Our guide Dan did an exellent job! He was very helpful and answered all our questions. The driver did also a good job, drove us calm and safely. The landscape of Transsylvania is beautiful and up in the mountains we passed some lovely villages. Bran castle in itself is really overestimated! It does not have anything to do with Dracula. Peleş castle is more interesting . Both castles are crowded with people. The city of Brasov is very nice, we stoped there for lunch. Inga-Maj

Very nice trip. Firstly, I would like to travel by train. But the public transport is not convenient, it is impossible to visite these three places in one day (maybe but difficult). The guide and driver are very nice and professional. The Peles castle is interesting, and Brasov is a beautiful city. The Bran castle is not recommended. If you visite by yourself, The bran castle is not necessary. If you don’t want to waste time, this trip is the best.

The guide kept us informed and was very knowledgable on the way to the castles, pointing out all the sights and the history / culture. I was really looked after when I became travel sick so thank you so much Mattia. I felt this trip was well organised and would recommend
