Wonderful day with excellent guide/driver.
We took the 3 Castles trip with Valentin, and had a great day. We are both limited in our mobility, and he was patience personified. He also was a good driver, and a fund of information about the places we visited.We would recommend him to anyone.

Excellent Tour, Definitely Prefer the Private Option
We found this to be a a highly informative tour with our tour guide, Dan. He was right on time to pick us up at our hotel. With the private option, we proceeded at our own pace. We skipped the lines at Peles and Bran, and enjoyed the extended (first floor) visit at Peles. It's a long day (8:30 to 6) but worth it. Dan made it special.

Had a lot of potential
I couldn't decide between giving this tour 3 or 4 stars, because where it fell down wasn't necessarily the fault of the tour guide but it wasn't handled very well. Basically, Peles Palace was very well done, good tour with excellent knowledge and very engaging. The issue happened between Peles and Bran. We had bad traffic which cut into the time but then also we stopped for lunch (the tour guide and assistant ordered pudding when no one else did, so we got drinks to fill the time of them eating, spending more money than we needed to) then there was a lot of queuing for the castle. The result of this was an incredible rushed tour of Dracula's castle which was a shame as I had been most looking forward to this section of the day. I felt unable to properly appreciate the rooms or read the information plaques as there was a need to move quickly- as a result I missed things which I would have liked to have seen. We were told our tickets included all areas but there was no talk of going into the exhibit of medieval torture weapons or the dungeons level- either our tickets didn't include this, which I would have liked to have the opportunity to add to my ticket as a similar offer was made at Peles, or it was and we were denied this chance due to timings- denying us access to an area we had paid to see. I appreciate that this was done by the tour guide to get us to the fortress before it closed but as I had booked this tour largely for Bran Castle, I was left disappointed. I think perhaps this could have been avoided with the restaurant at lunch- this took up a large chunk of time (especially the need to wait for the tour guide's pudding) and it was implied that it was a part of the day as we were ushered in to this one restaurant- HOWEVER, it wasn't as we all paid for ourselves- which is a shame because a quick snack from the food stalls in the local market at the base of Bran Castle would have sufficed and saved us time! Yet, this wasn't offered as an option- of which we should have been made aware. The fortress was very cool with stunning views so I was very glad to make it in time to see. The tour guide did then show us some additional sights such as a look at the main ski resort of Brasov and a stunning view point. It was a little disconcerting to hear the guide say he didn't enjoy the tours and it was just a job to him, not a passion. So, a mix really because the sites were worth it but the logistics and the tour guide (who spoke to my chest every time I asked a question) were far from desirable.

Watching real wild bears in Brasov
It was a dream come true for me, to quietly watch and respect wildlife where they belong, free and safe away from urban areas, no more captive bears!!

Day hike in Carpathian Mountains
Our guide, Sorin, was very helpful and offered to pick us up from our hotel even though we hadn't booked a private tour. He didn't rush the tour and was very flexible with the content and his time.

Three Castle Tour
If you’re looking for a Transylvania tour in english, this is the only company you should go through. You may find other companies that advertise as cheaper, but they’re nothing more than an drop off service. Christian was an excellent guide. We paid our agreed upon fee, and he took care of the rest. Tickets, Transportation, and a local history was all provided for us. We had a group of 11, so Christian accommodated us a van to fit everyone. The entire day was filled amazing sights and Christian supplemented the sights with several fun facts and a brief history of what we were looking at. I’d recommend this tour and this tour guide to anyone. It was an incredible experience that was worth every penny!

Private Day Hike- Fagaras Mountain
Our guide for the day was very flexible and made our day a great adventure. The Transfagarasan drive was pleasant and we were able to stop and take pictures. Once at Balea Lake we headed up the mountain at a pleasant pace admiring the views while progressing upwards. Our guide was very experienced and made sure we were enjoying the hike at a pleasant and appropriate pace. The views were amazing and the hike was a very enjoyable way to see the Transfagarasan and Balea Lake area. Special thanks for the last minute tour changes.

Really unique experience!
We went on this hike with Gabriel. He was a really enthusiastic, experienced and passionate guide who knew a lot about the Romanian wildlife and flora and fauna. He had a great sense of humour and tailored the experience based on our abilities. He took us on a detour into the canyon and gave us good tips throughout the hike. This was a really unique experience as a visitor and I’d really recommend to anyone who enjoys the outdoors!

Amazing service and value for money
Used this company for 2 private tours. Guides arrived on time and were really informative. Gabriel took us on the 3 castle tour, peles, bran and rasnov. As I gave a fascination with churches he even walked us to a church near peles which was amazing. Gabriel was informative friendly and did not rush us and gave plenty of time to take in the sights and pictures. Peles was beautiful and we had the option to park at the bottom and walk up which I would recommend as the view of the castle was breath taking. We joined a tour here but gabriel was always on hand to answer any questions. Next on to bran which was also good loved all the street vendors outside. Next to rasnov and as I didn't want to walk up the hill we took the tractor which was fine. We also used them for bear sanctuary which if being honest was probably not necessary but guide was fun, informative and always on hand to answer questions. If you are staying in Brasov I would definitely recommend this company

We had a great day touring the castles. Pick up was on time by the very informative guide Gabriel. Nothing was to much trouble for Gabriel we even managed to squeeze in a church visit on our travels. This was a great choice of company to do all our tours with. Highly recommend them.

A great day tour of Bran Castle, Rasnov Fortress and Peles Palace
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Bran Castle, Rasnov Fortress and Peles Palace, made all the better for the excellent approach taken by our guide, Alex Mitu. Aside from sharing his wide knowledge of these three sites and of Romanian history in general, we really appreciated Alex's views on a variety of subjects. He is an excellent communicator and his willingness to share and discuss ideas made for a most informative and enjoyable day.

Castles and Vampires and Bears, Oh My!
Wonderful day trip in Brasov. We were picked up at our lodging and driven to Bran Castle for an excellent tour. Learned a lot about Vlad the Impaler, Dracula and Transylvania. Then we rendezvoused with another driver who took us to see the wild bears. We took short trek to a cabin where we watched 11 bears (2 moms had 3 cubs) for about an hour and a half. We had an armed ranger with us, just in case. It was a great day. The best part was the flexibility of Active Holidays Tours. We had scheduled our tour for a specific date but due to an unexpected problem had to reschedule for the following day and they took care of everything seamlessly. Communication was quick. We were happy with this experience in every way and strongly recommend this tour and this company!!
