Serban Riga was a fabulous guide, brought great energy and covered amazing ground. As we drove out of Bucharest, he gave us a lot of tips and history. He planned our trip as we went, in order to take into account traffic, timings we wanted to spend in different locations and using his knowledge of how busy places were at the time of year. It was very beneficial to have a guide who knows the processes for each location as well as staff members there, in order to make the most of the short time I had available. Serban was both very approachable and professional. I was glad he was able to gather the group on time so as to keep the tour moving! but he was also flexible to arrive late back at the end of the day, if there was traffic etc, so that we didn't miss out on anything. Thanks so much! Hope to do a different tour with you next time I'm in town!!

We had originally ordered the 5-day trip "Maramures, Bucovina & Danube Delta". Due to changes in flight times, we had to rebook the trip to a personal 4-day trip. We were in Sinaia, Bran, Brașov, Tulcea and Constanța. Despite the problem with the airline, it was no problem for Travelmaker to make changes and adapt the trip to the new conditions. Which we are very happy about. Travelmaker was very accommodating.

We had a guide named Daniel during the trip, and Daniel was both nice and very knowledgeable. Which will make the whole trip to a magnificent trip.

If you like nature, this was the perfect trip, even if we probably missed out on other experiences that the original 5-day trip would provide.

I can highly recommend this trip and Travelmaker.

We’ve been on many day tours in countries all around the world - this one with TravelMakers was exceptional. Our tour included a couple of Italians, an irishman and an absolutely brilliant tour guide named Boogie. Everyone was there to have fun and the laughs were plenty. Boogie also threw in a couple of bonus stops and filled our heads with loads of interesting Romanian history. The castles (and the cave) were hauntingly beautiful as expected. Truly one of the highlights of our European holiday - thank you Boogie - keep doing you!

We had the pleasure to join the trip 'Two castles in one day'. It was our first time in Romania and we were really impressed. The trip was easy to book (we did it the evening before) and the driver and our guide came to pick us up absolutely on time. We drove to Peles, (absolutely TOP!), then to Bran (the famous Dracula castle) and the to Brosow, a little diamond in Romania. The weather was a little bit cold (actually it was snowing) and this added a magical touch to the already misterious Transilvania.
12 hours with a nice guide - Narcis- who explained us a little bit more about this beautiful country which is Romania. It was absolutely worth it. Thank you guys! See you soon again!

Firstly serban Riga was a top notch guide. We did the bear and dracula Castle private tour with serban. He made the day an absolute delight. Did more than we paid for as a sheep and food festival was on in the area of the castle and we went there and had a lovely lunch. Nothing was too much or any time limits you decide what you want and he delivers. Definitely recommend him . Returning next year and will use him again.

Boogie was an excellent guide and from the off tailored the experience to our small group of 5. His knowledge of the attractions was excellent and he even included some bonus pieces along the way. 12 hours is a long time but the day flew past. Seeing Draculas cadtle, Brasov and Peles castle is a must when spending more than 1 night in bucharest. Certainly the highlight of my trip to Romania.

"The only vampires in Romania are in Parliament."
We had a short time in Bucharest, Romania, but wanted to get to Transylvania and Castle Bran ("Dracula's castle"). We booked this tour online (very easy to do!), and were excited to get there. The morning of the tour, we were met by Gabriel. He was very professional, and as the other members of our tour had cancelled, we were able to get underway before the 8am start time.
Gabriel is extremely knowledgeable about Romanian history and the entire ride up to Sinaia we were treated to a Romanian history lesson beginning with the Roman invasion of Dacia and ending with the revolution of 1989 and Romania today. The tour for us included an Orthodox Monastery in Sinaia, Castle Peles, Brashov & the Black Church, and Castle Bran. The countryside is beautiful, even in the wintertime, and worth the time it took to see. If you have a spare day in Bucharest, this is a tour worth taking. Furthermore, it was the most reasonably priced of the online tours I found. Be aware that castle entry fees, photography fees and lunch are not included in the price of the tour - but in many of the other tours available those additional costs are also not included. Depending upon the group size and weather, the Black Church is not always available to visit due to time constraints.
Also of note, most museums in Bucharest, and Romania for that matter, are not open on Mondays.

My friend and I only had a long weekend to get the most out of going to Romania. If you are in the same position I highly recommend the full one day trip from Bucharest to Transalvaniya as it gives you a fantastic taste of the country.

Our guide Florin was just the best and made the day flexible to suite my friend and I, making it a personal trip.

Definitely value for money and time.
