Full description

Spend a day immersing yourself in the landscapes and landmarks of Transylvania. Encounter the historic castles, rich scenery, and evocative atmosphere of this unique region.

Start your day trip with a visit to Peles Castle, set in the scenic mountain resort of Sinaia, known as the Pearl of the Carpathians. Tour the Romanian royal family’s former summer residence, which showcases a magnificent palace in the German Renaissance style.

Next, enjoy a walking tour of the town of Brasov. Start from its main square, and stroll around its well-kept historical center as you see sights like the Gothic Black Church, old City Hall, and the narrowest street in Europe.

The guide was very nice and the car very comfortable. The only negative side was the time, mainly to visit Dracula’s castle, we were able to stay there just for 1h which was not enough to see all the details or explore the area around with many street shops and local food. I am mentioning this, just because the main reason for us taking the tour was to visit this castle, so we were a bit disappointed with how the time was managed. But again, the guide was great it was just this issue regarding the short time.

Andrei was an absolute gem of a tour guide, so knowledgable sharing the history of the region and the castles we visited. We were lucky enough to hear things about his life growing up in Romania as well. Really well organised, insightful and fun day. Would highly recommend, definitely the highlight of our trip!

This was a very fun day trip! Our guide, was exactly on time in my hotel and he was really friendly and knowledgeable about Romanian history and geography, far more than the scope of the trip! He enjoys his job and that improves the experience for all of us! Overall we all loved the trip, plus the beauty of Peles and Brasov! Bran Castle was too very impressive, but not as much as the other two!
