    It would be better to put the bran castle trip to the last day en route to Bucharest as it was a long day of walking after the trip on day 3
    Explore! commented on this review
    Many thanks for your review and feedback on the itinerary - going into Bran castle is an optional visit which we will look at how best can fit into future itineraries.

    The walks were slightly more difficult than I was expecting and I would grade the holiday Challenging / Moderate, not the other way around.

    Thank you for your review and feedback on the walking grade - this is something that is reviewed bi-annually.

    Overall a very good trip. Peles Castle was not great - it's not a castle even - just a house. Omu hut potentially very nice but appalling overcrowding, heat and toilets.

    Great first trip with Explore. My only criticism was the lack of food for the intensity of the trekking but will remember to take my own additional snacks next time!
