the Bran castle was grest, but the tour to brasow was a nigthmare. there was no parking obtions for the bus, and we drove around and around and no time to eat at all, so when we got back at 9 PM we had not had anything to eat the whole day. there should have been time to eat at 12, and the brasow tour should have been cancelled.

Beautiful experience, definitely a must do if you come to Bucharest. Peleş Castle is something unique and the snow enriched it all making the experience unforgettable. Thanks to Eugenio, our guide, truly an excellent guide and a good person. 100% recommended.

We started the ride with no delays and we were on time. The guide was nice and smily and she told us many interesting things about the history of Romania and for each castle and the city of Brasov.

Had a lovely trip to Transylvania! The castles and Brasov were absolutely beautiful and we had a wonderful guide (Alex) who was so informative and made the trip such a great experience.
