About
This tour combines sightseeing with history and culture. If your time in Brasov is limited you can tick two very important boxes of Transylvania by visiting the Bran (Dracula) Castle and the Transfagarasan highway in the same day. While you can visit Bran 365 days per year, the mountain road is only open a few months during the summer and autumn. During the Transfagarasan day trip we drive close to the altitude of 2050 meters above sea level. On the road we stop at the Balea Waterfall. Here we check out the souvenir shops and taste some of the local snacks. At the Balea Lake we can have a proper lunch, after we hike around the lake. More souvenirs are available here too. Other short stops for spectacular roadside landscapes are also included. The Bran Castle tour is done either at the start or at the end of the day, depending on the day of the week.

Amazing tour & guide
Oct 2019 • Solo
I took the tour except for the Bran Castle, substitute is the watermill ( interesting history). Vlad is highly knowledgeable, helpful, accommodating, friendly, a tour guide that is all in one, He helped me be able to cut cost & join the tour w/ someone.You need to be @ least 2 or else pay it as a 1=2.Along the way we made stops to the small shops,waterfalls,the highway, lake. I didnt feel rushed, had enough of pictures, adequate time. Good conversation along the way, he imparted a lot about his knowledge about his country, places.The car is clean, free water & apples🙂. it's an amazing experience. It's also better to call to book, if you have any questions.Thanks Vlad & more power to Etours.😘😘
