Charlie, the driver and tour guide for this lake tour, is extremely professional and knows a lot about his country, he speaks a very good English and explained carefully the peculiarities of every place we visited – he even made sure I drank the water from different springs (it is very healthy for the human body, but tastes quite horrible!!!). In this particular region, water is a very important theme because of the high quantity of minerals; there are several thermal springs and resorts immersed in a wonderful natural setting.

I was picked up at my hotel, and was left there at the end of the day so I did not have to worry about anything. I was the only participant of the tour, so it was possible for me to request as many photo stops along the way. Only regret? We didn't meet any bear!!! :-)

I highly recommend Active Travel, they are serious and reliable and if I'm ever back in Romania I will definitely join another of their tours.

We had a fantastic day exploring Bran Castle & Rasnov Fortress. Our guide was Tudor who was very knowledgeable and friendly... He was also a safe driver! We would highly recommend signing up for this tour!

We had two fabulous day-long tours from Brasov, the Castle Tour and the Transfagarasan Highway. Very small groups, friendly and knowledgeable guides - we had a great time. Relax and let them do the driving; you won't be disappointed.

I went on this tour last week and it ended up being just me and the guide, Charlie. I was travelling alone and most tours wouldn’t take just one person so I was glad this one did. Charlie was an excellent tour guide and was full of interesting facts and stopped for me to take photos all along the road. It was snowing quite heavily at the top and there was no visibility near the lake but it was still a great experience. Would definitely recommend!

I wholeheartedly recommend Active Travel Brasov! My friend and i did both the Sighi/Viscri/Rupea & Peles/Bran/Rasnov tours a month ago and both days enhanced my experience of beautiful Transylvania so much! Dan N was the ultimate guide - a walking encyclopaedia of knowledge, so patient, with a great sense of humour & a gentleman! I left a little of my heart in Brasov & hope to return soon, for more excursions! JB

Thanks so much to all the gang in Active Travel (Marian, Charlie and Tibarius). We had fantastic trips to Bran Castle, to Sighisoara & Viscri and another afternoon of brilliant bear watching! The guides were super and great with the kids. We all loved it. Would highly recommend! We’ll be back

We got a tour of Bran Castle and Rasnov Fortess from Tudor and it was definitely the highlight of our stay. The whole experience was very personal as it was just us on the tour. We were collected and dropped off at our accomadation and the tour itself took approx 5 hours. Tudor is an excellent guide, he is one of these people that just seems to get on with everyone and has so much knowledge of the castle and fortess as well as the history of Romania. Do not leave Braşov without doing this tour and try and get Tudor if you can!

Did the transfagarasan, poienari castle and lake tour. The tour was amazing!!! I enjoyed it so much, the views and lanscapes are amazing. Andras, my tour guide, is an amazing guide! very sweet person, who knows so much and has so much patience.
The next time i am in Romania will definetely book anither tour with the company and if possible with Andras.
The tour really exceeded my expectations.
