An excellent tour, very efficient and I was kept informed at all times about the arrangements. I was picked up on time at the prearranged spot. Mary the tour guide was excellent, very good at giving information about the 2 places visited and had a lovely, friendly manner. The bus driver was also very good.

Our guide Roberto was very friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour, as he is able to give you all the background information you could need on both points of interest, as well as historical information on Romania and Vlad III. Excellent value for money.

Snagov is a lovely 14th century monastery situated in a little island surrounded by a lake but can be reached thru a walking bridge. It is the resting place of the highly revered Vlad Tepes the Impaler, the ruler of Wallachia and more famously known at Prince Dracula. The visit to Mogosoaia Palace (a famous venue for weddings; I never saw so many brides & grooms in one day!) was interesting too! It was our 2nd time with our lady guide Rodica who as always provided us with useful information. Thanks for making this day a very pleasant one despite the mild rain!
