What people are saying about Bran Castle

Our guide was really amazing. Unfortunately I didn’t get his name but he provided us with so much knowledge of the beautiful country of Romania and was very accommodating when we needed to stop to use facilities. He showed us the best places for photos and even helped take photos of us at each location. Overall a really great experience. Definitely a full day trip worth taking. We felt like we saw so much and learnt so much during our trip.

My friend and I loved this tour! We felt like it was the perfect introduction to Romania and some of the most stunning sights in this region. I was amazed that we were able to fit so much into one day! We got caught in the rain at Dracula’s Castle, but they had some rain ponchos on hand in the bus, and the rain added to the eerie ambiance of the whole experience. The bus was comfortable and had WIFI that functioned well. Highly recommend!

Christi/Christian was the perfect guide. Knowledgeable, friendly and patient. It was worth every minute for me, stunning scenery and not melting in the queues at the castles was a bonus. plenty of time to do your own thing and grab some food!

It was very nice and almost private tour only in 4 people. We enjoyed it a lot plus our guide seemed to like Romania a lot!

Good experience very nice guide! We got to see a lot!
