What you'll do

LIMITED OFFER: FREE AIRPORT TRANSFERS OFFERED FOR GROUPS OF MIN. 2 GUESTS WHO BOOK THIS TRIP. IF THE TRIP IS SOLD OUT, please contact me, I'll add availability if possible! A minimum of 2 guests is required for this trip. For those of you not set on the (in)famous and overflowing with tourists Bran castle (falsely advertised by communists as Dracula's castle) we offer a more laid-back trip, where you'll get to actually enjoy your experience, visit small shops, taste Romanian food and learn about our history and culture. After visiting Peles castle*, where I will give you a private tour, we will head out to Brasov Old Town, where we'll take an extensive tour and then we'll have lunch at one of the best Romanian restaurants in the country :) We will tour the medieval Old City, visit the Black Church (2 Michelin stars), the narrowest street in Eastern Europe (1 Michelin star), the Old Council Square (2 Michelin stars), Katherine's Gate, the Weavers' Bastion etc. Here is the place where I will tell you the true story of Vlad Tepes - Dracula, a national hero, who walked these streets almost 600 years ago. You will also have free time for (window) shopping or taking a stroll down the cobbled streets of this beautiful city frozen in time. Entrance fees not included *On every Monday Peles is closed, so we'll visit its gardens and Sinaia old monastery instead of the castle.

Cristina

HI, I'm Cristina, a certified tour guide and I've been doing this tour for a few years, so I have a lot of experience and know the best places, routes, and how to shortcut the long lines... :). Why choose my experience? Unlike other "guides" who will not accompany you inside the castles because they have to pay for the ticket (not being authorized guides) I will be with you all the way to tell you the stories of the places you'll see, offering you a private tour and the true unique experience that you won't even know you've missed if you go with someone else :) More than that, someone else will drive, so you'll have my undivided attention during the whole trip! P.S. This experience is for guests who wish for a day trip at a leisurely pace. If you wish to see as many things as you can, please check my Three Castles & Brasov trip!
