We had the tour of Bran & Peles Castle as well as Rasnov Fortress, plus stopping in for lunch at a restaurant local to Bran Castle.

The tour was great, our guide Karoly (Charlie) had expert knowledge on any question we had, not limited just to the history of the castles either! It was a really interesting day, we learned so much about Romanian history and culture. Each castle was fascinating in its own way, with a different story behind each, paired with the amazing scenery that each had to offer, that alone was money well spent.

Our guide, Karoly, was a really lovely guy, good fun and made us laugh a lot. He also had some great recommendations about places to visit in Brasov as well, which were much appreciated. He has also arranged for us to go to a lovely restaurant close to Bran castle, where we had some delicious Romanian food. We had a really great time with him and were sad to see the day end, I think we were out for the best part of 9/10 hours.

We'd definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about the area and it's history. We'd never done anything like this before but will definitely be doing it again, if we're in Brașov again well absolutely be using Karoly again!

Also he has 10/10 photography skills (legend has it they were learnt from TikTok)

Tiberiur Simon gave an excellent tour! He was very knowledgeable on not just the casltles but the city and local area history. He was very accommodating with providing extra rain jackets during an unexpected rain. He went out of his way to make the tour feel special for me and my kids and spent some time showing us around the local market which he did not have to do. I highly recommend him as a tour guide!

Our tour guide Charlie was absolutely perfect. Funny, charming, knowledgeable and respectful, he took us through each of the three castles with a similar level of energy and enthusiasm. We had a wonderful time, he made stops along the way for photo opportunities and introduced us to local cuisine. If there were any higher ratings, we would give that!

My wife and I had a great time enjoying this castle tour with Tiberiu Simon or popularly known as TB. TB is a very experienced guide, knows the history of Romania, particularly Transylvania, by heart and a smart driver too. The stories shared by TB were fantastic and took us into the past and imagine things are happening around us. We were impressed by the details he shared with us. A very fun guy to have around if you want to explore the places. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who visits Brasov or Romania in general. Thank you TB for making our travel experience memorable.

Arrived in Brasov and only had one day here. Called up the office last minute and they managed to get a guide set up to pick us up in 20 minutes (impressive). Even more impressive, it was a really cool guy calling himself 'Dan the Romanian Man'. When Dan wasn't showing us the incredible sights of Bran and Peles Castles, he was singing along in his car to his favourite songs! We had a full day of this and loved every minute. Book your tour with Active Travel, you will have a great time in this quirky corner of Europe!

Tiberiu Simon our tour guide was fantastic. He gave us in depth information while driving around as well as both sites we visited. Provided comfort and laughter the whole time. Also took us to a great restaurant afterwards as an added treat. I highly recommend booking with him!!!

Had such a great time with Karoly. We can't wait to come back and do some more tours with him. Felt so relaxing and he catered the tour to what we were interested in and our needs. Highly recommend to English tourists like us who have very little knowledge on Transylvanian history.
We were interested in other places, Karoly offered to take us; unfortunately due to our timing, we couldn't go. But it was nice that he was so accommodating. Definitely coming back as soon as we can.

Was amazing! I booked a tour alone. Was just me and the guide and he was amazing. As a alone traveller sometimes people don’t treat me nicely since I’m alone. But this company was super nice and open for me. My guide, Tibi, was super friendly and teach a lot of stuff about Romanian. Plus the place is beautiful! I highly recommend this company and also recommend that you a stay more days in Brasov and maybe do another tours. (I didn’t but I wish I could do that). Bran castle is beautiful. Totally worth! Thank you guys for the lovely day

Absolutely brilliant day out, one of the best days of my whole trip. I had lots of fun with my tour guide Charlie, I was very comfortable with him and we had lots of laughs. When he saw I had a professional camera and that I'd liked taking scenic pictures, he went out of his way to show me the best places to get those, that as a tourist I wouldn't have known where to find on my own. Would definitely book with them again.
