Full description

Discover some of Romania's most famous castles on a guided day trip from Bucharest. See Peles Castle and Bran Castle and take some free time to go on a stroll through the Old Town of Brasov. 

Following pickup from Bucharest by bus, leave the city for Sinaia. Relax on the drive to Peles Castle, the former residence of the kings of Romania. Here, admire furniture, ornamental objects, carpets, tapestries, sculptures, paintings and collections of weapons from the 15th to 19th centuries.

Continue to Bran with its famous Bran Castle, also known as Dracula's Castle. Learn about the castle's history and how it had a strategic mission due to its position on the border between Transylvania and Wallachia.

Spend free time in Brasov and admire the town's houses built in the Renaissance, Baroque, Provincial, and Neoclassical style. Explore the medieval fortress of Brasov, formerly one of Europe's most secure fortresses. See the preserved old wall, the Black and White Towers, and the Weaver's Bastion.

Learn about Catherine's Gate, situated near the Schei Gate in the western part of the fortress and its 4 little towers which symbolize the medieval right of life and death over the vassal's lives. Later, return to Bucharest for drop-off at your accommodation.

Serban, our tour guide was very nice with lots of knowledge. He explained everything to us and we finished our tour on time! Peles castle was amazing, and Dracula's Castle was good. You need to have cash to pay the entrance for the castles. You also need cash to buy food and souvenirs in Brasov.

Amazing trip to Peles Palace, Bran Castle and Brasov. The tour guide Tudor was knowledgeable and helpful. Peles Palace was closed but it was still nice to appreciate from outside. The journey was comfortable in the bus although long hours. Overall this was a worthwhile day trip from Bucharest. Would recommend.

The first time I took a tour through this service, I liked the tour itself. It wasn’t without adventures: I chose a meeting place, in the end I was assigned another place, but as it turned out, another address was still available (but not for me), then they sent the wrong car number, the guide did not happily answer organizational questions, it felt like he was working just for the money. He mentioned tips several times, said inappropriate things to the driver in the local language, thinking that no one understood him. He turned on loudly the news on the radio, although he was asked to turn on the music, he touched on a political topic. In general, there was a pleasant impression of the tour.
