GLAD I DID THIS :) During my recent visit to Bucharest Romania, i wanted to explore something around the capital and i took the right decision to book this tour with GetyourGuide. I visited the stunning Peles Castle, was mesmerised by the stories that was explained to us with the visuals inside the Dracula Castle and finally visiting the beautiful town of Brasov. The tour started off well with being picked up on time, with a knowledgeable guide and proper planning with enough time to explore. Would highly recommend to do it.

There are no words to describe how amazing this trip was! Vlad is THE BEST! He is funny, and very knowledgeable, he made sure the trip was well organised, I had received multiple messages from him throughout the day to remind me what time to meet up and where the meeting point was. We had visited Perlas Castle as well as Dracula’s Castle, lastly we wondered off to Bransav town. The day was packed with loads of interesting facts. I only came to Bucharest for couple days and wanted to explore Transylvania, with so many different providers I wasn’t sure which one to choose that would be the best value for money and not overcrowded. I am happy to say that I made the right decision. The weather was lovely and we even got to see some fresh snow! I will definitely come back again next year! I would highly recommend going on this trip weekdays as Friday-Sunday gets really overcrowded! Definitely bring comfy shoes! And thank you to our driver Mario who made our journey back Bucharest fast! ❤️

We spent a lovely cold and sunny day for this trip, to corroborate that Bucharest is the last place to go in Romania. As soon as you leave the city, the real and beautiful Romania starts. Everything went as expected. Our guide Vlad made the difference though. He made the trip even better. Helpful all the time and giving all the tips needed. And because of him, I totally recommend this trip.
