Bran, Peles and Rasnov tour review!
Oct 2021
I would like to congratulate Marian and Tiberiu for offering me this excellent experience!
Marian helped me with restaurants tips in Brasov and many other questions I had about the tour and the city. His response time was one of the quickest I have ever seen.
Tiberiu my guide did a very nice tour with me. I was the only one so it made it even more enjoyable. I had enough time to see all the 4 attractions. He was very professional and patient.
I wish Marian and his team happy and healthy days ahead.
I can highly recommend this company to any sort of traveller coming to Brasov.
Good luck and best wishes. S.

disappointing
The guide talking too fast and indistinct, so even though he had a lot of knowledge - we did not get anything with us. The trip was unstructured and disappointing. We saw Bran Castle, but otherwise the fortress was closed - and it is for a few more years. No need to spend time on this trip while in Brasov.

Thank you for sharing with us your thoughts about our Bran Castle and Rasnov Fortress Tour from Brasov with Optional Peles Castle Visit. You were 5 people taking this tour. The feedback we get from the other 3 people: "The tour was beautifull and Bogdan was a very nice person and an excellente guide…all 5 stars for me!" and "Everything was great. Thank you." More than this, Bogdan, the guide, went the extra mile and drove you all to Poiana Brasov resort (12 km) and at a very nice bellevue point for taking photos of Brasov old city center. So, please allow us to be a little bit sad about your review.

Great Experience Exploring Transylvania
Sep 2021
Had such a great day exploring Peles Castle, Bran Castle, and Rasnov Fortress with Charlie! He was so knowledgeable about the history of each place and of Transylvania and Brasov in general. He knew all the best photo spots and let us make stops in between if we saw something interesting. I was traveling solo and it was great to have a guide and a few other travelers to spend the day with, I don't think I would have had as good of an experience if I tried to do this on my own. Highly recommend.

Excellent tour, wonderful day! Tiberiu is a passionate guide, a real well of knowledge :), and I learned so much during this trip. He's also very attentive to the well-being of his guests. The day after, I also visited with him Harman and Prejmer, two fortified churches. A half-day tour that I also strongly recommend!

Amazing Experience
Jul 2021
Our guide Tiberiu was amazing. Hands down, I would come back to Brasov just to do another tour with him. He was very knowledgable about the sites we went to and about Romania history. I learned a lot during the day that we spent with him. I will certainly recommend this tour to anyone that goes to Brasov.

This was a lovely tour! Our guide, Tiberiu, was very knowledgeable about the history of each site and was very thorough in his explanations. We loved this tour and it was a great way to see both Bran Castle and Rasnov Fortress.

Very nice experience
Jul 2021 • Couples
Our trip was very pleasant, we had priority at the entrances of Peles and Bran Castle. Our guide Karoly was really kind and competent and a stunning English speaker. He took his time to explain in detail aspects of the not so well known (for us, Italians) history of modern Romania. I absolutely recommend a trip with Active Travel!

Tour Castello di Bran e fortezza di Rasnov
Jun 2021 • Friends
Great historical-cultural experience. For us, price/quality, at the top!

The beautiful and interesting locations but the flagship was the guide. 5 hours of tales about Romani’s history, legends and local gems.

He also accompanied us to two different places where we found some truly fascinating views.

His name is Balazs Karoly Andras!

Thank u for everything
