What to Expect
Meet your English-speaking guide at your Bucharest hotel and depart in an air-conditioned minivan or car. Travel to Brasov and embark on a walking tour of the city's historical center. See highlights of the city, including Council Square, Black Church, Citadel of Brasov, Ecaterina's Gate, White Tower, Black Tower, Rope Street, Palace of Justice, and City Hall. Then head to the famous Bran Castle, built in the 14th-century and known as Dracula's Castle. Pause for a Romanian lunch at your own expense. Your final stop is Sinaia and a visit to Peles Castle, where you can admire the German renaissance architecture flanked by the Carpathian mountains. Make your way in your vehicle back to Bucharest. Conclude the tour with a drop-off at your hotel.

Nice to see but be advised there are many close, winding, narrow spiral stairways which must be navigated during the visit. Not very much to view within the castle but very nice views of the countryside.
