A very-very intensive trip with lots of impressions. If you do not have much time to spend in Transylvania, you should definitely take this excursion. If you have more than 1 day - spend more time there, as Brasov and the neighbourhood definitely deserv this! The guide was very informative and very caring at the same time, the bus is very comfortable, the schedule is structured so that the day goes as smooth as possible, given the route. We were with 2 children (10 and 5) - and they were totally happy and had enough time to rest on the way between castles. But be prepared that on holidays there may be a lot of queues everywhere. Many thanks for our trip and our unforgettable journey!

The excursion took place literally in the blink of an eye, despite the sufficient duration (1.5 hours). Our guide Radu told us many interesting stories, legends and facts that we would never have known on our own. We really enjoyed the route, which ran through half of the old city and ended at a tower with a panoramic view of the city. I highly recommend this team of guides.

Loved the guide explained that we’d have to do a late lunch in order to see Draculas castle which closed at 4:00. I wasn’t expecting that castle to be so crowded however.

Peles Castle is well worth a visit as is Brasov. Roberto was a fun driver and made the long journeys between destinations fly by.

I liked Peles Castle and the city of Brasov a lot. Dracula's castle was a disappointment, all very artificial and constructed
