What people are saying about Sinaia

I enjoyed Marius the guide a lot as the tour guide and driver! The anecdotes, history and personal opinions he told us on the way and at the castles, streets and gardens were very clear and very interesting. I HIGHLY recommend this tour to everyone! And consider booking the 2 or 3-day tours since they are more flexible and allow you to experience the places and Romania itself much better. I would only suggest talking more peacefully about the roads and them bad drivers :))

Overall this is a pleasant experience that was worth the price. The drive from / to Bucharest is the longest part. That's why I feel this trip's decision to include two castles and a town is good. The long ride is not justified by a single destination. Be ready to return late (we arrived back around 21:30). Also take some snacks as the meal times can vary.

The tour was very well organised. Right from pick up till back all was good. Our tour guide Emmanuel was knowledgeable and was very helpful as well. Would definitely recommend this tour

Nice places to see, it seems a long day but totally worth the while. The lunch could be made shorter if there were options to preorder ahead, to save some time.

I enjoyed a trip which included a variety of destinations with a knowledgable and attentive host He always made himself available to us when we wanted help
