Good tour guide Marian, explained everything perfectly with great humor. First we visited Peles castle for about 30 minutes, from there we drove to Brasov there we did a short tour around the town and then went to lunch time. Lastly, we drove to Bran castle where we did the tour and had time to buy souvenirs. We had plenty of time to take pictures and the guide helped with recommendations. We were 12 in the group and rode in a minivan. You need to know that the travel is long, especially back from the tour so you may want to bring snacks and comfortable clothes. Overall really good experience!

This trip was our first guided tour experience in Sinaia and Brasov.we are very grateful to our guide who took us on a wonderful journey back in time. Our tour guide was knowledgable and very friendly explaining everything with great detail and passion. We highly recommend this tour to anyone! Thank you so much, we had a great time and we are looking forward to our next trip with you.

An exceptional day!! Valentina is an excellent guide, you won't see the hours on the bus go by thanks to her explanations of the history of Romania and Transylvania, as well as her anecdotes about the country. A very rich day, which makes you want to deepen your discovery of Romania. Thanks again. Paulina

Great in depth tour of Transylvania. Engaging host with a wealth of knowledge. Tour was rushed through Bran Castle so was unable to enjoy the full experience, unfortunately. We stayed on in Brasov, so would definitely recommend this tour as a way to see everything on the way to Brasov in a day.

Very good tour and we are lucky because we make a good tour team and we are everyone on the time.
