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.
