Full description

Discover some of Romania's most famous castles on a guided day trip from Bucharest. See Peles Castle and Bran Castle and take some free time to go on a stroll through the Old Town of Brasov. 

Following pickup from Bucharest by bus, leave the city for Sinaia. Relax on the drive to Peles Castle, the former residence of the kings of Romania. Here, admire furniture, ornamental objects, carpets, tapestries, sculptures, paintings and collections of weapons from the 15th to 19th centuries.

Continue to Bran with its famous Bran Castle, also known as Dracula's Castle. Learn about the castle's history and how it had a strategic mission due to its position on the border between Transylvania and Wallachia.

Spend free time in Brasov and admire the town's houses built in the Renaissance, Baroque, Provincial, and Neoclassical style. Explore the medieval fortress of Brasov, formerly one of Europe's most secure fortresses. See the preserved old wall, the Black and White Towers, and the Weaver's Bastion.

Learn about Catherine's Gate, situated near the Schei Gate in the western part of the fortress and its 4 little towers which symbolize the medieval right of life and death over the vassal's lives. Later, return to Bucharest for drop-off at your accommodation.

Amazing trip to Peles Palace, Bran Castle and Brasov. The tour guide Tudor was knowledgeable and helpful. Peles Palace was closed but it was still nice to appreciate from outside. The journey was comfortable in the bus although long hours. Overall this was a worthwhile day trip from Bucharest. Would recommend.

We received the email regarding pick up the night before, transport was right on time, our guide Vlad was very friendly and patient with explaining everything even multiple times. At Peles castle, there are 2 floors that can be toured separately at different price points. Pack food with you, especially for the end of the day, by the time we got to Brasov we were pretty hungry but there was not much available for the time that we had as restaurant (inc. KFC) had long wait times.

On-time pick-up at the meeting point. Comfortable journey on a 16-seater Mercedes Sprinter. Prepared and helpful guide speaks 3 languages fluently. Very nice Peles Castle guided tour. Free visit to Bran castle (unguided as stated in the description) was a disappointment. Free lunch in Brasov in a restaurant I recommend good. Punctual return to Bucharest
