Overview
Peles Castle, Bran Castle, and Brasov are all highlights of Romania, but if you’re based in Bucharest, it can be tricky to tick all three of your list without hiring a car. On this tour, visit the two castles and take a walking tour of Brasov in the company of an English-speaking guide. Travel comfortably in an air-conditioned minivan or car.

Great private tour! We had limited time due to a flight in the evening and were able to see both Brun and Pelles castles in addition to the monastery near Pelles. Gabby was great at keeping us on track to make a 7pm flight home.He provided a great deal of history and knowledge.
