The trip was great, I highly recommend it. Although somewhat chaotic in terms of the pick up in the morning, the rest of the trip was very well organised and managed. The only thing to keep in mind is that there was little time for a proper sit down meal for the entire day but it was definitely worth it.

I loved the trip! The guide was amazing and explained a lot of details of Romanian history. I would like to have stayed more time in Brasov which is very beautiful and cozy. Bran Castle does not worth to visit it but it's fine to go there just to see the place.

The tour is worth it and even though it is a long day tour, there are a lot of stops and time to relax in the bus, so we enjoyed it. The Peles castle is more beautiful than the Bran castle. Don’t miss the opportunity to eat street food in the Bran castle area, it is very delicious. We followed our guide’s recommendations and we didn’t regret it. The whole tour duration was 11,5 hours. Our tour guide (Vlad) was very friendly, informative and funny. I would do it again!
