A fantastic half day tour!

An excellent tour, very efficient and I was kept informed at all times about the arrangements. I was picked up on time at the prearranged spot. Mary the tour guide was excellent, very good at giving information about the 2 places visited and had a lovely, friendly manner. The bus driver was also very good.

Very Enjoyable!

Snagov is a lovely 14th century monastery situated in a little island surrounded by a lake but can be reached thru a walking bridge. It is the resting place of the highly revered Vlad Tepes the Impaler, the ruler of Wallachia and more famously known at Prince Dracula. The visit to Mogosoaia Palace (a famous venue for weddings; I never saw so many brides & grooms in one day!) was interesting too! It was our 2nd time with our lady guide Rodica who as always provided us with useful information. Thanks for making this day a very pleasant one despite the mild rain!

Our Guide was great, she really knew her stuff!

Despite the freezing cold, we enjoyed our excursion, the driver arrived to pick us up a few minutes early, everything went to plan and we learnt a lot from our very knowledgeable and friendly guide. The places themselves were less established than perhaps we expected - as we went in December we were the only groups visiting each site and no doubt we'd have spent more time enjoying the views during our visit if we'd visited in summer rather than during -7 temperatures!
