This was a great time!!
Chad_T

Peles Castle was gorgeous and Bran Castle has the mystique of once being home to Vlad the Impaler and the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula. You will enjoy this activity much more, obviously, if you are into that kind of history, but as a side note the countryside of Romania is beautiful, much more than I would have expected, given the recent history of the country.

Why not?!

Eugene was phenomenal! He took the time to explain things and educate the group. He also offered assistance during lunch with ordering and suggestions on what to eat and drink. Our driver, Michael (spelling is off, I'm sure!) Was friendly and did such a great job navigating the summer traffic! Beware, "Dracula's castle" is merely a crusaders castle that Bram Stoker decided looked like a place Dracula would live. Also, I had hoped for an opportunity to photograph the front of the castle but only got the back side.

Not our best tour

Visiting the castles was very nice, but the guide was definitely not paying attention to where the group was and wasn't so friendly..we were in one room and she would start explaining what we see in the other room..

Tourist trap alert!!!
Joaquin_J

It is just a castle without any connection to Dracula. Avoid this tourist trap! It is overcrowded and there is literally nothing to see. You can see the force it to look like it is related to something, but it is actually nothing.

We had a wonderful time...

We had a wonderful time on our tour! Monica was a knowledgeable and personable guide. We particularly enjoyed Brasov, and the food stall Monica suggested for mici in Bran was amazing! She also led us to the best ice cream I have ever had the pleasure of tasting in Brasov. The drive feels long, but the driver never made me feel unsafe. Having a guide definitely enhanced the experiences at the castles, and it’s way better value to go this way than to rent a car and go yourself. The only thing I wish is that we’d had a bit more time in Brasov, but it would’ve made for a super long day! We’ll just have to come back another time. :)

Good concept but execution was hit-and-miss...
Tola_O
, Aug 2022
The concept of the tour is great. Unfortunately, it felt very rushed and I couldn't fully appreciate my surroundings, particularly at Brasov. The guide was constantly warning us about timekeeping so we didn't return late to Bucharest. Yet, even with all that pressure, we still arrived at least an hour half later than scheduled. It was partly to do with bad weather. We also made pit-stops that slowed us down. I thought perhaps the tour tried to cover too much. However, I know of others who have been on similar outings and had a completely different, positive experience. The best parts of the tour were when we were in transit, and the guide was giving us historical overviews of the significant sites we drove past.

The Transylvania area is very nice, and visiting places such as the Peles Castle and Dracula Castle guided by a person that knows the area and history was great. Our guide (Christy) was really nice and provided very interesting information that allows to understand Romania's history.

We had the pleasure of having Rodica as a tour guide, who was very informative and excessively professional. We came out of this tour having learned a lot about Romanian history and of the castles we visited. Overall a great tour. Thank you to Rodica and the to the driver.

A good value for money...

A good value for money for what was a long but interesting day. Peles and Brasov were amazing, Bran’s castle was not so great, very touristy and not particularly as rich with cultural history as the former. We were a bit disappointed with this aspect of the trip.
