    Ita - there's only one Peles castle. If the tour advertises 2x castles, then they shouldn't be running the tour in a day where one or both castle(s) is/ are shut.

    Don’t really understand this question. We were collected by bus from a central pickup spot. Others were collected at their hotels en route. The tour is well worth the cost.
