Enjoy the convenience of being picked up from your hotel in Bucharest. As the sun sinks behind the mountains, you’ll set your eyes upon Bran Castle, one of the most uncanny residences in a land known for its bloodthirsty vampires and Gothic castles. Enter the chilling halls of Bran Castle and meet your vampire helper. Put on your cape and receive your lantern. Stir up some courage– many have visited the castle in the light of the day, but few have dared to explore it during the night. Marvel at the haunting decor of the castle. Learn about the castle's history from your knowledgable guide. Descend into a time tunnel that will transport you to the past into the old tea house of Maria, Queen of Romania.

What a wonderful tour! We met our awesome guide Gabriel at another hotel which was roughly a 10 minute walk from ours and then we were off! We first stopped at Peles Castle and it did not disappoint. Peles Castle is a beautiful Neo-Renaissance castle with a unique history. Next stop was for lunch a nice quaint restaurant which served traditional Romanian cuisine and spirits. After lunch we headed to Bran to see "Dracula's Castle." Bran Castle is small fortress with a lot of history. Our guide explained the truth regarding the myth/legend of Dracula and Vlad the Impaler. Finally we headed to the medieval city of Bravos. We spent roughly an hour learning about Bravos and checked out some attractions to include the market square, the Black Church, and an original gate to the walled city. Our guide Gabriel was very knowledgeable of the history of Romania and Transylvania region. Gabriel gave us neat trivia tidbits throughout the tour. Overall an excellent tour which I highly recommend!
Alex was definitely the best guide I have ever experienced. He and driver Michael were really professional duo. Alex is filled with rich historical knowledge. There was not a single dull moment. We were given enough time to roam around on our own. I can honestly say we had got more than we paid for. Thank you Alex and Michael for a great adventure.
Nice places to see, it seems a long day but totally worth the while. The lunch could be made shorter if there were options to preorder ahead, to save some time.
The Guide (Gabriel) was extremely knowledgeable and helped us cut the long lines with advance ticket. Lunch restaurant selection was fantastic
Guide fantastic, pick up right on time, communication amazing. During travel guide was telling stories about next place to see. Great trip!
