I am so impressed and grateful to have gone on this tour with Mihai. It was a beautiful day, we had no traffic and it was absolutely gorgeous. The best part was all of the information and great conversation with Mihai. I really got to understand who King Carol was, what Brasov was about and appreciated Queen Maria and her stay at Bran even more than the story of Dracula. It was beyond my expectations and I learned so much about Romania, Transylvania and the history. It is such a beautiful country and it matters so much to go with someone who is both knowledgeable and looks out for their guests l. I honestly cannot thank or recommend this tour enough. Mihai even took his time to give me a full itinerary for a free day I had and I am so glad I took his suggestions. I got to see and dine in amazing hidden gems.

Did a great day trip to Peles Palace, Bran Castle and Brasov. Mihai explained everything very well, knew many amazing photos spots to get the best shots from, and did his best to make sure the trip was wonderful. He is a very interesting person to tour with and we had a lot of great conversations on the road. I’m looking forward to going back to Romania again. Will definitely book with Mihai whenever I do go back.

Visited late September 2018 but just found that my original review wasn't listed on the Viator site I booked it through.
This was a brilliant tour from start to finish.
Mihai was our guide. He was brilliant. His knowledge of Romania is amazing.
We were picked up on time. We visited Peles Palas, Bran Castle and then Brasov.
I can highly recommend this tour. I'd do it again without any hesitation.

Thank you Ian for this review! It's a shame that your first review on Viator never got through (since they are also part of TripAdvisor) but the good thing is that at least here reviews seem to work fine. It's fantastic that you took the time to rewrite this review, after such a long time. I'm happy that I had the chance to be your guide and that we still keep in touch. Best regards to you and your family and when I'll come to Wales it would be great if we can meet for a coffee.
