    Pass By: Old Town, Bucharest Romania

    At 8 AM, your private guide will pick you up from your hotel in Bucharest and take you on a tour that you won't easily forget. It's just a one day trip, but you'll go through three different ages: a king’s palace (Peles), a vampire’s castle (Bran) and a Teutonic town (Brasov). It's time travelling time!



    Stop At: Peles Castle, Str. Pelesului 2, Sinaia 106100 Romania

    At 8 AM, your private guide will pick you up from your hotel reception and take you on a day trip that you won't easily forget.

    First off? Go royal! Step into the shoes of kings & queens and explore Peles Palace – the former private retreat of Romania’s royal family. The beautiful mountain scenery and elegant gardens built on terraces add even more charm to this majestic 19th century palace. Inside, everything spells luxury: golden chandeliers, walnut tree carvings, marble fountains, secret chambers and a royal armory. Your private guide will offer a fully guided tour at the site.

    Driving time from Bucharest to Peles: 2h 15min (short stop for refreshments/restroom included)

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle), Str. General Traian Mosoiu nr. 24, Bran 507025 Romania

    For our 2nd major stop, you’ll go even further back in time, during the late middle ages. Myths and legends swirl around the massive Bran Castle, a stone giant guarding the pass into Transylvania since the 14th century. Count Dracula vs Prince Vlad the Impaler. Fiction vs facts. Your private guide will help you explore the castle, offering a fully guided tour inside. After the visit at the castle, you'll have a short stop nearby for lunch.

    Driving time from Peles to Bran Castle: 1h

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Council Square, Piata Sfatului, Brasov Romania

    The tour’s grand finale? An epic medieval fantasy, started by the Teutonic Knights during their first decades of existence. We’ll visit the city of Brasov, founded by the knights in 1211 on top of an old Dacian site. Dramatically overlooked by Mount Tampa, the city’s medieval core is a myriad of narrow cobblestone streets, craft guilds, fortified towers, gatehouses or medieval decorated inns. Your guide will take you on a short walking tour around Council Square, the Black Church, Rope Street, Ecaterina Gate etc.

    Driving time from Bran Castle to Brasov: 45 min

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Black Church (Biserica Neagra), Curte Honterus Johannes nr. 2, Brasov 500025 Romania

    Our last stop before ending the walking tour of Brasov Old Town is at the famous Black Church, located right next to Council Square. After visiting the church exterior and learning about its tumultuous past, it's time to head back to Bucharest.

    Driving time from Brasov to Bucharest: 3 hours, give or take, depending on traffic. (stop for refreshments/restroom included)

    Duration: 15 minutes
