The tour guide has superpowers: avoiding the lines! Each entrance is 20-30 Lei each - be sure to bring cash. ($1USD=1 Lei; 1 Lei=25 USD cents).

We were picked up at 9.15 and returned to our hotel a bit after 2.30pm and we didn’t do Peles Castle. If you text the company they should be able to tell you.
