My adult children and I toured Peles Castle, Bran Castle, and Rasnov Fortress today. We had an excellent guide, Dan, who was knowledgeable in all facets of the tour whether it was history or where to take the most incredible pictures. We enjoyed the day immensely and recommend Dan to all who would see these sites with an expert guide.

We booked to see Bran Castle, Peles Castle and Rasnov Fortress. The trip took the whole day and was wonderful. We were picked up from the square in Brasov at 9am (In February in thick snow!) and dropped back there at around 6pm. Our tour guide Charlie was wonderful - welcoming, informative, knowledgeable and helpful through the day, so much... More

Great tour! My friend and I were fortunate enough to be the only ones on the tour at the time so made it feel much more personalised. Balazs showed us great spots to get photos of both the castle and the fortress and during the drive gave us some great facts about the history of both and Romania in general.... More

We booked the Bran Castle, Peles Castle and Rasnov Fortress. I'm sure no matter who took the tour we would have been captured by the by both the raw and polished beauty that these three landmarks had to offer, but it was made so much more enjoyable by having Charlie as our guide. He was entertaining and knowledgable. He had... More

To anyone interested; I highly recommand this tour. Not only is it beautiful: some of the views were absolutely breathtaking - But we were really lucky too, because our guide, Mr Balazs Karoly ANDRAS was excellent. Very professional, has an exhaustive knowledge about Romanian history, architecture, arts, wild life and cultural facts. The tour lasted for about 4.30 hours and... More
