Excellent experience!! We loved our tour guide Serban!!! Give this man a raise!! He explained everything in our road and on attractions, gave us tips for life in Bucharest and made sure we are all satisfied. We didn’t have to wait in line for any of the castles. Maybe it was because of the weather too ( a little bit raining). Serban had made the whole experience excellent with his cheerful and positive energy. Very funny and organized. Tip for travellers: as advised also by the guide, have cash on you at least 100 lei per person for Peles castle and some extra for going around there. Also book your brans castle (dracula) tickets online to avoid waiting in lines. Thank you for everything. Totally recommend it!!

Vlad was our tour guide and he was absolutely amazing!! He was very friendly and he basically talked all the time we spent travelling between one place to another and providing us very interesting info about Romania and the places we were visiting which made the long trip very enjoyable. A lot of respect for his patience with people that didn't follow instructions or didn't have cash with them despite the many reminders in the email - he always stayed friendly and did his best to help out. I would highly recommend this tour with Vlad!

A very well organized and costeffective daily tour. We visited two of the most famous and very well preserved castles in Europe. An experienced tour guide, who knew his job, had been always feeding us with various information regarding the history of Romania, its traditions and the way of life. Our first stop was Peles Castle the former summer residence of King Carol I and Queen Elisabeth. One of the unique castles in the world due to its construction and exibitions. After a full tour and some (not enough for me) free time we headed for the Dracula Castle deep into the region of Transylvania. Spending a couple of hours in the Dracula Castle and tasting some of the most traditional meals of the country we left for the city of Brasov, which for me was a destination I would really seek to visit again. Finally having spent the whole day exploring the Carpathians, we started our we started our way back to Bucharest which took more than four hours due to traffic. A strongly advised tour!
