  •  famous Dracula Castle in Bran
  •  Peles Royal Castle in Sinaia
  •  Brasov medieval city


This tour starts with private pick-up from your hotel.

At 8:00 a.m. we will start our journey towards the Bucegi Mountains and Prahova Valley, one of the most attractive mountain regions in Romania.

Now we enter the mountain region to discover a valley that was deeply loved by the romanian royal family convincing them to settled a beautiful summer residence in Sinaia. Here we will visit the marvelous Peles Castle, probably the most beautiful castle in Romania, built in an enchanting bavarian style by our first King.

on towards another marking monument in the romanian landscape, the Bran Castle, or also known as Dracula Castle. We will have here enough time to unravel all its mysteries and learn more about its legends and history.

After we’ve seen these important landmarks, we will arrive in one of Romania’s most beautiful towns, a town which lies right at the feet of the mountains: Brasov.

The city was built by saxons and was remarkably preserved throughout time, housing now Romania’s biggest gothic church, named The Black Church after a major fire. Once we’ve learned the stories that this beautiful city has to offer, we can enjoy a well-deserved leisure break in the old town. Numerous possibilities of spending time lie ahead since there is still so much more to see here!

Now that we’ve seen and learnt so much, the ride back home will be the best opportunity to meditate, debate and discuss about our trip.

We can’t wait to hear your opinion!

We will be back in Bucharest at noon, around 20:00 p.m.

A great tour and well-driven. Alina was highly informative, enthusiastic, a true professional. The day was to a good plan, good value, a very relaxing way to see the interior too, and we also had an enjoyable chat about Romanian life past & present. The programmes we viewed on the last leg of the journey gave a lovely context to the Carpathians also. Memorable ! I know I shall return to Romania and/or the region with others, in which case shall be in touch. I’d recommend anyone to do the same !

Transylvania and Dracula Castle Full-Day Tour
Very interesting and enjoyable tour, if you want to spend one day discovering this region and learnig about the history/culture of the country this is exactly what you are looking for. Not much effort to make, Alina came to pick us up directly at our hotel and from that you only have to relax and enjoy until she brings you back directly to your hotel at the end of the tour. In addition the staff was very nice and super helpful. I highly recommend it!

Experiencing the Wonders of Transylvania
I just recently spend a few days in Bucharest, and being so close to Transylvania I wanted to see the region. I found Authentic Romania Tours, and they took great care of us. They pick you up in a private van at your hotel. Alina the owner was our guide and she was very informative and knowledgeable on the region. We went to the city of Sinaia first and visited the Sinaia Casino and the monetary. Afterwards we went to see Peles Castle which was absolutely marvelous. It was closed on Monday so we didn’t get to go inside, but that was ok with us. Next, we went to the town of Brasov which was very picturesque. We had lunch in the town and had some free time to wonder around. Our last stop was Bran Castle which was spectacular. Some of the best souvenir shopping is just outside the castle.
We had a fabulous time in Transylvania, our only regret was that we didn’t spend two days there. Authentic Romania was fabulous and I would definitely use them again for other tours in the area when we go back to Romania.

A Fantastical Step Back in Time
From start to finish this tour was awesome. We went on the full day tour to Peles, Bran & Brasov from Bucharest. Our guide Alina was knowledgeable with not only historical but practical information (such as the best places for traditional Romanian cuisine & best camera shots). Both Alina & Gabriel were flexible when it came to various stops along the way. This tour is a must if you’ve only got a spare day in Romania!
