Experience the Transylvanian life of today and of yore, in some of Europe's most well-preserved Medieval towns, and stunning castles, that famously served as the haunting backdrop to Bram Stoker's legendary novel, Dracula. The medieval town of Brasov displays rough, cobblestone streets dominated by pastel-colored houses and features Old Saxon architecture. The Carpathian Mountains and citadels create the skyline playing host to Bran, the gothic fairy-tale castle associated with Prince Vlad Tepes. The 15th-century Walachian Prince provided the inspiration for Bram Stoker's famous antagonist, and though the connection is tenuous, the deep bond of the locals with its legend is not. Then see the Black Church, the Citadel of Brasov, Ecaterina's Gate, the White and Black Towers, the Bastions of many traditional craftsmen, and Rasnov Fortress. Enjoy an unmissable taste of Old Romania!

We had an absolutely brilliant time hiking in the Fagaras mountains! Our guide Bogdan was fantastic, picked us up and drove us there. He was very experienced and made sure to show us all the best sights. The hike was spectacular-starting with luscious forests, then into huge snow-covered valleys, climbing to an incredible view of Lake Balea. Finish by descending into Lake Balea for a drink at the hut, and taking the cable car down (getting stunning views of the transfagarasan route and waterfall). The whole day was about 10 hours. One thing to note: We went in early October and by that point there was snow on the mountains. We didn’t quite expect that (we thought there would be no snow yet). It was fine, we had hiking boots, the weather was lovely, and our guide Bogdan provided us with suitable equipment and expertise to guide us hiking through snow but I’d say keep that in mind and make sure to wear suitable clothing!

This is a brilliant tour option for anyone who wants to get the most out of a day in Transylvania from Bucharest! We started the day at 7 and had a full day of activities across the sanctuary, castle and Brasov. We had the most amazing tour guide in Dan who was so friendly and answered all of our questions and told us everything we needed to know about the area! Dan truly is an asset to the company and made us feel so at home with him. Nicolas was also great, calling us shortly after our booking to give us all the extra details of the day ahead. Really fantastic day and couldn’t have asked for anything more. Dan even gave us great recommendations on food to eat and and places to visit in Bucharest for the rest of our trip! Thank you for a great tour and we would highly recommend to anyone!! No other tour options like this in the area.

I'm actually speechless. The tour was absolutely perfect. First we hiked up the Transfagaras Strait and then hiked around 4 1/2-5 hours in the Fagras Mountains. We took a total of 3 peaks and the view was just breathtaking. My guide Mihai was well equipped and always gave me information about the mountains during the tour. I would do it again anytime!

A fantastic tour with a guide who knows a lot about the country and its history. Nice car with air conditioning great stories about the places we visited and very helpful with all questions Thank you so much

Nicolas was a fantastic host, very knowledgable and nothing was too much trouble for him. Would highly recommend.
