I designed this tour so that you get a good flavour of Transylvania in just one day.
The tour starts at 7:30 am and ends at 21:00 pm. I pick you up from your accommodation in Bucharest and drive you right back in the evening. The schedule of this tour is flexible, so you will not be rushed in visiting the places, you’ll have time to deeply enjoy each destination.
If you are searching for a small group trip, this is the perfect choice for you. 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. Since I’m born and raised in Brasov, I provide you with a local gem only known by the locals.
From Bucharest, the first stop is after a 2h drive, at the Peles Castle in Sinaia. 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.

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 organise personalised 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 talk 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!
