Amazing experience, very interesting tour if you don't have much time (if you do, spend some more time in Brasov, it's awesome!).. the guide was very friendly and helpful, very clear instructions and perfect knowledge, made sure everyone had a great experience, even with some covid restrictions, so we could make the most of it. I'd spend a bit more time in Bran Castle, to look around the souvenirs. Exact pick-up time and location was sent a bit late, but all went well and smooth :)

The guide was very helpful and gave in-brief information about both castles. I didn't expect that he would also guide us in the Peles castle, but with him, the tour was super fun. The public transportation to both castles makes it difficult to finish the tour to both castles within one day but this tour made it happen although we had very limited time in Bucharest. Highly recommended.

Me and my friend had a great time on this trip and our guide, Vlad, was funny and knowledgeable. I particularly liked that he would guide us but also leave us to explore on our own as well. Our driver was very sweet as well and he was even singing along to the songs on the radio! Great vibe, especially when you’re stuck in traffic :D
