    The tour was incredible! Tour started right on time and began with fascinating facts about Romania right away. Our tour guide Rodica made the trip so great, I don’t think it would have been anywhere near as enjoyable without her. I originally planned to just go to Dracula’s castle myself but I’m so so happy I didn’t! I loved the tour and would absolutely go on more or even the same again, it was an amazing experience and easily the highlight of my trip to Romania!

    My tour guide was Rodica and the driver was Cristian. They were perfectly on time for the pick up at mg Hotel. Radical LOOOOVES her job - you'll be able to tell. She is a very good guide with lots of side knowledge about the country and city. There was no question that she couldn't answer me, haha! Both the driver and guide speak perfectly fluent english. Very educational and you'll be surprised by the Peleş Castle. It's a little beauty. The tour started at 8am and I was dropped off at my Hotel at 9pm (due to bad traffic we were back a little later than expected! Cristian and Rodica did their best to get us back to the Hotel earlier. Took an alternative, faster route and made us see even more of Transylvania.) This tour is absolutely worth it. A tiny glance into the beauty of Romania. Thanks a lot for the wonderful experience!

    Great experience!! A very well organized tour about Transylvania. A great team, very attentive guide to us, and with a very vast knowledge. In short, a beautiful day full of beautiful places. Everyone wears a mask, and the participants are organized in such a way as to be a safe social distance. I highly recommend!!
