          Fantastic trip and guide (Cristian) highly recommend
          Firstly, a big thank you to Cristian who looked after us very well. He commenced commentary from the get go, pointing out different buildings and lots of story telling on the way. He gave us plenty of time to explore Bran castle, called ahead to find out how busy places were so he could do the sights in reverse. Well done, we skipped the crowds. Next stop Brasov for lunch, again plenty of time then on to Peles castle. We’re weren’t sure about visiting the castle, but we trusted his judgement and so glad we did. All stops 100% worth it, I will be recommending to my friends.

          Castles in Transylvania and Brasov
          Didn’t get off to a good start, picked up a message the evening before we were due ti leave, that the trip would start at 10.30 (rather than 7.30 am) due to a road closure. Who knows if this was true? Bearing in mind this was supposed to be a 12 hour tour, travelling 3 1/2 hours to the first destination, my husband and I were worried that the 3 visits on the itinerary would be rushed, considering sunset around 6.30 pm. Our guide messaged to say that it wouldn’t affect our itinerary. We ended up doing the tour ‘back to front’, which wasn’t a problem, it’s just he didn’t mention this until we had nearly arrived at the first destination. We did feel a bit rushed (although he kept saying we could take all the time we needed), but we knew we needed to get around quickly to fit in the other two visits whilst it was light. There were big road queues when we left Peles castle, which obviously was not our guides fault, but made us later to Bran castle. In Peles, we only had a ticket for the ground floor, we hadn’t been offered the opportunity to visit the other 2 floors, but there wouldn’t have been time anyway. We again felt the need to rush our tour because of the time/light. Both castles were amazing, but we had expected a tour guide as we had paid for a private tour, not just a driver, but we were left largely to our own devices to self guide ourselves inside the castle. Our next stop was Brasov, again beautiful, but arrived very late in the afternoon. Our driver was just going to drop us off and arrange to meet us later, when I reminded him that our itinerary included a walking tour. He willingly spent 20 mins or so with us and had some great knowledge on the town to share and then arranged to meet us 30 mins later. Our drive back to Bucharest was something of a white knuckle ride to say the least, it was beyond scary. Too fast on non highway roads in residential areas, whilst our drives was talking on his mobile phone frequently, one call lasted about 20 mins. Not sure what the laws are in Romania about using mobiles whilst driving (that aren’t hands free), but it’s not safe and a distraction. At one point in Brasov, the driver was taking a photo on his mobile, whilst driving, when my husband shouted look out… which stopped us rear ending the car in front. Ironically he told us he was driving his kids to the coast the next day, which he could reach in a couple of hours, but would drive more slowly than he usually does as he would have his kids in the car. He was a nice guy, but more a driver (fast) than a tour guide. When you’re spending this kind of money on a private tour, with entrance fees on top, you would expect more. We had a small group (7) tour the next day, the Transfagarasan road to see wild bears, the guide was knowledgable, safe driver, kept us informed of everything, quite a contrast

          Castled out, but good to see more of the country.
          Although we found Bran Castle a relative disappointment, we did enjoy getting out of Bucharest and seeing some countryside. Pele Castle was much more interesting than Bran Castle. Our driver, Claudio, was accommodating and took us on an alternate route back, visiting the site of the Ceaucescu’s execution. We appreciated the alternate site visit. Claudio is a skilled driver, if a bit fast and fearless. Our taxi ride from the airport was similar, so perhaps that’s driving in Romania.

          Wonderful tour!
          Christian was a great driver! We had a wonderful time on this tour. If you are in Bucharest and looking for an excursion out of the city, we definitely recommend this one!

          Lovely city
          Lovely city and walk at the ocean. It was crowded this month and very hot. The ocean is very beautiful and warm enough to dip your toes.

          Very disappointing and terrifying day!
          Very disappointing day! Claudio was not a guide. He was a driver. He told me virtually nothing at the three places we visited. He dropped me off. I was on my own. His driving was terrifying. At one point going over 150km/96 mph on single lane roads weaving in and out of traffic. He spent much of the drive talking on the phone on social calls. When he did talk to me it was to brag about what a great driver he is and who he has driven. The car was not clean. I was the only person on the trip. Maybe if there had been others he might have been better and more engaged. He says he has been doing this for 23 years. He was truly unengaged

          A delightful private excursion by car!
          My husband met our driver, Christian, at exactly the time arranged. The excursion was a delight and Christian made it even better. He gave us plenty of historical information during our trip about everything (I guess his MA in History was really worth it) and he was very helpful, friendly and understanding. What is more, he was also very discreet and it was like he knew when we were tired and when we could have a discussion. The two castles were great but the city of Brasov stole the show for my husband and I. The little square was colorful and the food, despite being in a tourist area, was delicious. I would certainly recommend Christian and his team for this day outside Bucharest and into Transylvania. After all, trips are there to create memories, and Petros and I certainly created some memorable ones. And we certainly owe a part of these new memories to Christian. Thank you!

          Beautiful Romanian Odyssey
          Our UnzipRomania Customised Tour was truly excellent - every part of our trip was carefully planned and well organised. Our guide Chris was superb - highly personable, considerate and knowledgeable. Romania is a beautiful country with many well-preserved historical sites. Thankyou so much.

          Amazing experience
          The visit to Peles Castle was the highlight of our tour but I also enjoyed our stay in Brasov city. The Hotel Bella Muzica was fantastic and situated at a great location, but has no lift, and it maybe uncomfortable to carry big luggage upstairs. Cristian, our guide is an amazing person, very knowledgeable guide, excellent and responsible driver. We also enjoyed eating at his suggested eateries. He's sure is an asset to the company he works for.

          Awesome experience and trip with Unzip Romania and Claudio.
          We took this private day trip in August from Bucharest. We basically booked it the day before and they still made it seamless. Our guide Claudio was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were able to customize the whole trip and moved at our own pace. We are so glad that we did not take the group tours that are rushed. It was an awesome trip and shoutout to Unzip Romania and Claudio.

          5-star Experience!
          Cristian is a true delight and will give you insightful background on all the castles and historical context for what you are seeing. In addition, the lunch recommendation was superb, and the driving very safe and professional. Highly recommend this experience!

          A beautiful long day
          This is a must-do day-visit if you are in Bucharest. Our tour guide/driver Diana picked us up from the hotel on-time and the drive to the attractions is loong. But with her chatting with us answering all the silly questions and the nice car/ride, plus the change of scenery, it's enjoyable. The castles are for sure beautiful in every angle, with a private guide we get to park as close as possible and visited ahead of the huge tour groups, definitely worth the premium of a private tour. Bransov is beautiful as well - the old town walk around and a nice little hike to the watch towers show you the best view of the city and with the private tours you can visit in your own pace and have enough time to do some shopping/discoveries before hop onto the next attractions. And who can say no to beautiful local food?? We visited on a Sunday, the traffic is a bit bad - did take the full ~12 hours for the tour (wish the highway could be finished sooner!!). It's a long day but very enjoyable with our tour guide Diana and the tour arrangement itself. Highly recommend for visitors.
