Triumph Arch, Bucharest
Meet with your guide and set out for your Transylvania trip.
Peles Castle, Sinaia, Prahova County, Southern Romania
Start your day trip with Peles Castle (inside visit), set in the scenic mountain resort of Sinaia, also called the Pearl of the Carpathians. Tour the Romanian royal family’s former summer residence, which showcases a magnificent palace in the German Renaissance style. Built at the foot of the mountains between 1873 and 1914 by Carol I, the first Romanian king, the palace is considered one of the most beautiful of its kind in Europe.
Brasov Historical Center, Brasov, Brasov County, Central Romania, Transylvania
Next is the town of Brasov, previously known as Kronstadt. Its well-kept historical center filled with centuries-old homes connected by small streets paved with cobblestone retains its German medieval charm. Your walking tour of this lovely town starts from the main square, which features the Gothic Black Church (Biserica Neagră – inside visit), old City Hall, watch towers, walls around the former citadel, and the narrowest street in Europe.
Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle), Bran, Brasov County, Central Romania, Transylvania
Final stop at Bran Castle, commonly known as Dracula’s Castle (inside visit). The imposing construction, originally built as a fortress at the former border between Wallachia and Transylvania, looks out over a valley from its strategic position. The function of this medieval landmark is evident through its grandiose towers as well as its winding narrow staircases and passages. The Gothic appearance adds to the allure while you learn about its infamous ruler, Vlad the Impaler, and its legendary vampire. Conclude your tour with return transport to your hotel in Bucharest.

A very interesting tour, especially Peles and Brasov. Bran is a bit overrated because of the story. We had Emanuel as our driver/guide, who was very helpful and he also told us a lot of background information. One Excellence Tours has the best guides! See ya again in Romania!
It was excellent. Marius was terrific - very informative and knowledgeable and at the same time with a wonderful way to transmit the information and make it interesting. We loved Peles and Brasov. Not so overwhelmed with Dracula Palace.
An incredibly beautiful and extremely informative tour of the stunning Braşov, Peleş Castle and the infamous Castle Bran! Alex was a wonderful guide with so much knowledge during the tour. Effortless pick up and drop off too, highly highly recommend!
