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!!

Fantastic trip!!!!! Romania is a very beautiful country, as if torn from fairy tales, castles on top of the mountains among the forests. Do not miss Peles Castle and Brasov!!! SUPER food, drinks, people, the road through the mountains has an incredible view. Great experience and all due to the company, the guide Mary made my day with all the storys and legends about vampires, Dracula, kings and queens. Regarding the organizational part, I really appreciate the measures taken for our distance and protection of tourists. I received masks, there were disinfectants everywhere in the car, rows of seats were left in the bus between the passengers. In short, I felt super safe, given these times and I would definitely repeat this experience! Great Great Experience
