Description

The day begins in Bucharest with a road trip to our first destination, Sinaia, a small resort town in the Carpathian Mountains. In order to get there, we’ll pass through the scenic Prahova Valley – Romania’s key destination for winter sports lovers.

The first stop on the tour is the splendid Peleș Castle, which was built by the first king of Romania, Carol I of Hohenzollern, in the 19th century. It served as the summer residence for the Romanian royal family for several years.

We’ll then visit one of the most famous castles in the world, Bran Castle, also known as Dracula’s Castle. Dating back to the 13th century, it was built on top of an older wooden castle by the Saxons of Transylvania.

Afterwards, we’ll continue on to the city of Brașov, which is a popular Romanian tourist destination. It was founded by Teutonic Knights in 1211 and exudes a distinct medieval ambiance. Walking through the Council Square, we’ll reach the Old Town Hall in the heart of the city.

Amazing!
Couldn't have asked for a better day trip! Our tour guide Stefan was absolutely outstanding, he was very knowledgable on all the sites that we visited. Also, although one of the sites were closed they made sure to accommodate us with an alternate option. If you have a small group of two or three people this is exactly what you want. It was very well organized and we felt like we were able to see and get the most out of a day trip. Highly recommend this day tour!

I knew a little about Peles Castle, not much, but this made my experience so much better. All that architecture and the stories that our guide Andrei told us made it such a rich experience. The guide explained so nicely and was so helpful all the time. I so glad that we went on this trip.

Great tour of the Communist Era
This tour was really great. I visited all the main sigths of the communist era in Bucharest, including the Palace of the Parliament (about 1.5 hours tour) and Ceaușescu's house (about 45 mins). I asked my guide about a snack lunch and was taken to the local market, where I had traditional small sausages and a beer with the locals, which was great.
Fantastic tour with an excellent guide
This is a brilliant full day tour for anyone who is interested in the history of Romania and the Ceausescu period in particular. Our guide Florin was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and shared his personal experiences and those of his family. Even though we booked the tour at short notice he had managed to get us tickets into the People's Palace and the Spring Palace, the Ceausescu's unbelievably decadent home. He also tailored the tour to our interests, showing us an exhibition on the area of Bucharest cleared to build the parliament and taking us to the Ceausescus' tomb. An invaluable day out!

my amazing day trip from Cluj!
I was in Cluj for a day and I didn't expect to see so many things in just a day. In the morning the guide came at the hotel and we went to Turda saltmine were there are some spectacular sights. the guide provided interesting information about the things we saw. From there we went to Rimetea village where we had a delicious lunch with specifical natural products and goodies. In the afternoon we went to Alba Iulia city were we visited the old fortress and in the evening we came back to Cluj Napoca. I was both fun and interesting, due to Rolandia that provided us with the best services.
