This was a great trip and it was great value for money. Although we were a big group (approx 50), it didn't really matter. The guide Vlad was very informative and knowledgeable and supplied us with very useful information throughout the day. If you are going on this trip, I recommend bringing cash for Peles Castle in particular.

Excellent value for money! Our tour guide, Mr. Tudor, a nice local gentleman, was attentive to every detail: from the information to the meeting point, taking care of everyone with due attention! Nice tour, I was happy with the places I visited, the only caveat is that Peles Castle is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays until May '23. For those wishing to book, I recommend from Wednesday onwards because it really deserves a lot!

Starting with pick-up van 16 people at the hotel in the center early in the morning, the driver and guide at the attractions very kind and competent. Done tour of Peles and Bran Castles. The first much more interesting to personal taste, the second feeds the myth of Dracula. After the 2 visits stop for lunch in the city of Brasov in a restaurant recommended by George, not bad. What can I say very satisfied with the experience. I would recommend it, all at a competitive price. Around €80 for 2 people, just think that car rental costs around €70 a day, to which you then add the 3 hours of driving to get there and the 3 hours of driving to return.
