Our guide Mattia is really good. He’s knowledgeable about the castles and Romanian royal history and stories. He’s so friendly that I feel very pleasant spending whole day visiting Transylvania with his guiding. The drive was smooth with great landscape. I got pick up at 7:30 and got to Castle Peles at 9:30. Had enough time getting touring the castle and one hour free time for photos around the area. Went to castle Bran and Braşov for lunch. Got back to city before sunset still. I would definitely recommend taking this tour if you don’t have enough time in Romania and still wanna see major spots in a day. Castle Peles is a must.

Matia(our driver and guide through the trip) was on time, he was very kind and patient and knew a lot of historical data to tell us about the places we visited. It was a pleasant trip overall, and we liked the fact that it was a small group of people so it was easier to manage things.

Hello, This was my first trip outside Bucharest and enjoyed it thouroughly. While the weather was on our side, the tour guide Serban kept the tour live and interactive. He shared not only the insights about the places we visited, but also the local pulse about the do-s n dont-s. "Perfectly timed with crispy commentary by Serban"... this can be a good summary of this trip!
