We sat in the front seat, next to the driver, in a fully occupied tourist van. We saw it all. At one point, our driver reached 148 km (or 91 mph) in an 80 km speed limit zone. He routinely traveled at 120 - 135 km in 70 to 80 km speed limit zones. We traveled on four lane

Hello Ernie, I can say that regarding the speed it is absolutely not true that our tour guide was speeding. All our minivans are gps monitored to avoid to speed and also for the safety. I checked all the history of the day and i can assure that he wasn't going with that speed. Yes he drove with 85 km/h (52 miles/h) where the speed limit was 70 km/h (43 miles/h) and i can take fully this responsability because it is not meaning he was speeding but just maximizing your time to the museums and less in the car. In the same time probably he could take a speed ticket for this but not for his fault but because you arrived with 20 minutes late twice during the day and all the other tourists, that by the way nobody complained about it, had to suffer having less time for themselves. In any case, to don't stay so much in the van, now we have two options: See the Castles in Transilvania (Peles and Bran Castle ( Dracula's Castle) without Brasov city or have a 2 days tour in Transylvania. Thank you anyway for joining our tour even if the review it is not reflecting the reality. Kind regards, Trip2Ro

The views on the tour were great, but please see them with someone else. Our tour guide was horrible on this trip. The day started off with him showering us with his opinions about how he should be able to smoke in any place he wishes, because he is a human, that is his right,

Hello, The discussion about smoking was started from other traveler and he gave also his opinion since he was asked for it by the other person. It is normal and polite to answer to the questions of the travelers . The tour guide didn’t showered anybody…. The joke was about taking pictures and the tour guide explained about the spots where to take photos, and also about the photo fee at the Peles Castle that everybody needed to know about it in case you wanted to take photos inside. ALL our cars are non-smoking cars and I think that this says much about it. Giving explanations and talking about history doesn’t mean that you are giving lectures but means that we do our job in presenting actual and past facts of economy, industry, politics, ecc. We recommend to you in the future to have a private tour where nobody speaks since having a tour guide that explains history and other facts probably it is not your tour type. When the tour guide saw that most of the tourists were sleeping in the van (it is normal to be silence since people are sleeping…..) he stopped to explain the history. Unfortunately during the day it was a lot of traffic and you arrived a little bit later in Bucharest. At the gas station during the stop 2 persons were sitting at the table while all the others were in the van and he asked you if they are having dinner in order to don’t make the others to wait in the van but to enjoy also their free time better since they needed to wait… Our tour guides NEVER asked for gratuities and we won’t make it in the future. Probably you got confused by the fact that he was always being polite and opening to you the door of the car and you though that he was waiting for a tip. It is not the case, we always open the door to the travelers after we checked that there are no cars passing and this is for your safety. It is interesting that you were the only one complaining about the tour even if we received positive reviews from the other travelers that were in the same tour. We don’t consider that this review is reflecting the reality and I would recommend to don’t use any more in the future the f* word so many times while you are in a shared tour with other people as it happened during the tour. Kind regards, Trip2Ro

A long day but worth the visit . Our driver guide , Alex , was informative and friendly. Please remember to give these guides a tip if they give you a good day . A Dutch guy on our trip exerted full value from the guide and left without tipping. Tight git , shame on you .
