What you'll do

I designed this tour so that you get a good flavour of Transylvania in just one day.

The tour start ~7:30 am, and ends ~21:00 pm I pick you up from your accommodation in Bucharest, and drive you right back in the evening.

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 can organize personalized 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 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!

Nous avons d'abord pris contact avec Sébastian afin de visiter le château de Peles et de Bran. Après une prise de contact, nous lui avons également demandé des conseils sur les choses à voir en Roumanie, et de fil en aiguille, Sébastian nous a préparé un circuit sur plusieurs jours, entre différentes villes et village et nous à accompagner sur place en tant que guide (ce qui est aussi pratique pour comprendre les gens sur place et ne pas avoir à conduire) ! Nous ne le remercierons jamais assez pour son travail de préparation (il nous a fait parvenir plusieurs programmes en avance et nous avons juste eu à choisir !) et d'accompagnement qui nous a permis de voir les nombreuses facettes de ce beau pays. Il a été très prévenant tout le long du trajet et nous a fait sentir à l'aise immédiatement. Il transmet sa passion pour son pays. Bref une très belle expérience ! A recommander sans hésiter.

L'expérience était fantastique, Sebastian parle très bien français et il est venu me chercher directement chez moi. J'ai adoré la visite des châteaux et de la ville de Brasov. On a fait des arrets entre les châteaux et la ville pour voir de magnifiques panoramas !! Je le recommande vivement 😀

What an amazing day, got two visit two castles Peles and Bran; two that I’ve really been wanting to see both in one day even got a chance to see the Peles smaller castle guest house and monastery. Seb picked me up at my hotel at the agreed time and we went nice and early to the first castle before the big tour groups came. He also stopped at some nice viewpoints along the way and in Braşov to finish. Bran castle was really beautiful as well where the famous Dracula story is from. What I really liked about this tour was it was almost like having a private one only two other people, and we weren’t rushed at all like on the big bus tours it was very relaxed and we were able to take our time. Was nice that he had lots of water and snacks at it is a very long day but definitely worth it. Thanks again :)

Look no further than booking this tour with Sebastian. What brought me to book this experience was with a local. 13.5 hours seems long, but from pick up and drop off, the day was spaced out with activities, lookout points for photos and I felt that we weren't rushed going from one place to the other. That's what I enjoyed the most. We got to explore all things at our own pace with ample time. He even suggested restaurants in Brasov with must eat/try foods. And since there were 2 others, we and Sebastian all bonded and snacked on the car drive. That was a bonus - a small group makes it more personal. Since it was Martisor, he also left us with a little memento. This tour with Sebastian is a must book!

If you plan to visit peles and bran castle in private or not in big group, then you wont be wrong chose Sebastian as your guide. He organized everything accordingly and will text you one day before the tour. Well prepared and send all information about the castle, for example peles castle ticket only accept cash, the prices and so on. Then during the tour, he will prepare a lot of water and snack just to make sure we are not hungry for the entire trip, it show how caring and thoughtful he is. He didn't even rush us during the tour, instead just take more time to explore the places. He know the secrets places to take nice pictures. Recommended places where to eat and what to eat and where to go in brans city. In my opinion, I doesn't feel like he is my guide instead I feel like going out with a friend instead. He genuinely and sincerely treat everyone with care. You can see how passionate he was during the tour. Overall you all need to experiences the best guide ever, Sebastian. Anything question or enquries you can ask him and you will have the answer :)
