Our tour guide today was Bogdan. He was incredible. For a 12 hour tour, he was super respectful and made great conversation all day. At all the places we stopped, he was very accommodating and patient with our group. He was also very knowledgeable of everything we saw today. He shared many stories and the historic events of Romania in general. Could not have asked for a better person to spend the entire day with. We really appreciate Bogdan. This was our first time using a tour with GetYourGuide. Amazing experience overall and will continue to use to find guides in the future.

This was an amazing tour into the Carpathian mountains and whilst it took a couple of hours of driving, the scenery and sites visited made it thoroughly worthwhile. We particularly enjoyed Peles castle which is/was stunning. Our host Bogdan was very friendly, humours and knowledgeable about the area and the sites we visited. We had priority access to Peles castle and managed to get in ahead of the huge crowds which had arrived after us! The early start and long day is worthwhile in order to be able to do this. Thank you Bogdan for a great day!
