A long but fulfilling day in the country
, Sep 2021
The two castles and the beautiful countryside were wonderful as was Braşov. Our guide, Stephania, was personable and extremely knowledgeable. Although it was 14 hours long, we highly recommend this tour!
Great Experience in Romania
, Sep 2021
Loved exploring Romania outside of Bucharest. This tour gave us a small, but enjoyable taste of what the country has to offer. Stefania was an amazing guide who had an extreme amount of knowledge. I would recommend her as a guide to anyone.
excellent day tour

Fabulous trip with our guide Mathew. Even with all the castles closed we got to see different parts of Romania and learn its history A small group is great as you do not have to wait around to go to your next destination
2 castles with one ‘crazy’ guide
, Feb 2020
Boogie our driver and guide certainly had the gift of talking. He included us in all the jokes and stories. At the end we were all singing to his favourite tunes. Time was tight at both castles (less than advertised) but time at Braşov was longer for time to get a meal and a stroll around this lovely town. A very pleasant and memorable day trip. Would recommend TravelMakers team.

The castles were neat and very pretty, but the thing that made the trip amazing was the tour guide, Boogie. He was very nice, generous, and overall helpful. Was never without a smile or joke, and made sure that we all had a good time and were well informed of everything that we were doing. I would recommend him to anyone that is interested in taking this trip.
Great day out

Great day out from start to finish, serban riga our tour guide made the day with his humour and knowledge, not forgetting the driver who did a tremendous job getting us around Romania.. castles are stunning and serban pulled out all the stops to get us in Dracula castle 1 hr after it actually closed due to bad traffic.. 100% recommend 😁😁
Very educational!

Christina was an amazing tour guide. She provided us with a deep understanding of Romanian history and did a great job of explaining the community history. I highly recommend everyone take this tour to get a better appreciation of Bucharest.

Long day but had to be in fairness to pack everything in. Boogie, our guide was excellent and spoke good English. Gave us loads of background information about Romania as well as knowing everything about the destinations. Be careful at Dracula's Castle!!!! The path is very steep and VERY slippery on a wet day (goodness knows what it would be like when icy/snowy). Coach was dead on time in the morning (early start so that was good). Overall, a good day out
