    Had a really great time on this tour, Vlad was very knowledgable, friendly and had a great sense of humour. He was also a very careful driver and make us all feel safe. He knew a lot about Romania and was very passionate about his country and culture. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

    The tour was fantastic. Vlad thé vétéran guide was very informative, entertaining and pleasant . I didn’t feel the lengthy trip of the tour because the scenery and sights are impressive. I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to end. Transylvania is a must to experience. We were a private group of 7 in a comfortable and spacious van. Meals are not included but there are an array of restaurants to choose from in Brasov Old Town which is a beautiful place. Highly recommend this trip. NB Bran castle accepts card/cash payment, Pelés palace take cash only. There is an atm at Bran markets if needed.

    Very well organized tour. Precise guide both in respect of timetables and stages and in telling historical events related to different contexts. The places are a must for anyone who wants to visit the most significant places outside the capital. Spectacular soups during the stop in Bran. Don't miss them!
