Mihai arrived on time and unfortunately I was still locked in our room. It took another 3/4 hour to get out and he was not fazed by the delay. SO that was a great start.
We finally set off on our day tour to Peles castle, Bram castle and Brasov Old Town.

Getting to Peles castle the queues were a bit long. School holidays and a weekend combined and he was quite happy to wait in the queue for us to get the tickets but we decided to take the time to instead to explore the grounds. I am sure the inside is great and like many of the manors we have visited in England. Really it is the externals and grounds that are stunning.
From there we continued on into Transylvania to Bram Villas for lunch. While we were eating Mihai went up tot the Castle and got our tickets. On some tours we have done we have had terrible lunches. This however was absolutely excellent with a totally amazing view across the village.
Then it was on to the castle which was great. Certainly worth the walk through tour and the torture exhibition was a reminder what foulness we as humans invent to..well,, torture our peers.
It rained as we left and continued through to Brasov. It was fine by the time we got there and it was another interesting place with the Saxon houses and villages surrounding, the large merchant Square, the Black Church and the White Tower.
Then it was a 3 hour trip back to Bucharest arriving about 9:30pm.

A very full day for sure but with limited time in Romania it was excellent value and extremely informative.

Mihai was an excellent guide and gave us a huge insight to the after war years and the communist era along with the prehistory.

This has been a great journey with Mr Mihai. He is charming and very professional and gives the best to his customer. He is client oriented. Highly recommended. I like his idea of providing a mobile to his customer. I will go again and it has to be with him.

If you pick one and only one tour in Romania, make sure it is this one! Mr. Mihai Caprarescu is extremely polite and professional. Every detail, from the luxury car to the schedule and the stops for having some rest during this excursion, are carefully planned and offer to the visitor a unique experience combining the magnificent Romanian nature, the beautiful monuments, knowledge for the country’s history, society and traditions. Mihai has a broad knowledge of his country and of the wonderful places we were visiting and he is happy to learn more about his guests’ country too.

What is even more important is that this is a private tour which means you do not have to stick to a rigid inflexible schedule. Mihai was kind enough to put up with my annoying habit to take pictures of nearly everything and to make extra stops just for that. He even went off the schedule in Brasov, when I told him I was looking for a specific area of this medieval beautiful town.

The excursion is also really worth it: the Peles royal palace is like a fairy-tale, the “Dracula’s Castle” is straight out of a movie or a book and Brasov is like a cart-postal. It is impossible for me to describe the magnificent and wild beauty of the Carpathians.

Last but not least the restaurant we ate at Vila Bran: exceptional local food at very reasonable prices with polite staff. The restaurant is overlooking the valley and offers unique view to the Dracula’s Castle. I was very excited because I was having my lunch looking at the Dracula’s Castle wrapped in fog; truly, an unforgettable experience. Oh, I even had the chance to touch a sweet baby deer.

To sum up, I have no hesitation at all to recommend this excursion, a true value-for-money with Mr. Mihai Caprarescu. Mihai, thank you and keep up the great work!

Am usually not a big fan of private tours but am happy that I ve decided to opt for this one with Mihai! He was very knowledgeable and shared a tremendous amount of information with us regarding the history of the country and the 2 castles we visited. The trip was a very long one (over 12 hours) and yet Mihai managed to stay alert and positively engaged with us throughout the whole trip.
I would strongly recommend tours with Mihai especially if u ve young children,I travelled with my 9 year boy and it was really a relief to c him happy while Mihai responded friendly and patiently to all his questions abt the castles (especially Dracula's )!
Whenever I visit Romania again I ll not hesitate to book tours with Mihai!such a wonderful day tour!

It was my pleasure Elena to go in the tour with you and answer Nadim the questions he had! I hope I did it right and it will surely be a day to remember with all the rain and lightnings that made the Bran castle visit even more interesting!
