The trip involves a Long drive (7-8 hours) to and fro. I went on the trip during the Low season and did not wait long at the customs (5 mins, but I heard it could take hours on peak season). We were given ample time to explore each of the attractions - spent roughly 4-5 hours visiting the monastery, Veliko Tărnovo and had a short break sipping coffee at arbanasi village overlooking the Balkan mountains and a beautiful valley. Our guide and driver Roberto was really friendly and professional. He took care of us well and kept cracking jokes along the journey. Overall if you have limited time in Bucharest and would like to visit some of Bulgaria’s less accessible attractions this is a day trip you should embark on.
Started at 07:30 from old town, and back by 18:30. Had a great english speaking guide, Christian, who have traveled alot too and knew history and other things good. Went to Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle), its 2h 40min ride. Then to Brasov for a short time and had lunch there. And finally ending with Peles Castle. The best thing was its not like other tours where you just have to go and follow, this you can go and do it in your own way, very flexible.
Booked this tour last minute and had the most amazing experience with our guide Florin. Super nice guy and his car was comfortable and spotless. It ended up being just myself and my girlfriend, so it was a very tailored trip. Florin has great knowledge of Romania, but we also talked about other random stuff and he’s really easy to get on with. Would 100% recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see the bears and Dracula’s castle!
What a brilliant day! You see so much in one day, and the company is so easy to get hold of going up to the activity with any questions you may have. I had Rodica as my tour guide and she was so knowledgeable about the history and local recommendations of where to eat and shop. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would definitely recommend.
Absolutely magnificent experience. The trip was fantastic and the views were breathtaking. Our tour guide Alex was just fantastic. He gave us all the useful information and didn’t chase us around. He gave us sufficient time for everything.
