    Good tour guide Marian, explained everything perfectly with great humor. First we visited Peles castle for about 30 minutes, from there we drove to Brasov there we did a short tour around the town and then went to lunch time. Lastly, we drove to Bran castle where we did the tour and had time to buy souvenirs. We had plenty of time to take pictures and the guide helped with recommendations. We were 12 in the group and rode in a minivan. You need to know that the travel is long, especially back from the tour so you may want to bring snacks and comfortable clothes. Overall really good experience!

Please keep it up. for improvements: the tour starts at 8 in the morning. So, please add the info to your page thay it’s not allowed to bring coffee inside the minibus/van to avoid delays. all in all, i highly recommend this company!!!
