Very friendly guide and driver!

My fiance and I booked the private Dracula’s Castle & Sighisoara 2-Day Tour from Bucharest with Unzip Romania on 28th July 2016. I had looked up plenty of reviews on Trip Advisor and I was convinced that we would be in good hands. I was right! Diana, the guide, and Florin, our driver, was uber friendly! They feel more like friends than guides. They were extremely punctual in picking us up from the hotel. The car was clean and it smelled good. The journey out of Bucharest was a couple of hours and we can't help but fall asleep in the car. hehe. Diana was knowledgeable and was able to share information about the attractions in detail with us. We were also able to skip the queues at the castle. *Phew~* The castles were crowded but nonetheless an eyeopener for us. My favourite part of the trip was Sighisoara and Brasov. The pace is kinda laidback and we enjoyed a few drinks in the local cafes. The weather could be kinder though. Do expect to see many people at the areas and enjoy p
