We met Gabi in the morning on the scheduled time. Went to the stunning Peles Castle, after we stopped for lunch, I had a tradicional Romenian stew, it was beautiful! After lunch we went to Bran Castle and then we stopped in Braşov for a bit. Gabion was very informative during the entire journey. Thank you.

Everything perfect, you need to go to the entrance of the Visitor Center 30 minutes bifore the visit. Then a guy will collect all the people, help them to enter. The visit of the parliament is instead guided by local personnel of the palace. The building is really a must, you need to go.

The tour was amazing . Our guide Gaby was really knowledgeable about all the locations & gave us detailed information on history of the castles & brasov . The duration of the trip is really long, It was around 16 hours because it was Halloween weekend . Overall we totally loved it .

If you’re thinking about Dracula’s castle tour then do this one and go to the royal castle as well. I personally thought the royal castle was better than Dracula’s and our tour guide was brilliant. She was very knowledgeable and an excellent host.

Absolutely brilliant. A great 12 hour day with a very knowledgeable guide. Highly recommend
