Full description

Enjoy a full-day trip from Bucharest to discover the Bran Castle, the inspiration for Dracula's Castle. Explore the city of Brasov on a guided tour and see the Peles Castle, the former home of the Romanian royal family. The first stop on your Transylvania adventure will be in the picturesque landscape of Sinaia, the so-called Pearl of the Carpathians. Here, discover Peles Castle, a masterpiece of design with unique turrets and great attention to detail.

After taking in some unbelievable views across the mountains from Peles Castle, the trip continues to the medieval Bran Castle, better known as Dracula's Castle due to its association with Vlad the Impaler. In Brasov, follow your guide on a walking tour to admire sights such as Brasov's Council Square and the Black Church, one of the main attractions in Brasov.

Perfect if you're looking for a day trip outside of Bucharest. Bus rides are long (about 2+ hours each way), but you are rewarded with tours of 2 outstanding castles (although Peles castle was far and away our favorite of the two), as well as a visit to a lovely old city center (Brasov). The guide was top notch.
