Well worth the effort

14 hours is a long day but Teo Tat made it interesting and enjoyable. Along with many interesting facts about Vlad Tepes, he told me a lot about the history of Romania and life under Communist rule. The day quickly and his experience and connections made.getting in and out of the main attractions easy. I had all the time I needed to see what I wanted to see, yet was able to maintain a schedule that got me.back to the hotel at a reasonable time. Highly recommend this tour to anyone with more than a casual interest in Vlad Dracul.
