This was a small group minivan tour to Dracula's castle/Peles castle/Brasov. They went to Draculas castle first to avoid the crowds and this worked out well. The stop in Brasov was nice where we were able to have lunch at La Ceaun which served local dishes (very good!). Due to road construction we were delayed getting to Peles castle so it was getting close to closing time when we arrived. This worked out ok since the crowds had mostly left. Overall a good experience. There is no hotel pick-up so you need to get to the Hilton for departure. Tour guide was good.

Was a great trip and worth the time. Free time to do what you want and well organized. The tour guide was entertaining with his unique and corny sense of humor.

This was by far one of the best excursions I have ever booked. Even though I have seen many other castles around Europe that were much bigger and more extravagant then these two our tour guide Valantina made the journey so informative about the country, area and people of Romania that it was quite enjoyable. They spent the perfect amount of time at each site and did a great job of getting us around the traffic and road construction in the area. Another good booking on Viator

A very good and interesting day trip. The Peles castle is unique and the Brasov city very beautiful and cute. Our guide Stefania was amazing and gave all necessary info for the visiting places plus she made our trip very comfortable and enjoyable!

When in Romania this day excursion is a must! This tour took us on a mini-bus to Transylvania for a tour of Peles Castle and Bran Draculas Castle. We also had side tour of Brasov, a city in south Transylvania. it was well worth the trip and we were able to enjoy the nice scenic ride as well as have time to fly our drone and capture fantastic views of both castles. Personally, I thought there was more to see at the Peles Castle than Bran Castle but then what's the point of traveling to Transylvania if Dracula's castle is not on the menu? lol

Great trip. Our guide Serban was really fun and kept the energy up on a long day. Peles castle was the highlight. Bran's castle was cool from the outside but not that interesting inside. Brasov was lovely. The only negative was how busy the castles were but well worth visiting.

The tour operator covered both the castles but did not take us to Brasov as the guide mentioned it was snowing. Found the tour operator pushing back and wanting to conclude the trip by mentioning that its group decision while the guide was smartly making people agree to return back to bucharest. The guide also kept saying it may take around 7-8 hours to return back and pushing all the guests to agree for return back to base.

Excellent tour with two diverse castles, and an interesting town to explore. Peles castle is one of the most opulent I've ever seen. Bran castle, or Dracula's Castle should have been spookier, but still fascinating.

Great tour and our our guide very helpful and cheerfull.

Meeting place easy to locate, guides were there ahead of time, van was comfortable.
Valentine, our guide was knowledgeable and funny. He was informative and told us about history not only of castles and Translylvania, but of the whole Romania as well.Only cons that we were a bit rushed due to time.
