  • Our tour was excellent! We had the pleasure of having Florin as our tour guide. He gave us full information regarding each destination and when we got there he was subtle enough to let us enjoy what we were seeing and to provide us with full historical knowledge of everything we were witnessing. We started with Bran Castle, then Rasnov Fortress, then to beautiful Peles Castle! Florin provided us time to shop, take pictures, and even took pictures of me and my wife numerous times. He couldn't have been more accommodating, knowledgeable, and friendly! Highly recommend this tour and Florin Cristea for all your Romania tours!!

  • I cannot recommend this tour enough! Florin is incredibly bright, personable, and professional. He is the owner of Flip Flop tours and made a point to make us comfortable and educated. One person cancelled at the last minute, so my fiancé and I had a private tour with this passionate guide. He is easily our best tour of our trip.

  • Floren took us to visit the castles and it was such a fun day. The beauty and history of these are phenomenal. We even had authentic, delicious, wood-fired pizza on the way back. A must for anyone visiting Brasov.

  • We had the best day thanks to such a wonderful tour and a super nice, extremely knowledgable tour guide! Much thanks to Flo for his informative and fun tour of beautiful Brasov and surrounding area! There is no better tour guide anywhere! Flo met us on time and we enjoyed getting to know him throughout our day. We had done our research before visiting Romania, but to hear first hand experience about what it was like to grow up in this country, made this tour extra special. At each place we visited, we learned more about the specific place and the whole country. Flo seemed to know people everywhere we went and was greeted warmly. We felt like we were in company with a local celebrity and it was obvious that he has friends all over. We went first to Bran Castle so we could avoid the weekend mid-day crowds. That was a perfect suggestion as it started to get busier as we left. Our second stop was at Rasnov fortress. We walked to the top and had the best view of the surrounding mountains and forests. Lastly, was the impressive Pelles Castle. Having lived in Europe for 8 years now, we have seen a lot of castles. But there was something extra special about this one. Flo was so knowledgable about each place and went above and beyond to teach us about where we were. When the day was finished, Flo recommended a restaurant that he has no affiliation with but is a personal favorite and we had the best meal of our entire trip at that restaurant. Thank you for a fabulous day! Viator is fortunate to have such wonderful tour guides such as Flo! He made our day very special for us!

  • Our guide Florin was fabulous, just as entertaining as knowledgeable about this tour. Great people's skills, we felt welcomed and well taken care of. We wished we could've spend more time at each site, especially Peles Castle, but there is so much to see and do in one day with this tour, it was certainly very well planned and timed perfectly. Their little bus is very comfortable, and we felt safe at all times. I highly recommend this tour and tour company, Flip-Flop Tour, if they are available, they can arrange other tours for you in and around Brasov. If you get the chance, take advantage of it, we weren't able to but wish we could!

  • This tour was amazing, the castles are awesome, the guide is very kindness and bring a lot of information, 100% recommend.
