Overview

Venture deep into the heart of Transylvania to visit two of Romania’s most magnificent castles and the medieval town of Brasov on this day trip. Step into the life of Romanian royalty at sumptuous Peles Castle, a fairytale-like summer retreat surrounded by forest and still adorned with immaculate period decor. Then, connect with the country's notorious vampiric lore at Bran Castle, also known as ‘Dracula’s Castle,’ thanks to its chilling Gothic chambers and turrets that seem to be plucked straight from a horror movie.
  • Visit two of Romania's most famous castles in one day
  • Admire historic artwork, armor, and tapestries at beautiful Peles castle, a former royal retreat
  • Get spooked at Gothic Bran Castle, nicknamed 'Dracula's Castle'
  • Take a walking tour around the old town of medieval Brasov

Peles, Bran and taste of Brasov
Marcin_K
, May 2022
All 3 points of the trip are worth to see. Peles has amazing interiors and guided advice very useful. Bran visited without the guide and Brasov too. In Brasov quick hour to walk around and come back to Bucarest. Brasov definitely worth of staying much longer

It was an intense day trip in terms of driving hours (approximately 6 hours back and forth) but it was all worth it. Our guide was kind and informed us extensively about all the highlights visited on this tour. It was a pity Peles castle was closed on Monday.

I did this tour about 4 months ago but today I remembered that I didnt write anything about it. It was really a perfect tour. Our guide (who's name I can't remember, he wears glasses and loves papanasi) was super communicative the whole day. You could tell that he really liked his job. The dracula's castle itself is a big dissappointment but the visit to Brasov was absolutely amaizing. As I'm used to travel alone, this kind of tours are a really good opportunity and the guide, who shared a papanasi with me and a couple of swedish young travelers made it perfect.

A very nice trip with a great guide Alex. The tour started at the moment we entered the car. Alex was able to give us a lot of informations on Bucarest and Romania in general. He was very nice, funny, talkative and reliable. The trip was totally worth it and the driving okay (not too long) as the landscape was beautiful. The Peles castle was amazing, we had a tour guide for both castles who were also great. Brasov is so cute, it would've been nice to be able to stay longer but maybe the traffic is too dense past 5pm Thanks a lot!

Great day to dive into Romanian history
Rene_S
, Jul 2020
I was lucky enough to get a private tour given the current covid circumstances. It was awesome. Mathias' knowledge of Romanian history goes beyond the castles and thus allowed for a lot more in depth discussions on the ride to and from. It was a great day, a long day, but I would highly recommend it and would gladly take family or friends and experience it again.
