This is a brilliant tour option for anyone who wants to get the most out of a day in Transylvania from Bucharest! We started the day at 7 and had a full day of activities across the sanctuary, castle and Brasov. We had the most amazing tour guide in Dan who was so friendly and answered all of our questions and told us everything we needed to know about the area! Dan truly is an asset to the company and made us feel so at home with him. Nicolas was also great, calling us shortly after our booking to give us all the extra details of the day ahead. Really fantastic day and couldn’t have asked for anything more. Dan even gave us great recommendations on food to eat and and places to visit in Bucharest for the rest of our trip! Thank you for a great tour and we would highly recommend to anyone!! No other tour options like this in the area.

Our guide Alexander was great, but unfortunately we didn't have enough time with the bears.
