Visited Peles and Bran castles, Braşov, Sighisoara, Viscri, Salina Turda and Alba Iulia with guide Serban Riga. He is excellent! Always in good mood, knows everything and everyone, not shy to ask anyone around and get all you need. Big van for two of us in 4 star hotels. Very formal and punctual. Thank you Serban and Dan!

Best day in Romania
We came for just few days to visit Bucharest and after some hesitation (because of long grive) decided to spend last day in Transylvania.
It was an excellent experience to visit countryside and 2 castles and mainly because our cool guide Boogie. He definitely loves what he's doing and making journey pleasant and knowledgeable.

Brilliant trip
Boogie the tour guide make this very long day absolutely fantastic!
The day was fast, entertaining, educational and cultural. Boogie was a wealth of knowledge and brought the tour to life by filling in the gaps. Pelles castle was just breathtaking- I wish we had done to overnight option as it was such a beautiful place with much to see.
I thoroughly recommend it, but do the longer overnight option!!

Take this tour!
My sole reason for coming to Romania was to see Dracula’s Castle and this tour was perfect! Boogie was our tour guide and he was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and informative. He had all the answers and ran the tour very well giving times, meeting places, and what to expect. LOVED THIS! I saw that some people complained about getting back late (later than 21:00), but traffic is something beyond their control. ALSO, if you take this tour and a guide says to meet at a certain time, BE THERE ON TIME! Don’t hold up the group!

Tour recommanded
I did the tour today as really private tour because I was alone with the really cool guide "Boogy". All the places where we went were really places to see in Romania. Do it by your own if you have a car or with this tour if you want a guide who will answer all your questions.
To go to the castle you will have to sweat a bit but the view over there is really nice. But don't expect to see a castle like the one in Bran. This one is in ruins.
One the way back from the castle, I was specially lucky to see a brown bear few meters from the way.

Then just enjoy the tour...

Thanks a lot to my guide Boogy for this amazing tour.

Dear Mikko, Thank you very much for taking the time to write us this amazing review. Although Bran Castle is more known than Poenari Citadel, both of them offer stunning views over Transylvania, as you already noticed. You were luckier than most of the people who visit the citadel, as you also saw the bear, our well know brown bear (I hope it was friendly). Kind regards from Bucharest.

Castles tour with Serban.
We did the two castles tour with Serban and Travelmaker. We visited Peles Palace, have lunch in the town of Braşov and then visit Bran Castle. Serban was great. He is very informative and funny. On the bus through the city and country side, he introduced us to his city and the beautiful country mountain. Guide us through the crowded castles and gave us tips on the dos and donts. The drive back is fairly long and every one was quiet after a long day. Serban leave us to rest but quietly pointed out the mountain views or historical sites along the drive. We enjoy the tour very much and recommended it.

One tip if you want to buy a Romanian embroidered blouse, you should buy it in Braşov. There are many styles and the price is half of what you would pay in the city.
