Set off for Transylvania from Bucharest during this guided tour that includes round-trip transport and admission tickets to Bran Castle and Pele’s Castle. Along with both castle visits, you’ll enjoy a walking tour of Brasov before your guide sets you free in the medieval town to enjoy some independent time.
What to Expect

Rise and shine, and hop aboard a climate-controlled bus from your hotel, which will transport you from Bucharest to Transylvania. Famous for its romantic views, thick forests, and many medieval castles, this central Romanian region is beautifully atmospheric, and home to the legend of Count Dracula.

This tour is certain to please Bram Stoker fans looking to learn more about Romania’s most famous vampire, as Bran Castle—also known as Dracula’s Castle—is the first port of call. A 13th-century hilltop marvel, it’s one of Romania’s most popular (and macabre) landmarks. Peles Castle is also on the itinerary: the former summer residence of Romania’s royal family, it’s a Neo-Renaissance architectural masterwork.

Your day in Transylvania continues with a walking tour of the medieval town of Brasov. Look out for landmarks such as the Black Church and the city’s historic fortress walls, and enjoy some free time to scout out lunch, a coffee, and do some solo exploring. As the day winds down, hop back in the bus, which will drop you directly back at your hotel.

Hi, I am not sure about the hotel thing, you will need to ask them. in total you spend around 4 hours in the bus, but taking into account that this is a very long day, these 4 hours are really insignificant.
