The tour was really good. Everything went as planned and as described. The guide was really good. She had good communication skills, was always available to help us and explained everything well and with a sense of humour. I really recommend it, particularly if you choose Monica as the guide. Just be prepared for some time in the bus, because there is a lot of distance to be covered.

Amazing day trip!
Great experience! Communication with your company was reliable in finding out trip pickup time from our hotel. Alex our tour guide was energetic, friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. It was a pleasure spending the day on this tour.
The sights are a must if you only have a short visit to this country. The beauty of the Royal Summer Castle….just amazing!
We felt totally immersed into the history of Romania. I’m so glad we had the opportunity to take this tour, and the extra bonus was the beautiful fall colors in the mountainside!

A wonderful day out!
A full day out tour in Romania! A great way to learn about the history of the country through historical truths and fantastical stories that made the country what it is today.

I was informed ahead of time that my pickup for the tour would be at a nearby hotel, and they arrived early, but by no means in a rush, in order to make up for any time that might be lost during the morning traffic in busy București; as such, we arrived in good time to all of our destinations.

Our guide was excellent, she never ran out of energy during the entire tour, full of information about any single thing and always made sure to check in on everyone if they had questions or needed a break. The history of each castle, it’s occupants, the times and troubles that faced both them and the entire country - fascinating stuff!

Peleș castle, Bran castle and the Black Church of Brașov all in one day made for some great memories (and souvenirs)!
A must if your stay in Romania is short!
