Amazing Transylvania
, Jun 2021
Had a day trip tour with Bogdan back on 6th June 2021. It was a great trip overall, we visited all the expected places and we had enough time for picture and enjoying the places. Our guide is very informative and gentle, glad to have him as our guide for the day. Great job Bog 👍🏼
Brilliant day!

We had a lovely day on their tour, Paul was very friendly and helpful. Peles Palace and Bran Castle were beautiful and we had a walk around the lovely city of Brasov afterward. We liked the way Paul had a lot of knowledge and explained the history of the buildings and of Transylvania in much detail. There was just us and another couple in our group so we had much more contact with the tour guide which was great. Pickup and drop off instructions were clearly communicated which was also great. Lovely day, would throughly recommend!

Great day trip!

We had a great time on the tour with Bogdan! The castles on the tour were unfortunately closed due to COVID-19 but Bogdan was still able to give us a full experience with lots of anecdotes about the castles and Romanian history. This tour is a great way to see some more of Romania if you are staying in Bucharest.
Marius is the best!

Marius was a fantastic guide! Unfortunately the castles were closed due to coronavirus but he still made sure we had a great day and told us as much as he could about the castles and showed us pictures. It was lovely having extra time in Brasov and I would really recommend this trip!

A tick off the bucket list
, Mar 2020
A very early start to the day but worth it. The tour was a brilliant way of leaving the hustle and bustle, and traffic, of Bucharest behind and seeing another side of România. We were a bit late leaving the city so we had to do the tour in a different way. Starting at Peles Castle and ending with Brann. Peles Castle was simply stunning. The castle itself with backdrop of the Carpathian mountain was beautiful. Our tour guide Marius was very knowledgeable and gave a superb tour through the castle and pointed out many details and facts, a very informative tour. We then went over the mountain to Brasov, and the snow started to fall. After a brief talk about the black church and the history of Brasov square and buildings we stopped for lunch. Marius recommended a traditional Romanian restaurant on the square and the food was very tasty and reasonably priced. We then made the 30 minute drive to Brann Castle. The castle came out of the snow and was very picturesque. The castle again was very interesting. It was a bit of a tight squeeze in places( I’m 6ft 2) but was well worth the visit. The tour is a must for anyone who enjoys history and wants to experience another side of Romania. Marius was a fantastic tour guide and if you’re lucky enough to get him you’ll be in for a good day.
