What people are saying about Bucharest
The tour itself was really good and the guide was amazing. However, we went during the "off season" for tourism but the weather was still nice so we had to wait quite awhile at Peles Castle to get in. This took up a lot of time for our full day. I advise you to bring something to eat on the way (although they say you're not allowed to eat on the bus) because the first place you will stop that has food is at Bran Castle and we didn't get there until around 3pm. But even then, you have to hurry inside the castle and then hurry up and eat at one of the stalls or restaurants at the bottom of the castle. Brasov is so incredibly beautiful to just walk around and enjoy the scenery and you will have plenty of time to eat there. We ran into a LOT of traffic on the way home and didn't get back in to Bucharest until 11:30pm so be warned of that because it is a possibility. But, like I said, the guide was great - funny and very friendly.
This day tour is absolutely superb, greatly exceeded my expectations. Tour guide Alene (Allen) was amazing, very personable, and shared a wealth of historical information. Logistically, I don’t know how else you could take in all three sights without a tour like this.., it is a full 12+ hours, the mountains are cooler and wetter than Bucharest, so dress appropriately, and recommend saving an appetite for a bistro in Bravos Square (look for locals). All round great day!
The tour was nice and Sorin, our tour guide, who has over 20 years of experience in touring, provided insightful information about the history and some cultural aspects. We liked that we skipped the line in both castles, however, both of the castles were very crowded, which could be expected in high season. A warning for those who get car sick easily, this tour is mostly about riding in a car. If it was not a lot of driving, we would have given this tour a straight 5.
Enjoyed our day. Nico, our driver, gave us plenty of time to see all the attractions and made sure we arrived in time to miss the long queues. He was also very flexible and he allowed our group extra time in Brasov so we had the chance to eat and have time to look around. Transylvania is charming and interesting and definitely worth a visit. I would also recommend Getyourguide for promptness, reliability and a friendly guide.
We really enjoyed our 12 hour trip to Transylvania. Thevtwo castles were magnificant and Brasow is a lovely town. the scenary is magnificent. Our driver, Adrian, was very considerate and kept us all entertained on the journey. He was an excellent and careful driver. All the staff were very knowledgable about the areas and venues that we visited. I certanly recommend this tour which is great value for money.
