A trip worth seeing, Peles castle first is beautiful and incredibly interesting! And the other one, due to its character, may not have been beautiful, but it was incredibly atmospheric and dark and that's what it was all about. The only downside was that there were terrible crowds during Halloween.

A really organized trip to amazing destinations! Our tour guide, Nicoleta, was very good at her job and a really helpful and friendly person in general. The only 'minus' would be the heavy traffic during Halloween season, which caused small delays in our initial programme. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience!
