I enjoyed the sights of the day trip, however it was a little bit rushed with a small group. I would still recommend it to others who only have a few days in Romania

For a Monday, I would recommend a full day tour of Bucharest, or a Half day tour of Bucharest + a Half Day tour around Bucharest or full day tour to Bran and Brasov. Peles castle is closed on Mondays.
