This is a brilliant tour option for anyone who wants to get the most out of a day in Transylvania from Bucharest! We started the day at 7 and had a full day of activities across the sanctuary, castle and Brasov. We had the most amazing tour guide in Dan who was so friendly and answered all of our questions and told us everything we needed to know about the area! Dan truly is an asset to the company and made us feel so at home with him. Nicolas was also great, calling us shortly after our booking to give us all the extra details of the day ahead. Really fantastic day and couldn’t have asked for anything more. Dan even gave us great recommendations on food to eat and and places to visit in Bucharest for the rest of our trip! Thank you for a great tour and we would highly recommend to anyone!! No other tour options like this in the area.

Dan was an awesome host. His knowledge is broad and his English is excellent. We learned so much. The car was clean and comfortable. We wanted to spend less time I’m the car and more on history, which is exactly what happened. We visited Snagov Monastery where Vlad is allegedly buried and then Mogosoaia Palace, with a beautiful landscape gardens, art exhibit and live music. Then we also wanted a more authentic experience back in the city so we went to the Herastru Lake for a short ride around the lake and then a cold beer md Romanian sausages at the beer hall Bereria H. I would highly recommend this tour and tour company in the future.

Daniel was a great tour guide. I took a solo tour and he helped me in skipping ahead of the line on a very busy day at Castle Bran. I usually don’t take tours when visiting new areas but I’m glad I booked with this touring agency as it was fun and filled with knowledge. It was totally worth it!

Nicolas was a fantastic host, very knowledgable and nothing was too much trouble for him. Would highly recommend.

Really enjoyed the tour- very informative and entertaining
