The driver/tour guide Marius was very informative, warm, and hospitable with perfect English language and a lot of knowledge.he was also very well with shortcuts of the road and his driving was safe. Peles castle was beautiful with all the detailing of the interior beautifully crafted. Bran castle was more plain bit, was expecting more about Dracula but its not revolving alot about the myth. Brasov was a beautiful and cozy and ive wished i spent more days at Brasov.

Great Way to See the Countryside in a Day

The guide was very familiar with the area. The castles were beautiful!! So worth the trip!! If you're looking for souvenirs the only place to do any major type of shopping for Romania handcrafts, food, and goods is outside of Bran castle. I wish I had bought more!! The mountains are beautiful! All around we had a great time seeing the countryside. The guide picked us on time and also gave us a brief driving tour of downtown in the morning before taking use to the first castle. Also the photo fee is totally worth it for the first castle.

Castle tours

Great driver. I was expecting that the person would take us thru the castles but that was not the case. Worked out well though. Very helpful.
