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.

Great tour

Brawn castle, aka Dracula castle, is a must for any visit to Transylvania.lots of fun and impressive fortress and history. Peles royal palace, was very ornate and large. We did the 1st floor included tour but paid for the optional 2nd floor tour and photo . To make sure we could see the bed chamber and few more rooms. Palace is very big, 160 rooms, but with both tours we saw maybe 25 rooms, which was enough. Tour guide for the palace did a good job telling us about each room and also moved along well. Rasov fortress was fun to explore and learn more about the ottoman history. WE don't have kids so skipped the dinosaur park stop. Enjoyed the black church visit and had a good meal in brow of. Highly recommend the tour. Great guide, Rassum.

This is an outstanding tour. The castles are incredible. Our guide, Teo, was very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour. It was well worth it to be able to skip the lines, which were extremely long. Lunch in Brashov was outstanding and our guide was extremely accommodating. He asked questions and made suggestions to tailor the trip to our preferences.
