Our guide was friendly and made us feel very cozy during the journey. The pickup point was easy to find, but if you cope with a problem spotting it he is available when calling him! The trip was literally wonderful. When driving, he explained us what we were going to visit and telling us the whole history with the interesting and funny highlights very clearly. He also put on some music so that you didn’t get bored! He was willing to help us and answer our questions, he advised us where to have lunch, what to do during our mini break. The journey was absolutely perfect, not very tiring and money-worth-it. Thank you for this experience George!!

the castle of peles is the first stop and it is beautiful inside and out, the old part of the city of brasov is amazing, the place where you stop on the tour to eat and have an hour free, as a final point you visit the castle of Dracula, this has the charm of being the inspiration for the famous novel and movie, inside it is small, I don't dislike seeing it, but it was a bit disappointing due to the decoration and everything that has been created around it, ridiculous things, It looks like Halloween but as a joke, skeletons with scary movie masks, screens with ps4-type horror images, they have not respected the classic essence of this castle, before entering it there are stalls with many nonsense, t-shirts, skeletons, type fair town, otherwise fine, a nice and friendly guide who was explaining everything etc .... the trip back is heavy, due to the slowness, many sections of roads in poor condition and works. But it's worth the trip
