Short, expensive and lacking substance
I booked this trip for me and my 2 grown up children. Three in total cost just under £400 ! I expected a once in a life time amazing trip.
The guide- Iouna (sorry about spelling) was very lovely. We were picked up at 9am and driven around for 90 minutes to get to the Libearty Bear Sanctuary. We were taken on the tour by the Bear Sanctuary staff with about 25/30 other people. This was 1 hour long. Beautiful and sad at same time.
From there we were driven to Bran Castle, by now it was 12.30 so we did our tour in the castle asked about food and said yes you can get something if you like. So we did. Just street food snack.
We were then driven up to Poiana Brasov to look at mountains resort from the land rover. Stopped at a water spring. Then driven back to Brasov for 3.15pm. It was a rainy day but the 4x4 experience was up one slope and down again. Here we got out took a photo.

All in all it was a very expensive tour with out a lot of information. It was 6 hours long and didn't reach our expectations. No quaint lunch in a village? For £130+ per person we had 2 entrance fees to the Bear Sanctuary and Bran Castle- the fees are actually quite cheap. So in hindsight i'd recommend an uber for the day!

Very disappointed and feel very ripped off! There was no history or real information about the villages we drove through. Google map was being used so i dont think it was a planned and known route or trip with real planning.

I was meant to be contacted by Andra (the tour owner) but have not- i wanted to give this feedback direct with an opportunity for her to respond privately. But as no contact I dont want anyone else to feel how we did.

Thank you for your review Liz, I am sorry to hear that you were unhappy about the tour. It is the first time in many years that someone decided to give us negative feedback about this or other tours. We engage in daily tours throughout the summer as well as in winter and there has never been a customer concern that we did not solve as soon as it was brought to our attention. To your specific tour, I’ve sent you an email asking how things were going on 3 April at 12:48 PM. I’ve also attached photos from the tour. So you can imagine my surprise when you said you got no answer. Viator provides all the details and phone numbers on his voucher which was sent to you. Moreover I personally wrote you the day before and asked if i can be of any other help to you while you stay in Romania. I find it discerning that you did not mention these details in the review. The guide told you had a wonderful time and you have not shown your dissatisfaction during the tour. As for the activities included in the tour: You did all the activities mentioned on our website, except one part (about 30-45 minutes) which were omitted because the night before it rained very hard and part of the road was flooded and thus inaccessible Our day tours are not 12 hours long. All the tours are 6-8 hours long. Unfortunately, a lot of this time is spent on the road which is out of our hands. Again, we are sorry for your less then great experience. I’m sure we can all learn from our past mistakes so I want to extend an offer next time you are in Romania. A 4x4 free of charge 1/2-day (3-4 hours) trip. Kind regards, Andra
