Private Tour of Transylvania, Peles Castle, Bran (Dracula’s) Castle, and a traditional Romanian lunch.
Our tour guide, Mihai, was fantastic— knowledgeable, accommodating, flexible, spoke perfect English and a great driver. We had a party of 4 adults. He picked us up on time at our hotel in an impeccably clean van that easily accommodated our group. It was a long day because of the distance we had to drive, but Mihai made the trip as comfortable as possible with frequent stops. Peles Castle was a true work of art inside and out. Mihai thoroughly explained the building construction and architecture, purpose and history of various rooms, as well as the personal details of Romanian royalty. Bran (Dracula’s) Castle was interesting, but primarily a fortress and didn’t compare to Peles Castle. The trip was topped off with a delicious lunch at an “off the beaten path” mountain top village restaurant/inn, Casa Boiereasca, in the small village of Sat Pestera. This was a long day, but Mihai made the trip as comfortable and interesting as absolutely possible.
