    Excellent tour! Easy to organise and very well delivered by the company. The guide Vlad from Brasov was excellent. He pocked us up at the location at exact time, we had a pleasant ride to all the locations and he showed us everything. The guy knows everything! After the tour he drove us back to the hotel. 10+!!!

    I booked this trip with my sister and we enjoyed every minute of it. The transportation was very comfy, our driver-guide showed up in time. Sorin (our guide) was very polite and made us feel comfortable as he was always cracking a joke. We loved the scenery and the landscape; we were in love with all the sites visited. We totally recommend it. The only thing is that we would like just a little bit more time in Braşov. :) Lydia&Katerina

    We had a great day with our guide Adrian. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and a good driver. He told us good stories about the places we visited and gave us good recommendations about the places where to eat. Peles and Bran Castles are beautiful and also the city of Brasov is a must see. I highly recommend this tour :)
