The tour included everything that was promised in the description and our tour guide was amazing, giving lots of additonal information throughout the drive and the walking tour. We made the mistake to go on a weekend in August, avoid if you can! Spent most of the day in trafic (roughly 8 hours) and the sites were so busy that only our driver (who seemed to know the right people) was able to find a parking spot without too much trouble. All three locations that we visited were worth the trip. Many thanks to our guide, who really made sure that everyone’s needs were met (asking if anyone was vegetarian, what we wanted to eat/see). 5-star review from us, strong recommendation to go during a weekday.
We booked the Peles Castle, Bran Castle and Rasnov Fortress tour and had a great time. It was well worth having a guide. We didn’t want to have to worry about driving or waiting in long lines. The views at Peles Castle were amazing and I was so excited to visit Bran Castle finally! The guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and an excellent driver. He was so patient as we had many questions about the tour and Romania in general. The transportation was super nice and comfortable. I would definitely book another tour if/when I return.
Considerations: - The van wasn’t luxury as written, it was a old and little dirty one, with no wifi. The tour didn’t take 9 hours, it took only 6 hours. The guide just went inside the fortress and it was very quickly, but the guide was sympathetic. We didn’t had time to have a lunch, only when the tour finished. There was no line to buy the tickets, I heard that it happens only in high season so, resuming, it could worth to rent a car instead pay for the service.
The Guide (Vili) was amazing! We had a basically private tour; he drove us & provided endless detail & information, took us to an amazing lunch & for coffees...it was like traveling the countryside with a friend.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and thoughtful. He took the time to help us take pictures. His style was very fitting for the tour. He was a very skillful driver and knew how to get around traffic jams.
