We booked the Peles Castle, Bran Castle and Rasnov Fortress tour and had a great time. It was well worth having a guide. We didn’t want to have to worry about driving or waiting in long lines. The views at Peles Castle were amazing and I was so excited to visit Bran Castle finally! The guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and an excellent driver. He was so patient as we had many questions about the tour and Romania in general. The transportation was super nice and comfortable. I would definitely book another tour if/when I return.
Considerations: - The van wasn’t luxury as written, it was a old and little dirty one, with no wifi. The tour didn’t take 9 hours, it took only 6 hours. The guide just went inside the fortress and it was very quickly, but the guide was sympathetic. We didn’t had time to have a lunch, only when the tour finished. There was no line to buy the tickets, I heard that it happens only in high season so, resuming, it could worth to rent a car instead pay for the service.
Started at 07:30 from old town, and back by 18:30. Had a great english speaking guide, Christian, who have traveled alot too and knew history and other things good. Went to Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle), its 2h 40min ride. Then to Brasov for a short time and had lunch there. And finally ending with Peles Castle. The best thing was its not like other tours where you just have to go and follow, this you can go and do it in your own way, very flexible.
Excellent choice if you wanna visit the castles and Transylvania. Florin ( our guide) was super informative about the history of the area and castles. He was also very kind and friendly making us feeling comfortable all the time. He toured us around the area in a small group of four people in around 6 hours. Totally worth the money and time spend.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and thoughtful. He took the time to help us take pictures. His style was very fitting for the tour. He was a very skillful driver and knew how to get around traffic jams.
