Adrian was prompt picking us up in the morning as we settled into a pleasant drive to Braşov. Stopped for a quick coffee about halfway. Adrian showed us around Braşov and gave us plenty of time to explore on our own. We then drove to Bran Castle and Adrian was so knowledgeable about the history as he gave us a private tour. Finally we went to Peles Castle and once again astounded us with his depth of knowledge. Amazing day, one a highly recommend.

My idea was to have a day trip from the Romanian capital in Bulgaria and if I like it to stay and explore more. I loved Ruse and Veliko Tarnovo and actually did not go back to Bucharest at the end of the tour. Those 2 cities truly fascinated me and I wanted more off-the-beaten path of Bulgaria. I recommend you this tour as fantastic is not enough to express it!

This trip is a must do if you visit Romania. The Bear Sanctuary is a brilliant place and full credit goes to everyone involved in the Sanctuary and for everything they do for the bear. Some very sad stories for some of them but happy endings now living their lives at this beautiful place. Bran Castle is a must. Its a stunning setting in the beautiful town of Transalvania. Our Guide and driver for the day Florin made this even more special with his knowledge and help with all our questions and needs. This trip is very highly recommended

My husband and I wanted to do a private tour so our hotel got us the cheapest deal possible which was EUR 180 for full day tour of 2 castles and Brasov. We enjoyed our day at our liesure. Must visit if you have a spare day in Bucharest. Both Peles and Bran castle were nice experience. Brasov town tour and Christmas market was amazing too. You have to pay entrance ticket to both the castles 30 & 40 RON.

Our first private tour and we were delighted with the experience. The tour was fast-paced, which was fine for us - be ready at 8 am. We saw so much more than if we would have tried it on our own. We were lucky to have a friendly guide, Michael. He was knowledgeable and entertaining, with excellent driving skills. Our plan of visiting Romania during COVID-19 end well, and I hope to discover more in the next years.
