Really beats another bus!
This is the way to go! Much better than another bus ride for a number of reasons including being able to customize your tour and stop or go when you want. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable and made it a great tour.

A very special day in a beautiful area of Romania spent with an awesome guide Christian!
Aug 2021
This day trip was a wonderful end to a week long river cruise! The tours of the castles were excellent beyond our expectations! We could not have asked for a better guide! Christian was friendly, very informative as to the history of the area and so accommodating to whatever we needed. We followed his recommendations for lunch and it was fabulous! We now feel like we have a friend in Romania!

Day tour of Transylvania Castles 👍🏻
Sep 2021 • Friends
Beautiful day tour of Castles of Transylvania with an excellent guide, Cristi. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, plus he was able to save us time waiting in lines since he has a guide pass. So worth it to hire him rather than renting a car and trying to figure out where to go ourselves.

Recommended trip for families with kids
Aug 2021 • Family
This trip was great, in one day we got to see two of the most famous and rich castles in Romania and then got the chance to relax with the kids in the amazing brasov square which is an amazing place to be. We were traveling with a 9 year old boy and 5 year old girl and it was very appropriate for them. We have to acknowledge though that a big part of how amazing the trip was is our tour guide Claudio, he was amazing with the kids, very patient and flexible as well as knowledgeable and informative.
A highly recommended trip.

Great Day
Jan 2020
Gabriel was our guide and drove us on the day seeing both Bran and Peles castles. He was on time collecting us from our hotel and drove us safely to the castles. On the way we stopped off at a lovely restaurant that he recommended for lunch. He was a great guide, there with us all the time to answer any questions we had and take photos of our group. Even though we were over our time schedule with Gabriel, he even took us to the town where the Black Church was, so that we could see it. We had a great day, thank you Gabriel.

Very nice daytrip!
Mar 2020 • Friends
We were a group of three and booked the privat daytrip to the transalvanian castles (Bran & Peles) to get a good first impression of what Romania is while a short trip to Bucharest.

The tour was great! Gaby picked us up early at the hotel and drove with us to Peles where we got a very informative and impressive privat tour through the castle. After that, on the way to Bran’s castle we had a traditional lunch in a restaurant Gaby recomment and ist was great. Bran was also nice but - for me - Peles was even more awesome.
Then, after a short but nice stop in Brasov, a beautiful old town with many German influences Gaby drove us back to Bucharest.
While the whole trip Gaby was a perfectly great guide who entertains us with a lot of interessting Information and fun in a perfect English and also answered all of our questions. If I stay in Bucharest for another time, I will definetly book a tour guided by Gaby again.

Castle day tour
Feb 2020
Great private tour! We had limited time due to a flight in the evening and were able to see both Brun and Pelles castles in addition to the monastery near Pelles. Gabby was great at keeping us on track to make a 7pm flight home.He provided a great deal of history and knowledge. I highly recommend the private tour. It is perfect for seeing the most spectacular sites in Romania!

Great Tour Awesome Guide
Nov 2019
Our guide and driver, Gabriel, made all the difference and is what made the tour great. We were two adults and the company sent us a message the day before to confirm pick up times and location. Gabriel arrived early and picked us up from our hotel. First we visited Peles Castle and Gabriel was very knowledgeable and able to answer all of our questions. He is a fantastic English speaker. Next he helped us pick out a traditional place for a quick lunch before we headed over to Bran's Castle. Although interesting, I think that Peles Castle was more engaging, although less famous. Finally, we had an opportunity to explore Brasov, which was super charming. The Old Town is idyllic. Gabriel then drove us back to our hotel. It was a long day but Gabriel made it interesting and go by quickly in the best possible way. Hire this man if you can.
