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.
Diana and Christian were a splendid duo - guide and driver. They were both very personable and spoke excellent English. They knew so much about the area and we had a great 2 days. It was early December and so cold, but that added to our experience. Snagov Monastery, Peles and Bran Castles, Rasnov fortress and Brasnov are all worth seeing. So much better to have personal guides rather than being on a group tour. We could not have seen as much if we had done it on our own using public transport.
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 and car driver were very friendly and informative. They would do anything for us - stopped along the way to take photos when requested and were happy to do anything we requested. Were always waiting for us on time and assisted us with all requests. Extremely friendly and helpful. The tour is a very good short insight into Romania- would one day like to return for a longer tour.
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.
