    Good value and fun tour of the iconic castles of Romania!
    , Apr 2022
    Reasnoable price for a full day tour that involved long hours of drive across 3 different locations. Our guide, Matthew (not sure of spelling) was punctual, interactive and provided interesting information about the locations. There was sufficient time to explore and have some food, buy souvenirs etc.
    Not bad, not great

    The tour was okay. The sites are impressive, however, better logistics would had made the experience better. In the venues it was easier if you pay with cash. Instead of making a stop at an ATM the tour guide made use do a 30 mins line ( which apparently could had been 1 1/2 hours on a busy day) to get our tickets.
    Must see

    Great experience Brasov!

    The Peles castle is beautiful and I really enjoyed wandering around in Brasov. Beautiful city to visit. Pelas castle is a real museum
    Awesome guide and tour

    I really recommend this tour, Peles castle and Brasov are something special. Lot of history behind these. Must see!
    Dont do it!

    The tour guide was terrible. He was driving like a maniac. I felt sick the whole tour because of his driving my friend had the same experience. we were scared. Also he was very pushy on his comments that we had to give him good review, and tips...also he was constantly changing the times of meeting point and he was simply very annoying person in general. I would never take a tour with this guy again. On the pros the places you visit are nice, amd worth to see. All i think is that the company should talk to this guy so that he changes his attitude. I would not repeat this tour at all.

    Hello, Thanks for your feedback. We had a long and detailed discussion with the guide as we do not tolerate this kind of behavior among our guides. Unfortunately, he seemed to have a bad day, and we apologize for the less-than-ideal experience you had. Nice to hear you have enjoyed the places and the landscapes along the mountain roads. Hope to see you again sometime! All the best from Bucharest!
    Nice tour to 3 main...
    , Jan 2022
    Nice tour to 3 main places outside Bucharest. Comfortable ride with a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. Since the tour includes 3 places and the distance from Bucharest is long, there was an expected haste - to be able to see everything. This slightly undermined the experience for me. If you like to take your time in absorbing the history and beaty of each place, I'd recommend to visit no more that 1 or 2 places in a day (instead of all 3).
