Great tour. Not too long in the car, and Emmanuel knew all the right times and right places to be to avoid long lines and crowds. Highly recommend this trip if you’re in Bucharest for more than 2 days…it’s nice to get out of the city and see the beautiful country side.

Long Day in a lot of traffic but worth it

A long day but you get to see other parts of Romania. The main selling point of the tour is Dracula castle but the time is so limited here that there was no time to try and take photos on the outside. Long queues to walk around inside and then had to get back to the bus. The trip back was long and slow due to the horrendous queues of traffic that are normal. Stuck in a single line of trafic for miles. These are the down sides to going on a trip to Transalvanya so if you're prepared for that then worth you time. Communication from the company was good, gave precise location for pick up, phone call from the driver/guide to let you know they were there. Small van but enough room for all and as a small group able to keep it close and personal for guided talks.

Great job by Alex! Bring 50 Lei cash per person for Peles, and expect to pay for Bran castle online, but that website was kind of show.

Lovely sites but you are in a car all day, and the vehicle they provide is far too small for such a day of traveling. Price is decent but you will also still pay additional for all sites.

Dear Megan, Thank you for your review. We take into consideration all reviews in order to improve all of our services. We use only brand new minivans (2022) as mentioned in other reviews by our guests and they are designed to have more legroom than a standard sedan or a coach/bus. Additional payment for entrance fees is stated on description of our trip. We are balancing the time spent at each location and we are managing to get more time at the locations than in the minivan, even with heavy traffic during holiday season. Unlike other companies that provide the same trip with coach/small bus (30 seats) we manage to finish this trip in 11-12 hours compared to 14-15 hours with the bus and offer more time at the locations this being the reason why we provide the trip with a maximum of 8 guests. We wish you safe travels!

Fun Historical day trip to get out of the City. Beautiful castles/stops

Such a great Trip! our tour group was 6 (3 x 2s) so not too big. our tour guide Ovi picked us up really close to the hotel in Old Town Bucharest and was a brilliant guide the whole day. Gave us a full course in Romanian History, and was very knowledgeable with facts and stories about all the different castles and stops on the visit. It made the day very fun and social. Small detail, but his English was perfect as well. We were in Bucharest but would highly recommend doing this day trip for anyone staying in the city. great way to spend a full day and completely different to the Eastern Block communist history of Bucharest!

Thank you to Andrei for an excellent tour of Peles Castle, Brasov, the Black Church and walking tour of Brasov, and Draculas Castle! We greatly appreciate Andrei’s outstanding organizing, driving, and information through out the day. Andrei is an excellent tour guide and driver! He was so helpful and pleasant all day long and was always going above and beyond to make sure our experience was the best! Our tour exceeded our expectations thanks to Andrei! The one day tour is a great way to enjoy Transylvania and the Carpathian Mountains. It is a long day but definitely worth it especially with our outstanding tour guide Andrei! Thanks for everything Andrei! Ann Marie, Bud and Jacqueline
