In the morning you will start your journey towards the Fagaras Mountains, some of the most massive and beautiful mountains in Romania, also named the Transylvanian Alps.

Next you will make a stop at the foot of the Poenari Citadel, a stronghold that became famous thanks to Dracula's Legend. From here you will be taken to Romania's most beautiful road, named by Top Gear "the best road in the world", the Transfagarasan, the second-highest road in Romania.

Absolutely fantastic all round experience!

One of the best tours we have ever been on. Everything ran smoothly and we had a fantastic guide who was very informative, and friendly. The driver was also very helpful and would stop whenever we wanted photos. Overall we seen some breathtaking views, tasted quality local food and would recommend booking this tour 100%.

Excellent beautiful views

We had a fantastic guide who was very friendly and was happy to stop where we wanted. We had asked to be dropped at the airport after and he did so in ample time which was great. The road is absolutely stunning with so much to see and I really recommend anyone that does it! We did it yesterday (15th August 2016) for my husbands birthday and he had such a great day. We had an amazing lunch at the restaurant by the lake. I thoroughly recommend this too! I really hope if you do it you get the driver we did he was lovely!!
