A very satisfying experience. They picked us up in the tour van at the meeting point. Our group was 5 people plus guide and driver. Mariano, our guide, proved to be an expert in Romania's history, politics and economics. He told us many things about the country from the very beginning of the journey. He helped us through the tail of Peles Castle to enter faster and explained many things room by room. We have had better and worse experiences with tours in several countries, but this has definitely been one of the best. Totally recommended.

The castle was amazing

The tour wasn’t as interesting as described on the advert. Although the information provided on the tour by the guide was accurate,the atmosphere in the group was cold and the group leader didn’t invite to a conversation. The guide was just taking us to the photo place and leave us alone with no interest on walking or telling us more beyond the just enough history learnt! Very punctual on the positive side!
