Amazing Castles(Dracula, Peles) + Brasov

București, Romania

Experience hosted by Sebastian

12.5 hours, Hosted in English and French

What you'll do

I designed this tour so that you get a good flavour of Transylvania in just one day.

The tour start ~7:30 am, when I pick you up from your accommodation in Bucharest, and drive you right back in the evening.

We’ll be visiting some of the most beautiful places in Romania: the royal family’s Castle in Sinaia (Peles Castle), the paramount Castle of Dracula, and then the medieval, Old Town of Brasov.

From Bucharest, the first stop is after a ~2h drive, at the Peles Castle. There you’ll visit the castle, admire its elaborate Neo-Renaissance architecture, and fill your lungs with mountain air.

We’ll then drive for ~1h, scenic mountain road, to the Dracula Castle (in the village of Bran). You’ll visit the famous castle of Dracula (Vlad Tepes king), discover the legends, as well as the history of this place.

Our last stop will be in the medieval Old Town of Brasov. Here you can have lunch/dinner at restaurants (not included in the price), try out Romanian traditional dishes or unwind with a coffee or wine in one of the city’s cosy café.

You’ll then have free time to explore the city of Brasov. To wrap everything up, I will then drive you to some amazing places where few tourists usually make it.

The last stint is a direct drive back to Bucharest, of about 2:30h

Note: Before booking, please send me a message to check availability and weather conditions.

I’m Sebastian, born and raised in the beautiful, mystical region of Transylvania.

I grew up in Brasov, a spectacular medieval town, at just a stone’s-throw away from Dracula’s Castle. When I started university I moved to Bucharest, in 2010.

I’ve travelled a lot all over Romania and Europe and I would like to share with others the Romanian beautiful places.

I am passionate about history and geography, I speak English and French, and have been showing guests around since 2016.

I can organize personalized trips in my native Transylvania (Brasov, Sibiu, Sighisoara, Dracula’s Castle), as well all across Romania (Moldovia, Danube Delta, Transfagarasan etc.). Just write me a message, and we can about points of interests.

So, if you want to discover Romania with a local, yet widely-traveled, passionate guide, look no further! I’m your man!

Extrêmement bien accueilli par Sebastian, guide super sympa qui nous a expliqué l'histoire de la Roumanie en français. Sebastian n'a pas hésité à faire un ou deux détours pour nous montrer d'autres bâtiments historiques. Très à l'écoute et attentionné, je recommande à 100% !

This is an incredible experience! Sebastian was an incredible host. He provided snacks and water, which was life saving since my group had done a pub crawl the night before. Sebastian answered all our questions, knew a lot about the areas we visited, and was very willing to go on a muddy hike so we could get those gram worthy photos of the Bran Castle. Absolutely recommend to anyone who wants to visit Romania!

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic day, we're glad we chose to do all 3 locations in a day, going by car and having a guide means less faffing and having to organise trains of buses and we got to here a proper insight into the country and it's history. Sebastian is also very polite and wants to make sure you are always ok along the way.

Excellent tour! Sebastian took us on a wonderful excursion through Peleș Castle, Bran Castle, and Brașov. He provided thorough context for the locations, answered all of our questions thoughtfully, and made several great recommendations. 10/10 recommend! :)

Fantastic way to see Bran and Peles castles on a day trip from Bucharest. Sebastian is an energetic guide, exceptional driver, and shared a wealth of information. Sebastian was very clear in communication and made the journey very comfortable. I would highly recommend Sebastian for a tour.
