What people are saying about Sinaia

Daniel was a great tour guide. I took a solo tour and he helped me in skipping ahead of the line on a very busy day at Castle Bran. I usually don’t take tours when visiting new areas but I’m glad I booked with this touring agency as it was fun and filled with knowledge. It was totally worth it!

Lovely day trip from Bucharest. Easy way to see all the attractions of the area in a short period of time. Our guide, Adrian was very knowledgeable and gave the best recommendations (go with him for lunch break in Bran and you won’t be sorry).

Nádherný, velmi zajímavý výlet. Zámek Peles je úžasný! Měli jsme privátní velké auto, pohodlné a průvodce byl velmi příjemný, vše zajímavě vyprávěl. Oběd v starém most v Brasově , domácí rumunské specialty byl vynikající. Výlet doporučuji!
