What people are saying about Sud-Muntenia Region

Experiência incrível e inesquecível! Guia e motorista muito simpáticos e alto astral! Começamos a viagem 07h45 e tivemos em média: 1h30 no castelo Peles, 1h00 no castelo de Bran, chegamos para almoçar em Brasov às 15h00 e ficamos lá 2h00 (infelizmente não tínhamos tempo suficiente para conhecer a parte alta da cidade, que aparentemente é incrível)! Chegamos de volta em Bucuresti às 21h15 no centro da cidade.. Super recomendo!

Ovi our guide was fantastic! The tour was a great way to see a different part of Romania from Bucharest. It was a lovely, small group. Great variety of sites. Great information from Ovi, and the perfect amount of time at each site. Fun day!

Great! Out tour guide, Eugene, was very educated, told us a lot about history of Romania while moving in a comfortable bus from Buchurest to Transylvania. Also, very helpful and gave us quite enough free time, too. Highly recommended!

Very nice trip, a lot of exiting emotions, perfect views, the guide is a perfect and clever guy! Definitely will recommend this to everyone!)

Pele's castle was really beautiful and Brasov too. Bran castle was nice from the outside but more like a bad haunted house on the inside.
