Six star tour with the awesome guide Andrei. Small intimate guided tour of max 8 with real care to attention from beginning. The friendest guide driver and all Andrei made trip perfect. Remember expect min 12hrs traffic depending. First stop Peles Castle. Spent 40 mins Andrei very informative & relaxed Another 40 minutes to take in breath taking vista & coffee. Onto Brasova and 20 minutes tour Central Old Town. 90 minutes for lunch & explore. Very affordable. Andrei NOT pushing any sales! Then 30 minutes drive to Bran Castle. This was anti climax as too many tacky tourist souvenir stands at entrance. Castle very small with own history but again mountainous vistas are breathtaking in 30 degrees heat. Returned back Bucharest 12 hrs. Safe driver. Be prepared for longer days when traffic worst(15hrs+!).The comfortable intimate trip with Outstanding Andrei makes the trip a must!
