Fully private tour to famous destinations in Romania: Peles Castle, Bran Castle & the medieval town of Brasov - 13 hours


Get this day trip from Bucharest covering top Romanian attractions with your personal guide and enjoying the comfort of your own private car!
This tour includes essential Romanian landmarks: Peles Castle, emblematic of the Romanian royalty, considered one of the most beautiful European Princely palaces; the fabulous Bran Castle, famous due to its connection with Count Dracula character; and the fine medieval town of Brasov, all of them in the scenic natural setting of the Carpathian Mountains.
If Peles Castle is not open (generally on Mondays) we can still get there, see it from the exterior and take pictures, and we will take advantage of the extra time in Brasov.
In case you are more than 4 people and need a larger vehicle I can arrange for a minivan.

Please be aware that the tour takes normally around 13 hrs, in which 7 hrs is the driving. On weekends, holidays, and generally the peak season (June-August) traffic congestion or even traffic jams may occur, resulting in delays - one hour or more.

A Recent Review of this tour

Cristina was dependable and on time for our tour. She has a passion for history and we learned a lot about the history of Romania by traveling with her for 13 hours on this tour to Transylvania. Even though we were stuck in a traffic jam because of road repairs on the way to Bran Castle, she modified our tour with good humor. We strolled around Brasov found it to be a charming city. It was a long day but we would not have experienced it so well without Cristina's knowledge of the old town.
