What people are saying about Brasov

The schedule is very good, covering 3 beautiful locations. The driver was driving very sensible and Alex, the tour guide, was friendly, with a nice sense of humour and shared with us his valuable knowledge about the history of the places we visited. The vehicle was clean, new and comfortable. Don’t miss this tour when visiting Bucharest. It was the highlight of our trip.

The day was great! The schedule of the day is so well organized and the time is enough to visit all the castles and Brasov. Of course it wouldn’t be the same without Alex. He did a great job. He explained everything in such a nice way. I would totally recommend this day trip to everyone visited Romania for first time.

It was amazing!! We were with the best guide Rodica Canciu from GrayLine travels. She was so nice and explained so well the history of Bucharest and Transylvania. It was so interesting and the driver was the best! We had an amazing time with them I really recommend this trip. Thank you

Really nice experience. The guide was really nice and knew a lot, always checking with us and how we were doing. We could take our time for photos and to check details, there was no rush. I really enjoyed it.

It was exactly the right decision to include the tour in our weekend trip to Bucharest. Alex is a great guide! We were picked up from the hotel at 7:30 am and returned in the evening.
