  • From Bucharest: Dracula’s Castle Full-Day Tour

    1. From Bucharest: Dracula’s Castle Full-Day Tour

    Immerse yourself in the legend of Vlad the Impaler, inspiration for Count Dracula, on this full-day tour of Transylvania.

    Start your tour by driving towards the region of Valahia. Discover Peles Castle situated in picturesque Sinaia, and known as the Pearl of the Carpathians. Travel through the mountain scenery to Bran, where you will visit Bran Castle, commonly known as Dracula’s Castle. Learn the legend of the terrifying fictional Count.

    Move on to Brasov, located in the heart of Transylvania. Embark on a walking tour through the historical center. Encounter sights such as the Gothic church of Biserica Neagră, and the Medieval Catherine's Gate, the last remaining of the city’s defensive walls.

    This is was a wonderful tour and better than what I expected! We were picked up at 8 am by a Mercedes sprinter and greeted by Euguene, who was an excellent tour guide throughout. The journey to peles castle was about 2 hours but the views were on the way were enjoyable. We spent over 2 hours at Peles and and Eugene was very knowledgable about the place. Next, there was a short journey to Bran castle and this castle from the outside was stunning as were the views - breathtaking! Again, we had a personal tour of the castle while we were given free time to look around a Bran itself and have some food! Finally, another short trip to Brashov and a quick tour of the city centre which was very beautiful - this was rather short but I think it was enough! The journey back to Bucharest was 3 hours! Overall, this was excellent value for money and was an enjoyable day taking in some landmarks of Romania! Euguene and the driver were friendly, helpful and knowledge - they made this tour!
