Full description
Enjoy a comfortable ride in an air-conditioned vehicle from Bucharest to Bran Castle, the inspiration for Dracula’s Castle. On the journey, your local guide will tell you tales of Transylvania’s history and mythology as you journey through the majestic countryside. You'll also get to go far beyond the standard tours of Transylvania’s legendary castle by going 30 metres underground the castle to the Time Tunnel. The unique Romanian construction was designed to describe the history and culture of the Bran Castle with a state-of-the-art multimedia exhibition. To reach the tunnel, you will get into a 'stone' elevator, located right in the courtyard of the castle and which is considered to be the one of the greatest current innovation among the European museums. After the tour of the castle, you will have two hours to have lunch in Brasov, a picturesque city in the heart of the Carpathian Mountains. Follow your local guide on a tour of this impressive city. Visit Brasov’s Council Square, the incredible Black Church, and the city’s old defensive walls.

It was all worth it. Peles Castle is very nice on winter. Dracula Castle didnt meet my expectation. It is true what they are saying Peles Castle is a must. What i didnt like with the tour was the Brasov city tour as it was too late when we went there. But it is because of the heavy traffic. The tour is overall great and the driver and tour guide were both amazing. No problems at all. A great value for money considering that you have to do it minimum 12hrs. Im a solo traveller and usually does DIY but this trip is worth it. I wouldnt do it on my own if i have day trip. If you do it your own better stay over in the area overnight.

Our guide was really amazing. Unfortunately I didn’t get his name but he provided us with so much knowledge of the beautiful country of Romania and was very accommodating when we needed to stop to use facilities. He showed us the best places for photos and even helped take photos of us at each location. Overall a really great experience. Definitely a full day trip worth taking. We felt like we saw so much and learnt so much during our trip.

My friend and I loved this tour! We felt like it was the perfect introduction to Romania and some of the most stunning sights in this region. I was amazed that we were able to fit so much into one day! We got caught in the rain at Dracula’s Castle, but they had some rain ponchos on hand in the bus, and the rain added to the eerie ambiance of the whole experience. The bus was comfortable and had WIFI that functioned well. Highly recommend!
