Castles of Transylvania: Private Day Trip from Bucharest

Peles Castle, Bran Castle, and Brasov are all highlights of Romania, but if you’re based in Bucharest, it can be tricky to tick all three of your list without hiring a car. On this tour, visit the two castles and take a walking tour of Brasov in the company of an English-speaking guide. Travel comfortably in an air-conditioned minivan or car.

Searching for Dracula: Private Day Trip from Bucharest

If you’re interested in Transylvania’s Gothic heritage, this private Dracula-focused tour is for you. While you receive the undivided attention of a private guide, follow a customized itinerary that encompasses Poienari Fortress and Curtea de Arges, lesser-known locations far from the tourist trail. A guide helps you distinguish fact from fiction, and convenient hotel pickup and drop-off are included.

Gabriel was our guide and drove us on the day seeing both Bran and Peles castles. He was on time collecting us from our hotel and drove us safely to the castles. On the way we stopped off at a lovely restaurant that he recommended for lunch. He was a great guide, there with us all the time to answer any questions we had and take photos of our group. Even though we were over our time schedule with Gabriel, he even took us to the town where the Black Church was, so that we could see it. We had a great day, thank you Gabriel.

We were a group of three and booked the privat daytrip to the transalvanian castles (Bran & Peles) to get a good first impression of what Romania is while a short trip to Bucharest. The tour was great! Gaby picked us up early at the hotel and drove with us to Peles where we got a very informative and impressive privat tour through the castle. After that, on the way to Bran’s castle we had a traditional lunch in a restaurant Gaby recomment and ist was great. Bran was also nice but - for me - Peles was even more awesome. Then, after a short but nice stop in Brasov, a beautiful old town with many German influences Gaby drove us back to Bucharest. While the whole trip Gaby was a perfectly great guide who entertains us with a lot of interessting Information and fun in a perfect English and also answered all of our questions. If I stay in Bucharest for another time, I will definetly book a tour guided by Gaby again.

Great private tour! We had limited time due to a flight in the evening and were able to see both Brun and Pelles castles in addition to the monastery near Pelles. Gabby was great at keeping us on track to make a 7pm flight home.He provided a great deal of history and knowledge. I highly recommend the private tour. It is perfect for seeing the most spectacular sites in Romania!

The experience was fantastic. Gaby was our guide and he is a very knowledgeable and pleasant person. Everything was well organized so we could enjoy the busy places at very quiet moments. The only point that i would improve is the hotel in Sighisoara which was outside the citadelle and not at a walking distance.

Our guide and driver, Gabriel, made all the difference and is what made the tour great. We were two adults and the company sent us a message the day before to confirm pick up times and location. Gabriel arrived early and picked us up from our hotel. First we visited Peles Castle and Gabriel was very knowledgeable and able to answer all of our questions. He is a fantastic English speaker. Next he helped us pick out a traditional place for a quick lunch before we headed over to Bran's Castle. Although interesting, I think that Peles Castle was more engaging, although less famous. Finally, we had an opportunity to explore Brasov, which was super charming. The Old Town is idyllic. Gabriel then drove us back to our hotel. It was a long day but Gabriel made it interesting and go by quickly in the best possible way. Hire this man if you can.
