Wonderful tour of Transylvania and two castles. Stefania was a great guide, told us history facts with humor and noticeable knowledge. Petre is a good driver and the sights were just amazing.

This tour was great. My only complaint is the amount of time to site see outside of the castles is very limited. Therefore if you want to shop with local vendors be sure to grab the first thing you see. Otherwise it was a great...More

Very nice, informative trip. You don´t have much time at the sites, because the drive is long (and other gusets cause some delays), but you know that beforehand.More

We took the two castles in one day tour and it was very informative and fun. The only thing we would change about it is to have more time in Brasov and less time with a sit-down lunch. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.

For a Monday, I would recommend a full day tour of Bucharest, or a Half day tour of Bucharest + a Half Day tour around Bucharest or full day tour to Bran and Brasov. Peles castle is closed on Mondays.
