Really enjoyable tour of the three castles. Our guide arrived exactly on time in a spotless, comfortable car. Very knowledgeable about the history of the region, the best photo spots and great conversationalist. All 3 castles very impressive, different and worth visiting. We arrived at the final castle to discover that my wife had left her bag (and passport 😱) sitting on a wall at the last castle. Not only did he drive straight back, he called his brother, who lived nearby, to see if he could get there before someone took it. The brother retrieved bag and passport and the trip continued like nothing happened. He didn't even ask for any additional payment for the considerable detour. Absolute gent. If he is representative of the company, would highly recommend!

We took the 3 Castles trip with Valentin, and had a great day. We are both limited in our mobility, and he was patience personified. He also was a good driver, and a fund of information about the places we visited.We would recommend him to anyone.

We found this to be a a highly informative tour with our tour guide, Dan. He was right on time to pick us up at our hotel. With the private option, we proceeded at our own pace. We skipped the lines at Peles and Bran, and enjoyed the extended (first floor) visit at Peles. It's a long day (8:30 to 6) but worth it. Dan made it special.

The private should always be a better option. Also as the guide is always at your disposal. Thank you for the nice words for Dan.

I couldn't decide between giving this tour 3 or 4 stars, because where it fell down wasn't necessarily the fault of the tour guide but it wasn't handled very well. Basically, Peles Palace was very well done, good tour with excellent knowledge and very engaging. The issue happened between Peles and Bran. We had bad traffic which cut into the time but then also we stopped for lunch (the tour guide and assistant ordered pudding when no one else did, so we got drinks to fill the time of them eating, spending more money than we needed to) then there was a lot of queuing for the castle. The result of this was an incredible rushed tour of Dracula's castle which was a shame as I had been most looking forward to this section of the day. I felt unable to properly appreciate the rooms or read the information plaques as there was a need to move quickly- as a result I missed things which I would have liked to have seen. We were told our tickets included all areas but there was no talk of going into the exhibit of medieval torture weapons or the dungeons level- either our tickets didn't include this, which I would have liked to have the opportunity to add to my ticket as a similar offer was made at Peles, or it was and we were denied this chance due to timings- denying us access to an area we had paid to see. I appreciate that this was done by the tour guide to get us to the fortress before it closed but as I had booked this tour largely for Bran Castle, I was left disappointed. I think perhaps this could have been avoided with the restaurant at lunch- this took up a large chunk of time (especially the need to wait for the tour guide's pudding) and it was implied that it was a part of the day as we were ushered in to this one restaurant- HOWEVER, it wasn't as we all paid for ourselves- which is a shame because a quick snack from the food stalls in the local market at the base of Bran Castle would have sufficed and saved us time! Yet, this wasn't offered as an option- of which we should have been made aware. The fortress was very cool with stunning views so I was very glad to make it in time to see. The tour guide did then show us some additional sights such as a look at the main ski resort of Brasov and a stunning view point. It was a little disconcerting to hear the guide say he didn't enjoy the tours and it was just a job to him, not a passion. So, a mix really because the sites were worth it but the logistics and the tour guide (who spoke to my chest every time I asked a question) were far from desirable.

Hi, Thank you for the review. It always helps us know more info from the tours and update our trip notes or information for the guides. After every tour we are analyzing the internal trip report of the shared open group tour option that you joined and we have compared it with your review; the assistant was actually our office staff that was checking the trip notes and timings, especially as August is a very busy month with lots of traffic delays and queues. We wish you great trips and experiences worldwide. Razvan
