lines to get in and it was tight and uncomfortable in line. Dracula’s castle is totally disappointing and honestly not even worth the trip. Brasov turned out to be the best part of the whole day. Cute little old town.

          Very quick tour (does not pick up from hotel)
          Loved seeing all the places but the whole experience was a bit rushed. We only got two hours to walk around, eat lunch, and see all the sights in the town. The Dracula castle was only a 45 minute stop. If you want it to be a fast tour this works, but if you want to look around and see things it’s not really toke for that. Also it is advertised as pick up from hotel but it does not do that. It gives you a meeting point.

          Be ready with passports for the tour and be 30 minutes early
          It was a well-organised good tour inside the house. Only able to view 3/4 rooms out of 4,000 rooms. Would be better if the organisers at the gate were to connect with us the day before, to advise that we needed passports to get in plus be there 30 minutes before the tour. Some visitors had to return another day as they couldn't get their passports and return on time for the tour.

          Disappointing
          Castle is stunning to look at. We got there early but the queues that were waiting to go in as we were coming out were huge. I felt so sorry for families with little children. Bear in mind very narrow and long staircases if you have and walking difficulties. Inside was disappointing and also don’t expect to hear much about Dracula.
