Great day with a fabulous guide
Jun 2019 • Couples
Florin is an amazing guide of this region. He made our short stay in Brasov a special one, with a Sunday trip to Peles Castle, the George Enescu House, and a monastery.. Per his suggestion, we left for the tour early in the morning to beat the crowds in the castle and the traffic on the way there.This was a very good idea as the castle was very busy by the time we had completed our tour there. Florin very expertly related the history or Romania.from ancient times, through the middle ages, into the emergence of the nation, both world wars, the communist era, the Ceausescu period, and recent times. We very much enjoyed Florin's company during our day with him. He is polite and kind and clearly cares that his customers have an enjoyable experience.

Unique tour! Beautiful scenery and castles! Great Guide!
Apr 2019 • Solo
Florin picked me up in his car at 8.30am from my hotel in Brasov. He had a big map and showed the plan for the day. It is a private tour, so you can be flexible too, which is great. Safe driver with great conversation. I learnt a lot about Romania.
First stop was the Caraiman Monastery. Beautiful at the foot of the mountains. We saw both the wooden church, the sacred tree and the inside of the colourful orthodox cathedral and also checked out the animals there. Very cool seeing the rabbits, swans, horses, birds etc. Then we carried onto the George Enescu house. Entry is approximately 15 RON (EUR 3) with an audio guide. This is a wonderful place to see. Great information and the original piano is in the house.
Next was onto Pelisor and Peles castle, we had about 3hours in total for both. You need this much time for them!! They are amazing! The highlight of the tour. Pelisor is the smaller castle, entry 20RON (4 EUR). You need to buy a ticket to take photos (I was lucky and the lady let me take them with my iphone for free). I spent 1hour in here. The heart of Queen Marie of Romania is in the golden room!
Next was Peles castle, right next door. Entry is 60RON (EUR12.60) for upstairs and downstairs and photo pass is 35 RON (EUR7.35) and more if you want to video too. There are toilets there. Make sure you go before and after. You visit with a guided tour, which is huge. Took 1-1h 15min for the double tour. Make sure you visit both up and downstairs. I couldn't believe the amount of people who only bought tickets for half the castle! You came all the way to Romania to see half the castle. The upstairs section is lovely! The tour guide from the castle is very quick and it's difficult to hear them all the time because of the big groups, so make sure you go up the front or at the back to get photos. The outside is lovely to walk around too. I had a coffee and a slice of pizza at the cafe on my way back to the car. There are lots of shops around too. Florin waited for me during this time.
Next stop was 1400m up where the ski field is. So many cute stray dogs around. Bring dog food to feed them if you get a chance. Colder up her but not too bad in April. You can take the cable car up to 2000m if you want to, however, the weather turned when I was there. Florin said I could take the cable car down and he will drive to pick me up. So I paid 20 RON and took the ride down, it was a nice way to see the view. Then we headed back to Brasov and he dropped me back at my hotel. It was a lovely day! There isn't any time for lunch, so make sure you bring food or quickly buy a slice of pizza at the cafe and bring water and snacks as well. Lovely the day!! Great guide and very personal. I like this tour because it is different to any other tour you book, most other tours all go to the same place at the same time or they only have 1hour at peles castle (which is crazy!). Highly recommended! Thanks Florin! I will be back next time to organise a tour!

Excellent introduction to our stay in Romania.
Sep 2018 • Couples
We had a terrific day with Florin. We enjoyed his company and his knowledge of the places we visited. The ride on the Sinaia Gondola was an unexpected bonus. Florin collected us from the train station and dropped us off at our accommodation in Brasov. Thanks again, Florin, for the lovely day; it was one of the highlights of our visit.(In retrospect, we should also thank him for being such a good driver; something that can not be said about a lot of his compatriots!)

Great day tour to see the "real" Carpathian mountains!
We had a great day out with Florin as our guide. We initially picked this tour as we wanted to see Peles Castle, but the highlight of the trip was the journey to the top of the mountain where we parked and then walked a short distance up to catch the ski lift to the very top. The ski lift and the view from it was amazing. You do have to have a head for heights as it is not the faint hearted but it is totally worth it to get to the top!
Peles castle was also a wonder to see and very resplendent, as you would probably expect a Royal castle to be, but the location in the mountains is very fairy tale!

Florin was a great tour guide and explained everything to us with the right amount of detail. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the mountains and see Peles castle as well.

We also saw the monastery and George Escues residence but the highlights were definitely the castle and mountain scenery!

Book Florin Early - He's In Demand!
Oct 2017 • Couples
We were hoping to tour with Florin for a few days, but we waited too long to book. We were only able to do 1 day with him, but it was a great day tailored to our likes and wishes. He is knowledgeable, fun to be with, has reasonable rates and even introduced us to Langos, an unexpected delight! The only regret was not having another day (or 2) with him as there is do much to do and see in the area.
