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. When you arrive at the castle, get a taste of Romania with a wine and cheese welcome in an exclusive room not open to the public or other tour companies.

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.

The guide was very good. I think people should know that 12 hours trip are includes 8 hours of driving!!! If you can take more days at the region will be better. We were exhausted and the traffic was good. The Dracula castle was very nice and the wine and cheese excellent. Brasov was too short to visit, because at the restaurant we wait almost one hour for the food. When we finished eating we just had more 20 minutes to visit.

Fantastic tour and highly recommended.

Our Group had the best time! All the logistics were flawless from pick up to drop off. They thought of everything down to even bathroom brakes. Rodica was absolutely one of the best tour guides I have ever encountered. She was very knowledgeable of the Romanian history, the culture and the heritage of the area. She made learning fun as well as educational. Rodica has a great sense of humor, fun to talk to & will take you to all the best spots & even help you pick the best local dish for lunch. The driver did a great job being on time & getting us safely where we needed to go. Take the tour...You won't be disappointed!!
