These monastaries you really have to see. Fantastic paintings outside and inside. And you will find so many details in the paintings. If you like crowded visits then go on a public holiday in Romania! :-) But if you want to take your time for checking the paintings better find another day!

Due to the current covid situation, I had a private tour that day, which was awesome. Mathias was a great guide, has a lot of general Romanian knowledge along with historical. This made for great conversation on the way to and from the castles. I highly recommend the tour and would gladly do it again with friends and family in the future.

Gabriel was our guide and drove us on the day seeing both Bran and Peles castles. He was on time collecting us from our hotel and drove us safely to the castles. On the way we stopped off at a lovely restaurant that he recommended for lunch. He was a great guide, there with us all the time to answer any questions we had and take photos of our group. Even though we were over our time schedule with Gabriel, he even took us to the town where the Black Church was, so that we could see it. We had a great day, thank you Gabriel.

We booked a car with driver, for a trip to Kiev. A long trip, road not always the best, tough winter. We had a lot of worries and concerns, especially considering it was a new country for us. But from the very first contact, we were received with professionalism and care, helped in every single bureaucratic step, even the ones that would normally not be the agency's problem. We were guided through lab test for the custom, helped with insurance and all the information we needed to travel safely. When it came to the driver, we couldn't hope for better: a true gentleman, excellent driver, impeccable professional, who represented us with the custom authorities, provided information, supported us in our moments of tiredness, always ready to help. It is very rare to have professionalism and compassion combined together, yet this man, Mr. Paul Rotaru, is a perfect example. We felt safe and cared for. Professionalism at the highest level. Thank you.

We had a great time with our tour guide, Paul!! My boyfriend and I were vaccinated and decided to spend 4 days in Bucharest. We took this tour on a Sunday and due to the Covid season all the locations we visited were pretty clear. I was very appreciative that we didn't have to fight with crowds or long lines to enter the castles. This tour takes you to all the main castles/places in 12 hours. I chose this tour over the other ones offered on Tripadvisor since it gave us a good amount of time at each spot. I liked that we didn't feel rushed & got to really soak everything in. Yes, it seems long but I swear it goes by quick. Expect to walk a lot & definitely pack some easy to eat snacks. Also, don't forget like I did --- PACK COFFEE! The tour starts early and if you're not a morning person, coffee is a must. No more hesitating and just book it. Great price for a quality tour.
