A great tour filled with factual info and a very kind, knowledgeable guide(Vlad).
Nov 2019 • Couples
Órlaith (my partner) and I booked this tour last minute at 7pm the night befor and were accomadated with out any hasstle. We got collected at our apartment and were the only 2 people on the tour.

Our guide (Vlad) was 10 minutes early to collect us and was very welcoming. We got a run down of the day and were encouraged to ask questions.

Vlads knowledge was incredible and alot more acurate then info we had heard on the walking tours.

We were learning about Romanin history from the minute we got in the taxi. This was different then other tours we took that involved mostly silence between tourist sites.

We got private guided tours by Vlad around the castles and his insights were very factual and relatable.

The pelese castle is beautiful and well worth spending time there. Brann castle has alot less charm.

It was great to hear the parts that were created to enhance the expeirece but were not actually true to the time (like in Bran castle none of the contents are original).

We got great advice for food and got to talk about modern day Romania, economic issues and compare issues in Ireland with Bucarest. Vlad seemed happy to do what was needed to make sure we got the complete experience and we certinly got that.

The tour guide is 5*****

Peles is 5*****
Thanks for a great trip.

Dracula Caslte something really to get your teeth into
going in winter time with few tourists around and snow surrounding the castle gave it slightly scary atmosphere
