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.

Great tour
Our tour guide was punctual and was very knowledgeable

We recommend this tour company for sure

They are able to accommodate us within very short notice which we appreciated

Pele Castle was amazing, Bram Castle was phenomenal
Love Brasov
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.
