  • FULL day tour that would be impossible to piece together on your own.

  • What an exceptional tour from start to finish. Meeting place was easy to locate, the van was comfortable. Matthew, our guide was knowledgeable and funny at the same time, looked after us so well, made the tour lively throughout. We’re a bit rushed due to time, however, would recommend this day out.

  • Excellent tour. Better if you go on a weekday. Saturday, October 21 was a beautiful day but very crowded, especially Bran Castle.

  • Absolutely incredible tour. If you don’t have a lot of time in Romania but still want to get a feel for the countryside, this is the tour for you. The meetup place was easy to locate. The tour guide, Stephania, was kind, accommodating, and knowledgeable. Never felt rushed for time.

  • Great day trip ! Nice to see the country side on the bus and both castles were great. Highly recommend. Cheers

  • Everything was fantastic. WE meet on time, guide waited for us, he was very informative and we had an excellent tour overall.

  • In theory a good trip but it's a lot of miles in a day and the Romanian traffic does cause delays . A delay starting and some delays at the castles acquiring tickets meant a shorter time in Brasov at the end of the day which was a shame as it would have been good to explore . Not entirely due to the tour operator , and the tour guide was very informative . Coach was comfortable and there were toilet and food breaks so no issues there which was good as it was a 12 hour day . Castles are well worth seeing , peles set in beautiful area , you can't see the whole castle as this is at extra cost and not included. Romanian countryside was lovely and this gives you a taste of the countryside for future explorations

  • The trip was wonderful. I did not give a five because of the crowded conditions we had at Peles Castle. Nothing our guide could have done. Madalina was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and kept us on schedule despite the unexpected overcrowding. Not only was Madalina knowledgeable about the castles, but the historical information she was so willing to share was great. As always seems to be the case, certain guests tend to detract from an experience. Please guests, nobody cares how brilliant you might think you are. Allow the very qualified leaders to give the history. Madalina, you handled the situation with the overbearing guest extremely well. Thank you for a great day.

  • Great tour and good value. Dracula's Castle Bran Castle was ok, but Peles Castle was one of the coolest places that I've been in a long time. In addition to some fantastic architecture, it has a fully armored knight and armored mount on display in the weapons room.

    I was introduced to Radler Beer at a café during the lunch in Brasov, which quickly became one of my favorites..

  • Not great- this was a large group tour and a lot of time was spent waiting for the group. We did not get to go into peles castle, despite it meant to be included on the tour as the queue was too big. No advanced tickets had been purchased for us. The guides English was very poor. Wouldn't recommend
