Overview

Designed to delight those fascinated by the Gothic legends of Transylvania, this 4-hour tour takes you to the heart of the mysterious Romanian region. After hotel pickup in Brasov, tick off top attractions such as the dramatic Rasnov Fortress and Bran’s Castle, whose Gothic turrets and hilltop perch have earned it the nickname of ‘Dracula’s Castle’. Upgrade your small-group tour, limited to only eight people, to include a visit to Peles Castle, a striking example of Neo-Renaissance architecture.

What to Expect

After pickup at your Brasov hotel, greet your guide and board a car or minivan destined for the dramatic ruins of Rasnov Fortress. Built in the 13th century, the striking backdrop of the Bucegi Mountains enhances the beauty of the fortress.

Listen to history-rich commentary featuring tales of medieval warfare and local legend, and opt to enjoy lunch in Rasnov village at your own expense. Then, proceed to Bran Castle, arguably the crowing architectural feature of Transylvania.

The Gothic castle, complete with high stonewalls and rust-red turrets, was used to incarcerate Vlad the Impaler and therefore inspired the creation of Bram Stoker’s bloodthirsty villain, Dracula. Pay the entrance fee at your own expense and then wander through chambers with filled antique furniture and Gothic embellishments.

After enriching your knowledge of Vlad the Impaler’s gruesome legacy, return to your Brasov hotel and bid your guide farewell. Alternatively, if you’ve opted to upgrade, continue to Peles Castle. You can decide to upgrade on the day of your tour and simply pay in cash.

Follow your guide through immaculately preserved rooms, decorated with luxurious furniture for the viewing pleasure of Romania’s royal family. Choose to pay an additional visit to the neighboring Pelisor Castle and then conclude your tour with drop-off at your Brasov hotel.

Great trip! Definitely opt for Peles Castle option.

Alex was a great guide, extremely knowledgeable about the area, castles, and common myths. Myself and my girlfriend thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Peles castle is a must! We would both highly recommend this tour.

Excellent tour guide with historical insight

Enjoyed a great day tour with Dan Negoescu. He picked my family up in a clean modern car, spoke excellent English, incorporated interesting stories with the tour and knew the ways to quickly get into each site. Highly recommend working with Dan.

Fantastic tour witg Tudor

I had a great day with Tudor, visiting the castles and Ransov Fortress. Tudor was very punctual and shared so much knowledge of the area with me. He really knew his subject matter. Tudor went above and beyond when a road was closed for repair...More

Excellent tour & guide

Dan Negoescu was an excellent guide. His English was excellent and his knowledge of every aspect of the history of the places visited was encyclopaedic. On top of that he was a thoroughly nice man who made us feel very welcome and well looked after.
