The guide and the driver are super nice and fun, the trip is well organized and travel is comfortable. Peleș is gorgeous and is recommended to take the extended tour. Bran is more touristic and not so impressive after seeing Peleș. Brașov is a very beautiful and quaint town. The only thing that I did not like is that we were somehow rushed. Due to the traffic situation they were rushing to get back to Bucharest in time. It is understandable, but in this case I would suggest to just skip Bran and have more time in Peleș and Brașov. This would also allow more time to give more context and information during the guided tours in Peleș and Brașov. All in all it's a well worth experience and great value for the money.

This was a very good trip. It was a long day but most of if is travelling. The tour guide (Serban) was amazing. He gave us lots of history and was very knowledgeable but also very funny. He answered all our questions and gave a great overview of each place. Peles Castle is stunning and it's recommended to take the extended tour. Its only an extra 50lei but worth it. Bran Castle is not a pretty but has a gruesome history worth knowing about. Brasov is a lovely old town with some beautiful buildings. The tour isn't necessary here but you do get a bit of free time after so its up to you. Take extra lei and enjoy the markets around the castle or maybe get a slice of pizza.

Experiência incrível e inesquecível! Guia e motorista muito simpáticos e alto astral! Começamos a viagem 07h45 e tivemos em média: 1h30 no castelo Peles, 1h00 no castelo de Bran, chegamos para almoçar em Brasov às 15h00 e ficamos lá 2h00 (infelizmente não tínhamos tempo suficiente para conhecer a parte alta da cidade, que aparentemente é incrível)! Chegamos de volta em Bucuresti às 21h15 no centro da cidade.. Super recomendo!
