Two Castles in One Day - Small Group Tour of Peles Castle and Dracula's Castle

A great all day tour in the Transylvania region to learn about the history and culture outside of the city of Bucharest. Tour guide Andrei was great, full of lots of facts and stories. I highly recommend it. ...Larry W., USA – See more reviews

This is a full day tour from Bucharest to Transylvania on a very picturesque route through the Carpathian Mountains, allowing you to discover two of the most beautiful Romanian castles.

Peles Castle, erected between 1873 and 1914, has been the summer residence of the Romanian Royal family and it is the most visited museum in Romania.

Bran Castle (14th century) has been serving for ages as a military fortress controlling the entry route to Transylvania and it is nowadays frequently associated with Dracula's myth.

On our way back, we will stop for a short walk in Brasov downtown, just to show you how a typical Transylvanian old city looked like.
