What to expect
  • In the early morning, board a private vehicle at your Bucharest hotel and discuss the day’s itinerary with your personal guide. Admire dramatic mountain scenery as you travel through the Carpathian Mountains towards Peles Castle, a Neo-Renaissance gem commissioned by Carol I, Romania’s first king. Take a guided tour of the monument, whose every room is adorned with gorgeous upholstery, antique furniture, and classic art. Then, proceed through more beautiful scenery to Bran Castle (Dracula’s Castle), arguably Transylvania’s most popular attraction. As you explore the Gothic castle, listen to legends of Vlad the Impaler, a legendary Romanian ruler who inspired Bram Stoker to write his seminal masterpiece, Dracula. Your next stop is Rasnov Fortress; a 13th-century medieval stronghold perched on a mountain summit. Absorb stunning views of the surrounding scenery and discover the origin of the site before continuing to Brasov, a Gothic city home to historic monuments. During a walking tour of Brasov, you’ll see highlights such as the Black Church, one of Europe’s largest Gothic cathedrals, and Council Square. Following your Brasov tour, you’ll return to your Bucharest hotel.

A must-do tour!
Oct 2019 • Solo
Shared Group Tour with tour guide Mr. Sorin. Mr. Sorin is very professional. He drives the van that carries 6 tourists carefully and has extensive knowledge of the history of the places we visited. His English is very good. The places we went to are beautifully unforgettable. The tour is ideal for friends, family and even solo. You will learn more about Romania, its rulers and royalty. Of course, you will know more about the real Dracula.

Aug 2019 • Couples
Our guide Alin was awesome! He not only was knowledgeable of the history of all the places we visited, he was also personable and hilarious. We dealt with a long weekend official holiday traffic and he was able to get us there in a timely manner giving us a view of the beautiful countryside at the same time(others took 3-4x the time to get there), provided us with VIP style tours without the wait(some lines were crazy long), provided fast WiFi, recommended great local restaurant with local cuisine at an affordable price, and entertained us during the drive. We couldn’t have had a better tour guide. The whole day was unforgettable. We made a friend for life!

Amazing and enjoyable trip to 3 Castles!
Jun 2019 • Friends
I recommend others to sign up to this package because it is well organised and fun for such small but close group. We made friends with each other easily and have good laughter and stories to share with each other. The tour guide, Alin is hospitable, caring and take care each and every one of us. He even recommended good food to us at Bran Castle! Peles Castle is beautiful and a must visit. Bran Castle shows the difference between the myth and the history and good old town Brasov is scenic with lovely eateries and sight-seeing places.

Most awesome tour ever!
Jan 2018 • Friends
Although still travelling and can't (due to time) put into how much this trip was enjoyed by all members of our party!.... Chris was an exceptional host, from sharing stories straight from his heart about growing up in Romania, to all sorts of interesting and informative commentary!... we asked to take some lunch in a local restaurant to experience the food that Romanians eat, and we sure were pleased! (ps Romanian Rose wine is amazing!).

I without a doubt recommend a day or longer with Chris and the Eastern European Experience company! Thank you Chris!
