Six star tour with the awesome guide Andrei. Small intimate guided tour of max 8 with real care to attention from beginning. The friendest guide driver and all Andrei made trip perfect. Remember expect min 12hrs traffic depending. First stop Peles Castle. Spent 40 mins Andrei very informative & relaxed Another 40 minutes to take in breath taking vista & coffee. Onto Brasova and 20 minutes tour Central Old Town. 90 minutes for lunch & explore. Very affordable. Andrei NOT pushing any sales! Then 30 minutes drive to Bran Castle. This was anti climax as too many tacky tourist souvenir stands at entrance. Castle very small with own history but again mountainous vistas are breathtaking in 30 degrees heat. Returned back Bucharest 12 hrs. Safe driver. Be prepared for longer days when traffic worst(15hrs+!).The comfortable intimate trip with Outstanding Andrei makes the trip a must!

The trip is well worth the money. Andrei was our driver and guide for the day and did a outstanding job. His English is very good and was quick to help in any manner needed. There was only 8 people in our group so it was way better than being in a big group. The castles are well worth visiting.

Marius is an excellent guide! He was so knowledgeable, helpful, and funny. The tour was informative and the castles are beautiful. Brasov was a nice city to explore as well and our guide did a great job giving tips along the way. Well worth the trip and I highly recommend!
